FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SAN FRANCISCO  – January 16, 2014 – Renren Games, a subsidiary of Renren Inc. (NYSE: RENN), has unveiled  NBA Rush , the first NBA endless runner mobile game.  The new game, available free to download on iOS, features NBA players competing against alien invaders.

In  NBA Rush, gamers assemble their own all-star team by choosing select NBA players from 30 NBA teams.  To win, NBA players must weave through city streets, parks, tunnels, buses, cars and alien ships, while throwing down massive dunks on aliens.

NBA Rush incorporates all of the fun gameplay elements that define the endless runner genre with a basketball spin.  To change directions, NBA players execute crossover, behind-the-back and through-the-legs dribble moves.  When juking left and right doesn’t get a player through the alien defense, the NBA players’ hops will save the day. 

“In designing  NBA Rush, our goal was to highlight the incredible athletic skills of NBA stars by portraying them as superheroes who will save the earth from an alien invasion,” explains Martin Ma, Vice President of Strategy & Investment, Renren Games. “ NBA Rush brings arcade action to a mobile game we hope millions of NBA fans will enjoy.”

NBA Rush  will be free to download on the Apple App Store and will have in-game purchases to enhance gameplay.
