Glu Mobile Launches Gun Bros 2; Delivers iOS and OS X Mountain Lion, Real-Time
San Francisco, Calif. - Feb. 21, 2013 - Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: GLUU), a
leading global developer and publisher of freemium games for smartphone and
tablet devices, today announced the availability of the company's new game, Gun
Bros 2, available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac. The next episode in
Glu's original hit freemium franchise, Gun Bros 2 delivers dynamic top-down
style gameplay complete with new environments, massive boss fights, and over-
the-top weapons. Gun Bros 2 multiplayer modes
allow players on iOS and OS X
Mountain Lion to compete with one another in real-time. This is the first title
that Glu has launched simultaneously across both mobile and desktop devices.
"Gun Bros put freemium mobile action/adventure gaming on the map more than two
years ago and we are pleased with the success of the franchise. We anticipate
that Gun Bros fans will find Gun Bros 2 to be an outstanding sequel," said Mike
DeLaet, SVP of Global Publishing. "Gun Bros 2 is a great addition to Glu's
cross-platform portfolio and we are thrilled to engage users on both smartphones
and desktop devices. Glu's ability to provide impressive 3D graphics on a broad
array of screens aligns with the preference of today's gamers to consume content
on a variety of different devices."
The Gun Bros are back and, once again, responsible for defending the galaxy.
Staged years after the first T.O.O.L. war, Percy and Francis are challenged to
defend the galaxy from the T.O.O.L. insurgency. The last conflict left both
sides scrambling to rebuild their armories. Old Xplodium mines have now been
reopened and even decommissioned factories are once again roaring to life as the
conflict escalates. It is up to the Gun Bros to stop this threat from
reemerging, as they'll need to contend with an even more devastating arsenal of
killing machines. Luckily, they've got access to a host of new gear to support
Features of Gun Bros 2 include:
* Real-Time Multiplayer - Battle the T.O.O.L. with your Game Center friends
across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.
* Build the Brotherhood - Invite your Facebook and Game Center bros to join
your tour of duty with an improved Brotherhood system.
* Endless Mode - Compete head-to-head with your bros and rise up the
leaderboard in endless mode.
* New Guns & Outrageous MODS - Choose from a broad range of weapons including
pistols, rocket launchers, laser weapons, and shotguns. Collect MODS and
equip your weapon to gain secondary, tertiary and even quaternary fire
modes. Players can even unleash multiple MODS at once!
* Mega Boss Battles - Battle against the Pus Titan, Maullusk and The
* Tanks - No tour of a hostile alien planet would be complete without a tank
to mow down the locals. Hop into the Honey Badger tank and do some donuts on
your enemy's face.
* Free Armor - There is free armor in certain missions, but it's up to you to
find it and grab it. Increase your HP and SPD with bold new styles conceived
by the galaxy's top fashion designers and military experts.

iPad or iPod touch or at bit.ly/Wb9dkT
