Award winning Miner 2049er classic returns as a mobile game on its 25th anniversary with publisher Magmic Games!

    OTTAWA and VANCOUVER, March 1 /CNW Telbec/ - As the exclusive publisher,
Magmic Games is bringing back this amazing 80s classic to be released first
for mobile gamers to enjoy, and later for next generation platforms and
popular consoles.
    Miner 2049er and Bounty Bob Strikes Back, were huge hits in the US and
Japan in the 80s.  Anyone that was playing video games back then loved and
remembers this great series, and its comeback is perfectly suited for today's
mobile phones.
    "We're extremely excited to be working with creator Bill Hogue, a legend
in the video games industry, to bring these great classics back for old and
new fans to enjoy," says Phil Giroux, VP Business Development.
    Miner 2049er, the first of this series to be released, will have two play
modes; the original "as-is" look-and-feel with all original levels, and
another mode which has embellished graphics and sounds. Same great game play,
same great levels and challenges!
    Due to high interest in the return of this classic game, Magmic has set
up a special page where fans can get a sneak peek and sign-up for pre-release
information and news at
    The mobile version is expected to be available later in 2007 on premiere
wireless carriers first in the US and Japan. The game will be available for
the Brew, Java, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry platforms at launch.
