Namco Networks previews four new games at the DigitalLife

*Namco Networks Offers Sneak Peek of Four Upcoming Mobile Game Titles at
DigitalLife*

SAN JOSE, Calif. (Sept. 27, 2007) – (From DigitalLife, New York, Sept.
27-30, 2007) – Namco Networks, a leading developer and publisher of
mobile games and entertainment, today announced four game previews to
demo at DigitalLife, the ultimate consumer technology, gaming and
entertainment show, held in New York, Sept. 27-30. Along with many of
Namco’s already released mobile games, including such hits as PAC-MAN
and Scene It? Movie Edition, attendees can play demos of Popeye,
Atlantis Sky Patrol, Mr. Do! and Mr. Do!’s Castle.

All four games enhance Namco Network’s portfolio that includes arcade
classics, original titles tied to top-tier brands, and the highest
quality original titles for mobile. At the show, attendees and media can
demo these games prior to their general availability later this year.

“As one of the largest entertainment shows targeting consumers,
DigitalLife is a great place to showcase our upcoming games and get
consumers interested before they are officially launched to the public,”
said Scott Rubin, vice president, sales and marketing, Namco Networks.
“In line with our current game portfolio and strategy, these four titles
provide instant entertainment, new features and overall entertainment on
the go.”

*Atlantis Sky Patrol*

Inspired by the online PC hit game, Atlantis Sky Patrol is an addictive,
action-driven puzzler with more than 100 levels. In the game, players
must knock out and destroy doomsday devices by shooting and matching
chains of colored marbles moving through a track before the chain
reaches a detonation core. The endless stream of marbles won’t cease
until players dismantle the machine’s stationary control mechanism,
cleverly-placed static marbles that continually regenerate the moving
chains that fill the track. The game will be available on select
national carriers in Winter 2007.

*Popeye*

Capturing the spirit of the classic ‘80s arcade hit, Popeye lets players
relive his perennial quest to win back his sweetie, Olive Oyl, while
overcoming the antics of his rival, Bluto. Players help Popeye win her
back by collecting Olive’s love tokens in this mobile-optimized update
to the popular arcade classic. Collect the hearts, musical notes and
cries of “H-E-L-P” that a captured Olive tosses down to collect bonus
points, while avoiding the Sea Hag’s thrown bottles, Bluto’s punches and
other dangers. True to the comic and cartoon series, Popeye is “strong
to the finich” if he eats his spinach, temporarily gaining the strength
to go after Bluto and knock him off the screen. Players can redeem
earned points to view Popeye comic’s right on their mobile phone. Play
Popeye by Namco in arcade or enhanced mode (filled with action-packed
new levels and character cameos). Popeye will be available on select
national carriers in Fall 2007.

*Mr. Do!*

Debuting on mobile phones in Winter 2007, Namco’s update to the arcade
classic challenges players to help Mr. Do! collect cherries for his
pie-tossing clown act. Players must clear the field of cherries while
avoiding wild animals that have escaped from the traveling circus
caravans such as Red Rovers, Munchie Monsters or Alpha Monsters. To
eliminate pesky animals, players can throw Mr. Do!’s rubber nose at them
or drop apples on them. The mobile game comes with both the arcade
classic mode and an enhanced mode which includes fresh graphics and new
power-ups.

*Mr. Do!’s Castle*

Relive classic arcade action in Mr. Do!'s Castle, the popular sequel to
Mr. Do!, also debuting on mobile this Winter. Mr. Do!’s magic clown act
is in an enchanted castle overrun with Unicorns. Players must clear the
Unicorns out before the show. To clear a level, players can also knock
out cherry bricks while pushing back the Unicorns with a mallet. Players
can also wave a magic wand to turn Unicorns into gargoyles, kick ladders
to detour pursuers or use a magician’s hat to teleport for a quick
escape. The game offers an arcade original and an enhanced mode for
fresh graphics and new power-ups.
