Edmonton, Canada (PRWEB) March 4, 2008
PlayPond, a leading developer of casual games, today announced the launch of DragonStone™, a new puzzle action game. DragonStone brings together elements of fantasy role-playing, adventuring, and puzzle action for a unique game experience that appeals to all ages. DragonStone carries a retail price of $19.99, and a free demo of the game, with no time limit, is available for immediate download at PlayPond Games. Under development for more than two years, DragonStone is PlayPond's most ambitious and largest title to date.
DragonStone brings to life a world of fantasy and enchanting visuals in an action packed game. Players take on the role of Baldric the Knight on his perilous quest to recover the DragonStone. Players will have to overcome puzzles, interact with strange inhabitants, and use the gold they collect to buy character upgrades as they journey across 8 different lands.
Game play consists of color-matching, puzzle-solving, and action. A bow located at the top of the screen is used for dropping stones or firing arrows into a scrolling playfield. Each playfield is made up of numerous puzzle obstacles and enemies that float on top of platforms.
Puzzle elements are overcome by matching them with similar colored stones while enemies can be dispatched by shooting them or by using one of the game's power-ups. Players will also win Honors for completing specific tasks within the game, such as defeating 25 enemies. The unique blend of puzzle elements, rewards, and unfolding storyline gives players a great sense of progress and accomplishment.
DragonStone Key Features include:
- Adventure and Puzzle Game Modes
- Unique Action and Puzzle Elements
- 80 Original Levels
- Multiple Game Endings
