Sheffield UK, June 1st 2009. Distinctive Developments Ltd have been busy working up a sweat to bring you Rugby Nations 09 – the first Rugby game for iPhone and iPod Touch. The popularity of Rugby continues to grow with the 2007 Rugby World Cup attracting a record 2.25 million attendees and combined TV viewing figures of 4.2 billion.
Sadly, Rugby is often under-represented on games systems but with Distinctive’s extensive experience of producing some of the best selling sports games for mobile phones they have created an entertaining game on the World’s greatest mobile device.
Rugby Nations is a fun arcade Rugby Union game that’s easy to play, has innovative controls and has great visuals. Using a mixture of touch-screen and tilt controls you pass, sprint, tackle and kick your way up the pitch – precious inch by precious inch – until you dive over the try line to score. Conversion kicks are controlled by a swipe of the screen to set the power and direction of the kick.
With three of the World’s greatest tournaments to play through and ten of the World’s best teams the game is sure to keep you entertained for many hours.
Distinctive have partnered with Will Carling and RuckU.com, the social networking site for Rugby fans, to help promote the game. Will Carling commented ‘I’m passionate about Rugby and so are millions of other fans around the World so it’s great to be able to help bring this iPhone game to those fans.’
Nigel Little, Distinctive’s Managing Director, said ‘Rugby is an exciting sport that deserves to have it’s place on the Apple App Store. We hope that rugby fans around the world enjoy the game.’
The game is set for release at the start of June to coincide with the British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa at a great price of €3.99 (£2.99)
