Mobile Lemmings Launches in UK
The classic console franchise now available on wireless headsets...
Wireless entertainment publisher iFone has announced that they will be launching a version of Lemmings for wireless devices across all UK networks tomorrow. The classic, addictive gameplay from the game's console franchise has been fully realized in this mobile version, with 28 levels available for consumers to play through on all popular Java-enabled handsets.
Since its introduction in the 1990s, Lemmings still remains a very popular and successful console franchise, having sold well over 10 million copies. The original game managed to break new grounds in gameplay, with the odd yet memorable Lemmings characters mindlessly traveling by the masses into a variety of dangerous situations. iFone promises that this new wireless version will contain the same wonderfully fun and addictive gameplay that fans of Lemmings have come to love.
"The Lemmings franchise has been one of the most successful franchises in the world," said Morgan O'Rahilly, CEO of iFone. "This game translates extremely well to mobile phones and we're extremely pleased to be bringing the ultimate in playability to the consumer. We feel that Lemmings is going to be another chart topper for us."
