Glu Mobile brings addictive puzzle action to mobiles with the autumn release of AstroPop

Glu brings AstroPop from online gaming experts PopCap Games to mobiles

Glu Mobile, a leading creator and global publisher of mobile entertainment, today announced the release of AstroPopTM, a compelling action puzzle game for mobiles. AstroPop is the latest game to emerge from Glu's collaboration with web gaming specialists PopCap GamesTM, and is a perfect pick up and play game that offers fun and excitement to mobile gamers of all ages.

AstroPop challenges gamers to guide their AstroPilot around the screen, reconfiguring the bricks in an attempt to group four or more of the same colour. In a twist on traditional puzzle games, matching bricks accumulates energy for SUPA weapons which can be unleashed to score big points. AstroPop also features two modes of play, countless levels, and unique bonus rounds, giving gamers endless hours of stellar gameplay.

The game has already won accolades in the mobile press, with Gamespot.com awarding it 8.5 out of 10 and calling it "a game that should appeal to virtually every mobile gamer out there."

Features include:

  • Deep gameplay with three different AstroPilots, each with their own unique SUPA weapon
  • Two modes of play: Classic (players upgrade their SUPA weapons and fight towards new checkpoints) and Survival
  • Devastating SUPA weapons can be unleashed to blast through the falling bricks
  • Special bricks with unique properties to help or hinder progress
  • Awesome Bonus Rounds to test players skills and challenge their wits

AstroPop has been developed in partnership with PopCap Games, makers of some of the most popular online games of all time, including Bejeweled® and InsaniquariumTM. If gamers can tear themselves away from AstroPop for mobile for one minute, they might also like to check out Zuma®, another brilliantly addictive mobile game published by Glu Mobile earlier this autumn.
