Astraware’s July 4th celebrations – Fireworks! Independence Day Edition & Rocket Mania

THE MIDLANDS, ENGLAND – June 29th, 2005 – Join the American celebrations for July 4th with Fireworks! – Independence Day Edition – FREE and Rocket Mania for only $4.95.

This coming weekend America will celebrate Independence Day. To help celebrate this national holiday, Astraware have created a special version of their FREE Fireworks! screensaver which shows sequences of fireworks flying and exploding into the air. Fireworks! – Independence Day Edition features a selection of patriotic backgrounds including the Statue of Liberty and the Stars and Stripes, and the application even plays the Star Spangled Banner, so your PDA can make you stand to attention!

If you’re not celebrating the July 4th holiday but still enjoy fireworks, we have a great discount on Rocket Mania. Twist and turn the fuses to link a burning match to one or more rockets, then watch the sparks fly! Upgrade your rockets for bigger bangs by collecting coins along the way. But watch out – set off your fireworks by dawn or the show is over! How many can you launch at one time? For one week only Rocket Mania is available for just $4.95.

Both Rocket Mania and Fireworks! – Independence Day Edition are available for Palm OS® and Windows Mobile™ for Pocket PC devices. Both titles are available from June 29th-July 5th from the Astraware website.
