Edinburgh, UK – October 18th 2013 – Nevistech
today announced that Pet Roulette, a game of Russian Roulette with
hamsters, will be launched on 29th October 2013.
Pet Roulette brings the addictive thrill of Russian
Roulette direct to your mobile… but with pets. Challenge
your friends' scores as you use your supply of normal and
specialised bullets to either kill or save a selection of pets, in
a series of increasingly challenging spins of the barrel.
The faster the barrel spins when you fire, the greater the
potential bonus and prizes you can win. With gold to spend and
bullets to collect you’ll need a steady hand for success.
Pet Roulette features unique bullet effects from normal to
nuclear, blank to bubble, to delight or upset your pet.
“We wanted to create a simple game with an addictive
mechanic and unique graphic style.”, said Anthony Magrath,
founder of Nevistech.
Pet Roulette also includes some slightly surreal
mini-games. All the pets you save end up in the Hamster Wheel,
which can be spun to win more bonus points. Those that are killed
are destined for the Pet Recycler, where they have the chance to
see another day.
Nevistech has no concerns about the controversial use of
hamsters in the game.
“Although Pet Roulette features mainly hamsters, we have
no hesitation in adding other pets if there is sufficient
demand”, added Anthony.
