Appy Entertainment: Trucks & Skulls Wins Again
As everyone knows, Trucks are good and Skulls are evil. And when they get together…it's smashing. I'd read a comic book called Trucks & Skulls; I'd watch a movie called Trucks & Skulls; and I'd give my kids a bunch of toys called Trucks & Skulls.
What Trucks & Skulls is right now, though, is a game app for the iPhone and the iPad.
It hasn't been out for much longer than a month and already it's racking up the awards, the great reviews and the downloads.
The reason I pimp for this (again!) is that the game comes from Appy Entertainment and its Secret World Headquarters north of San Diego.

Oh, and the company is run by some friends of mine, Chris Ulm and Paul O'Connor, both of whom have cred in both comics (Malibu Comics; Ultraverse) and games (Oddworld; High Moon).
Here's what's up with their latest game: Trucks & Skulls:
Trucks & Skulls debuted as Apple's iPad Game Of The Week.
Shortly thereafter, a version of the game was available for the iPhone and then what happened? It was Apple's iPhone Game Of The Week.
Trucks & Skulls was IGN's iPhone Game Of The Month, who called it "Angry Birds for dudes." You can't get higher praise than that.
If you've been playing Trucks & Skulls, you now have a chance to nominate it in the 2010 Best App Ever Awards. I've already done it and you know you want to! Give these game dudes a happy holiday season.
Appy's games have racked up more than 6 million downloads and the players keep coming back for more. I already know what they're working on for 2011, because I slipped them some pizza and beer, and I predict some happy Appys in the coming year.
