Astraware Brings Popular Big Fish Games Title To Mobile Devices
Hidden Expedition: Titanic Now Available For Palm OS and Windows Mobile Smartphones and PDAs
KEELE, England and SEATTLE – September 19, 2007 – Astraware and Big Fish GamesTM, Inc. are excited to announce the availability of the highly acclaimed Hidden Expedition: TitanicTM game for Palm OS and Windows Mobile smartphones and PDAs.
The legendary RMS Titanic, which sank in 1912, still houses a wealth of artifacts and treasures on- board. Hidden Expedition: Titanic offers players the opportunity to explore the wreckage of this once-majestic ship and collect antique artifacts for the Titanic Museum. The partnership between Astraware and Big Fish Games will allow consumers to enjoy Hidden Expedition: Titanic straight from their mobile devices.
“We’re pleased to be working with Big Fish Games to bring some of their great titles to handhelds,” said Astraware CEO, Howard Tomlinson. “A first in the new category of ‘hidden object’ games for handhelds, Hidden Expedition: Titanic is sure to be a hit with mobile device users.”
Players hunt for hidden objects within the wreckage during 14 diving missions, ultimately leading to the final prize: The Crown Jewels. Based on the best-selling PC game, Hidden Expedition: Titanic for handhelds features the same stunning graphics and atmosphere of the original. Players have the choice of using the intuitive five-way control scheme or the stylus to find a variety of artifacts hidden within the sunken ship.
“Astraware has proven time and again to deliver only the highest quality games,” added Paul Handelman, VP of Business Development for Big Fish Games. “We’re proud to lead the introduction of hidden-object games to the handheld market with them. We’re confident that this is only the tip of the iceberg for us, so to speak.”
