It's a common pub past-time, but flicking quarters has finally found a home on your iPhone, keeping your fingers, change and tables safe from damage. iQuarters by Incredible Technologies is a simple physics simulator that will suit anyone who likes to play casually or competitively.
Much like Paper Toss, iQuarters uses a simple flick system to determine the power and direction of your shot. Tapping the angle button in the corner allows you to fine tune the average distance of each shot, but you'll still need a good eye and a steady hand to make those trick shots. Each of the twelve levels provides players with plenty of opportunities to rebound their coins, including spinning tables, springboard mobile phones and even a wobbly Hula dancer. You only have 40 coins in total to sink three shots per table, so make them count!
The physical objects on the table are all rendered in realistic 3D with a simple, but clever panoramic background shot giving the illusion of a full 3D world. Up to four players can compete in a single match and replays of the last shot can be replayed to show off to friends, however it'd have been even better if you could save the replays for later.
iQuarters could easily be a new source of boasting for competitive friends, but even as a casual time-waster it's a tonne of fun thanks to the relaxed physics that allow you to attempt wild shots.
DescriptionCorner pubs and frat houses rejoice – the game of quarters has come to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch! From the makers of Golden Tee® Golf, Incredible Technologies iQuarters shines a new light of challenge and skill on the tavern table game we’ve all grown to love. So step away from that beer soaked table, my friends – quarters has gone 2.0...
iQuarters combines realistic physics, strategy and surreal trick shots with the timeless art of flicking change. The goal is simple: flick a virtual quarter into a glass to advance through different levels. Control the shot with your index finger or thumb to send that silvery-pixeled Washington flying through the air.
In Classic Mode, players are given 40 quarters to navigate through 12 challenging scenes, sinking three quarters per round to advance. Points are awarded based on difficulty, including fun bonus multipliers for ricochet shots – off the lighter, over the martini glass, nuthin but shot glass…
iQuarters was designed with two play strategies in mind; one for the fun-loving casual gamer and the other for the competition-craving master. So whether you play straight for the glass for easy sinks or aim to maximize points with challenging ricochets, just don’t miss the Rube Goldberg-esque trick shots that are hidden along the way, the shenanigans are worth the effort.
Flicking hasn’t been this fun since your first day on the highway – that’s the iQuarters guarantee! So stop denting those fine tabletops and start flickin’ change in this next-generation skill shot challenge! iQuarters is available now for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for the low cost of $1.99 – and we promise, your screen will stay scratch and dent free.
