Bucket Dan – The Moustache Man from zemaGamez features explosive arcade action that pays homage to vintage video games like Donkey Kong and Super Mario Bros.
Bucket Dan – The Moustache Man follows the tragic story of two identical twin brothers who have an epic falling out over their preferred facial hair. Stan—the bearded brother—is so traumatized by their feud that he loses his mind and begins to wreak havoc on the city. Dan—he moustache-clad protagonist—vows to stop him using his incredible Moustache Power.
Created by Martin Sitter (founder of online education site macProVideo.com) and Mark Stope (veteran film-industry illustrator), their game design philosophy takes root in the arcades of Vancouver’s legendary Granville Street. Martin and Mark admit to having spent many hours (and many more quarters) there while honing their gaming skills and were inspired by classic upright arcade games from the 1980s.
According to Mark, “Everything about the game is made to feel like an old fashioned arcade game, but is made for modern mobile devices like your iPad or iPhone. It’s not complicated, and is meant for casual gamers. To make the gameplay more fun, we’ve used the accelerometer on your device as the main control-mechanism. You tilt the screen to make Dan run, and touch the screen to jump and slide. It’s easy to play, and highly addictive.”
You can get Bucket Dan – The Moustache Man for free for a limited time on the App Store for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.1 or later.
