"Party Down: Waiter Wobble" iPhone/iPod Touch game, iTunes Storefront

Starz Digital Media has also released the new "Party Down: Waiter Wobble" game. Available in the iTunes App Store, "Party Down: Waiter Wobble" is optimized for play on the iPhone and iPod Touch, and compatible with the iPad. Developed in conjunction with Avatar Labs, the object of the game is to serve drinks for your guests using the iPod motion sensor technology and specifically, keep beverages from falling off of your serving tray.

Fancier drink requests, larger orders, and an increasing propensity by your "Party Down" server to consume/siphon off the drinks, all add up to a challenge and wobbly good time. The "Party Down: Waiter Wobble" game costs $0.99.

The iTunes "Party Down" storefront contains everything for the "Party Down" fan including the "Party Down: Waiter Wobble" game, a free downloadable podcast that includes the season two debut episode, other "Party Down" video materials, and all the season one episodes - one free episode and the rest for EST purchase.

Official "Gravity" trailers and behind the scenes videos are available at www.starz.com/gravity and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/gravity.starz. Follow "Gravity" on Twitter: @gravity_starz
