SEATTLE, June 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GameHouse®, the casual games division of RealNetworks®, Inc. (Nasdaq: RNWK), and Fox Digital Entertainment today announced the release of The A-Team game, available now for purchase on major North American mobile carrier portals. An expanded version of the game with additional exclusive content is also available for iPhone and iPod touch through the iTunes App Store, with an iPad-specific version coming later this month. The action-packed game offers players the chance to join former Special Forces commandos Hannibal, B.A., Face and Murdock on an explosive action prequel to the Twentieth Century Fox film, which debuted in theaters this past weekend.
The A-Team mobile game's 15 levels take the iconic A-Team characters on adventures through deserts, jungles, and mercenary strongholds. Players can mobilize the entire A-Team or use each team member's unique abilities to ambush enemies, attacking them head-on with hand-to-hand combat, automatic weapons, fragmentation grenades and helicopter-launched missiles. Exclusive content for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch features five additional levels of combat plus enhanced special effects, narrated by Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the role of B.A.
The A-Team movie follows the daring exploits of a colorful team of former Special Forces soldiers who were set up for a crime they did not commit. Going "rogue," they utilize their unique talents to try to clear their names and find the true culprit.
"In cooperation with Fox Digital Entertainment, we're expanding our games portfolio with the official mobile game of one of the most entertaining movies of the summer," said John Barbour, president of GameHouse. "With The A-Team game, GameHouse is thrilled to introduce a new mobile entertainment dimension to the millions of A-Team fans worldwide."
