Join in the legendary Tour de France from your mobile phone

IN-FUSIO extends its collaboration with Amaury Sport Organisation





Bordeaux - June 22, 2006 - International mobile games and entertainment publisher IN-FUSIO renews its exclusive partnership with Amaury Sport Organisation, official organiser of the Tour de France.

The Tour de France game on mobile phones is available in Europe, North America, and Asia for Java, ExEn and EGE platforms.

The mobile game recreates all the excitement and challenges that exemplify the Tour de France. Combining both arcade action and cycling simulation, the game is easy to play and offers hours of entertainment with three different modes, including "Tour de France," "Quick Race," and "Challenges."

Players will be put to the test by the gruelling Tour de France with each of the sprint and mountain stages that make up the 3653 km course. Players will have to choose the best race strategy to secure first place in each of the three official classifications of this Grande Boucle competition:

- Yellow jersey: players must finish first in each of the 21 stages
- Polka dot jersey: players must secure the best times through the mountain stages
- Green jersey: players must accumulate the most points in the sprint stages

Developed by MIG studio, the Tour de France 2006 mobile is the quintessential cycling simulator. In addition to exciting game-play, it also incorporates a great deal of realism by including key elements of the cycling discipline. Players will have to watch their breathing, relay passes, tire damage, and endurance for the sprints and mountain climbs.

"It has been a pleasure working with IN-FUSIO over the last three years as we have entrusted them with this important international license. IN-FUSIO has proven time and again that they are a key partner in delivering a high quality game and ensuring its success through their global distribution network," said Gaël Colloc'h, head of television and new media division of Amaury Sport Organisation.

The Tour de France mobile game will be available to download beginning June 2006 via leading European, North American and Asian operators.
