"Summer's over, but clubbers, party-goers, fun-seekers and fashionistas may still party on the magical island of Ibiza using their mobile phones, since the biggest sensation in mobile games this season is, you guessed, the Ministry of Sound Ibiza Game."
This mobile game is truly original and innovative. Instead of having to kill enemies, the player must try to work the crowds, get free access to the best clubs and after-hours, get invited to the most exclusive parties, make out with the most gorgeous boys and girls and become the "leader" of the island, besides having to accomplish some other "missions".
And the "weapons" to be used are not guns or swords, but charm and sex-appeal, with the help of health and money, that may increase or decrease during the game as a result of the actions that the player decides to take.
Your charm and sex-appeal go up or down depending on your ability to be cool and sexy, by choosing the right conversation and the right tone with the right people at the right time.
Your money, of course, decreases when you pay to get in the clubs, drink something or invite others to drinks. Your health, obviously, decreases when you go non-stop from party to party without any rest or when you are too wasted. You gain your health back by resting in your apartment or by cooling down at a sunset chill-out.
With the right management of all these "weapons", the player gains popularity, gets invited to places and accomplishes different "missions" such as having Fabio go back with his ex, Günther, or getting a photographer for Brian, a not-so-famous fashion model.
The player can choose to be a guy or a girl, and either be straight or gay. Of course, your objectives and the reactions you get from the rest of the characters in the game are totally different in each of those cases. And each time you play the game you get different reactions and interactions.
You will mingle with different characters along the way that will help you or keep you from reaching your goals: Liz, a girl that pays for her holidays by giving out flyers; La Divina, an absolutely fab drag queen; Fabio, an Italian that throws the best pool parties; Alex, that works in the army because it's the one place to find tons of men together; Monica, daughter of famous parents that's running away from paparazzi; Gloria, a gorgeous model looking for more than just one-on-one sex, among other peculiar characters that wander around the island. And of course, and inevitably, you will run into club coppers, club PR's and the most spectacular go-go dancers.
The game takes place in the most popular sceneries in the island: the harbour, the clubs, the after-hours, the chill-outs, the incredible beaches or the fantastic villas with the private pool parties.
The design of characters and sceneries is sleek and stylish and way above average for a mobile game. The language is cool, sexy and provocative. And the music... the best house music by Ministry of Sound.
Definitely, the coolest and wildest game! This casual and easy-to-play game will start a new trend as it is introducing mobile games to the trendiest crowd, those who want to experience all the sights & sounds and all the vibe and glamour of Ibiza in their mobile phone.
The Ministry of Sound Ibiza Game is available through most mobile phone operators in Europe.
The Ministry of Sound Ibiza Game has been created and developed by Kato Studios and it is published worldwide by THQ Wireless.
