Chertsey, Surrey– 30th November, 2007– Electronic Arts (NASAQ: ERTS) today announced that action-puzzle game, LEGO® Escape for mobile will become available to download from operators across Europe from 1st December 2007. LEGO fans and casual puzzlers will enjoy the game’s added action as they race against the clock to help the LEGO worker escape the factory where he’s trapped.
True to the LEGO brand and offering a twist on the falling block genre, players must build, rather than break, a tower of LEGO bricks as they fall from the sky. Whilst battling with flying robots that move bricks and fire electrical charges, players must ensure their structure is solid enough to prevent it from collapsing. Having to rebuild will waste valuable time.
‘The game’s vibrant design, challenging nature and action element give it universal appeal,’ commented EA Mobile Producer, James Dillon.‘Players will find it completely compelling as they go back to the roots of what LEGO play is all about and build to their heart’s content.’
LEGO Escape offers four differently themed and colourful environments and‘power-ups’ such as jumping boots that can be collected to help the LEGO worker on his quest. For more information visit www.eamobile.com.
