JavArt cleans up on mobile phones

George Formby would be so proud…

Italian mobile games developer JavArt has announced it latest mobile release, SqueegeeX, which challenges players to step into the splash-covered shoes of a humble window cleaner, tasked with cleaning three huge buildings under far from normal working conditions.

The game was inspired by classic arcade and home computer titles Qix and Gal's Panic, challenging players to clear a percentage of the screen against the clock and with the added distraction of a host of enemies, obstacles and items thrown in to make life as difficult as possible for the window washer.

Players are challenged to clean the three huge buildings, including a face-off with three end-of-level bosses. But the task is a trap set by Squeegee's ach-enemy, the house painter, and evil critters, angry tenants and more will make this a challenge of both speed and skill, even for veteran gamers.

A comical, quick-fire game reminiscent of the window cleaning mini-game in Sony's EyeToy Play! collection, SqueegeeX features JavArt's trademark bright, colourful visuals, simple controls and rich sound effects. The game will be available for download shortly on a wide range of handsets, adding to JavArt's growing portfolio of titles aimed at a wide mobile gaming audience.

The Sicily-based developer was founded in 2003 with ambitions of becoming a leading global player in the wireless gaming sector, developing its titles in-house for Java, Brew, Symbian, and i-mode platforms to encompass as broad an audience as possible.
