BANG! is a card-based Spaghetti-Western board game from Italian board game publisher dVGiochi which has sold over 600,000 copies worldwide since launch. Now, BANG! The Official Videogame is on the way, courtesy of Italian production company, Palzoun, for iPad, iPhone and PC. In the game, players get to play as one of a number of Western characters, such as Calamity Janet, Bard Cassidy and Jose Delgado. The essence of the game is to be as quick off the draw as possible, as Outlaws tussle with the Sheriff and his Deputies, or end up in the Undertakerâ€™s window.
Palzoun says that it has been working closely with dVGiochi to ensure that the digital versions of the game maintain the originalâ€™s excitement and universal appeal. I would imagine that it would be particularly well-suited to the iPadâ€™s larger screen size, particularly with the Pass Play vs mode.
BANG! will be available for iPad and iPhone in December 2010, hopefully just in time for the party season.
