    "We're delighted with the broad appeal of the applications we'll have
available on the Apple App Store at launch," said Michel Guillemot,
president, Gameloft. "Our best-selling titles have been specifically
redeveloped and revamped to leverage the revolutionary features of the
iPhone, and we are confident that iPhone owners will enjoy this new
experience in gaming."



    Each game fully utilizes the accelerometer, touch screen and showcases
enhanced graphics for the large iPhone screen. Game features include:



    - Brain Challenge - More than just a game, it is an entertaining and easy
solution for keeping your brain alert. Use the touch screen features to
select the correct answers. Arrange cubes by gravity in an additional
mini-game exclusive to iPhone.



    - Bubble Bash-Have a blast tossing multi-colored bubbles into the sky to
pop three or more bubbles of the same color. Aim with your finger to fire
into the cluster before it drops and time runs out. In a special control mode
that uses the accelerometer, the bubble launchers stand on a wheeled board
which rolls all along the screen when tilting your iPhone



    - Chess & Backgammon Classics - Chess and Backgammon are two of the
oldest and most popular board games of all time, and both are now available
in a single game. Move the pawns with the tip of your fingers, as you would
do in real life, and shake the iPhone to throw the dice at Backgammon or
choose the portrait or landscape orientation of the chessboard.



    - Diamond Twister - This dazzling game takes new twist on the most
popular genre of gem-matching puzzle. Not only can you slide your finger
directly on the screen to make the gems move, but the game also features an
innovative rotating gameplay. By simply rotating your iPhone, motion-sensor
enables you to actually choose from which side diamonds should fall.



    - Platinum Solitaire- The latest adaptation of the famous card game, set
in the trendiest casino environments! Bonus features include five new games
exclusive to iPhone. Move all your cards with your finger for the easiest
card control and shake your phone to shuffle the cards.



    - Platinum Sudoku- Leave the messy pen and newspaper behind and play one
of 20 million Sudoku and Kakuro puzzles anywhere. Draw numbers on-screen with
your finger and play either in landscape or portrait mode, by simply turning
your iPhone.



    Diamond Twister, Platinum Sudoku, Platinum Solitaire and Bubble Bash will
be available for just GBP3.49 while Brain Challenge and Chess & Backgammon
Classics will be priced at GBP5.99 from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod
