Turner Broadcasting and ustwo™ launch MeatStroke iPhone app for Adult Swim

London, September 16th 2010: Turner Broadcasting has teamed up with development studio ustwo™, to launch MeatStroke, an iPhone app for its cutting-edge comedy brand Adult Swim.  Based on the animation hit Aqua Teen Hunger Force, MeatStroke, is a tasty new arcade game which features Meatwad from the series.  Set for an EMEA-wide roll out, the game launches September 16th 2010.

The premise of the game is simple– to protect your meat from the heat. Everybody loves the sunshine, but land on the sun and your roast is toast. What every piece of meat needs is a cool refreshing shower or a cuddle from a cloud.  

 

Joe Braman, Adult Swim:“MeatStroke is a delicious treat for Adult Swim fans, packed full of flavour, fantasy and fun.”

 

Players control popular character Meatwad– a mutant wad of meat– as he floats through the sky in search of sustenance. Navigate him away from the sun traps intent on grilling his beefy behind.  Feed him clouds to give him the power to keep on going and revive him to his succulent, former self.  Highly scorched or high score! Help Meatwad choose the right path in MeatStroke.

 

Mills at ustwosays:‘At the end of the day, the angle of the dangle is inversely proportional to the heat of the meat.’

 

MeatStroke is available from Apple's App Store now. Download it here.
