Mumbai: Hong Kong-based Artificial Life and Paramount Digital announced the launch of the mobile game Braveheart. It is a real-time strategy (RTS) adventure based on the Paramount Pictures’ motion picture.
This release follows the recent launch of another movie-based mobile game developed and distributed by Paramount Digital Entertainment and Artificial Life, Shooter, which was released in April of this year.
In Braveheart players take on the role of William Wallace, the legendary Scottish hero, who fights for Scotland’s freedom by plotting attacks against their English suppressors. Players must attack and guard six locations from the English in 10 heroic real-time strategic missions. Alongside his fellow freedom fighters, Robert the Bruce, Mornay and Lachlan, Wallace battles the enemies’ infantry, cavalry, foot soldiers and leaders. After conquering a town, players must then guard it against counterattacks.
Characters, missions and locations featured in the game follow the events from the Braveheart movie. For each mission there are three different levels of difficulty in which the number of enemies and adversaries vary. All missions must be completed strategically without losing Wallace or any of his companions.
Braveheart is amongst the first mobile games by Artificial Life to be distributed using the company’s new rollout tool, the MobileBooster. The game is supported by most 3G and 2.5G handsets and is available in many languages for global distribution.
"We put strong emphasis on the game graphics and background story to replicate the exhilarating and technically impressive battle scenes in the film. Every detail in the game stays authentic to the characters as well as the original screenplay. By bringing the heroic character, Wallace back to life in the mobile game format, we hope to provide an invaluable extension to this well-known brand," says Artificial Life chief executive officer Eberhard Schoneburg.
"Paramount Pictures has an extensive library of acclaimed movies which are ideal to translate into mobile games. Our Braveheart mobile game is a natural extension to this timeless and classic motion picture," states Paramount Digital Mobile & Interactive senior vice president Sandi Isaacs. "We are pleased to continue our working relationship with Artificial Life as a partner for this game."
The Braveheart mobile games is now available for purchase and download on Artificial Life’s m-commerce portal, www.botme.com, and will soon be available on-deck and off-deck via telecom operators and resellers worldwide.
