Pick Zits on iPhone

features an innovative use of multi-touch technology

A ridiculous new game for the iPhone just could be enough of a break to make it worth while... Zit Picker. With two fingers and an iPhone or iPod touch, Zit Picker allows players to keep the lovely Veronica's face beautiful and her complexion clean.

In Zit Picker, players must pinch, pop, and pick Veronica's zits before the stress becomes too much and makes her cry! Zit Picker could well be one of the more disgusting apps yet created but it is designed as a light-hearted and humorous exercise in iPhone's multi-touch screen.

Players remove various types of zits using finger gestures like taps and pinches. Zits must be acted upon at the right time - not too early or too late, otherwise they risk becoming scars. Too many scars make Veronica's stress level soar and eventually causes her to cry!

As the game progresses, zits come faster. To further add to the hectic nature of the game, Zit Picker is accompanied by Rimsky-Korsakov's "The Flight of the Bumblebee." A video demo of the app is available on the Zit Picker homepage.

Pricing and Availability: Candywriter is celebrating the release of Zit Picker by offering the first 2,500 downloads for free. Zit Picker is available now on the iTunes App Store. Review copies are available upon request.
