Apple New & Noteworthy Games


NIMBLE STRONG: BARTENDER IN TRAINING is the premier iPhone game for grown-ups and is the culmination of two years of collaboration between some of the top names in bartending, anime/manga, and video games.

> Fast-paced, unrelenting game play that keeps you engaged and entertained through four distinct acts

> Learn how to mix over 70 of the most popular and influential cocktails ever devised - PERFECT for hosting a party, impressing friends/family, or getting your foot in the door at an exciting new career

> 15 hyper stylized, manga-inspired characters animated in a bold and original art style that fuses Japanese manga quirkiness with Eastern Europe edge

> Final Fantasy-esque music created by Michael Huang, award-winning composer of over 70+ commercial video games

> Loaded with the same content you'd learn from a $300+ bartending 101 course(!), in many ways playing Nimble is BETTER than such a course (more hands-on time, higher quality instruction, better replay...)

> Earn a printable and personalized certificate upon completion of the game

> Great replay value with SURVIVAL and RECIPE BOOK modes as well as over 15 unique endings

> A dark and mature three hour long neo-noir storyline with multiple dialogue branches and plot twists

> Co-written and fully audited by Jeffery Lindenmuth, one of the nation's top cocktail journalists

> Created by Adam Ghahramani, one of the most influential voices in the anime and manga world

> Developed by Joshua DeBonis, one of the top game developers in New York City and a game design lecturer at the Parsons School

> Full creator-level support on any and all questions (through our website)


> Starring LEGENDARY anime and video game voice actor Kyle Hebert, voice of Ryu from Street Fighter 4, voice of Kiba from Naruto, Kamina from Gurren Lagaan, and Aizen from Bleach

People With Second Generation iTouches Read

If you have a second generation iTouch and Nimble Strong crashes on it, it's because you haven't restarted your device in a long time. Like PCs, your pods need to be restarted, otherwise their performance begins to lag on games and apps that are more memory heavy.

I had the same problem and restarting instantly helped. I just emailed their support and the response was instant.

Huge FYI :). GREAT game.

Fun little game, but...

...I have trouble with the idea of justifying $4.99 for the full version. I know this is being positioned as an alternative to bartending lessons and it's very clear a lot of work went into this, but in the end it's a game, and I don't see how the economics of the App Store allow for a casual, "subway game" to cost $5. Unless perhaps you're EA who can get away with it.

Really good job, but lower the price to $0.99, or maybe $1.99, and then I'm in for the full version. My guess is so will lots of others.


This game is fun and teaches you how to make a drink what more could you want from a game. Beside getting to drink the drinks?
