Gameloft, a leading publisher and developer of video games for mobile phones, today announced that the wildly popular game LOST is now available at the iTunes Store for fans to purchase and download for play on the fifth generation iPod. LOST is the first television based game to be offered on iTunes and is available immediately for purchase for $4.99.
"We think iPod owners are going to love being able to play LOST on the iPod," said Michel Guillemot, president, Gameloft. "LOST has a huge following and we're excited to have developed this game which is a perfect complement to the show."
"Working together with Gameloft and the Lost producers, we have created a world class mobile game that is considered the gold standard of the industry," said Bruce Gersh, Senior Vice President, Business Development, ABC Entertainment and ABC Studios. "We are thrilled that two partners of ours will deliver the world of Lost in a new way to iTunes fans."
LOST is based on ABC's successful action/adventure series. In time for the season's finale, fans will be able to get their LOST fix via their iPod during the show's hiatus. Gamers play in the role of Jack and help navigate him through the jungle, inside the Hatch and The Black Rock, as he encounters roadblocks such as The Others and the black smoke. Unique for the iPod, the game features enhanced graphics, richer visuals and new audio.
