CBS AND CHILLINGO BRING THE CRIME-SOLVING THRILLS OF "NUMB3RS" TO THE iPAD AND iPHONE

"Numb3rs" Lives On as Fans Follow Their Passion for the Series through Clever Puzzles and Mini-Games

LOS ANGELES-October 7, 2010 - CBS Mobile and Chillingo, a leading downloadable games publisher, today announced the new mobile game based on the Emmy-nominated television series NUMB3RS is now available at the App Store. The game, now available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, lets fans continue their passion for the show and crime solving while taking on the role of a FBI consultant tasked to bring down a sinister, criminal network in Los Angeles.

NUMB3RS premiered on the CBS Television Network in January 2005, and was the most popular show airing on Friday evenings among all broadcast networks that season, and again from 2007-2008 in total viewers. NUMB3RS currently airs in broadcast syndication on weekends. For station and time, check your local listings at www.numb3rsweekends.com.

Developed by innovative indie game developer Apocalypse Train, the NUMB3RS game features a unique blend of action and logic as players face an array of mathematical puzzles and mini-games. Popular NUMB3RS characters including Charlie Eppes, Don Eppes, Amita Ramanujan and Larry Fleinhardt interact with players for an immersive experience to solve one of the agency's biggest cases.

"In the show NUMB3RS, the insights provided by Charlie, the brilliant mathematician are always crucial to solving the crime. We wanted to create a game that really lets fans try their own hand at using math-based gameplay within a limited time window to solve crimes and locate criminals," said Rob Gelick, Senior Vice President and General Manager, CBS Mobile. "We've worked with Chillingo and Apocalypse Train to create a game like no other currently in the Apple App store and we're excited to give NUMB3RS' fans another way to follow their passion."

"Publishing the official NUMB3RS title for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad allows us to offer a new puzzle full of star power and action to casual gamers worldwide," explains Andy Needham, Head of Publishing, Chillingo. "Using mathematical equations and interacting with authentic characters from the show in an all-new mystery, players will feel like they are on the show while they play."

Additional gameplay features include:

· Math-Based Gameplay: Step into the shoes of a math genius, where equations are your weapon. Solve equations quickly before they reach the "Error Zone" to locate criminals.

· Gripping Mini-Games: Sleuthing gets even more exciting as players partake in various missions including: car chases, diffusing bombs, interrogating suspects and more

· Multiple Difficulty Levels: Players can modify the settings (Easy, Normal and Genius Modes) to their preferences for a tailored game experience.

· Chillingo's social gaming platform, Crystal, allows players to compare scores and rankings via online leaderboards and achievements.

The NUMB3RS game is now available for .99 cents from the App Store on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
