HILVERSUM, the Netherlands - Dec. 21, 2009
SPIL GAMES, the worldwide leader in online gaming websites (comScore Media Metrix), is excited to announce the release of its first game for the iPhone and iPod touch: Beauty Resort 2. Now available in the iTunes App Store, this spa-themed time management game allows gamers to help salon-owner Heather build her spa business into a beauty empire.
Millions of players have already enjoyed the online version of Beauty Resort and its sequel, Beauty Resort 2. This hit browser-based series has been played more than 25 million times on SPIL GAMES’ gaming websites worldwide.
"Beauty Resort and Beauty Resort 2 have been such a big success with fans online that we wanted to bring this fun experience to iPhone and iPod touch gamers, too, in our first mobile game release," said Peter Driessen, CEO of SPIL GAMES. "We've included the same challenging time-management experience from the online version of Beauty Resort 2 and have added Facebook leaderboards, drag-and-drop gameplay using the platform’s unique touch screen, as well as new customer characters in five worlds that we're sure players will enjoy.”
In the compact version of the game, Beauty Resort 2 Lite, players experience four levels of one world and try to reach profit targets while managing the resort. Players can also enjoy the drag-and-drop feature of the iPhone or iPod touch’s touch screen as they coordinate their services to meet client demands, and they can post their scores on Facebook. Beauty Resort 2 Lite is now available for FREE in the iTunes App Store: http://itunes.com/apps/beautyresort2lite.
The full mobile version of Beauty Resort 2 offers players eight levels of each of these five worlds to explore for 40 levels of gameplay in total. Players must juggle 10 different types of demanding clients, each with their own unique quirks and personalities, and master managing seven different stations. Higher earners who reach the profit targets before time runs out will advance to the next stage and have the option to share their scores on Facebook for all their friends to see. Beauty Resort 2 is now available for $0.99 in the iTunes App Store: http://itunes.com/apps/beautyresort2.
