Overtones Based Fun With The Official App

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Heard of The Overtones? It's near impossible to escape them here in the UK with their talented vocal harmonies featuring across the airwaves and TV stations. Now it seems they've spread their influence to the App Store with an official app rather originally titled The Overtones.

Based around their recent hit Gambling Man, the app features six games which all offer an Overtones-themed take on classic favorites with the aim to gain as much virtual cash as possible by placing stakes across each game.

There's Duplet in which players must uncover sections of a photo and try to find matches of The Overtones clothing accessories, Darren's Lucky Slots: a typical slot machine with an Overtones twist, rearranging game Timmy's Tiles, Mike's Treasure Wheel (a mixture of roulette and trivia), Mark's Crazy Maze and Lachie's Royal Derby with its simulated horse race.

Plus fans can enjoy two exclusive new tracks from the band and other content such as video interviews and high quality photos.

Looks like a neat mixture of gaming and fan service to me. Not bad at all for the $1.99 asking price.
