Paradox Entertainment, through its subsidiary Conan Properties International, has begun internal development of mobile games based on its library of character properties. First out is Conan in "Tower of the Elephant", based on the original Robert E. Howard story, for iPhone and iPad. Developing the game with Paradox Entertainment is L.A.-based Dogtown Studios. Expected release in fourth quarter 2010.

As Conan, you scale the mysterious Tower of the Elephant, fighting vicious enemies and avoiding deadly traps, to finally reach the captive Yag-Kosha and the evil Yara. The game features stunning graphics and an open, mission-based gameplay where every mission will take you deeper into the world of Conan. "Tower of the Elephant" is a new gaming experience for iDevices. The game uses Dogtown Studios' proprietary iPhone 3D engine A2SA and features HD graphics. Using the retina display, iPhone 4 users will experience the best possible gaming experience.

"Our portfolio of character-based properties suits itself very well for interactive media such as mobile gaming. Dogtown Studios has produced several successful games and we’re looking forward to this and future games based on Conan and other characters," said Fredrik Malmberg, President and CEO of Paradox Entertainment Inc.

Leading the production are Paradox Entertainment's VP of Production Daniel Wagner and Dogtown Studios' Creative Director Mikael Tyrsén. The official game page can be found on http://www.paradoxmobilegames.com. Read more about the development of the game on Dogtown Studios' development blog: http://www.dogtownst...ategory/conan/.

While this is Conan's first step into mobile gaming, the character is widely available in publishing (comic books, novels), collectibles (statues, action figures, model kits), gaming (MMO, strategy boardgame), apparel and other categories. The new Conan movie, featuring Jason Momoa as Conan, as well as Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Rachel Nichols, Ron Perlman and Leo Howard, is currently in post-production and slated for a summer/fall 2011 release.

This is fantastic!:D These may be the apps that makes me by the Ipad. Sure hope they work for the Ipod 3rd generation touch.

Will this new generation of games ever become available for PC?
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

I for one am looking forward to this. Precious few adventures for iPhone.
And would this be the first game based directly on a REH story?

An Android version would be appreciated as well considering that Android devices are outselling the iPhone.

agreed, I believe the current ratio is android based machines to IOs mis someething like 3/1

not a big gamer but the idea of playing it on my HTC Desire does appeal

I second this notion. My Nexus One would love to get some "Conan action" besides the emulated Amiga Games of old hehe
Let us show them our hearts and then show them theirs!

Right, just searched for apps under "Conan". Aside from a chat for the online game, mostly only Sherlock Holmes stuff. ;)

I think it's a Q4 release based on Jay's report there.

For now it's iOS only. We're still aiming for Q4, but that does not mean Oct 1. You'll get progress updates through a devblog that will be launched shortly.

I'm really looking forward to this, so much so that I went out and bought a 4th generation ipod touch.

So since this still is not out and if you got .99 cents grab HERO of Sparta II for your Iphone/Ipod/Ipad.

Its a lot like the Conan game that was on Xbox360/PS3.
