Omega Mobile releases new mobile Flash Lite content for the World War I adventure film, Flyboys. Working in conjunction with the content publisher Finesse Mobile Ltd, Omega Mobile created a portfolio of screensavers, wallpapers and a game with outstanding graphics which complement the great visuals in the film.
Flyboys Shooting Practice is a challenging Flash Lite game that allows players to emulate the gunnery training given to the pilots before being sent on their first combat mission. The screensavers feature different biplanes from the movie. Not repeating just a few set maneuvers, these intelligent screensavers use Flash Lite technology to depict a plane in flight, constantly changing its path and reacting to the battery or network strength of the device. The wallpapers feature static images from the mobile Flash content. To preview the portfolio visit: http://www.omegamobile.com/products/flyboys.php
The content is available for licensing from Finesse Mobile, who will launch the content globally. Finesse is working with networks and aggregators to ensure widespread availability of the Flyboys portfolio.
David Hill, Sales and Marketing Manager of Finesse Mobile said, "We've had a great response to the Flash Lite content developed by Omega Mobile for Flyboys. The visual presentation of the game and screensavers is superb and has proved to be a real hit with fans of the film."
Flyboys is inspired by the true story of the legendary Lafayette Escadrille fighter squadron in World War I. This unit of brave young American's joined the French in fighting Germany before America officially entered the war. Without a parachute and having an average life expectancy of six weeks in the air, these volunteers learned to fly the 12 year old contraption known as the airplane and became America's first aviation heroes.
