Espoo, Finland, October 18, 2005, -- Nokia today announced that it has shipped High Seize, the latest game from Red Lynx - creators of the highly successful Pathway to Glory franchise.
Combining beautiful in-game artwork and stunning sun-kissed graphics with simple but engrossing game play, High Seize puts you at the helm as you cruise the Caribbean in a race to save your father from the grasp of a ruthless pirate captain.
With classic strategy game play, gamers sail from island to island to do turn-based battle with pirates on land and sea. Thanks to the huge variety of units, resources and terrains they can expect an almost endless combination of offensive and defensive strategies.
Take on up to three friends using Hot Seat or Bluetooth connectivity, or choose to play against others from anywhere in the world via the N-Gage Arena. Using the built-in messaging system you can trade insults with the lily-livered seadogs as you strive to defeat all those that appear on your horizon.
"What makes this game so great is that while you can really immerse yourself in it, it's still accessible enough for anyone to enjoy." says Gregg Sauter, Director, Games Publishing, Nokia. He continued, saying "What we're most excited about is the way that this title ushers in the concept of 'bus stop' gaming: A title you can play for as little or as long as you like to get your gaming fix, and then put things on hold until next time."
