iOS game Bout puts you in a photo-taking contest with friends

Bout, an iOS game collaboration with CollegeHumor and indie developer Awkward Hug, launches on the iOS App Store today, opening up a customizable photo-taking contest for your and your iPhone-owning friends.

In Bout, players can either enlist as a judge or photographer; the former group creates challenges (like "Your Best Spider-Man Impression," as seen in the trailer above) which the latter competes to fulfill. After five players accept the challenge and submit their entry, the judge chooses the best picture, awarding its creator with coins which can unlock new challenges and photo categories to choose from.

Check out the video above to see the game in action. Bout is free to download from the App Store, and players are given the option to buy additional coins as in-app purchases.
