LONDON– 21 stApril 2011 - 2waytraffic, a global leader in the development, distribution and brand management of light entertainment, and DR Studios, an independent developer specializing in simulation entertainment experiences, have today released Dragons’ Den, a game based on the hit reality TV show across Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices.
Dragons’ Den is available internationally in the Apple App Store priced at $1.99/€1.99/£1.79 on iPhone and iPod Touch, and $2.99/€2.99/£2.79 on iPad.
A BBC2 flagship show which is broadcast in over 30 countries worldwide, the Dragons’ Den TV seriesfeatures entrepreneurs pitching their business ideas in order to secure investment finance from a panel of venture capitalists. This marks the first time a game based on Dragons’ Den has been released on any mobile platform.
Playing as one of five virtual Dragons, all with different skill sets, each player will be pitched three different products or services from aspiring computer controlled entrepreneurs. These are all based on real-life products or inventions, so players must decide whether or not to invest. Their aim is to choose a‘Goldmine’ investment and avoid the‘Flops’ with the overall goal to be the Dragon with the most profit after three rounds of investment.
Dragons’ Den also features a multiplayer mode for up to five players. Each player takes turns to decide the investment while the computer AI randomly chooses the order of the Dragons. Each Dragon will then be prompted to take their turn deciding if they want to invest or not.
