Majesco Announces 'Pet Pals: Animal Doctor' For The NDS
New Game Incorporates Medical Cases from Real Veterinarians
Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Pet Pals: Animal Doctor for the Nintendo DS™. Developed by Legacy Interactive and Frontline Studios, Pet Pals: Animal Doctor invites players to step into the challenging world of veterinary medicine as they diagnose and treat 30 different medical cases created by real-life veterinarians.
“Millions of people are pet owners but few have in-depth knowledge of the behind-the-scenes care required to keep our beloved animals healthy,” said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations, Majesco. “Pet Pals: Animal Doctor is a fun, challenging game that will give DS owners a better understanding of veterinary medicine as they treat animals via realistic Touch Screen procedures.”
In Pet Pals: Animal Doctor, players will learn the techniques required to diagnose and treat 23 different lovable pets, including a Yorkshire terrier, python, turtle, parakeet, rabbit, Siamese cat and hamster. To do so, players must successfully administer more than 40 Touch Screen tests while interacting with stressed patients and concerned pet owners. Thirty different medical cases, from hairballs to infections to broken bones, were created by real veterinarians and lend authenticity to the game play. After treatment, players can feed, clean and play with their patients in the Recovery Room to help improve each animal’s spirits as it heals.
Pet Pals: Animal Doctor will launch in early 2008 for a suggested retail price of $19.99. For additional information on this game as well as Majesco’s exciting line of products, please visit www.majescoentertainment.com.
