Press Release                                                                                                             February 4, 2014

 JABB Interactive, LLC

JABB Interactive, an independent game developer, was selected to display their new iOS game app, BasketWars, at the 2014 Apps World conference this week on February 5 th and 6 th, in the Indie Game Zone area Z5 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.  BasketWars was selected as one of the best and most exciting games to be launched to the iOS App Store in 2014.

BasketWars, scheduled for release in March, 2014 to the iOS App Store, is an action-packed basketball game based on the famous battles of World War II.  Use your soldier to launch the balls up in the air and into the basket.  These are no ordinary balls though… they have some serious firepower! Each amazingly designed WWII influenced ball has a unique weapon to help you defeat the enemy and make the perfect shot. Armed with guns, grenades, and missiles, getting past each boss will be nearly impossible.  With over 60 masterfully designed levels, and 6 insane Bosses, BasketWars is a true test of strength and skill.  Play alone or challenge your friends to a battle of epic proportion.  

Attendees that visit JABB Interactive’s booth, will have the opportunity to play BasketWars and potentially win$500 for playing the “30 Second Challenge”, where individuals will have 30 seconds to make 10 shots.  JABB will also be displaying select levels of BasketWars that will show off its amazing characters and overall design. 

Founder of JABB Interactive, Jeremy Born, will also take part in The Big Indie Pitch, an opportunity for indie developers to pitch their games to the some of the most influential mobile app journalists in the world.  At the end of the 2-hour session, the journalists will confer and the winning game will be announced.  Founder, Jeremy Born said, “If we are selected to win the Big Indie Pitch, this will propel BasketWars to the top of the App Store.”…we are ready for the challenge and feel BasketWars is positioned to be the next big game franchise in 2014 and beyond.”

Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, will be the keynote speaker, along with several other big names in the industry including:  Mark Frons, CIO of the New York Times, Kristian Segerstrale, co-founder of Initial Capital, and Jay Altschuler, Director of Global Media Innovation at Unilever.  With over 8000 developers, mobile marketers, mobile operators, device manufacturers, platform owners and industry professionals, this event is a must for anyone in the mobile application space.

JABB Interactive is an independent application development firm specializing in bringing unique and innovative apps to the mobile/tablet market.  Their outside-the-box thinking creates winning apps for businesses and individuals looking to integrate mobile applications into their business model.
