At some point during your grade school years you may recall a simple game that happily consumed your time during English classes. The teacher would begin by writing a sentence on the chalkboard and then pointing to a student at random. This student, perhaps it was you, would then recover from the shock of being called upon in class and come up with the next portion of the sentence to compliment the preceding teaser of “One day, I stumbled upon a green giraffe…”
Liners, a free new app developed by ZOOTOWN INTERACTIVE has hit the app store; hoping to return us all to our childhood, one poorly structured non-sequitur at a time.
The app is currently only available for iOS devices via the iTunes app store but ZOOTOWN INTERACTIVE plans to develop the app for Android devices in the near future. The app is very simple to use and provides immediate enjoyment to its users.
Once you have downloaded and installed the app, you are ready to either start playing, or to start reading. I began by reading a few stories other users had concocted. One story began like so: “It appears to me that you can only extinguish fires with h2o…”, then a friend chimed in with “…but the jury is still out. In fact my grandpa’s Asian friend…”, “…has a problem with coconut flavored undergarments.”
Now I know by this point you’re already digging out your iPhones and iPads to download and play this amazing game - however, if you’re not quite sure, read on and let me attempt to persuade you with some fantastic reasons to install this app and give it a whirl.
Reason 1: It’s FREE
How can you put a price tag on all the enjoyment you will derive from this game? Thankfully, you won’t have to! Versus putting a price tag on this app, ZOOTOWN INTERACTIVE has instead opted to release the app for free. The only problem with this is the banner ads that run along the bottom of the app, but hey, they have to make money somehow.
Reason 2: Do you need a reason 2?
This app has a lot of amusement to offer, as well as many enjoyable moments with friends. At a price tag of $0.00 dollars, it’s hard to resist the urge to give it a shot. I hope you can derive as much enjoyment as I did with this app, and I close with this: “…the giraffe was wearing a purple…”
