The mobile games sector is really starting to reach its full potential and the mobile communications industry as whole is recognising that games are a significant driver for people as they upgrade to new and more sophisticated phones. In the past twelve months IOMO has worked on a number of very high profile titles, such as Colin McRae Rally 2005TM and Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf 2005TM, as well as launching our own range of Pub games, which have done incredibly well all around the world. We're delighted to welcome Jonathan, Marvin, Mark, Chris, Dave & Sabrina to IOMO and we're looking forward to working on many more exciting new games in the near future."
