Mastertronic makes its debut on the iPhone platform with Aqua Bubble 2 and Treasure of Persia

London, England- Mastertronic are delighted to announce the release of two new titles on the iPhone- Aqua Bubble 2 and Treasure of Persia.

Mastertronic are proud to join forces with Lithuanian developer, Realore to bring two new casual titles to the iPhone. Established in 2002, Realore is one of the leading developers of casual games bringing popular series such as Farm Mania and Jane’s series to the forefront of casual gaming and creating very successful franchises which have become bestsellers on many gaming sites.

Microsoft at Home recently selected Aqua Bubble 2 as one of its five favourite casual games on the internet. And now you can play it on your iPhone! Aqua Bubble 2 takes the classic gameplay of Puzzle Bobble and Bust-a-Move, with the player taking on the role of Aquatic, fighting to save his fellow creatures from the floods as aqua bubbles overflow the kingdom. Can you launch bubbles fast enough? Match 3 colours or the cascade of bubbles will flood you! Stifle the rebellion, restore peace, and see Aquatic's belly dance!

Treasure of Persia is an exciting puzzle game for the whole family! Find yourself in the exotic elegance of a Persian palace and partake in its omnipresent languor while solving tricky Oriental riddles. Line up three or more same-coloured gem chips to make them disappear as you try to clear the game board. But don’t let the sparkle of gems distract you from exercising your wit as perseverance pays off. Those treasure hunters who successfully align pieces will be amply rewarded: their names will be marked in the history of the Treasure of Persia. With three gameplay modes and 20 levels in each mode, hours of endless fun are at your fingertips. Play this scintillating match-3 title by either touching the screen or tilting the iPhone itself!

This is the first time both companies will be working together to bring games to the iPhone platform.

Mastertronic Product Director, Neil McKenna says“The games market has historically been a corner of media world where standardised platforms have played second fiddle to purpose built devices, in both fixed and mobile. That is now starting to change. What is exciting from a games point of view is the ability to take advantage of iPhone features that it wouldn’t have been economically viable to build into a pure play portable gaming device. We are thrilled to be entering into this increasingly competitive market and joining our experience with such an established outfit as Realore. I hope that this will be a long and fruitful relationship.”

Jevgenija Kharchenko, Partner Relations Manager of Realore, says“The iPhone is an extremely popular market among casual game developers. We considered that it was a natural progression to offer our high quality games in combination with this platform. Mastertronic are an established publisher of casual content and we are very pleased to be joining the experience and knowledge of our companies and we look forward to sharing a long and happy working relationship”.

Both games are available to download in English, French German, Italian and Spanish and will retail at£1.19/€1.59/$1.99
