FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Paris, France, September 28, 2009.
Globulos Party has been elected "the best mobile platform game of the year" by the Milthon French awards
The 2 other finalists of the "mobile platform" category (that included Sony PSP and Apple iPhone) were Nintendo DS™ retail/full priced titles that have respectively been awarded in the "best music" and "best scenario" categories.
Globulos Party will be released on the Nintendo DSiWare™ before the end of the year by the French, Paris located, indie game developer GlobZ. The game is based on the multi-awarded www.globulos.com web multiplayer game.
Globulos Party will include 20 games: Arena, Football, Croquet, Tic-Tac, Darts, Funky Foot, Bomber, Rally, Volley, Sumo, Pinball, Pétanque, BomberKing, 4-Square, Snooker, Basket, DartsKing, Monster, Rugby and the Nintendo DSiWare™ version exclusive, Ice Hockey.
The games will be playable on 50 different playing fields overall. On each of them the player has to beat 3 different AI levels to finish the game (more than 12 hours without losing once!).
The game features also 3 multiplayer modes: the DS Download Play, the DS Wireless Play and even a "2 player hotseat" mode on the same Nintendo DSi™ system.
"We are very proud to have been chosen by the jury" said the GlobZ team. "We hope it will increase the visibility of the game, which is really key for a Nintendo DSiWare™ title."
"It is a delightful reward for a 3 year indie team effort. A total of 8 people have worked on the project, never more than 3 at a time!".
