App description: Toss little messy monsters called BUs into your opponents courts while keeping your own area clean. Face off in two or four player matches on a single iPad. Board game meets physical game meets touch screen.

HaluBuBum is a multiplayer iPad game where players keep their corners of the screen clean as a frenzy of messy creatures called BUs are tossed around like hot potatoes. The competition is fierce as players try and balance tossing BUs at opponents with scrubbing their own area clean. Its only a minute long and the chaos grows as the messy BUs split from 2 to 4 to 12! The real game happens around the iPad as players trash talk each other, fight over their borders, and frantically poke and rub at the screen.

We are writing to let you know we just released our first iOS game on iPad on March 15th. It’s called HaluBuBum!

HaluBuBum is an in person multiplayer iPad game of where players toss little messy monsters called BUs into their opponents courts while keeping their own area clean. Players face off in two or four player matches on a single iPad. Board game meets physical game meets touch screen.

Take the communal environment of a board game and add real time physics and multi-touch. HaluBuBum is built around in person multiplayer play that takes advantage of the whole screen. Players interact with one another and speak to each other without the barrier of controllers and a TV screen between them.

The base game, consisting of 3 game modes (4 player, 2 player horizontal, and 2 player vertical) is free for a limited time. We have a pack of more game variations that we will be releasing as an in-app purchase sometime later this year. We are also working on a configurable control panel to turn on and off features similar to the control panel of Super Smash Brothers so that players can set up various fun game types to face off with their friends.

The game will be on the app store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/halububum!/id789351325 and is free for a limited time.
