MERCURY SET TO RISE AGAIN
SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 13, 2006 - Ignition Entertainment, a worldwide developer and publisher of interactive software, announced today their plans to bring the addictive puzzler sequel "Mercury Meltdown" (www.mercurymeltdown.com) to the PSPtm (PlayStationÂ®Portable) system. Scheduled for an August 22nd launch, Mercury Meltdown expands massively on the unique game play of the highly-acclaimed PSP system launch title, "Archer Maclean's Mercury."
Modeled after the old-fashioned wooden labyrinth game, Mercury Meltdown lets you take control of a liquid mercury 'blob', guiding it around traps, door switches, spikes, moving floors and other hazardous elements. The sequel features a fresh, vibrant graphical style with a zany cartoon quality.
"While remaining true to the first game, Mercury Meltdown has a more accessible look and feel designed to appeal to a wider audience," said Paul Robinson, president of Ignition Entertainment. "Gamers who loved the first Mercury title will still find their favorite elements, now with over 160 challenging levels, party games and new mercury blob physics."
Revisit the twists and turns of this unique series, with numerous new game play features including:
* State-of-the-art blob physics including normal mercury, solid, cold and hot forms.
* Freeform game progression.
* 'Ghost' and 'Replay' modes to view your past game performance.
* Super-fast load times.
* Downloadable content via Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's official YourPSPtm website.
* Hidden labs and party games to unlock.
