Eidos delivers classic quirky platformer for mobile phones
Redwood City, Calif. — Sep 11, 2007 — Eidos Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, is set to release Crystal Dynamic’s popular game Pandemonium on mobile devices throughout North America. Developed by Ideaworks, the mobile version faithfully recreates the 1997 game, complete with a 3D in-game camera, choice of characters, 18 beautifully designed 3D worlds, and easy to use controls.
Pandemonium stars the hilarious combo of Nikki and Fargus; Nikki is a wizard-in-training with quick reflexes, a quicker wit and a propensity for acrobatics. Fargus is a slightly deranged jester with an even more deranged puppet sidekick called Sid. Other characters complete the fray, each offering different traits for the player to master. Levels will load by episode to allow players a seamless experience with a huge variety of environments, fast-paced gameplay, and challenging boss fights.
“Pandemonium represents a whole new level of gaming experience on mobile phones,” says Dave Clark, vice president of New Business Development at Eidos “The graphics remain strikingly faithful to the original game on console and, as levels load while you play, gamers will enjoy a seamless gaming experience. This is head and shoulders above what most people imagine when they think of games for the phone.”
Originally developed and published by Crystal Dynamics, Pandemonium has already become a successful title on several gaming platforms including the PlayStation(R) game console, SEGA Saturn(tm), PC, and Nokia N-Gage(tm), with combined sales to date of over 1.5 million units.
Pandemonium is currently available for BREW-enabled handsets.
