Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 18, 2005
Planetwide Games, a leading publisher and distributor of video games worldwide, today announced that Planetwide Games will be publishing Pixel Popper GamesÂ, based on uWInk's (OTCBB: UWNK.OB) Game Library of 80 Video Arcade Games.
Pixel Popper's rich library of highly challenging video games includes more than 70 short form games of strategy (Dragon Flip, Pharoah's Run, Balloon Bash, Bloxx) , trivia (Trivia Trial, Major Trivia, Trivia Content Library), sports (Batter Up, Tee Off, Zillionaire Sports), and card games (Super Solitaire, Classic Tarot, Draw Poker), all simple to learn, but nearly impossible to master. Originally designed by Nolan Bushnell, the founder and former CEO of Atari Corporation and Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theater, for the public space consumer market, the games exhibit a quality, functionality, and exciting game play not generally seen on the Internet. Pixel Poppers will be available online at Planetwide Games' web site: http://www.planetwidegames.com.
"uWink's Game Library coupled with Planetwide Games online distribution channel creates a strong combination," said Nolan Bushnell, uWink CEO. "The pending release of 'RYL: Path of the Emperor,' Planetwide Games' massive multi-player online role playing game (MMORPG), represents a significant opportunity to introduce people of all ages to Pixel Popper's, based on uWink's Game Library."
"The combination of Nolan Bushnell's video game wizardry and uWink's Game Library and Planetwide Games' innovative marketing and unique channels of distribution translates into a powerful platform to bring video games to the mass market," said Kevin Donovan, Planetwide Games President. "The rich content of the uWink Video Game Library raises the bar of video game standards, which Planetwide Games is confident that gamers will truly enjoy."
