JAMDAT Mobile Knocks Another One Out of the Park with Home Run Derby Mobile Phone Users Invited to Swing for the Fences

JAMDAT Mobile, a leading provider of middleware technologies and services for the creation, distribution and monitoring of mobile entertainment applications, today launched its latest cell phone game, Home Run Derby. The baseball title is available on leading wireless networks, as well as on JAMDAT's WAP site.

"With the All-Star Game right around the corner, we know that fans will appreciate a fun, addictive baseball title that captures the excitement of the duel between pitcher and batter," said Scott Lahman, studios president of JAMDAT Mobile.

Home Run Derby allows players to create and customize their own batters and pitchers, and compete to see if they have more home run power than their opponents. In the three-inning game, it's a sprint to see who can hit the most home runs while also throwing deceptive pitches to limit the opponent's offense.

The batter's statistics are then saved and adjusted each time a game is played, providing fun and relevant feedback about the strength of the player.
