Tong-its, the famous Filipino card game, can now be played in iPhone and Nokia smartphones, thanks to a Pinoy start-up app developer in Cavite.
Tong-its Extreme is the best card game ever created. It will challenge your analytical skills. The game features multiple personalities and different artificial intelligence engines. It allows gamers to play to their heart’s content.
The game was developed by engineers from Automated Solutions Enabler, Inc (ASEI), which started last May 2009. The company offered web-based solutions for schools and companies. ASEI then streamlined to game development for smart phones as the core business after realizing its huge potential. Presently, the company is focused on developing games in the Java (Nokia, SE, Samsung, etc) and Objective C (iPhone/iPad) platforms.
Tongits is the #1 card game in the Philippines. The game was invented somewhere in the Northern Philippines. One rumor tells of a tale of a bunch of loveless and broken-hearted engineering students who would spend most of their free time playing the game in the hope of easing their pain and suffering!
The game is played with 3 players using the standard 52 deck of cards. The objective of the game is to empty your hand of all cards or reduce the total value of your hand.
