Rockpool Developed Worms Gets 10 Out Of 10 From Total Mobile Magazine

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



Manchester, United Kingdom -- 2nd May 2006 -- Rockpool Games is delighted to receive the impressive and rare ten-out-of-ten review score for Worms which the company developed for THQ Wireless.

The review which appears in Total Mobile magazine this month reviews the very latest Worms game from Rockpool which was recently released by THQ Wireless in order to coincide with the launch of Worms 3D on Sony PSP and has recently topped the mobile download charts on many carrier decks.

Although Rockpool developed Worms Golf and Worms Forts for THQ Wireless this release marks the first 'true' Worms game from Rockpool. Clearly Total Mobile Magazine is pleased with the results commenting that the game, "...fixes our two complaints about the old game - lack of weapons and lack of worms. You now get the more regular four per team and pretty much the whole gamut of weaponry at your disposal, which makes for a much more interesting scrap."

They add, "It's not often we consider games to be virtually flawless, but this one earns our highest praise."

Rockpool's Managing Director, Paul Gouge, said, "It a great testament to the quality of the team here in Manchester and it further cements Rockpool's position as one of the very best independent developers in the mobile space".
