NewEdge Mobile Releases Sky Bubbles
Top 5 casual PC game goes on
Alawar NewEdge Mobile, a leading
publisher of Java games for mobile phones, announces a worldwide release of Sky
Bubbles, previously available only for PC. Now casual game fans can enjoy one of
the top 5 (2007) games on their mobile devices.
The PC version of the game developed
by Visual Shape Games and published by Alawar Entertainment found great response
among players and was kept at top positions for more than a month. Sky Bubbles
(PC version known as “Sky Bubbles Deluxe”) features vivid graphics, intriguing
storyline and addictive gameplay, which has made it extremely popular among
logical arcade games’ fans all over the world. The mobile version of the game,
developed by New Edge, equals the PC version in brightness and addictivity and
is expected to find even greater response among mobile casual games’ players.
The mobile Sky Bubbles encourage the
player to meet in intellectual fight with the wicked wizard Caralight, who has
taken hold of the dream-world and its inhabitants. A square game field with
disorderly placed multicolored bubbles was chosen for a battleground. The task
isn’t an easy one – to fight the evil one should make a combination of bubbles
of the same color, which will release the souls captured in them by Caralight.
The release of the mobile version
was motivated by the extreme popularity of the PC game, which took its rightful
place among top 5 best-selling casual games in 2007. “Every year casual games
become more and more popular in Russia”, says Olga Znamenskaja, Executive
director at ANEM. “The PC casual games have already got a stable ground in the
market, but gradually casual content gains its positions in mobile market as
well, which provides for the new directions and additional opportunities for the
game industry development. New Edge’s staff made a good job, developing Sky
Bubbles, making the mobile version of this match3 game every bit as good as the
PC version, so we expect it to win at least the same popularity among mobile
casual games’ players”.
