December 1, 2006: Selatra, the global distributor of mobile Java games, announced today the availability of a new FlashLite catalogue, which promises to bring the gaming power of the PC to the mobile. The first two titles in the range are Meteors - a shoot-em-up space game - and Reversi (also known as Othello) the classic, instantly recognisable puzzle game.
Launching the FlashLite catalogue at the MobilShow 2006 in Budapest, Hungary, Sean Cronin, CEO of Selatra stressed the complementary nature of FlashLite super casual with the company's prevailing Java range and said Selatra would be announcing further exclusive titles in early 2007:
"The games are aimed at the non core gamer, simple to play, yet hard to put away," said Cronin. "We believe one thumb and casual gaming will become increasingly popular with consumers who want to take their PC console experience to the mobile and play the flash games they love on the go. We see market growing along non-traditional gamer lines and are extending this genre in our global catalogue."
Selatra is working in conjunction with JR Visuals, a best of breed developer who has delivered some of the most played Flash games on the Internet: "We pride ourselves on being the first to provide mobile versions of these high quality games and working with Selatra will ensure those games reach the widest possible audience," said Jose Rodriguez, Managing Director of JR Visuals. "We look forward to working closely with Selatra on further titles in the range for 2007."
All games are available on GSM and 3G networks. Selatra's full range of games is available on www.selatra.com
