Arizona-based Mobi Pizza has launched an iOS app that includes a Pizzeria Challenge game and integration with Yelp.
Mobi Pizza is a customizable, interactive and engaging game first launched on the iPad platform.
The new app, now available as a free download at the iTunes store, is compatible with the iPad, as well as the iPhone and iPod Touch. According to Mobi Pizza, it is the only independent app where customers can play a Pizzeria Challenge game, make their "dream pizzas" and look up Yelp listings for local pizza parlors from their iOS device.
In the coming months, Mobi Pizza will also offer users the ability to order pizza directly from their phones via the app.
"Mobi Pizza was created to give pizza lovers an all-in-one app that not only features a fun pizza-making game, but will soon allow users to also order pizzas directly from the app," said Rollin Roos, CEO, Mobi Pizza.
The new "Pizzeria Challenge" game is a 2-D time-management game that puts the player in charge of a pizza parlor for the day, making pizzas and fulfilling orders against a ticking clock. With numerous toppings and sauces to fulfill, players of the "Pizzeria Challenge" have to manage their orders carefully and ensure that they make enough "Mobi Money" at the end of the day to continue their pizza parlor business.
Users can also purchase "Mobi Money" within the app. With full shareability across social media platforms, players can challenge their family and friends to beat their totals.
Mobi Pizza also features Yelp integration so pizza fans can research local pizza restaurants via Yelp's comprehensive database of reviews, listings and directions.
