Vivendi Games Mobile Announces Eragon for Mobile Phones

Vivendi Games Mobile has announced the release of a new mobile game title, Eragon, which is already available on most mobile network operator portals across Europe.

The mobile game launched simultaneously across Europe and the U.S. with the box office release of Eragon, by Twentieth Century Fox Film. Based on 16-year-old Christopher Paolini's fantasy novel, Eragon was one of the best-selling books of 2006, with 2.5 million copies sold to date worldwide. In addition to the mobile game, published by Vivendi Games Mobile, the Sierra publishing unit of Vivendi Games launched Eragon as a cross-platform game, available for consoles (PS2, Xbox 360, PSP, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Game Boy Advance) and PC.

The mobile version of Eragon: The Dragon Rider was developed in the true spirit of the novel and movie, and re-enacts the excitement of the epic dragon-riding adventure. A side-scrolling action game featuring both land and air combat, Eragon enables the player to become the story's hero, riding his dragon Saphira to conquer all states using multi-combos and special dragon moves. The gameplay is both easy and intuitive, thanks to simple controls, and very enjoyable to play.

Key product features:
? The player can choose multiple game paths while following the storyline;
? Intuitive gameplay : the game uses a simple key-set control system that allows multiple combinations depending on the situation;
? Character customization: the player can modify the statistics of his hero to improve his skills given a specific situation. For example, players can choose close combat-oriented skills, or focus on magic spells, or even combine the two. These choices are directly visible in the combat phases.
