IN-FUSIO LAUNCHES SMILEY TACTICS

The First Ever Two-Player Community Game For The Mobile

Bordeaux, France, 18 October - IN-FUSIO is pleased to announce the launch of Smiley Tactics - the first ever two-player community game for mobiles. Players choose between competing against an automatically selected random opponent, or challenge a friend from their "buddy list". Developed by IN-FUSIO the game, which features small yellow and round characters, with a variety of expressions and names, called 'Smileys', is available now to download on ExEn-enabled phones.

In this strategy game, players must take it in turns to try and defeat their challenger with the fewest possible moves. Each person chooses and manages their team of ten Smileys (of which four are used - the rest are substitutes) from a selection of 60. The aim of the game is to use tactics and skill to become the best team manager, while attempting to score points by throwing potion at the opponent's goal.

There are seven rounds altogether during which players can use their special moves such as super speed and strength, cream pie throwing, as well as magic powers like invisibility and telekinesis, that is, the ability to use mind over matter in moving objects. Each Smiley has an experience level rating of between one and eight - with a Smiley winning one experience point for every draw or lost game, and two points for each game session won. The level increases every eight points.

IN-FUSIO game portfolio manager Matthieu Saint-Denis commented: "The launch of Smiley Tactics heralds a new era for mobile gamers. Being part of a community means players have the option of inviting a random opponent to compete against, or select a friend from their buddy list. This makes game play even more compelling."
