It's no secret that I'm a sucker for a game with a good title. Or, if I can't have a good title, give me a really weird one to grab my attention. Just string together a set of words with (at best) tenuous links between them and my ears will immediately perk up. Like, "Zany Monkey Fart Coliseum," or "Autoerotic Asphyxiation Racers."
Damn. I should get a job titling games.
At any rate, this is Crazy Hot Dogs Tailgate Party, a cell phone game arriving on Verizon phones this week. Its a puzzle game where you cook hot dogs at tailgate parties in a puzzle-game interface. There is, apparently, some kind of story mode, which boggles the mind. But how could you possibly go wrong with that name and a feature such as the, "delicious look and sound of cooking hotdogs on the grill?"
Crazy Hot Dogs Tailgate Party is available on Verizon phones now and will be arriving for a wide range of other platforms in the near future. Hit the jump for a press release.
Los Angeles - Dec. 1, 2008 - Com2uS, a leading provider of mobile entertainment, today announced the launch of Crazy Hotdogs Tailgate Party, a time management-style strategy game for mobile devices. Crazy Hotdogs Tailgate Party captures all the flavor of America's favorite fall competitive sport: tailgating in the parking lot before the big game. Verizon customers can purchase the game by texting HOTDOG to GAME (4263).
