Dundee, Tayside, 31st January 2013.

Binary Pumpkin are pleased to announce that the highly rated Pumpkin Bingo is now available on the Apple App Store.

With over 23,000 downloads on the Google Play Store for Android devices, and over 1,300 ratings averaging 4.4 out of 5, Binary Pumpkin responded to the numerous requests for an Apple version of the game by releasing onto the Apple App Store on Friday 25th January 2013.

Co-Founder of Binary Pumpkin and the sole programmer on Pumpkin Bingo Bruce McNeish reflects, “We are hoping that we get the same response from our Apple customers as we did from our Android customers. A lot of people love the game which can be seen with the extremely high ratings they are giving us.”

Lol Scragg, the other co-founder of the company adds. “We have worked on games for all demographics through our careers, but this is the first I have worked on that has such a strong female following. The Android players are 85% female according to our data and they are very keen to drop us an email and tell us how much they are enjoying the game. It is that sort of feedback that makes you smile every day!”

Available now for all iOS devices as well as Android, Pumpkin Bingo will also be released via the Amazon App Store and versions for Nook, Kindle, Google TV and PlayStation Mobile are also in the works.

The founders of Binary Pumpkin are always available for interview or comment on any digital entertainment issue, and do tend to be quite vocal and outspoken. A full press-pack for Pumpkin Bingo is also available from http://www.binarypumpkin.com/press/
