Hands-On Mobile Climbs the Property Ladder with Launch of Monopoly Tycoon 2007

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 22, 2007) - Hands-On Mobile, a leading global publisher of mobile lifestyle, games and personalisation products, announced today the launch of Monopoly Tycoon 2007, the much anticipated sequel to Hands-On Mobile's blockbuster, Monopoly Tycoon, both under license from HPG, the licensing arm of Hasbro.

Monopoly Tycoon 2007, based upon the best-selling Atari PC title, is an economic strategy game about building real estate empires. Much like Hasbro's classic Monopoly board game, the world's most popular game, Monopoly Tycoon 2007 is easy to learn but hard to master and will appeal to both casual gamers and those who enjoy strategy-based games. Monopoly Tycoon 2007 features many significant improvements over its predecessor. New features include:



- Players can now employ managers to help with the day-to-day running
of the properties.

- New graphics bring a living, breathing city to life with bustling
pedestrians and realistic moving traffic.

- In addition to the classic utilities, Monopoly Tycoon 2007 enables
players to take control of other exciting businesses such as grocery
stores, bars and restaurants.

- New Community Chest and Chance cards add the feel of playing the
Monopoly board game.


"We've enjoyed working with Atari in developing Monopoly Tycoon 2007, which represents a real improvement over the previous version," said Jonathan Sacks, CEO, Hands-On Mobile. "We're really excited about this launch and anticipate great success for the game following on from the popularity of Atari's original PC version and, of course, the iconic board game."
