Twentieth Century Fox and Glu Mobile Launch Ice Age 2: Arctic Slide


Side-Slipping Action Game Features Scrat Chasing Acorns

SAN MATEO, Calif. - March 20, 2006 - Twentieth Century Fox, one of the world’s largest producers and distributors of motion pictures, and Glu Mobile, a leading creator and global publisher of mobile entertainment, today announced the launch of Ice Age 2: Arctic Slide, a mobile game based on the animated film, “Ice Age: The Meltdown.” Also available for download are ringtones, wallpaper, and in select regions, video. The new movie is the highly anticipated sequel to Fox’s 2002 blockbuster, “Ice Age,” which grossed more than $381 million in global box office sales. “Ice Age: The Meltdown” will be released internationally starting on March 31, 2006.

The mobile game, created by the award-winning studios at Glu Mobile, features Scrat, whose love for acorns gets him into catastrophic trouble. Scrat chases acorns by sliding down frosty slopes, stalagmite caves and mountain peaks in more than 18 levels of high-speed, roller coaster-style fun.

“Scrat is a real audience pleaser and we think fans of the Ice Age films will love playing this game,” said Robert Nashak, chief creative officer, Glu Mobile. “With great graphics and easy controls, we’re bringing the animated world of Ice Age to life on your phone.”

Ice Age: Arctic Slide is now available to customers on major wireless carriers in more than 55 countries. For more information visit
