High school girl takes on app heavyweights
ORLANDO – A high school
student from Orlando
is betting the house that she can “trump” the big boys at their own game.
Karly Campbell, 18, has reinvented the centuries-old game of blackjack
with new rules, new features and new look that she hopes will appeal to gamers
of all ages. Because the game is the first of its kind and includes a “trump”
card to help players beat the dealer, it has been aptly titled, Trumped: Genesis.™
“Millions of people worldwide play blackjack, but to me it
can get boring after a while,” Karly said. “Genesis
is cool, fun and exciting. It keeps
people interested because it combines a totally new scoring system with all the
cool elements found in other new games.”
is a RPG-type mobile app where players choose their avatars then compete
against the dealer and/or other players. Players increase their skills and
abilities by winning hands, collecting coins, Trump cards, treasures and other rare
items. As players advance, they can use the items to upgrade avatars and
achieve milestones. Players can progress from “Novice” all the way to
“Grandmaster” and unlock levels to play in tournaments, play with friends and
even engage in “boss battles,” where players go head-to-head with the Ultimate
Pit Boss in a fight to the death.
Karly said a patent has been filed for the game with the help
of her father. She said she hopes to begin development within the next 60 days
and continue her career as an entrepreneur.
