Telcogames launches Stormlord for Symbian phones

Publisher extends retro gaming portfolio

Mobile games publisher Telcogames has announced the launch of Stormlord for Symbian phones - another retro-classic that has been specially created by the company's recently acquired in-house development studio, Magic Productions.

Licensed from Ironstone Partners under licence from Rebellion, Stormlord is a brand new version of the original 1989 Amiga home computer game, which proved so popular that it was quickly converted to all popular home computer formats available at the time.

Players take control of a fearless warrior as he battles to save the fairy race from capture by the evil Queen Badh. Tackling a multitude of platform and puzzle challenges over many levels, Stormlord features a dazzling array of traps, pitfalls and devilish enemies - from Venus fly traps and blood sucking leeches, through to huge dragons, giant eagles and more.

Telcogames content and marketing manager, Niklas Bakos, commented: "We're very pleased with Stormlord and absolutely delighted to be bringing it to market. It's another hugely enjoyable game and one which complements our existing line up of Smartphone games."

"Like all of these titles, we've tried to ensure that fans of the original and new players alike will be able to pick it up and enjoy it," Bakos added. "The combination of platform accuracy and fast-paced combat action is something which is difficult to capture on a mobile phone, but once again, Magic Productions have pulled it off and created a game we're very proud of."

The new title, which Telcogames is making available to mobile network operators, portals and other sales channels worldwide, is the latest in a series of retro classic games specifically recreated for the more advanced Symbian technology platform. The company's in-house development studio, Magic Productions, has previously created Symbian versions of Cannon Fodder, Qwak, Another World and Nebulus, with a growing range of popular retro titles currently scheduled for a 2006 release.
