This Just In… Namco Networks Launches Atlantis Sky Patrol

Mobile puzzler includes more than a hundred levels and hours of game play

SAN JOSE, Calif. - (Jan. 29, 2008) - Namco Networks, the leading publisher and developer of mobile games and entertainment for mass-market casual gamers, today announced the availability of the hit PC game Atlantis Sky Patrol on mobile, the company's first title through its partnership with Big Fish Games. Atlantis Sky Patrol is a unique marble-matching puzzler with hundreds of levels, mini-games and innovative game play mechanics.

In the game, players lead Atlantis Sky Patrol in the fight to destroy Doomsday Devices that have been detected in the skies above Earth. With a double-tiered game mechanic, there are two game objectives to clear each level. The first is to dismantle the machine's stationary control mechanism. The second is to clear the chain of marbles within each level by shooting matching colored marbles.

"With the popularity of mobile puzzlers among consumers across the U.S., we wanted to bring a quality game that introduced new features to this genre, taking the game play to an entirely new level," said Scott Rubin, vice president of sales and marketing, Namco Networks. "The hit PC title Atlantis Sky Patrol was the perfect puzzle game to port to mobile and supports Namco Network's commitment to providing fun, quality games that are suitable for the mobile platform to mass-market consumers."

"Atlantis Sky Patrol is a fantastic game with a strong following. Namco successfully translated the quick and intuitive play onto the mobile platform," said Patrick Wylie, vice president of Big Fish Games Studios. "We are committed to delivering the best game experiences to our customers and our partnership with Namco for the mobile version of Atlantis Sky Patrol continues that tradition of excellence."

In the game, players can set off chain reaction combos to score big points and obtain one of the 12 power-ups in the game, such as releasing the Rainbow Hammer, harnessing the Soul of Atlantis, and unleashing the Oriphculum Bomb to assist in the destruction of the Doomsday Devices. By collecting coins, players can upgrade the ship, enhancing its firing speed and improving shooting accuracy. Mini-games found throughout the game offer additional opportunities for players to obtain coins.

"Atlantis Sky Patrol is a flashy little puzzler. I'm really fond of the theme, because not only does it hit my sweet spot (I love those old serials and the entire art deco look), but it also adds to the overall experience," said Levi Buchanan of IGN Wireless.

Atlantis Sky Patrol is available today on all national carriers. Visit www.NamcoGames.com/AtlantisSkyPatrol for more information.
