Glu Mobile Inc. (Nasdaq:GLUU), a leading global publisher of mobile games, today announced the launch of the classic Atari arcade hit, Asteroids?, for mobile phones. The original arcade game released by Atari in 1979 is among the most recognized and successful arcade games of all time. 28 years later, the classic retro space shooter has been reinvented specifically for the mobile platform, with all new enhancements including innovative new themes, bonuses and gameplay modes, as well as ?classic mode? which gives gamers the gameplay and graphics true to the original game.

?Asteroids captures the timeless energy and addictive gameplay of the original arcade game, a true reminder of the hours spent at the arcade, but also gives gamers completely new themes, gameplay and graphics that take advantage of today's technology,? said Jill Braff, senior vice president of global publishing, Glu. ?Gamers young and old love retro arcade classics like this one and people will be pleasantly surprised by the game's modern depth and sophistication.?

The new Asteroids is already receiving accolades from gaming industry experts, earning a 4-star rating (out of 5) and an Editor's Award from WGWorld.com. WGWorld.com reviewer Jesse Garcia commented, ?It's the same shooter in every sense of the word with extra stuff added on to make it that much more fun. This is another classic for mobile re-done just right.?

As the newest mobile version of Asteroids, the game encompasses an array of features which modernize the experience yet keep it true to original, old-skool game play.

Features include:

  • Option to play the game in classic mode, a mobile reproduction of the original arcade version; a coup for gaming purists
  • Exciting new gameplay modes, complete with unlockable themes and power-ups
  • Explosive new weapons and enhanced graphics and sounds
  • New features such as the health meter which monitors strength and helps gamers fight longer
  • Simple controls to make reliving the Asteroids experience quick and easy

Asteroids is the latest Glu title launched through its multi-year, worldwide alliance with Atari, Inc. and its affiliates. Glu launched the mobile adaptation of the arcade classic Centipede? in the first quarter of 2007, and Super Breakout?, Atari's classic block breaking arcade game, is scheduled to debut later this year.

Gamers can try Glu's Asteroids and get more information at www.glu.com.
