Mforma signs deal with Universal and Paramount for on-line gaming
The mobile developer Mforma has acquired rights from Universal Studios Consumer Products and Paramount Pictures to develop wireless games. Mforma will use Universal's monster movie characters from "Frankenstein," "The Bride of Frankenstein," "The Mummy," "The Wolf Man" and "The Creature from the Black Lagoon", "Dracula" and Paramount's movies like "Days of Thunder", "Beverly Hills Cop", "Star Trek Nemesis," "The Italian Job" and "Top Gun" to deliver them to wireless carriers and their subscribers in the United States.

Mforma's rendition of Universal Studios' Dracula for the wireless medium has yielded one of the highest quality mobile games ever. Called "amazing," and rated nine out of 10 by Wireless Gaming Review, Dracula features a clever array of creative game plays: players have to find parts of Dracula's body and put him back together; players can throw stakes, suck blood to recharge the health meter and turn into a bat to fly over large un-jumpable chasms.

Mforma's "Days of Thunder" wireless game puts players in the role of Cole Trickle. As you take the wheel of your very own 200-plus miles per hour stock car, your driving skills are tested as you race around circuits from Daytona to Phoenix with your strategic decisions about pit stops determining your success. In "Beverly Hills Cop," Axel Foley is back on the case, playing hunches and avoiding trouble in the posh world of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. Foley can run, jump, crouch, shoot and climb inside and outside Los Angeles locations as he outsmarts his adversaries.
