Sydney, July 15, 2014 –Bubble Gum Interactive, the award-winning studio developing family-friendly social and mobile games, today announced the upcoming launch of its casual sports title for mobile “All Stars Tennis”, as part of a collaboration with Screen Australia who are co-funding the project through their Interactive Games Fund.
Slated to launch in the September 2014, All Stars Tennis is a next generation arcade tennis game for mobile, with a mix of fun, action packed gameplay in the spirit of Mario Tennis, innovative controls, character customisation, advanced AI and awesome social player-versus-player features. Marketed as a free-to-play game, All Stars Tennis is being produced for a global audience from teens to adults, with In-App Purchasing required for certain additional extras, costumes, equipment and “unlocks” for tournaments not available with the free download.
“Based on an original IP, All Stars Tennis is a creative blend of sassy, fun characters and arcade tennis action that we believe has global appeal and entertainment value. In comparison to current mobile tennis games it really stands out from the crowd with innovative game play, amazing character customisation and AI, and awesome social PvP features” said Bubble Gum Interactive CEO Phil Mason. “We’re very grateful for Screen Australia support, which has been a real confidence boost for the team given the very competitive round. It’s a real shame the Abbot government has decided to cut Federal funding for Screen Australia’s Interactive Games Fund, which provided grass roots support for a culturally and economically important Australian Industry.” He added.
With character based progression and the ability to compete with other players around the world including via Facebook, All Stars Tennis is looking for a grand slam as a new casual sports game.
All Stars Tennis will be available globally in the App Store and Google Play for iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets. Watch out for it this coming September!
