FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Having sold more than one million copies of the Crazy Frog video game franchise, Mercury Games today announces a deal with mobile content provider Jamba Gmbh to give more Jamster characters their own video game - Jamster Allstars.
The Jamster Allstars must make their way through a series of challenges to discover who has stolen the all musical notes so that they can continue to make ringtones.
The characters have to move through the platform style game with various challenges to collect musical notes and emblems, solving puzzles and beating bosses along the way. Jamster Allstars has 12 levels and is set in three distinct environments - Futuristic, Urban and Medieval.
There are four playable characters - Sweety the chick, Nessie the dragon, Jambo the elephant and No1 from mad dawgz. Each character has its own skills and strengths, for example Nessie can breathe fire and Jambo can jump, creating earth shockwaves when he lands.
Mercury Games, President, Leo Zullo said: "We are pleased to continue our relationship with Jamba, with the release of Jamster Allstars. Jamba characters are some of the most popular in the, ever expanding, mobile media sector. Previous Crazy Frog games have been very successful and Jamster Allstars is the perfect follow up."
Each copy of Jamster Allstars will include a free premium ringtone (in most major territories). Each game will also unlock exclusive Jamster media content.
The game will be known as Jamster Allstars in all English speaking countries and Jamba Allstars in the rest of the world
Jamster Allstars will be available on the Sony PlayStation 2 and PC. The game will be published under the Turtle Games label, a sub-brand of Mercury Games aimed at 5-12 year olds. It is due for release on the 14th September, priced at £14.99 / 19.99.
