Ooh, ooh, stayin’ alive

In a double salvo of Saturday Night Fever-related retro chic, Paramount Digital Entertainment has made the film available through iTunes, while also releasing an accompanying iPhone application.

First released in 1977, Saturday Night Fever- starred John Travolta as Tony Manero, a troubled Brooklyn youth who diverted attention away from his troubles with his job, parents, community and friends by dancing in the local disco club. Considered to be a huge commercial success, the movie significantly helped to popularize disco music around the world and made Travolta a household name.

Tony Manero made his mark in both the film and in history with his infamous finger-pointed-in-the-air dance maneuver. Now, with the release of Saturday Night Fever-Dance! – it’s all about the tap and slide, with players competing to win the dance contest.

The game offers four levels of difficulty, players appear as one of two seventies-styled studs who must dance to beats from the seventies including hits like YMCA, Car Wash and Love Machine.

The game also offers two bonus features that enable multi-player modes beginning with a special Wifi feature that enables two players to synch-up and have their own dance-off from their individual devices in a tug-of-war-style manner. A hotseat mode that allows up to four players to compete by taking turns and passing the device off to one another. Each player, in sequence, is allowed to choose a character and play to the same song while the game keeps track of each player’s scores.

    This app looks great!! Interesting to see that Google is creating an app for iPhone.. Seems that Google wants to capitalize the wide market of iTunes with their apps as well.
