Ohana Games releases "Music Challenge" for the Mac and PC, The first game to use the Apple Remote

For Immediate Release

Surfers Paradise, QLD, Australia (August 31st, 2006) -- Ohana Games, www.ohanagames.com, a new casual games company announced the immediate availability of a new and exciting casual game, "Music Challenge". Test your music knowledge with friends & family in an exciting game show called "Music Challenge", integrates with Apple's iTunes, plus a funky show host named Gina. "Music Challenge" is also the first game to take advantage of Apple's remote control that now comes as standard on nearly every Macintosh that they sell.

Join Gina on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai. Prepare for her to stretch your knowledge of your own music collection. Answering quickly & correctly earns maximum points. Get all the questions right and double your points! It becomes more taxing in the later rounds as you're given less time, but the points you could earn here make it worthwhile.

Your Music, Your Game; Music Challenge seamlessly integrates with Apple's iTunes to access your music. Also features an option for choosing custom folders which enable Music Challenge to use music from other media players including iPods. Music Challenge is able to automatically pause and resume iTunes if you were listening to music before playing Music Challenge.

Play With Your Friends; Challenge your friends to see who knows the most about music, up to 4 people can play against each other, let the game decide who is king of the music.

Album Art; Our favorite question is the album art question, where you have to answer by selecting the correct album art. We recommend using Album Cover Finder from http://www.albumcoverfinder.com/ to get Album artwork.

The First Game to Use the Apple Remote; Which makes it a perfect game for parties. Next time you have a party, hook the computer up to the TV & sound system, then party with Gina.

Music Challenge was created using Real Software's REALBasic ( http://www.realbasic.com/), this has enabled Ohana Games to create their games for both the Macintosh and Windows software platforms. It also uses Audio Meta Data Suite to read the meta data direct from MP3s and other Audio files, and Apple Remote Interface to interact with the Apple Remote control. Both are available from http://homepage.mac.com/rowlands/realbasic/
