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.
