Fantage Hits the Bullseye with First Foray into Mobile Gaming

FORT LEE, N.J. - Sept. 12, 2011 - Fantage.com( Fantage), a leading virtual world and community for kids ages six to 16 is moving to new platforms with its first mobile offering, Fantage Bullseye, a gaming application for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Based on the popular in-world mini-game of the same name, Fantage Bullseye has accumulated nearly 200,000 downloads to date, is currently ranked the No. 2 free sports game and is among the top 100 free games on the iTunes App Store.

"Our dedicated community has been asking for new ways to experience Fantage, especially while on the go," said David Hwang, CEO, Fantage. "Considering the fact that smartphones are becoming more and more popular with families - reportedly more than one million phones are activated each day - we felt this was a natural extension for the Fantage brand. Based on the success and positive feedback from our fans, weintend to continue with a multi-platform strategy and look forward to continuously delivering new and engaging experiences for our players to enjoy."

In Fantage Bullseye, players are tasked with putting their archery skills to the test as they try to level up in the touch-and-release casual game. As users progress through ten levels, they can utilize three in-game upgrades per level to aid in precision and help them earn more in-world points, called "stars." The Double Star Coupon awards players double stars after the game ends, the Score Bonus Target earns double scores when a target is hit, and the Accuracy Bow allows players to play at half the speed in any given stage to increase their odds of hitting the bullseye. Once players complete all ten levels, they have the option to transfer the earned stars to their existing Fantage.com account for redemption in the online world.

Additionally, players who can't wait to check updates to their Fantage.com profiles can now download Fantage IDFone, available for free within the iTunes App Store. Fantage IDFone allows players to keep track of progress and view their in-game character anywhere, anytime.
