Springtoys is a leading creator and enabler of mobile entertainment content and technology for developing and distributing compelling high-end wireless games.

Under the terms of the agreement, Springtoys will produce six PalmOS games from some of Infogrames' most popular franchises, including Driver, Centipede, Asteroids, Deer Hunter, Pro Bass Fishing, and Beachhead 2000. The first games are scheduled to be available in the early summer of 2001.

"We are very pleased to be working with Springtoys to develop high-quality, branded entertainment content for the PDA platform," commented Jon Leach, Vice President, Licensing for Infogrames Interactive, Inc. "More than 11 million people currently use PDA devices, making this a logical step to expand both our brand and audience reach, while simultaneously offering a value-added fun gaming experience to PDA consumers," he said.

"Bringing these classic and popular games to Palm devices is a great opportunity," says Janne Turunen, CEO of Springtoys. "By partnering with a world-class publisher like Infogrames, which has a strong presence in the entertainment arena, we will further establish our position among the forerunners of the PDA game developers," Turunen continued.
