Geometry Wars Mobile makes its way exclusively to Verizon Wireless phones

Add this to the list of reasons why I hate that Sprint is my wireless carrier: Verizon Wireless and Sony BMG Music Entertainment have announced that the mobile version of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, will be available exclusively on Get It Now-capable phones. 

The mobile version of the game (creatively titled Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved Mobile) utilizes four- or eight-way buttons, as well as the keypad for maneuvers. The game will also feature leaderboards and eight brand new gameplay modes: Untouchable, Suvivor, Monster, Trenches, Speed, Multiplier, Feline, and Bomber.

The game can be "rented' monthly for $3.49, or Verizon Wireless customers can outright purchase the game for $6.49. Any Verizon Wireless customers want to take the dive and give us a yay or a nay on the first portable version of the Xbox 360's system seller?

 
SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT Brings the Console Classic to Get It Now

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., and NEW YORK – Verizon Wireless, the leading wireless company with the most reliable wireless voice and data network, and SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT, today announced the exclusive release of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved Mobile on select Verizon Wireless Get It Now®-capable phones. Developed in conjunction with Bizarre Creations, the game is faithful to the console original while taking advantage of the on-the-go nature of mobile phones, making Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved Mobile a highly-addictive small screen masterpiece.

The controls utilize four- or eight-way buttons, as well as the keypad for easy maneuverability, so players can fight off an onslaught of enemies with precision. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved Mobile includes eight brand new gameplay modes, including Untouchable, Survivor, Monster, Trenches, Speed, Multiplier, Feline, and Bomber. Players can see how they stack up against other fans via a leaderboard.

“The controls are intuitive and the visual style is true to the Geometry Wars world,” said Martyn Chudley, managing director of Bizarre Creations. “The game has managed to capture the essence of the original game, whilst being tailor made for the strengths of the mobile platforms and their audience.”

Verizon Wireless Get It Now customers can purchase and download Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved Mobile from the Get Fun & Games shopping aisle in the Get It Now virtual store for $3.49 monthly access or $6.49 for unlimited use purchase. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved Mobile is available on more than 25 popular Get It Now-capable phones from Verizon Wireless, including the enV by LG, MOTOKRZR K1m and Samsung SCH-a950. Download charges for Get It Now applications vary and airtime charges apply when browsing, downloading and using certain applications. Customers need a Get It Now-enabled phone and Verizon Wireless digital service to access the Get It Now virtual store.
