For immediate release: London, 3 July 2006 - Player One, leading global publisher of games and content for mobile phones, is delighted to announce the release of retro classic arcade game Nebulus. Originally published in the late 1980's for classic game platforms including the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64, Nebulus was a roaring success and has been re-versioned for a variety of other games consoles since. Nebulus places the player in charge of a high tech frog called Pogo who is an employee of Destruction Inc. Pogo's job is to make it to the top of the eight illegal towers that were erected from the bottom of the sea high up into the skies and destroy them whilst tackling bizarre obstacles and enemies set to hinder him and throw him back into the depths waiting below. The mobile game version of the game is easy to play but hard to master and features a highly original game play mechanic. With eight extensive levels and a simple yet effective 3D-style game play, Nebulus is perfectly suited to become a major hit as a mobile phone game. Pete Russell, Managing Director, Player One commented: "Nebulus is the ultimate in 'classic platform' games and is sure to appeal to a wide range of mobile users. Bringing Nebulus to mobile further endorses our strategy of creating an exciting variety of games for mobile gamers around the world." Nebulus will be available to download from the Vodafone Live and Orange World wap portals or by simply texting NEBULUS to 87070* from the beginning of July. "Nebulus" is just one of a range of high quality licensed titles set for release this year. Other releases this year include "Rogue Trooper", "Freddie Flintoff All-Round Cricket", "Michael Vaughan Cricket 06/07" and "Jenson Button Grand Prix" and "Frankie Dettori Vodafone Derby". -ends- Notes to editors: *Terms & Conditions Get bill payers permission first.
