Indie converting interactive TV titles for smartphones and tablets

Waterfront Entertainment has been signed by Sky Games to bring its interactive TV titles to iPhone, iPad and iPod.

The UK indie has launched the first of these games, Beehive Bedlam, on the iOS App Store this week. Based on the TV version previously only available to Sky customers, the mobile version has several new features, including global and friend leaderboards.

An Android version is currently in the works.

Waterfront has been working with Sky Games on its interactive TV offering for several years, having developed other titles such as Jumble Fever, Word Crunch and Beehive Bedlam 2.

"We are incredibly proud of the work that we have done in developing this game for mobile platforms and we hope to build on the existing Beehive Bedlam fanbase as it moves across to this new platform," said CEO Stephen Swan.

Sky Games development manager Rob Darvill added: "Beehive Bedlam is such a great fit for the mobile platform and I'm sure players will love having the game available to play on the go. The game looks great and we hope with its highly addictive nature, we can continue the success it has had on TV and online."
