‘Bunnies’ Bring Atari and Zynga Together

Two well known names in video games and mobile gaming have come together for a

Atari – the venerable publisher and developer of interactive entertainment that children of the 1980s all know and love – and Zynga – the struggling but still leading provider of social game services – have teamed for an unlikely endeavor.

Both are behind the launch of Super Bunny Breakout through the Apple App Store.

In this new take on the retro arcade classic, players will meet a colorful cast of characters and enjoy physics-based, Breakout-style gameplay. Super Bunny Breakout is available now for $0.99 on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, along with a free demo version called Super Bunny Breakout Free.

Although the release of the game is netting the majority of headlines, the partnership is the real story – something we’re likely to continue seeing as the mobile gaming industry grows and evolves.

“Atari is a legendary innovator of video gaming and we are proud to partner with a company that has such a strong legacy in the industry,” says Ben Jones, Vice President of Mobile Publishing at Zynga. “Zynga is committed to partnering with companies that produce high-quality titles to bring more games in more genres to its global network of players.”

“Super Bunny Breakout is a fresh take on the iconic Breakout franchise, adding all new features, game play and a humorous cast of characters,” adds Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari. “Our partnership with Zynga provides a platform to create visibility for the game and the Atari brand overall.”
