You Me At Six Launch ‘Thumb Wars’ iPhone App

January 28, 2010 by  

You Me At Six have immortalised thumb wrestling with a new iPhone app themed around their current album release ‘Hold Me Down.’

The ‘Hold Me Down’ game features unique, intuitive controls that mimic real life thumb wrestling. You can test your skills against a computer opponent, battle your friends on a single iPhone or use Bluetooth networking for the ultimate dual iPhone face-off.

The game is also integrated with the OpenFeint platform so players can accumulate points by completing challenges against the computer. The more points you get, the more chance you have of receiving exclusive You Me At Six prizes. There is also a global leaderboard to check your progress against other players.

They have also been confirmed as one of the acts to play HMV’s music festival ‘Next Big Thing’. The show, which also features Young Guns and This City, takes place at the Relentless Garage on Feb 8th. Earlier in the day the band will also play an acoustic set and signing at HMV Oxford Circus.
