Nokia Celebrates 75 Years Of Pinball With New Screenshots For Mile High Pinball

Espoo, Finland, June 28, 2005 -- Mile High PinballTM, the latest N-Gage title celebrating man's mastery over a silver ball, celebrates 75 years of pinball history with a brand new set of screenshots available at: www.extranet.n-gage.com.

The first pinball machine, "Baffle Ball" was invented by David Gottlieb in 1930. For a penny, early pinball aficionados could shoot seven balls into scoring holes. The game was so popular that it inspired a home version sequel called "Baffle Ball Senior" in 1932.

Live the history and play pinball like never before with the frighteningly addictive Mile High Pinball on the N-Gage platform. Collect points, collectibles, and power-ups as you ascend through 80+ pinball stages. Go up against mini-bosses or challenge a friend as you ascend to never-before-seen boards.

Developed by Bonus.com, Mile High Pinball offers a Beat-My-Challenge feature where players create their own pinball map and upload it to N-Gage Arena for others to beat. Gamers can also upload rankings, trade balls and a slew of strategic power-ups, and even create their own tournaments.

Mile High Pinball is scheduled to be in retail stores in fall 2005.
