This month, fans looking for a new and addictive addition for their
Nintendo DS game library can try Touchmaster, Midway's collection of
popular touchscreen interactive games coming exclusively to Nintendo
DS™. Gamers looking to try before they buy can bring their Nintendo DS™
to major retail stores and download a demo of the game to experience the
simple and addicting //Crystal Balls// puzzle game, one of 23 touch
screen games that will appear on Touchmaster when it ships to stores on
June 25.

The demo will be available at the following retail stores:

· GameStop

· Target

· Game Crazy

· Fry's

· Best Buy

· Toys R Us

· Wal-Mart

· Circuit City

In this e-mail, we've also included game descriptions and screens for
all seven games in the "Puzzle" category, including "Crystal Balls."


*Crystal Balls:*

Match
at least three numbers or colors in a row to make the balls disappear.
If you can clear everything below the marked line, your point values
will go up. Score big with combos, but make sure not to run out of balls!


*Mahki*

Clear
as many tiles as you can by grouping alike tiles then double tapping the
group to remove them. When removed, tiles from above will fall, and
they'll move to the right whenever a whole column is cleared. There are
two modes of play: easy with four colors, and hard with five colors.


*Pairs*

Billiards
have never been played like this before. Remove balls from the table by
touching similar, adjacent balls. Use the next pass button or cue ball
to help you out of jams. When no moves are available, hit the Break
button to scramble the table.


*Times Square*

Strategically
place the number tiles in the grid to gain the maximum of points. Pay
attention to the multiplier value, and make sure to make wise use of
your Wilds.


*Wordz*

Quickly
figure out the hidden phrase by selecting a letter for each tile.
Remember, the timer is always running, so don't run out of time while
selecting letters or typing in the answer.


*Mah Jongg Pairs*

Quickly
clear the tiles for this classic version of a familiar favorite. Easy
mode makes things a bit simpler, using numbers and letters, while Hard
mode uses traditional Chinese shapes and symbols. When the game starts
you can change the layout to any of the four available layouts.


*Gem Slide*

v:shapes="_x0000_s1032">
When
three or more alike gems touch each other they will disappear. For each
move that doesn't form at least three alike gems in a row, additional
gemstones will be added randomly around the board, making it more
difficult to clear the gems. A level is completed when every gem has
been used or removed from the board or no more moves are available.


*About Touchmaster*

**Touchmaster™** a favorite in bars and arcades across the country are
will now be available whenever, wherever with **Touchmaster**,
