Giebelstadt, Germany, December 20th 2006.
HandyGames, a leading European developer and publisher of mobile games, presents - on time for Christmas - a special present for all mobile gamers: free access to nearly all current HandyGames-titles!
The close cooperation with the American company Greystripe with its Gamejump-platform makes this new form of distribution possible for mobile applications. The game itself is free for the customer.
He just has to pay his network operator's data rate for the download and the advertisement. The advertising companies in return finance the use of the application.
"While competitors try to generate new target-groups via demo-versions, Try&Buy or discount prices,
HandyGames goes one step further, again. It's about time to boost the mobile gaming market by simply skipping the discussion about pricing and offer our customers the possibility to use mobile entertainment with advertisement for free.", says Udo Bausewein, CFO of HandyGames concerning this strategic move. "The customer has been used to watch movies with advertisement breaks. We adapt this model and plan to thrill the masses of mobile gamers with it. This is a billion dollar market for the games industry and it is underestimated by many."
Gamers who want play games without advertisement, still can get the titles ad-free from network operators, free portals or our shop.
The free games can be ordered from www.handy-games.com.
