Mobile Games Qwak Up With Telcogames

Publisher Brings Classic Platform Title To Symbian Phones

London, September 20th. Mobile games publisher Telcogames today exclusively released QWAK, the classic platform game for Symbian smartphones.

First released in 1993, QWAK was created by Jamie Woodhouse and published by Team 17, the company responsible for the hugely popular Worms series. QWAK puts players in the role of a Qwak, a brave - and acrobatic - duck. The game challenges players to collect fruit, gems and keys from each level, while avoiding an enormous variety of enemies and obstacles. Power ups allow Qwak to jump higher, levitate, gain invulnerability or even throw chocolate eggs at the ghosts and other baddies. To progress to new levels, players must defeat boss levels, which will challenge even the most ninja-like ducks.

Developer Magic Productions has ensured that the Symbian version of QWAK keeps the original title's clear, colourful and fun graphics as well as the game's simple, addictive gameplay.

Telcogames is publishing the game as part of its rapidly growing catalogue of games for Symbian Smartphones. Creating games for Symbian devices allows developers and publishers to access the full power of the Smartphone and create games titles which are much bigger, more detailed and far closer in quality to the type of games which can be found on dedicated handheld games consoles like the Game Boy Advance, DS, PSP, etc.

The company has already brought a number of classic games titles to a new generation through Symbian handsets. In addition to QWAK, Telcogames has published Another World and will be releasing Cannon Fodder, Sensible Soccer, Psycho Pinball and Mega-Lo-Mania in the near future. Telcogames is also publishing a number of new and original titles for Symbian, delivered both via download and through retail packs, where the games are sold on Multimedia Memory Cards (MMC).

"QWAK is incredibly addictive and a huge amount of fun," says Jamie Conyngham, the Chief Executive Officer of Telcogames. "It's the perfect game for mobile phone handsets. You can pick it up and in under a minute be playing the game as though you've had it for weeks. We're delighted to be able to bring such a great title to Symbian smartphone owners. The response we have had so far to the games we're publishing for Symbian has been extraordinary. The titles have found an audience which is delighted to have games that really use the power of their handsets and give them a richer and more exciting gaming experience. We're planning to carry on our support for Symbian games in the future and really take mobile gaming in an exciting new direction."

QWAK has been developed by Magic Productions in France, one of the world's leading developers and publishers of games for Symbian smartphones. In addition to QWAK, Magic Productions is also responsible for the incredibly popular Symbian version of Another World, released by Telcogames earlier this year.

QWAK is available now for all carriers, portals and retail channels.
