The story of Guilstein has all of the elements of a big-budget sci-fi horror film
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) February 2, 2009
The Caduceus Virus is spreading - to your multi-touch screen! The Japanese Sci-Fi Manga Guilstein is available now on iPhone and iPod Touch from Uclick, the #1 distributor of comics and manga on mobile. Guilstein Volume 1 is presented in six comic book-length apps available for download on the iPhone App Store at $.99 (US) cents each.
Guilstein tells of a dark, dangerous virus striking Japan, causing 15-year-olds to mysteriously transform into horrifying alien beings. When a boy named Iori inexplicably demonstrates the ability to control his transformation, he becomes the lone hope for the teenagers locked away for observation and experimentation at "The Bug Cage," a super-secret research facility where the powers that be hope to use the virus for personal gain.
"The story of Guilstein has all of the elements of a big-budget sci-fi horror film," said Uclick CEO Douglas Edwards. "Death-dodging teenage protagonists, shady government agencies, mutating alien viruses - Guilstein has them all, and it's presented on the iPhone and iPod Touch with the explosive action, gripping drama and heartfelt emotion that is characteristic of great manga."
Uclick has asserted itself as the leader in manga, comic book, graphic novel and comic strip applications on the iPhone and iPod Touch, with more than 75 applications featuring hit titles such as Jeff Smith's Bone, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Grounded, GODLAND and Halo & Sprocket, as well as webcomic collections Pibgorn, Basic Instructions and We the Robots and the manga hits Reality Check! and Dramacon.
The iPhone Uclick apps feature tap-and-swipe, panel-by-panel controls. The large multi-touch screen on the Apple devices enables clear, high-resolution presentation, but users can also utilize the zoom feature to get an even closer look at any panel.
