ZDF Enterprises releases football app “Little Mainz Men – 111ers”

Cult characters “Little Mainz Men” conquer the iPhone

Mainz, 7th May 2012

They’ve been cult characters for nearly 50 years now: the Little Mainz Men! Anton, Berti, Conni, Det, Edi and Fritzchen have gathered together for the first time in an app for iPhone and iPod touch as “Little Mainz Men – 111ers.”

After Fritzchen proved his talent as a football player last December in a solo app, all six Little Mainz Men have now joined forces to merrily score goals as “Little Mainz Men – 111ers.” After all, what’s better than kicking a ball whenever you like. It’s not only fun on the football field, but  everywhere and anytime – and it’s also good training for the upcoming European Football Championship.

This is how it goes: 111 football levels distributed among 11 theme worlds – goal scored or missed! Three balls are waiting for you. At least one of them must go into the goal, otherwise you can’t move up to the next level. But on the way there, you have to overcome lots of obstacles: building blocks in the kids’ room, beach umbrellas in the front yard, cars driving by, gigantic steamships... Logic and physical skills – and sometimes chance – help the user kick the ball safely into the net. But above all, points must be accumulated, for only with points can you secure a good position in the charts. Users can present their personal point highlights to the Apple Game Center, and post the respective level status on Facebook.

“Little Mainz Men – 111ers” can be obtained immediately for 0,79 € in the Apple App Store. Further information on the app under
