Wednesday 20th April 2005/... Leading mobile content provider Infospace (NASDAQ:INSP) announced today the launch of the latest Pub series title developed by its UK-based studio IOMO and Morpheme Wireless, Pub Pinball.
Utilising a superb pinball engine created by Morpheme Wireless, the game follows classic creations such as Pub Darts, Pub Fruity and Pub Pool, which took first place in ELSPA's Official Mobile Games Java Download Chart in January and challenges players to test their skills on a full size, scrolling table using all the features found on most traditional pinball tables including rollovers, jet bumpers and sink holes.
John Chasey, Infospace's Games Development Director and head of the IOMO studio said: "We really enjoyed working on this title with Morpheme, it's been great to have their insight on our popular and well-established Pub series."
"We're incredibly pleased to have worked so closely with IOMO on this new game," said Matt Spall, CEO of Morpheme Wireless. "The Pub range has already demonstrated amazing sales potential and we expect this instalment to continue that success."
Pub Pinball is now available on Orange UK.
