By Alex HudsonToronto's Dine Alone Records has previously given away free music in the form of digital samplers, but here's a much more entertaining way to score some tunes from one of Canada's finest indie labels: with a mobile videogame for iPhone and iPad users.
The description accompanying the game on iTunes describes it like this: "Do you dine alone? Hungry Man does, so he needs your help getting nice and fat! Seriously though -- that gut won't spill over his belt from snacking on health food. Don't even bother with the greens. Only the greasiest grub will do for our pot-bellied friend, so satisfy his hunger and make him burst in gastronomic glory! Perhaps you will even unlock some FREE MP3 downloads for your efforts."
These free MP3 rewards include tunes by acts like City and Colour, Parlovr, Yukon Blonde, Monster Truck and the Coppertone. There are five levels and "endless replay value." Watch a comedic commercial for the game below.
If you're sufficiently interested and own the necessary equipment to play the game, get it for free from iTunes.
