Megan Fox, if you are reading this, you should give this one a try. And it's not because I think Megan Fox is a hottie (perse), it's just that she was a huge fan of the previous iPhone game that came from this designer -- Sally's Spa. Dan Kratt and Craig Rushforth previously worked at GamesCafe where they designed and produced Sally's Salon and Sally's Spa before breaking out on their own with BlueUnit Studios.

Hottie Hookups is the first product from that studio and is worth a look if you like time management or chaos management games. While the game is very well executed and delivers a lot of character, I was never sure I was personally sold on the gameplay. However, a free version was recently released so you can give it a spin.

    Is the fact that this game is dissing nerds a sign that there are now more "normals" than nerds with iDevices?

    Wow, they've made a time-management game that manages to stand out from the zillions of other cookie-cutter time-management games ... by being really offensive. The trailer alone shows the attitudes:
    No Fat Chicks
    Geeks Are Unattractive
    Women Over 30 Are Scary Predators
    Older Guys Are Ugly

    From the game title and screenshot I had thought this would be a game about picking up streetwalkers. That would actually have been preferable, I think.

    Hey everyone...
    Let’s all remember this game was created by a Video Game Designer and a Video Game Programmer. Craig and I are massive, massive, video game nerds and we do make fun of ourselves at the end of the game. I have a collection of thousands of games from Panzer Dragoon Saga to imported games like Vib Ribbon, trust me, I’m a nerd through and through and proud of it!

    In many respects, the Hotties in this game are the real joke. It’s the nerds who have character...

    Enjoy

    Loved Sally's Spa, but the theme of this one simply makes me uncomfortable. I dunno why the developer thinks it will have the same appeal.

    loved sallys spa and was amazed how incredably dull this is !

    played it for about 15 minutes to see if anything more / interesting happened - it didnt and so got deleted

    recommendable to no-one

    Sally's Spa was great.

    Hottie Hookups is dull, repetitive, and, if not outright offensive, certainly a strange choice in a genre (time-management games) that has a huge female playerbase. Very disappointing.

    I loved sally's spa and must say this game is very different. but I love it! Yeah, there are stereotypes, but they're funny - if you actually read the description about Rolanda (the fat chick) it says something like "if people were able to get to know her great personality she would do great. Alas, the game is too short." It's cheeky! Also, the gameplay itself is like nothing else I've ever seen on a time management game - and that's good. I'm tired of the same games with just a new theme - this one actually has unique gameplay. And the way the iphone is used is awesome - they use the accelerometer different ways throughout the game. 5 stars for me! k, now I'm going to post this on itunes!
