Ascend Acquisition And National Geographic Games Launch ‘National Geographic Dino Land’ Mobile Game

Stocks in this article: ASCQ

National Geographic and Ascend Acquisition Corp., through its wholly owned subsidiary, Andover Games, bring an exciting dinosaur park game to mobile devices with the launch of National Geographic Dino Land for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, available later this month on the App Store.

National Geographic Dino Land is an interactive time- and resource-management game in which players build and customize their own dinosaur park while learning fun facts about real dinosaurs. It expands upon the gameplay mechanics of the most successful games in the market within the genre. Each dinosaur in the game has facts and photos from National Geographic’s popular “Ultimate Dinopedia” iPad app and book.

Players are challenged to collect and breed dinosaurs in a fun interactive environment where they can unlock new species as they become better at managing their resources. Players will be able to enhance their experience with in-app purchases for premium dinosaurs and items to decorate their park, as well as bonus features and gameplay. National Geographic Dino Land mixes elements of both prehistoric and modern style, resulting in a game landscape that is fun, youthful and educational.

“We are delighted to team with Ascend Acquisition to provide an educational experience consistent with the culture and values of the National Geographic Society,” said Chris Mate, National Geographic’s vice president of Games. “We believe that players of all ages will enjoy National Geographic Dino Land and all the exciting challenges posed by this fun and engaging game.”

“We are pleased that the first major mobile game launch at Andover Games is associated with National Geographic,” said Craig dos Santos, chief executive officer of Ascend Acquisition. “Teaming with National Geographic is part of our strategy of linking our high quality mobile games with powerful brands. We look forward to making announcements of other games currently in beta testing in the near future.”
