NAMCO NETWORKS BRINGS TINSELTOWN DREAMS: THE 50’S TO iPHONE AND iPOD TOUCH

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 18, 2010—Namco Networks, a leading publisher and developer of mobile, iPhone and PC games for mass-market casual gamers, today announced the launch of its Match 3 PC hit Tinseltown Dreams: The 50’s for the iPhone and iPod touch. The game is currently available on Apple’s App Store for $2.99.

Hollywood is at the center of Tinseltown Dreams: The 50’s, a Match 3 movie-making game that allows players to create their very own box-office sensation. Assume the director’s role and swap tiles to earn a budget, hire a superior cast and crew, and purchase more props. Developed by Big Blue Bubble, who also worked on Namco’s Garters&Ghouls, the game boasts 35 cinema inspired levels based on Namco’s highly acclaimed original PC version.

“Merging the best Match 3 mechanics with the ability to create your own films using characters, sets and props is unlike anything else on the App Store and provides hours of enjoyment,” stated Jonathan Kromrey, general manager of Apple Games for Namco Networks.

The title features Facebook Connect, which allows fans to share scores and in-game achievements. Apple fans can expect the game to be available on Mac in the near future.
