Synergenix announces Conflict: Global Storm

Mobile version of hit console franchise due for release this month

Firmly establishing its partnership with videogames publisher Eidos Interactive, Synergenix has announced the imminent release of a mobile-specific version of Conflict: Global Storm.

The latest instalment in the Conflict series saw its console and PC release earlier this month, and is currently holding a favourable position at the top of the all formats game charts. The title is a squad-based, tactical combat game that focuses on an elite rapid response Special Forces unit with missions ranging from sabotage and infiltration to information retrieval across the world.

The mobile version has been specifically developed by 8-Bit Studios, who are building on their expertise after creating the first two mobile games in the series - Conflict: Desert Storm and Conflict: Vietnam. The latest game uses a new graphical engine, which enables players to view the action from an isometric perspective; viewing all the action as it happens and deploying appropriate tactics and strategies to combat events.

A new squad-based control system, multiple vehicles and weapons and a variety of new additional features are promised for the mobile version, which will be available on a range of Java enabled handsets through all mobile network operators, portals and retail channels later this month.

Synergenix CEO Martin Forsling commented: "The Conflict series shows that mobile games can be much more than simple puzzle or parlour games. Each of the titles in this series has given mobile owners a deep and compelling gameplay experience which translates the strategy and action of the console titles into an equally rich mobile gaming experience."

"We're delighted to announce the completion of Conflict: Global Storm and we're looking forward to more players than ever finding out just how much fun mobile gaming can be," he added.

Synergenix, a subsidiary of Kayak Interactive, has a worldwide distribution network which covers more than 60 top-tier carriers and portals in Europe, North America and Asia. The company recently announced the release of another Eidos franchise, bringing the newly released Total Overdose to mobile customers across the world.

8Bit Games has been developing mobile versions of high profile brands since 2003, and was nominated for the 2004 Develop Industry Awards for best mobile studio.
