Rockpool Games Get Fruity With THQ Wireless While Announcing A Co-Publishing Deal

Manchester, United Kingdom -- 12th April 2006 -- Rockpool Games announces a co-publishing deal with THQ Wireless for the launch of new-puzzler Fruitfall.

Fruitfall is a unique puzzle game concept and is expected to emulate the great success already achieved by other high-profile puzzle games on mobile. The game offers an impressive array of features including 100 unique levels and an intuitive one-button play style ensuring that the game has the same slick style of gameplay on all supported phones. The game is easy to play but difficult to master and utilises a unique rotating map visual style.

"Our partnership with THQ Wireless allows us to maximise the exposure for this great game by utilising their phenomenal distribution network in all major territories", commented Rockpool's Managing Director, Paul Gouge.

"We've been very impressed by Rockpool's calibre as a developer and have seen them grow their status to be a trusted key partner of THQ Wireless," stated James Scalpello, Marketing Director EMEA, THQ Wireless. "We're delighted that they've chosen us as their launch partner and are expecting a great success with this excellent game".

Fruitfall, the mobile game, will be available from this month and will be available for a wide range of phones on all major networks.
