2007 Press Releases

RealNetworks Takes Award-Winning Casual Game Beyond The Desktop

Best-selling Super Collapse! 3 busts its way onto new gaming platforms, delivering portable fun for the whole family

NEW YORK (PepCom Holiday Spectacular — September 19, 2007  —  Digital entertainment services company RealNetworks®, Inc. today announced the expansion of one of RealArcade's most popular casual game titles, Super Collapse! 3 onto the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, the Nintendo DS™ system and mobile handsets

Super Collapse! 3 for the PSP® system is available starting today in retail stores nationwide, with the Nintendo DS™ version coming later in fall 2007.  Both editions were developed by MumboJumbo in conjunction with RealArcade and feature eleven unique realms, a multiplayer mode, and seven fun and challenging modes of play including Classic, Relapse, Strategy, Puzzle, Slider, Continuous and Countdown.

"Real and MumboJumbo share the same vision for delivering high-quality, addictively-fun casual games to the mass market," says Matt Lichtenwalter, vice president of product development at MumboJumbo. "Making Real's hit game Super Collapse! 3 available on popular handheld gaming devices like the Nintendo DS™ and PSP® system is just another way we're helping expand the fans' enjoyment of the game, allowing them to take it with them on the go."

For the mobile gamer, Real's award-winning Mr.Goodliving studios in Helsinki, Finland has developed Collapse! Quest, which will be available on major US and European wireless carriers beginning in December.  This version was designed with the mobile handset in mind and captures the favorite features of the original in a made-for-mobile format.  The previous mobile version, Collapse!, has been a top seller since its release in 2003.

"On-the-go gaming has become an extremely popular source of entertainment and favored pastime for the whole family" said Matt Turetzky, vice president, non-PC platforms in the Games Division at RealNetworks. "By taking our most popular RealArcade titles to mobile, and working with MumboJumbo to publish our games on the Nintendo DS™ and PSP® systems, we're giving our audience even more ways to access their favorite games. In the coming year, we plan to continue releasing new titles on these popular portable entertainment devices."

Originally developed for play on the PC and Mac by RealNetworks' GameHouse studio, Super Collapse! has been one of the most successful and addictive casual games franchise series and has attracted more than 156 million downloads to date.  In 2006, it received a Zeeby award and was named the Best Casual Game of the Year.  With this expansion to new platforms, Real is delivering this favorite to an even broader audience.

Super Collapse! 3 for the Sony PSP® system carries a suggested retail price of $19.99 and is available at leading retailers throughout North America. The Nintendo DS™ version carries a suggested retail price of $29.99 and will be available later this fall.  Collapse! Quest for mobile will be available on major wireless carriers in the US and Europe beginning in December 2007.
