THE GODFATHER: EMPIRE iPHONE GAME NOW AVAILABLE

LOS ANGELES– March 2, 2011 Oceanside Interactive today announced the availability of The Godfather: Empire on the App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch. Based on Paramount Pictures’ iconic movie franchise, The Godfather: Empire lets players take on the role of a Corleone family member challenged with recruiting new associates, bringing down rival organizations, and building the most powerful organization in 1940’s New York.

“We are thrilled to bring both the gaming community and film buffs a brand-new way to recapture a classic American franchise and pop culture phenomenon that has spanned nearly four decades,” said Mike Betti.“Fans on-the-go will not only have the opportunity to interact with members of the Corleone family but also prove they have what it takes to ascend in the organization by recruiting friends to play along.”

The Godfather: Empire puts mobile gamers in the shoes of a Corleone associate striving to make the family New York’s most powerful force while doing multiple calculated tasks and“favors” along the way. With over 200‘associates’ to choose from—ranging from mafia affiliates to corrupt politicians—players alone will control the Organization’s recruitment and destiny. However, players must choose wisely as each potential member has their own unique ability to contribute to the organization.

Players can take advantage of weekly content updates for added muscle in their pursuit of street dominance. Players can also recruit their real-life friends to join the fray, adding even more strength to their organization while leveling up more rapidly. Gifting options are also available, allowing fans to unlock special jobs and associates.

Oceanside Interactive has licensed The Godfather from Paramount Digital Entertainment.

Rated 12+ by Apple, The Godfather: Empire is free to download from the App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-godfather-empire/id408712295?mt=8.
