Pocket Gamer Previews Bailout Bonanza

http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhon...ws.asp?c=11892

Hands on with Bailout Bonanza on iPhone



Good suggestions too. We'll get the "sensitivity slider" in there.

Crossing fingers that this releases today or tomorrow.

Also, news on our charity pledge:

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2009/03/prweb2201254.htm

As part of the launch of Bailout Bonanza, PlayScreen is pledging to donate 5% of each sale to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, providing food for people in need. With "Bailout Bonanza" gamers can channel their frustration over bailout abuse into helping the people hit hardest by this economic crisis.

A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.

It was the right thing to do.

Note to developers: You CAN'T mention this (charity) in a product description. It is against a rule.

Can you mention that 30% of each sale is donated to Apple?

Good one ian!

But it's good to see devs donating to causes other than their own.
