Free MINI Game For iPhone, iPod Touch Users

For iPhone and iPod touch users, here’s a new game I’m sure you’ll get addicted to.

The recently launched “MINI Liquid Assets” is a fun, interactive game inspired by and reminiscent of the old encased water jet games that kids loved generations ago. Produced by MINI Financial Services, the new application combines the MINI brand and intuitive controls that maximize the sophisticated features of the iPhone and iPod touch user interface.

Players need to fire streams of water (with bubble sound effects) into their “MINIs” to keep away from obstacles and guide their coins safely to their MINIs. The game is easy to learn with three difficulty settings: “Easy,” “Medium” and “OMG.” How do you earn points? If you shoot more water, you get more “liquid assets.” Cool idea, huh?

The Mini Liquid Assets, which caters especially to MINI drivers and Apple enthusiasts, features the complete model lineup of MINI vehicles, as well as the latest MINI convertible and the MINI E. Another amazing built-in feature is “Find a MINI dealer” that uses Google Maps app. The new iPhone app can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App store.

According to Jim McDowell, Vice President of MINI USA: “We think “MINI Liquid Assets” is going to put a smile on people’s faces-a little like cruising around town with the top down on your new MINI Convertible.”

That makes me want to own a MINI convertible! But why do I have to save for it (and wait for a million years) when I have my iPhone?…
