(June 30, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and TT Games announced today the debut of the highly anticipated “Guinness World Records” game app. Offering endless gameplay that showcases the powerful capabilities of the iPhone and iPod Touch, “Guinness World Records” features 36 insanely fun digital game challenges based on real life world records. These digital competitions are as wacky and bizarre as they are challenging and fun. From crushing watermelons with the “player’s head” and plucking feathers from a “turkey,” to throwing a “washing machine” the farthest, all using the touch screen and motion sensing technologies of the iPhone and iPod Touch, the fun never stops. The “Guinness Worlds Records” app is available now on the App Store for $4.99. “'Guinness World Records' is one of the most unique games on the App Store,” said Gary Edwards, Business Development Director of TT Games. “Players can instantly upload their scores to Gamespy’s online leader board and truly gain bragging rights as they not only compete against friends – but the whole world.” “Guinness World Records” features 36 of the most outrageously challenging games found on the iPhone/iPod Touch. They include: • “Cockroach Eating” – Feeling hungry? “Eat” the most in-game arthropods in the fastest time possible without ever having to touch a real bug. The current real life Guinness World Record of 36 cockroaches eaten in one minute was set by Ken Edwards. Mmm… crunchy! • “Watermelon Crushing” – Feeling destructive? Smash the most watermelons with your head in one minute to beat John Allwood’s actual Guinness World Record of 40, without ever having to pick seeds and bits melon out of your hair. • “Longest Burp” – Make Mom proud as you try to beat Michele Forgione’s current real life Guinness World Record of 1 minute 13 seconds 57 in the iPhone / iPod Touch game. • “Largest Bubblegum Bubble Blown” – Chad Fell’s current real life Guinness World Record bubblegum bubble had a diameter of 20 inches and took more than three pieces of gum to accomplish, but all you need is the game app. Fans can view the games’ global leader board by visiting www.guinnessworldrecordsgame.com.
