3D winter sports for phones.
Hamburg, 10/28/08 – The slopes are calling! FISHLABS, a leading developer and publisher of quality 3D mobile games, has announced the release of its new mobile game, Snowboard Hero™, along with its dizzying speed, awesome tricks, and incredible jumps, for mid-November. 18 tough challenges set in realistic, high-detail, snow-filled landscapes make Snowboard Hero™ the authentic mobile winter sports experience.
Show what you’ve got by competing with the experienced snowboard aces on steep slopes, maneuvering inches away from deadly cliffs, and taking on insane kickers at the funpark. You will have to master breakneck downhill runs in record time, but things aren’t as easy as they seem, and the shortest route will not always be the road to victory. Sweet tricks and wicked jumps are waiting for you on alternative downhill routes, and mastering them will unlock special moves that will make it possible to get some real points - fall, however, and that vaunted victory and medal will go up in smoke.
From simple timed runs to demanding time, point, and goal combinations, this new FISHLABS mobile game is designed to challenge both casual and hardcore gamers. With its innovative all-in-one gameplay, its intuitive controls, and the huge variety of available challenges, Snowboard Hero™ offers an exceptional gaming experience for mobile phones in the extreme sports department.
“The most important thing for us was to create a fast-paced, action-filled mixture of reckless jumps and awesome tricks in a breathtaking winter mountain landscape, and then put it all on a mobile phone,” says Michael Schade, CEO of FISHLABS Entertainment GmbH. “The game's combination of racing, jumps, grinding, and unique high-detail courses makes Snowboard Hero™ a serious hit game contender."
