Eidos makes some big games and now they're shrinking down some of them to handheld size specifically for gamers like me who are on the go and have only a handy handy. (that's funny for Europeans and not so much for Americans. Handy is another word for mobile or cell phone). 

The Eidos Christmas line-up includes a mix of original titles and classics – from Lara to new guys on the block, Kane and Lynch and the hugely addictive Sola Rola.


Kane and Lynch mobile: Inspired by IO Interactive’s highly anticipated title; players can experience 38 adrenaline filled levels through 5 gripping scenarios. The mobile version of Kane and Lynch takes the gritty essence of IO's new blockbuster title and combines it with innovative design to create a unique game for mobile handsets.

Perhaps it will get panned by another critic who will then get fired for his 'tone.' Since I do the reviews and can't really be fired I think I'm safe on all counts.

Tomb Raider: Anniversary Edition: To celebrate ten years of gaming’s most famous archaeologist, Lara Croft will star in a new adventure taking in familiar locations from her past. Inspired by the first three Tomb Raider mobile phone games, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider Anniversary faithfully preserves the elements which made the original mobile games some of the best available on the mobile platform. Taut, and fast-paced, this is a perfect tribute to one of gaming’s true legends and the first title to come from new British Developer, FinBlade.

Ahh Lara, now I can hold you in my hands and fondle your numbers and er...nevermind.

Sola Rola: An original title, Sola Rola is a fun mixture of puzzle and action elements in which users control two blobby heroes – Wiz and Waz – as they attempt to save the universe by manipulating shapes. Spanning 25 stages, Sola Rola is crammed with puzzles and uses a unique physics system in which objects and characters can be scaled, tilted and used to solve the increasingly difficult puzzles on offer.

Championship Manager 2008: Released to coincide with the PC version of the game, the mobile version of Championship Manager 2008 is a fully featured game of what is rightly regarded as the pioneer of football management titles. Developed by the award-winning Dundee based Dynamo Games, the mobile game features all the tactical acumen and logistics of the PC title, with a simple to navigate menu system and 2D match overlay specifically designed for handsets.


The last two I haven't got much information about. I think it's time to get in touch with Eidos and have a chat about that.
