Mobile gamers can now throw Pingu on Java enabled mobile phones
The internet-version of "Pingu Throw" or "Smack the Pingu", as it is known by gamers around the world, has been played over 150 million times in less than ten weeks. Now this cult phenomena is available as a mobile game for a wide range of Nokia, Siemens and SonyEricsson mobile phones. The companies behind the success of this brand, Arvato mobile and Edelweiss Medienwerkstatt, presented "Yeti Sports: Pingu Throw", as a downloadable game for Java-enabled mobile phones.

The goal of the simple but addictive game is to have your Yeti smack the Pinguin at exactly the right moment and sent it off flying a long distance. With Yeti Sports Edelweiss created a smash hit game with worldwide appeal. The whole series will consist of ten different games resulting in a full "Yeti Sports Decathlon". Arvato mobile is planning to distribute "Yeti Sports: Pingu Throw" worldwide to network-operators and internet-portals. The game is currently available from some operators in Austria and Germany.

It's just worth noting that the promotional material is a Sony Ericsson T610, but the screenshot is actually from a Series 60 mobile phone. Some of our readers will know that the T610 does not run the Series 60 OS.
