Ahhhh, Top Trumps.
Which British teenage boy can forget the crestfallen look on his pal’s face as he bests the poor sap's Lambo’s brake horsepower with ‘his’ Ferrari F50’s?!
And then prise the sap's supercharged Countach from out of a sweating palm and onto his burgeoning pile.
Magical, I tell thee.
Now imagine that same satisfying – nay, smug – feeling of contentment as you trump your bff over iPhone. Stop imagining. And just read.
Publishers Connect2Media and developers Mobile Pie are teaming up to bring Winning Moves’s classic card game to iOS this summer.
Greg Robinson, Connect2Media’s COO, explains thus:
We are very excited to be extending the reach of the Top Trumps license. Top Trumps is an excellent property for mobile devices and we want to ensure that the quality we have produced for mobile is even more compelling for the iPhone, which is why we are working with highly acclaimed Mobile Pie, to develop the games for the iPhone.
The ‘games’ to which Mr Robinson refers are Top Trumps 007 Best of Bond, Top Trumps Gumball 3000 Supercars, and Top Trumps NBA.
I do hope I’m dealt the LeBron card...
