MyTown 2 now available for free on the Apple App Store.

From the press release:

    Booyah, a leading developer of location–based social and mobile games, today announced its latest app, MyTown 2, is now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. MyTown 2 is the sequel to the most popular location–based games of all time, MyTown, played by over 4.5 million people worldwide. MyTown 2 combines compelling city building gameplay with innovative, location-based social features, allowing players to create and customize the city of their dreams filled with their favorite places from the real world.

    “MyTown 2 offers our players a unique, highly-personal take on this incredibly popular genre delivering Booyah’s core vision that ‘where you play matters,’” said Jason Willig, CEO, Booyah. “Gorgeous graphics and sophisticated mechanics combine in a dynamic virtual world that is driven by players’ behaviors in the real world and takes city building to the next level with much more to come.”

    Central to the gameplay of MyTown 2 are businesses, which are brought into the game using geolocation. Businesses can be upgraded and customized, and their “price” in the game is based on their real-world popularity among all MyTown 2 players. Enhancing one of the most popular and ground-breaking features in the original MyTown, players can “check-in” to real places while they’re on the go and receive an array of unique bonuses, boosts and special rewards.

    MyTown 2 takes advantage of features in iOS 5, including integrated Twitter support and iCloud storage.
