Zed Hammers Its Way onto the iPhone

Spain-based mobile entertainment company Zed, which claims to be the world’s largest in terms of revenue and geographical reach, has unveiled its first two games for the iPhone in the US.

Bubble Boom is a puzzle game that takes advantage of the iPhone’s accelerometer by requiring players to tilt the device to connect and pop bubbles as they work their way through 40 levels of gameplay. The full-featured version is $1.99, but there’s a freebie version with fewer levels.

Carnival Hammer, which does indeed simulate the strength-testing carnival game, also uses the accelerometer. Players test their strength by swinging the iPhone like a hammer – hopefully without tossing it across the room. Testing your virtual strength is a 99-cent download.

You can check out Carnival Hammer in the video below.

Separately, Zed has inked a deal to develop mobile content based on several Universal Pictures films. Look for voice tones, ringbacks and wallpapers based on flicks like Role Models, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Dazed and Confused, The Fast and the Furious, Animal House and classic Brat Pack titles The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles.
