Handmark Releases Funkyball Worlds Game Exclusively for iPhone and iPod touch

KANSAS CITY, MO - December 18, 2009 - Handmark, the world-leading creator and distributor of mobile applications and services, today announced the availability of Funkyball Worlds for iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store. Funkyball Worlds is a groovy physics-based platform game in which players guide a realistically-weighted Funkyball across platforms using a combination of accelerometer and multi-touch controls to roll, slide and jump through different worlds.

"Funkyball Worlds is a fun, yet challenging platform game that successfully takes advantage of the unique device functionality and complements our existing catalogue of quality games in the App Store," said Jason Ford, VP of Games for Handmark. "We're pleased to support Gamelion in bringing this great new game to iPhone and iPod touch users."

In Funkyball Worlds players explore three worlds, each with multiple levels and varied challenges, traversing the platforms against the clock. Players must avoid hazards like mines andlasers, and use collectables such as ball launchers to complete each level. Funkyball Worlds also features an ambient music soundtrack created by Poland's DJ Zombie, or allows players to play the music from their iPod in the background.

The Funkyball Worlds App is available for an introductory price of $0.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at http://www.itunes.com/appstore.
