The Hockey Experiment - 3D Arcade Style Ice Hockey
Hey Everyone, Dev here
Ninth Dimension Studios is amped to announce the release of its first game title, The Hockey Experiment™, available May 2010 for the iPhone and iPod Touch, which will be priced at $3.99. From the unhinged minds of the development team comes a very unusual grouping of hockey players known as Mischievous Muckety Mucks™, who were brought to life through the use of full 3D graphics and Motion Capture Technology, resulting in one of the only complete Ice Hockey titles offered for the iPhone / iPod Touch platform.
This game title has been developed through the collaboration of Ninth Dimension Studios, a young and upcoming studio specializing in digital animation and 3D modeling, and Bitwise Design, Inc., a top-tier programming and game design company. This game has been developed solely by three individuals over the past five months. From Ninth Dimension Studios is Jonathan Sabella, creating all artwork and animation, and Brian Kritzberg, handling audio and musical score compositions. From Bitwise Design, Inc., Ray Graham, developer of published iPhone / iPod Touch titles such as Karnival and Hospital Havoc, coded the entire game.

These enable crazy-fast slap-shots, lightning-quick skating, and extra powerful checking. Need to score a quick two points? No problem, just skate over the on-ice “Clutch-Shot” areas where a score from this position is worth two goals!
HAVE YOUR SOUP AND EAT IT TOO
Mischievous Muckety Mucks™ don’t have fun playing Hockey - or anything else for that matter - if there are a bunch of stupid rules in place; but be careful, because too much confrontation with another player might spur a fight. And we certainly wouldn’t want that to happen since we all know that fighting has no place in a gentlemen’s game such as Hockey. And be forewarned, these guys have an insatiable and downright dangerous lust for soups of all kinds … It’s strange, we know!
BECOME THE GREATEST EVER TO GRACE THE MAGNIFICENCE THAT IS … UGHH, YOU GET THE IDEA
Play for all the world-famous Hockey teams you know and love, like um … well, like the Brothzillas™, you know, the team whose mascot is a dinosaur who pukes up Minestrone soup. Don’t forget their bitter rivals the Lunatics™, whose team manager only signs players who are fresh from the insane asylum. There are way more teams to choose from, but we can’t seem to recall the names at the moment. Any who …
THINK OF THE WONDERS THAT AWAIT
Practice your skills in Exhibition Mode or shoot for the glory in Tournament Mode. Keep in mind that the more you play the more you are rewarded. Rack up enough career goals or wins to unlock cool new teams not available anywhere else. You can also earn special trophies as in-game milestones are reached, like the “Mmm, Generic Cheese Puffs” Trophy that’s awarded to those who have won their 250th game. If you want to be rewarded with our other ridiculously clever, humorous, and witty quips that adorn each trophy, you’ll have to play.
BUY OUR EXTRA MASTERPIECES … IF YOU WANT
Keep in mind that if you’re obsessed with these funny little jerks, like us, you’ll want to check out the in-game store where additional teams can be drooled over and purchased. But if you ruin your keyboard or mobile device due to an electrical short circuit, that’s your own fault!
