App description: Help Agent Dan McFox catch his suspects! This fast action game challenges you to pick out the right faces from a crowd in three different game modes! Play alone, challenge a Facebook friend or gather everyone together to fight it out with our unique multi-screen mode.

Challenge Mode

Challenge a friend and play head-to-head to see who can catch their suspects quickest. Take turns in your own time against as many friends as you like.

Invite your Facebook friends or jump right in against the next available opponent.

Solo Mode

It's just you against the clock! Sixty seconds to find as many suspects as you can!

Earn Game Center achievements and see how you rank in the daily worldwide leaderboards.

Multi-screen mode

Grab as many friends or relatives as you can find and put all your iPhones, iPod touches and iPads together to make one huge playing surface.

Split into two teams and see who can find all of their suspects first. One team has to hunt down men, the other is looking for women.

Multi-screen gameplay is a real-world social experience, which often involves intertwining limbs and digits with nearby opponents as you battle to reach the far corners!

Lightwood Games is proud to announce its latest game is now available, and coming to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch near you. Or, ideally, to many of them all at once.

Head Hunter Challenge is the latest game to be built around Lightwoods multi-screen gaming technology, which allows up to 16 devices to be connected via Bluetooth in order to create a single, enlarged playing surface. Players then compete in teams, often intertwining limbs and digits in order to reach the far corners of the game.

Its a unique concept: a real world social gaming experience where you literally face your opponents as you battle for territory and to win the game!

Devices can be connected in almost any arrangement with the largest configuration 4 x 4 iPads making a multitouch game thats about the size of a 48-inch television. Connecting in a straight line, its possible to create more than 3 metres of playing surface!

Head Hunter Challenge is the logical follow-up to Plasma Party, which was released on the App Store earlier in the year after receiving praise at the GameHack event where the app was first created. Lightwood won two awards at the event for their first foray into multi-screen gaming, Most Innovative Idea and Best Use of Mobile, and pledged to keep developing the technology.

In Head Hunter Challenge, players attempt to help Agent Dan McFox, a professional head hunter who, coincidentally, actually is a fox, round up all the suspects hes looking for. Given a particular description, such as with brown hair or wearing glasses, the player has to pick out all the matching faces from a crowd of people.

For those that dont always have friends nearby to play with, the app offers two other game modes: Solo and Challenge.

Solo mode is played against the clock, with sixty seconds to find as many suspects as you can. Players earn Game Center achievements and can see their high scores ranked in daily worldwide leaderboards.

Challenge mode is played in a turn-by-turn format against an online opponent usually a Facebook friend. Each player tackles the same game to see who can amass the most points while looking for the same five sets of suspects.

Those whose friends do not have iPhones or iPads need not despair. There is a Facebook app that allows anyone to play the challenge mode through any web browser. An Android app is also expected to hit the app stores next week.

Head Hunter Challenge is available in the App Store now. It is a free app supported by in-game advertising, which can be removed for $1.99 (UK 1.49).

There's also a Facebook version of the Challenge mode, and an Android version coming very soon! We're hoping this helps the game spread a little more!
