HIGHBORN RELEASED FOR THE ANDROID PLATFORM; NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON'S APPSTORE

Award-Winning Turn-Based Strategy Game Expands Availability to Include Dozens of Android-Based Mobile Devices

LAS VEGAS, NV– March 23,?2011?–?Jet Set Games™ today announced that it has expanded the availability of?Highborn™, the critically and?commercially?successful turn-based strategy game, to include mobile devices?running the Android operating system. Previously only available on iOS devices?or Google?Chrome, Highborn is now?available for the Android OS exclusively on?the recently launched Amazon Appstore at? http://www.amazon.com/Jet-Set-Games- Inc-Highborn/dp/B004RA2E9O.

Highborn for Android?features the same witty, wacky strategy gameplay found in the iOS version, and?also takes advantage of the high-resolution graphics?found on the?latest Android-based?mobile devices. Highborn can be played on more than a dozen different Android?devices running the?clair, Froyo or?Gingerbread operating systems,?including?the Google Nexus One, Motorola Droid, Motorola Xoom, HTC EVO, HTC Desire and?the Samsung Galaxy.

“Highborn has been a?great success on iOS devices and we’ve wanted to port the game to other?operating systems for some time now,” said Rade?Stojsavljevic, president?of Jet?Set Games.“The expansion to Google Chrome late last year was the first step,?but releasing Highborn for the Android OS will?make the game available to?millions?of new players. We look forward to watching the community grow, and?continuing to release new content for the?players.”

In Highborn, players are?treated to two strategy games that combine to offer an intelligent, tactical?experience without the frenetic play of a traditional RTS.?Players move?forces?around an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, then dive into 3D?combat to deploy those advantages against an?unsuspecting enemy.??All the fun?and fighting is set against?an irreverent tale, filled with wacky heroes, witty dialogue and wild?assumptions.

Features:

???A Light Touch?– Highborn is a casual mobile strategy game that offers a satisfying?experience for players, no matter if they spend minutes or hours in the?game.

???Time for a New Strategy?– Highborn features a unique blend of strategic?movement and 3D combat that caters to a variety of gameplay styles and offers?a?great?deal of replayability.

???Many Styles of Play?– Players unlock hero characters as they progress?through the game, giving them access to different abilities and play styles,?along?with?different strategies to use against their opponents.?

???Achieve Greatness?– More than 20 single- and multiplayer achievements?to unlock, including judicious use of turns, using units as bait, and making it?through an?entire mission without capturing support structures.
