Official Press Release

Paramount Digital Entertainment today announced the IRON MAN: AERIAL ASSAULT game for the iPhone and iPod touch is available on the Apple App Store. IRON MAN: AERIAL ASSAULT, based on the 2008 Marvel Studios film released by Paramount Pictures and starring one of Marvel’s most iconic Super Heroes, is a high-flying, action-packed game suited to provide hours of entertainment for all players.

The Iron Man game gives players the opportunity to play as Iron Man and engage in aerial combat and challenges that require quick maneuvering and accurate shooting. As players navigate through high altitude battles, they will soar through 12 different levels of airborne combat where menacing enemies will not rest until they have conquered the skies. To aid in the mission, players have access to high-powered weaponry and strategic flying mechanisms that will serve to eliminate those that stand in Iron Man’s path.

Using an upgradeable, high-powered armor developed by Stark Industries, players will hone their skills by using a variety of weapons to battle through wave after wave of enemy units. With the touch of a thumb, players can access, charge and fire an arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons including repulsor blasts, missiles, and the devastating Unibeam.

Developed by doublesix, IRON MAN: AERIAL ASSAULT utilizes the innovative technology in iPhone and iPod touch, like the accelerometer and Multi-Touch users interface to enhance the game play experience while providing new and exciting challenges to conquer throughout.

Iron Man: Aerial Assault is available for $7.99 from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/

Dust off your dancing shoes because disco is going digital. Paramount Digital Entertainment announced today that the 1970s classic film SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER will be available for digital download and as a new rhythm and dance game developed specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch.

First released in 1977, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER starred John Travolta as Tony Manero, a troubled Brooklyn youth who diverted attention away from his troubles with his job, parents, community and friends by dancing in the local disco club. Considered to be a huge commercial success, the movie significantly helped to popularize disco music around the world and made Travolta a household name.

Tony Manero made his mark in both the film and in history with his infamous finger-pointed-in-the-air dance maneuver. Now, with the release of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER: DANCE! – it’s all about the tap and slide. Mastering the tap and slide functionality is the ultimate goal where players can make their mark, win the dance contest and become a disco dynamo – all with the touch of a finger.

Using an advanced touch interface, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER: DANCE! will revolutionize dance as we know it by training a new army of digital disco dancers. With four levels of difficulty, players have the choice to play as one of two seventies-styled studs who will test their tap and slide skills to beats from the seventies including hit songs like YMCA (The Village People), SHAKE YOUR GROOVE THING (Peaches and Herb), CAR WASH (Rose Royce) and LOVE MACHINE (The Miracles).

Nobody likes to dance alone and with SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER: DANCE!, you won’t have to. There are two bonus features that enable multi-player modes beginning with a special Wifi feature that enables two players to synch-up and have their own dance-off from their individual devices in a tug-of-war-style manner. Additionally, there is a hotseat mode that allows up to four players to compete by taking turns and passing the device off to one another. Each player, in sequence, is allowed to chose a character and play to the same song while the game keeps track of each player's scores.

SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER will be available for $2.99 for rental on iTunes and SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER: DANCE! is available now on Apple’s App store for $4.99.
