Two classic films are coming to the really small screen of mobile gaming: [I]Robocop[/I], an all- action shoot-em-up mobile game based on the Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi hit movie; and [I]Platoon[/I], an
atmospheric jungle combat game based on Oliver Stone’s Academy Award?
winner for Best Picture in 1986.
“Film franchises have been among the winning genres in mobile gaming, and with Robocop and Platoon we have two of the most iconic, high-concept titles in mobile gaming today,” said Digital Bridges Senior VP of Publishing and Marketing Paul Maglione. “We are very pleased at the levels of graphics and gameplay that we have been able to bring to these titles on mobile phones, and look forward to high-profile launches in close collaboration with our distribution partners across Europe.”
Both titles, licensed from MGM Interactive, will go live across Europe later this month. They have been developed as downloadable games for mobile phones and will be available from a wide range of distribution channels including mobile network operators, retail, online portals, and, in the UK, the SKY Active interactive television service.
