HOP ON TO TWITTER WITH SUPER TWARIO

Manchester, UK - 20 th October 2010– Head First, the UK based advertising and design agency, is pleased to announce the App Store launch of  Super Twario, its debut iPhone App which allows users to explore and interact with their Twitter accounts  as a retro platform game.

Super Twario is a revolutionary new way of experiencing and navigating Twitter and its multitude of tweets. Users take on the role of Twario, the hippest bunny in town, and are able to explore Twitter as a platform game, with points and achievements awarded for carrying out various Twitter-related activities.  Twario is controlled with a simple tilt of the user’s iOS device, allowing them to see their Twitter feed across horizontal platforms, with taps to jump and swiping to run faster. 

The Super Twario app also features all the essentials a tweeter would need from a Twitter client, with the ability to create tweets, reply to other users and retweet messages made possible through controlling Twario.  Users can read and reply to Tweets with ease by making Twario jump on them or retweet the message by hitting the Twitter user’s image.

For gamers with a competitive streak, Super Twario is fully compatible with the iPhone’s Game Center, with functionality for unlocking achievements and racking up high scores for leaderboards.

Dom Conlon, Director, Head First comments,“The App Store has a countless number of Twitter clients but there’s nothing quite as innovative or fun as Super Twario.” He adds,“We’re hugely excited to see Super Twario launch on the App Store and we hope our blend of application and game makes it a fitting debut for Head First.”
