Jump Games kicks off first mobile game based on Man U

Close on the heels of the global announcement of their tie-up with Manchester United earlier this year, mobile games developer Jump Games has launched their first mobile game – ‘Manchester United Word It!’ – based on the English football club.

Salil Bhargava, CEO, Jump Games, said, “We are excited about launching this first game on the world’s biggest and most popular football club following our tie-up with them. India has a huge fan base for Manchester United and this trivia-based game allows them to connect with their favourite club. The first in the series, ‘Man U Word It!’, will be followed by more exciting games based on the football club.”

The game is available across all major GSM and CDMA operators in the country. Currently, the game is priced at Rs 50-100 for one-time download and Rs 10 for a pay-per-play session on various operators. Going forward, the game will also be available for Blackberry and smart phones.

The mobile game has five unique modes – Training Ground, Player’s Lounge, Changing Room, Player’s Tunnel and The Pitch – covering different flavours of the club, thus lending the game variety. Players need to identify terms related to Manchester United football club in a grid of alphabets.

It may be recalled that in February 2008 Jump Games had signed an exclusive global deal to design, develop and distribute mobile games with Manchester United. Jump Games will be working on a mixture of mobile games content with the football club, which will reflect the excitement and interest globally in the team, the club and its players. The games developed by Jump Games will be available globally through local network operators.
