AMA Titles Arrive on Barnes & Noble’s Award-Winning NOOK Tablet™ and NOOK Color™

New Orleans - CTIA - May 10, 2012, Advanced Mobile Applications Ltd (AMA) is pleased to announce it is working with Barnes & Noble, the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products, to make AMA’s titles available on the award-winning NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color . Piano Man and Animal Tycoon 2 are the first two AMA games to become available as NOOK Apps in the NOOK Store ( www.nook.com) beginning this week, followed by others in the coming months.  These popular and highly successful video games will allow NOOK customers to reveal their musical talent with Piano Man or become a zoo manager with Animal Tycoon 2.

“AMA is dedicated to offering new gaming experiences to everyone. We’re excited to bring a large portfolio of titles to the NOOK platform, and solidify our position as an innovative game publisher,” said Christian Guillemot, AMA’s CEO.

Piano Man, developed by Yudo , includes forty famous pieces of classical music written by the world's greatest composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and many others. The different levels of play will introduce neophytes to classical music and will also captivate the most experienced players.

Animal Tycoon 2, developed by Softgames, challenges everyone to build the best zoo and satisfy the visitors and the animals to make money. Every detail will increase the zoo attractiveness like the type of animals, decorations or buildings and services offered. 

Piano Man and Animal Tycoon 2, along with thousands of high-quality, popular NOOK Apps, are available on NOOK Tablet, Barnes & Noble’s fastest, lightest tablet, and the highly acclaimed NOOK Color. With the quality collection of NOOK Apps, NOOK customers can choose from a selection of only the best apps available, and enjoy a simple, organized way to discover and purchase apps – right alongside their favorite books, periodicals and more.
