Glu and Codemasters get stuck in

A football manager for your pocket...

Boost IT visibility and business value

3GSM Mobile games developer and publisher Glu has done a deal with Codemasters to get its games onto mobile phones.

It is not the first collaboration between the two - last year Glu put Brian Lara cricket game on mobile phones.

Titles will include Colin McRae Rally, TOCA Race Driver and LMA Manager, which will be the first game available in autmun 2007.

Glu uses its own developers to recreate various games - from Monopoly to the rich graphics of games like Gotham Racing.

A spokesman for Glu welcomed the deal and said it was a mistake to believe only certain types of games will work on mobile phones.

"There are two billion phones out there, so of course there's room for everything from sudoku to more immersive, console-type games. As long as it's good quality, and people want to play it again, it can succeed. When people buy a console they're making a decision on the games they want to play but with phones the potential market is all ages and sexes."

Glu is a private company but has filed an S-1 with the SEC as the first step to an initial public offering. ®
