The Award-Winning Board- & Strategy-Game ‘Café International’ Unveils Feature Packed Update

Independent developer ‘Application Systems Heidelberg’ is proud to announce the release of a major update to their award-winning iOS® board game, ‘Café International’. Compatible with the Apple iPhone®, Apple iPod touch® and the Apple iPad®, this highly entertaining game is a fun and challenging strategy title based on the legendary board game of the same name, a board game that sold in excess of 1 million units, and ranked up numerous impressive awards including the 1989 board game of the year in Germany! ! ‘Café International’ has already proven its popularity and the fans have responded with hundreds of five star ratings in the German App Store!

The iOS® version of ‘Café International’ uses the officially licensed caricatures from the original board game. You will discover that not all guests are compatible with each other, and it is your objective to keep everyone happy by seating them at the right tables, according to their nationality and gender to score maximum points!

The brand new version 1.2 update now available in the App Store includes a plethora of cool features requested by fans: the game now supports Spanish, French and Japanese (with Chinese and Italian coming soon). The download also includes an UNDO feature, but it can only be used once per game, so be careful and clever about using it! Specifically for the Apple iPad® you can now see the cards from all players at all times, allowing you to plan your strategy. It is still possible to tap the character images and get the original larger display of the cards as well. Furthermore, with the addition of Twitter implementation, you can now tweet your score straight after each game. And finally, when you ask for a clue, the markings of all possible moves become clear and will remain visible until a move is actually made.

‘Application Systems’ always listen carefully to player feedback, and is very interested in communicating directly with players. A feature that players have asked for is Online Multiplayer Support, which is something the developer is currently hard at work implementing.

Fans of the genre will simply love ‘Café International’. Although the rules are straightforward and the game is easy to play, it's guaranteed to challenge even the most strategically gifted minds.

‘Café International’ v1.2 is available for download on the App Store from here:
