Manchester, United Kingdom - 7th August 2006 -- Rockpool Games has done it again! Rogue Trooper which they developed and are co-publishing with Player One has achieved the maximum ten-out-of-ten review score from Total Mobile Magazine.
This is the fourth maximum review score for Rockpool in recent months, following the Manchester Studio's top score award for WORMS which they developed for THQ Wireless. Prior to that they had achieved ten-out-of-ten scores for Worms Golf and Moto GP both awarded by What Cellphone Magazine.
Rogue Trooper comes straight form the pages of 2000 AD Comic - you play the last remaining genetic infantryman (GI) as you fight your way through six unique enemy infested zones. With personality chips taken from your dead comrades and installed into your equipment, you hack consoles, gather information and blast your way through the Nort army to confront the man who sold out the GI's.
Rockpool's Head of Development, Tim Welch, said, "We're confident in the quality of our games but it's very rewarding to get independent confirmation. To have Rogue Trooper and Worms both with Maximum scores and to have two titles in the top-ten best sellers recently, I can now substantiate my long term claim that we have the best team in the industry".
"This forth ten-out-of-ten has come at a good time for us", added Managing Director, Paul Gouge, "We've recently made if through to the final of the Mobile Entertainment Awards, Best Developer category and I'm confident that this cements our position as the leading independent developer in the country.
