Discovery Communications and Capcom Mobile Launch Cash Cab Game on App Store

Discovery Communications and Capcom Mobile today announced the availability of the Cash Cab game on the App Store. Based on the hit Discovery Channel game show series, the Cash Cab App for iPhone and iPod Touch features tons of questions, 21 New York City landmarks, the ability to play your own music in-game, and players can now post their favorite scores directly to Facebook. Additionally, question expansion packs are now available from within the App for near limitless replayability.

In the television show Cash Cab, contestants ride in the back seat of a New York City taxicab and are quizzed on general knowledge questions all the way to their destination. As the meter ticks, the questions get harder and the stakes get higher. Miss three questions and the Cash Cab pulls over and ejects the contestants onto the sidewalk, no matter where they are in the city.

The Cash Cab App uses the Emmy Award-winning show's signature concept and challenges players to answer a series of progressively difficult questions before they get to their destination. Extending the TV show experience, gamers can keep coming back for more as questions are pulled from subjects as diverse as History, Pop Culture, Language and Science. The app also features a "Ride with a Friend" feature similar to the "Shout Out" option featured in the show.

The Cash Cab App is available for $4.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod Touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.

Cash Cab, hosted by comic turned cabbie Ben Bailey, first premiered in December of 2005 and airs weekdays on the Discovery Channel. The Emmy Award-winning original series is currently in its fourth season.

The Cash Cab App is part of Discovery's larger portfolio of mobile services, which includes short-form content and long-form episodes of popular titles through distribution partnerships with the majority of mobile carriers including V Cast and PrimeTime2Go; a collection of Smartphone apps including the Discovery Channel App, a top ranked entertainment app; and direct-to-consumer mobile websites for multiple brands including Discovery Channel, TLC, and Animal Planet, available at www.discoverymobile.com.
