Elixir of Life on JAVA-powered mobile


In the first episode Lara received a commission to retrieve a famous Egyptian work, The Osiris Codex. On returning from Egypt with the fabled manuscript, Lara finds that her anonymous employer wishes her to travel immediately to Tibet. Her destination is a nameless ancient monastery, which sits high on an escarpment.

Lara must secure a priceless ancient vase containing Cinnabar, a substance used in the creation of life affirming tinctures. Lara Croft is well aware that the supposedly mythical city of Shangri-La is actually rooted in Tibetan folklore, which describes a remote valley inhabited by immortals. Could this legend be linked to her latest adventure?

John Chasey, managing director of iomo says: "Lara Croft is quite simply the biggest star of the video games world. We are delighted to extend our relationship with Eidos and bring Tomb Raider to mobile phones and a potential audience of millions of new gamers around the world."

Simon Protheroe, Eidos' technical director says: "We wanted to work with a developer who we felt understood the franchise and could translate Lara's world onto mobile technology as sympathetically as possible. Iomo have proven they understand the technology and have created a valuable new addition to the Tomb Raider franchise."
