Rocket Riot

Rotterdam, The Netherlands– October 26 th 2010– After the success of last year’s Rocket Riot™ on the Xbox 360, the colorful party shooter is now available on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform. The first Windows Phone 7 phones with the new operating system were made available in stores on October 21 st, across a variety of countries in Europe. Rocket Riot is among the first titles to launch.

Rocket Riot is an explosive arcade shooter, which combines the eight-bit era style from the eighties with a modern twist. Armed with a bazooka and a jetpack, you battle against hordes of strange and funny enemies, in a destructible environment. Last year, Rocket Riot won the Dutch Game Award for Best Visual Design for de Xbox 360 and is now the first Windows Phone 7  game, which has been developed in the Netherlands. And that is something Dutch developer Codeglue is proud of.

Peter de Jong, CEO Codeglue:

“When we started on this project, we were a bit skeptical if we could create the same explosive experience as we did on the Xbox 360, due the fact that we were developing for a mobile phone. Fortunately, the contrary was true. We think that the Windows Phone 7-version is every bit as explosive than its older counterpart!”
