Pocket Legends Unleashes 3D MMO Gaming on Android Phones, Tablets
AUSTIN, Texas – Nov. 18, 2010 – Spacetime Studios has finally unleashed pioneering 3D MMO Pocket Legends (PL) on the Android Market. The much-awaited Android version includes all the features and content of the iOS original in a polished, complete multiplayer experience unlike anything on Android. More than 125,000 accounts were created by Android users since the start of the Beta late last week.
With Pocket Legends, smartphone owners from all over the globe can, for the first time, explore a detailed fantasy world together, in real-time, on the same server whether playing on iPhone or Android. The game also pioneered the use of open worlds, dungeons and story-driven quests in mobile gaming – surpassing, in some cases, the feature set of PC and console MMOs.
“We see this as a significant milestone for Spacetime, Pocket Legends, and the game industry as a whole,” says Gary Gattis, CEO, Spacetime Studios. “Pocket Legends for Android gives MMO fans the opportunity to join iOS players in exploring Alterra, a world filled with quests, townes, dungeons and much, much more. The reception on the Android Marketplace has been overwhelmingly positive.”
Pocket Legends for Android builds on the strengths of the iOS original to add support to the fastest-growing mobile OS in the planet, including full compatibility with phones sporting Android 2.1 and OpenGL ES 1.1-capable GPUs – required for the game’s colorful 3D graphics.
Launched in April 2010, Pocket Legends changed the mobile landscape forever with the first 3D MMO on a mobile platform. Since release, the game has received critical acclaim and generated more than one million downloads.
