Amiga Inc. announces the Amiga® Anywhere Entertainment Pack #1 for Pocket PC, Pocket PC 2002, Windows CE 3.0, and Windows CE .NET-based devices.

Rich multi-media applications designed for handheld systems to be released on April 15th, 2002

April 10, 2002 Snoqualmie, WA - Amiga, Inc. announced the release schedule of the Amiga Anywhere Entertainment Pack #1 for Windows Powered Devices. The Entertainment Pack will run on devices using Windows CE 3.0, Windows CE .NET, Pocket PC, and Pocket PC 2002 including handhelds, smart phones, web pads, and set-top boxes.

The Entertainment Pack #1 will contain four applications and the Amiga Anywhere Content Engine. These include the award winning Planet Zed and Convex games from ZeoNeo as well as Gobbler and Solitaire from Pulsar Interactive (see screenshots below). The Amiga Anywhere Content Engine allows access to more Amiga Anywhere applications available now and in the future.

"Since announcing a change from hardware to software Amiga has strived to create and distribute content that can run on numerous digital devices. Amiga is now focused on the vision that all digital content should be available on all digital devices," said Bill McEwen, President and CEO of Amiga Inc. "To that end Amiga has announced distribution of dozens of applications that can run on a wide range of different types of devices with hundreds more currently in development".

The Amiga Anywhere Entertainment Pack #1 will provide an exciting experience for owners of Windows Powered handheld devices without using the amount of resources consumed by other applications. Amiga developers are creating rich content using few resources. The average size of an Amiga Anywhere application is under 300KB and yet delivers a more robust experience than titles that are over 2 MB in size."

"As mobile devices become smarter and more powerful, users are asking for rich entertainment and gaming experiences," said Scott Horn, director, Embedded and Appliance Platforms Group, Microsoft Corp. "The combination of the Windows CE operating system's multimedia functionality and Amiga's software solution allows developers to deliver rich applications for a broad range of Windows Powered devices."

Amiga Anywhere Entertainment Pack #1 will ship on April 15, 2002.
