This is a zany game that combines elements of time management and castle defense strategies in a way that is refreshingly unique.
A game I’ve been playing a lot lately!” - Justin McElroy
We’ve been getting positive reviews of Hottie Hookups on a few review gaming blogs…
Big Stack Studios have really put some time into the varying types of nerds that try to stop your dates.” - 7 Bit Arcade
…and while most people who’ve actually tried the game appreciate our brand of humour…
A shameless rip on social stereotypes, but it’s complete lack of shame feels incredibly refreshing. Definitely give this one a spin if you’ve got a few minutes to spare, and don’t mind contributing to the downfall of society.” - Popzara
…not everyone appreciated the $2 launch price (since lowered to $1)…
Once you start, you’ll find it very difficult to stop! The only thing that could make this game better is a slightly lower price – but it’s still a great game for the money.
Casual gamers will love Hottie Hookups! Recommended.”
…and some folks just weren’t crazy about us poking fun at the non-hotties…
Alas, the slow-moving furries — who appear to be using rental-store costumes — are only worth 10 points.”
Which is why we were extremely happy to see Joystiq editor Justin McElroy mention Hottie Hookups as a game he “has been playing a lot lately“!!!
We play it a lot too! One of us! One of us!
Want to fit in? Give Hottie Hookups a chance!
(Note the above reference to the movie “Freaks” implies that everyone who plays this game is yet another category of nerd, thus negating to perpetual criticism that this game’s humour is at the expense of geeks and weirdos… Oh? Not funny if we need to explain it? Never mind.)
How much would you pay for Hottie Hookups?
5 dollars? 10 dollars?”
Did you know that Hottie Hookups allows you to play matchmaker in the most exciting club venues in the world? That these venues are packed with an assortment of attractive individuals you need to pair up before the clock runs out?
20 dollars? 50 dollars?”
Did you know that Hottie Hookups pits you against an assortment of nerds, creepy old men, and past-their-due-date cougars contending for space on the dance floor? That the longer you play, the more strategies you’ll need to play cupid?
100 dollars? 200 dollars?”
How about… one dollar! For one dollar, you match wits with more dance floor riff-raff than seen on The Milt Grant Show.
500 dollars? One thousand dollars!?!”
No, you’re not listening. Starting today, Hottie Hookups can now be purchased for a single buck“. That’s a better dance-floor-per-dollar ratio, a better nerd-per-dollar-ratio and better cougar-per-dollar-ratio than you’ll find anywhere on the app store!
Thanks Crazy Mike. Our little company appreciates you showing it off. Check out more of Crazy Mike’s Iphone app reviews.
Hottie Hookups Lite has been added to the App Store!
It has long been the dreams of millions, to play both matchmaker and nightclub bouncer. But not all of us can afford to spend years of our live taking bouncer training.
Sure, buying Hottie Hookups for $1 off App Store was a fast alternative… if you had wads of cash to just throw around!
Well all that changes today, because you can now hook up hotties and bounce nerds off the dance floor… for free!
If you enjoy Hottie Hookups Lite, and one day make it big, we’ll hope you remember that that full-length Hottie Hookups is still available for unbearably wealthy iPhone owners.
