-- Studio founder Phil Lemon is using the Australian crowd funding sight http://pozible.com/
celebritysmack to raise $5000 to pay for the game’s sound track and a version for Android devices (iOS will be first). The rewards for people who contribute include having their face and name at the start of levels, on in-game collectables and as the drivers of limousines. One lucky supporter will get their name chosen at random to “Be Da Boss” for a level and have their face on a bad guy flying a helicopter that attacks other players.
Phil said “crowd funding is a great way to get gamers involved and feel a sense of ownership for your game. I like the idea of rewarding players and what better way than having their face and name in the game. It sure beats a big list on a website.” The crowd funding campaign runs until November 15, 2012.
About Celebrity Smack
In Celebrity Smack you swipe bobble headed celebrities before they get away and catch the loot they throw out, while rescuing falling puppies and avoiding bodyguards. The aim is to complete levels in order to earn gold tokens which unlock further celebrities. Ninety Nine tokens are needed to unlock “The Greatest Celebrity of Them All” and finish the game. Game play is a whacky mix of Fruit Ninja and Whack-a-mole;
with upgrades and boss fights thrown in. There are also butlers, paparazzi and the funny Thor Smackers to assist players when levels get tricky. Celebrity Smack has Apple Game Center integration and will be available for $0.99 on iTunes in the last week of November with Android available early December.
