Elgin, Scotland — October 2, 2013 — Publisher Hunted Cow Studios and developer Dapper Hat Games are proud to announce that Mr. Montgomery's Debonair Facial Hair will launch for iOS and Android this November.

This fast-paced 2D action-arcade game challenges players to become the ultimate Moustache Maestro under the barbershop tutelage of legendary stylist Mr. Montgomery.

Players must fend off sharks, swat killer bees, keep circus clowns out of mischief, save the barbershop from disappearing into a black hole, and more.

Mr. Montgomery’s Debonair Facial Hair is a wacky, all-ages game that features six unique customers, 186 crazy moustache styles, 11 devious ruffians, 40 challenging achievements, humorous dialogue, and an innovative combing mechanic. It includes voicework by Kevin Parr ( www.kpvoiceovers.com) and Gwendoline North.
