IG Fun Launches Battle Chess

London, July 11, 2007. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

IG Fun LLC, the mobile publishing and development arm of Indiagames Ltd, has announced the UK launch of its exciting new mobile game Battle Chess. Witness the game's explosive graphics on this visually impressive action mobile game, available to purchase from UK operators Vodafone, 3, and Orange.

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a chess guru or are simply keen to learn, then pit your wits against the phone with three levels of play from easy to challenging, or test your skills against a friend. You can even select to play Aslan's army or the evil creatures of the White Witch with a choice of either 2D classic board or 3D for the full effect.

The game's library includes 30,000 different moves, ensuring a variety of games across the 10 skill levels, with every capture gloriously envisioned through mind-blowing animation.

IG Fun is supporting this year's British Chess Championships on Sunday 29th July - Saturday 11th August at Great Yarmouth College, Great Yarmouth. The company is hosting the lead event for the championships - an exciting stunt involving Battle Chess and mobile phones. Details are currently under wraps, look out for more information....

Gulshan David, Key Account Manager Europe, IG Fun, comments: "I am really excited that Battle Chess is our first launch to both the media and our customers in the UK. We are really pleased to be supporting such a reputable chess event. This game is one of a number of UK launches IG Fun will be announcing over the coming months. There are not many chess games available for mobile phones and 'Battle Chess' is just what the customers' looking for."

Sean Malatesta, CEO of IG FUN LLC added, "Battle Chess is one of those classic titles that resonates with both chess players and casual gamers alike."
