Da-da, da-da, dadadadada …. It’s JAWS!

25 Jul

Did you know…

  • JAWS broke box office records on its release in 1975, grossing more than $470 million worldwide!
  • The film received universal acclaim and even holds a rare 100% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes
  • Tiny actors were used in a miniature shark cage to give the illusion of massive sharks
  • Spielberg got scared that his crew were going to chuck him in the water at the end of the final scene, so simply didn’t turn up! It has since become a tradition for Spielberg to be absent when the final scene of a film he directs is being filmed

 

 

 

 

Jaws on mobile

Stay out of the water this summer, as Connect2media is bringing the terrifying blockbuster JAWS to a smartphone, feature phone or tablet near you! Roger Davies, Chief Commercial Officer, Connect2Media said about the partnership with Universal:

“JAWS is one of the greatest film franchises ever, not only smashing box office records but making significant waves in the film industry. It is much more than a movie; it is a truly iconic part of popular culture. We expect this game to take a huge bite out of the market when it’s launched.”

 

 

 

 

Get JAWS on your phone’s game store, or buy from the Android market:

Spotlight on… Call of Atlantis

10 Jun

Atlantis is the legendary lost civilisation first mentioned by the famous philosopher Plato as far back at 360BC. Nobody knows the supposed location for sure, with theories ranging from Antarctica toIreland, and Sweden to the Bermuda Triangle! Even today, historians can’t decide whether it was ever real at all, or simply myth.

One thing that we do know for definite about Atlantis however, is that it makes a pretty addictive mobile video game!

Call of Atlantis is a casual puzzle game with a combination of match-three, hidden object and adventure, with of course that fascinating twist of Ancient history.

Originally on PC, the title has clocked up a staggering 10,000,000 downloads, and more than 35,000,000 people play the browser version. To put this into perspective, if you laid that many mobile phones end to end, you’d get halfway round the world!

Now on Mobile!

When the game was brought to iPhone it proved just as popular, hitting the app charts in numerous countries. And this month, the blockbuster title comes to JAVA, BREW and Android, so that you too can play the game on the move!

“An exceptionally polished and professional match-3 port” AppSafari.com

Igor Bukhman, Co-Founder and President of Playrix, who developed the game, said:

“We are very excited to see Call of Atlantis launch on different platforms including Android. From new exciting mini-games designed for touch screen to advanced quality standards as far as game graphics are concerned, Call of Atlantis promises to be a rewarding gaming experience for anyone who decides to give it a try.”

So remember to look out for the game on your phone, and tell us over on Facebook what you think of it!

Spotlight on… Top Trumps

25 May

If you haven’t been ‘trumping’ your opponents since about the age of six, then where have you been? Top Trumps have now racked up a dizzying 50 million packs sold, throughout Europe,USA,Australia and Japan. For those of you that somehow don’t know, in Top Trumps you basically have to choose the best stat from a card, and cross your fingers that have beaten your rival. If you win, you get their card, and you keep going till you’ve won the entire deck.

However, there are three things you might not know about the famous game:

  1. The original Top Trumps were launched in 1977, and covered thrilling topics such as ‘military hardware’ and ‘modes of transport’!
  2. Many of the packs have become sought after collectors’ items, but the rarest is the ‘wedding pack’ distributed by the director of Winning Moves (the maker of the Top Trumps games) to guests at his wedding.
  3. You can get Top Trumps on your mobile! Yes, that’s right, here at Connect2Media we have teamed up with Winning Moves to bring you a series of the classic games, starting with 007 and NBA.

Shaken not Stirred

007 The Best of Bond, the first game to be released in the mobile series, celebrates the longest running film franchise in cinema history. It covers every official Bond movie ever made and includes iconic characters from Sean Connery and Daniel Craig, to Miss Moneypenny and Goldfinger.

Mark Hauser, Commercial & Licensing Manager for Winning Moves, said:

 “Bond is one of our most popular properties and works perfectly as a Top Trumps game. The mobile version is bound to appeal across the board as the Bond franchise is as strong today as it was in 1962 when the first movie hit the big screen”. 

Ballin’

Our newest release is Top Trumps NBA, and features 30 giants from the greatest league in the world, with up-to-date official stats. Great for tuning up your basketball knowledge – for example did you know that Andrea Bargnani from the Toronto Raptors is a massive 7 foot tall? You certainly wouldn’t lose him in a crowd!


Listen to Will Luton and Daniel Twomey from Mobile Pie talking about the development of the game in their ‘developer’s diary’ below:
