SAN FRANCISCO, CA - April 7, 2010 - One of the most popular games to hit iTunes is now available on mobile phones everywhere from Hands-On Mobile, Inc., the world's leading publisher and developer of connected games and applications. From developer Subatomic Studios, Fieldrunners is the addicting tower defense game that has players build towers in strategic patterns to stop waves of increasingly determined enemies and to extend the game as long as possible. A fan favorite with staying power, Fieldrunners has been a top 20 app in iTunes since its release in October 2008. The game is available for download now on all major carriers and app stores in the U.S. and worldwide through distribution with I-play.
"This game is truly addicting as we've seen with the huge fan base its amassed as an App Store favorite, said Lynn Monica, VP&GM of Mobile Games, Hands-On Mobile. "We saw a great opportunity to take this game cross-platform and have worked closely with Subatomic Studios to create the same addictive experience that has captured iPhone users and kept them coming back for more."
Fieldrunners is an easy to learn, difficult to master title which promises endless game-play. Players are bombarded with relentless soldiers, military vehicles and even helicopters. To survive, players must continually upgrade their existing tower units and preserve cash to buy more powerful weapons for an arsenal to blast the Fieldrunners to oblivion. Success depends on outsmarting enemy units and steering them into well defended areas. If the Fieldrunners get past players' strategic defenses, the game is over.
One of the all-time top paid applications, Fieldrunners is the winner of both the "Best Mobile Game" and "Excellence in Art" awards at GDC 2009 and Time Magazine ranked Fieldrunners in its "Top 10 Video Games of 2008." The Fieldrunners official Web site now has more than 3,000 members and 6,000 posts from fans around the world.
