June 4th, 2008 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Game Announcements | No Comments »

HandsonHands-On has released Icy Tower. With over 10 million downloads, the original free web based casual game is already a big hit and Hands-On hopes to extend it’s popularity onto the mobile platform.

“Casual games such as Icy Tower transfer perfectly onto mobile devices and we are excited to be bringing this game with its massive cult following to a new audience,” said Greg Robinson, General Manager of Hands-On Mobile EMEA. “We are delighted to partner again with XENDEX to publish this game and look forward to using our global distribution network to make Icy Tower available to the fans of the game around the world.”

In Icy Tower players control Harold the Homeboy as he climbs the mysterious ice tower in a never-ending quest for the highest score. The aim of the game is to build up the highest possible score by ascending the Icy Tower as far as possible. Sharp reflexes are essential to help Harold the Homeboy leap from ledge to ledge on his slippery ascent. Players gather points by beating the clock to the top of each level. However, it is not just how high you get, but how you get there, with rewards given for double and triple jump combos. The faster you move, the higher you jump and the more points you can earn. With a choice of characters, secret levels and two difficulty modes, Icy Tower is a pick up and play game that will keep players entertained for many hours.

“We are thrilled to be working with Hands-On Mobile again to publish Icy Tower,” said Michael Haberl, CEO of XENDEX. “The classic gameplay is challenging, rewarding and fun and we are confident that its status as an Internet phenomenon will transfer to mobile phones.”
