Los Angeles, September 26, 2008 - Mobile game developer and publisher Magmic Games, Inc., and Paramount Digital Entertainment, today announced the mobile game launch of Eagle Eye, based on DreamWorks'
"Eagle Eye," a race-against-time thriller directed by DJ Caruso and executive-produced by Steven Spielberg starring Shia LaBeouf, Michelle Monaghan, Rosario Dawson, Michael Chiklis, Anthony Mackie and Billy Bob Thornton. The game has been designed in parallel with the movie's climactic plot.
"It is unique for a mobile device to play a critical role in the movie's storyline, and we're delighted to work with Paramount Digital Entertainment to extend the Eagle Eye experience into the hands of the movie's fans worldwide," said Nicholas Reichenbach, executive vice president of publishing for Magmic Games.
"Since its inception, Paramount Digital Entertainment has been focused on creating quality, interactive entertainment. The Eagle Eye mobile game is our latest effort to demonstrate that," states Sandi Isaacs, Senior Vice President Interactive, Paramount Digital Entertainment.
"Magmic is a terrific developer and publisher and we are excited to work with them to launch the Eagle Eye mobile game."
In this fast-paced, combination puzzle/action game, players take on the role of the movie's main characters as they attempt to diffuse a terrifying plot. Each character in the game has a unique skill set, which requires players to switch between the characters throughout the game in order to solve various puzzles to defeat the enemy.

In "Eagle Eye," Jerry Shaw (LaBeouf) and Rachel Holloman (Monaghan) are two strangers thrown together by a mysterious phone call from a woman they have never met. Threatening their lives and family, she pushes Jerry and Rachel into a series of increasingly dangerous situations - using the technology of everyday life to track and control their every move. As the situation escalates, these two ordinary people become the country's most wanted fugitives, who must work together to discover what is really happening - and more importantly, why.
