(London & Berlin - June 12th 2007): Ojom GmbH, a leading creator and global publisher of mobile games, today announced the launch of Starship Troopers - Roughnecks, a mobile game adaptation of the dazzling science fiction animated series about a war in outer-space between mankind and a race of giant alien insects.
Specifically designed for mobile phones, the Starship Troopers game draws gamers deeper and deeper into the dangerous terrain of an alien world to confront an army of giant and extremely hostile bugs. Plunged into battle as a member of an elite mobile infantry unit your mission objective is quite simple - blast the alien arachnids before they have a chance to get you.
Fans of the cartoon and mobile gamers alike will enjoy the dynamic user interface of Starship Troopers game, using the keypad on your mobile you simply point and shoot. Armed with a supercharged assault rifle, you can pick up fresh ammo and medical supplies as you blast your way through the creepy-crawlies. Just make sure that your fingers are always on the trigger because theses bugs are crafty and will ambush you at every opportunity.
Marc Buße, Channel Manager, of Ojom GmbH, said: "We are delighted to add Starship Troopers to our list of titles; it is an exhilarating arcade style shoot 'em up that we hope will appeal to a cross section of mobile gamers. We feel that it's fast and lots of fun, but it also has an added element of uncertainty because you're never quite sure what could be waiting for you around the next corner."
For seasoned gamers the experience of this game will be like a trip down memory lane because the graphics and game-play are reminiscent of the style and playability of the Amiga or SNES. Mobile users who just want to kill fifteen minutes on the train - and a horde of alien insects - will find the game's simplicity just as appealing.
Starship Troopers will be available from June 2007 on all main Java-enabled handsets and from major mobile operators in a range of European languages.
