Abandon Mobile, a leading mobile entertainment company, today announced the release of ?NBC Sports Real Golf.? Unveiled for the first time at The American Century Championship Celebrity Golf Tournament in July, ?NBC Sports Real Golf? brings the thrill and excitement of golf to mobile users everywhere. The most realistic mobile golf game to date will make its debut in North America on Cingular Wireless and other J2ME carriers.
Just like real golf, ?NBC Sports Real Golf? the mobile game offers hardcore and casual gamers an accessible title that is easy to pick-up, but hard to master. With photorealistic images, a variety of club selections, and the ability to set variable course conditions, such as wet and slow or firm and fast, ?Real Golf? allows you to personalize your experience for more challenging game play. Hit long or short, hook or slice, it?s up to you to manage the course conditions and test your shot making skills! The game features video commentary from NBC Sports announcer Dan Hicks, as well as hidden and unlockable elements such as gophers and birds that appear randomly throughout the game, and a daunting 19th hole, par 8, 1320 yard hole for players who complete a round in par or better.
?We are thrilled to bring our loyal sports and golf fans a challenging golf game that they can take with them wherever they go," said Gary Quinn, NBC Sports' director of business development. "Abandon Mobile has been a key strategic partner for us in bringing NBC Sports branded games to mobile and ?Real Golf? is no exception. We think ?Real Golf? is a title that also resonates well with older males --- a demographic that is far too often ignored when it comes to engaging mobile content.?
?Golfers and gamers will find an exceptionally high-degree of realism with ?NBC Sports Real Golf,? which offers a fully immersive experience that is unlike any other golf title on mobile today,? said Jamie Ottilie, President and COO, Abandon Mobile. ??Real Golf? is unique in that it allows users to customize their experience, unlock hidden elements, and even challenge friends to beat your lowest score!?
Developed and published by Abandon Mobile, which holds the exclusive global license for NBC Sports mobile games, ?Real Golf? is perfectly suited for gaming and sports enthusiasts of all ages. In addition to personalization settings, gamers can take advantage of a ?tell-a-friend? option made available through Cascada Mobile?s TAG referral distribution technology.
