'Toy of the Century,' LEGO Building Bricks, Make Second Appearance in a Mobile Game

SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)-- Nov. 29, 2006 Hands-On Mobile, a leading global publisher and developer of mobile lifestyle, games and personalization products, announced today that LEGO Bricks, a mobile puzzle game featuring the LEGO Classic brand, is now available for mobile phone users in North America.

LEGO Bricks appeals to all mobile phone gamers with its 'pick up and play' action thanks to its intuitive controls.

LEGO is a fantastic addition to our growing portfolio of brands that include Hasbro, World Poker Tour and Marvel."

Based on the iconic brand, LEGO Bricks features:

  • Vibrant environments and levels as well as distinctive animated backgrounds based on the diverse and colorful world of LEGO.
  • Special power-ups that can help or hinder efforts, such as freezing and exploding bricks.
  • Strategy planning with a special preview that shows oncoming bricks.
  • High score table tracks top score.
  • Easy-to-use one-thumb controls.
"LEGO is a marketer's dream, having been named 'Toy of the Century' by Fortune and the British Association of Toy Retailers," said Paul Baldwin, Vice President of Marketing, Hands-On Mobile. "The LEGO brand resonates powerfully with both male and female mobile users and allows us to cast a wide net with our marketing efforts."

Hands-On Mobile is supporting the LEGO branded title with a multi-faceted marketing initiative, including print, online, transit and outdoor advertising campaigns. The company is also implementing co-marketing programs with the LEGO Group.
