London, UK– July 15, 2009– Glu Mobile Inc. (Nasdaq: GLUU), a leading global publisher of mobile games, today announced the launch of Townsmen 6– Révolution, the latest in one of the most successful strategy game series available for mobile handsets.
Townsmen 6– Révolution, developed by HandyGames, takes the popular build-up strategy theme of previous Townsmen games to the next level. Players can create villages, gather resources, construct new buildings and upgrade existing ones. The goal is to guide the game’s characters, Townies and Townettes, through the perilous time of the French Révolution, help to overthrow the king, and bring about the bright age of Enlightenment. Vive la Révolution!

"A high quality production meets a powerful international distribution network. This is the reason why we believe Townsmen 6– Révolution will become one of the most successful mobile strategy games of all times," said Christopher Kassulke, CEO of HandyGames, of the co-operation.
