iFone Hits Number One Spot in ELSPA Download Chart with Lemmings
Manchester, 17th June 2005 - iFone, the leading wireless entertainment publisher, has again taken the coveted number one spot in the ELSPA download charts, this time with its popular mobile phone version of one of the best-selling console games of all time, Lemmings.
The title made it to number one in only its first full month of availability and is a testament to iFone's continuing ability to publish popular, big-brand titles that strike a chord with the casual gaming public. iFone has consistently maintained high-level positions since the inception of the ELSPA download charts in July 2004 with popular titles such as Monopoly and Cluedo.
Morgan O'Rahilly, CEO of iFone, commented, "Once again, iFone has proved its ability to publish big-brand titles that are an instant hit with those members of the public who play mobile games. I'm convinced that Lemmings will continue to prove popular with the UK public and will enjoy the same popularity when it is released in the US later on this year."
Originally selling over 10 million copies since its introduction in the 1990s, Lemmings is one of the world's most successful console games. The memorable Lemmings characters of the game are small, green-haired beings that mindlessly walk en masse into any danger in their path. Optimised for mobile phones with excellent graphics and 28 engaging levels for players to work through, Lemmings is available on all popular Java-enabled handsets and across all major networks.
