Battle on the Block - First killer App for iPad

Get your hands on the iPads first Killer Game today!!!

Battle of the Block puts you in the shoes of one of the four neighborhood rivals. Help your group capture the block by recruiting members of all rivals and pitting them against each other!

Battle of the Blockô elevates the game play of Blackjack and the scoring system of tug-of-war to a completely new level. Espada Entertainmentís technical and creative team used high-impact original artwork and functionality to maximize user interaction with iPadís unique technology and surface size.

With both single and local multiplayer capability, users are able to play Battle of the Blockô with friends or family members directly across the table from one another.

In the weeks to come, keep up with our updates that include seasonal and alternative theme packs, visual upgrades, new gameplay and features based on user feedback, joker bonuses and additional tie-breakers.

FEATURES
- Single Player and Local Multiplayer
- Gameplay inspired by Blackjack
- Exhilarating scoring system inspired by Tug-of-War

I picked this up yesterday. It's actually really fun, especially with another person. The back and forth nature of it + the tie breakers makes it a fantastic pick up and play game.
