Puzzle Sensation “WordJong” for Nintendo DS™ Now Shipping
Destineer announces today that the Nintendo DS™ version of the hard-to-resist puzzle sensation WordJong has shipped, and will be on store shelves by the end of the week. One of the best-selling downloadable games online, WordJong is made even better with DS-exclusive features like Daily Mode, Temple Challenge Mode, Local Wireless and Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection multiplayer, and more!
WordJong features simple, yet engrossing gameplay: Use a set of lettered tiles to create words, clearing the board as you use tiles. Shoot for high-scoring words, earn bonus tiles, and attempt to clear the board with no leftover letters. WordJong boasts several new features exclusive to the Nintendo DS system, including:
Solo Play: Play through one of three highly addictive game modes. Choose a puzzle from the calendar and try to beat the computer’s high score in Daily Mode. Accumulate rank medals as you climb your way to the top in Temple Challenge Mode. Or, defeat each of the seven AI characters in head-to-head matches in Tournament Mode.
Multiplayer Modes: Go head-to-head with a friend over Local Wireless, or connect to the internet via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and take on players from around the world. Have a friend without the game? Use the DS Download Play option to gift a puzzle or play head-to-head using just one game!
Zodiac Characters: Take on stylized characters from the Chinese zodiac throughout all of the game modes. Each of the seven characters has his or her own personality and play style, representing a different difficulty level ranging from easy (the Rabbit) to hard (the Dragon).
Additional Features: WordJong features a 100,000+ word dictionary, loads of challenges and awards to acquire, full support for both the Control Pad and Touch Screen, and much, much more!
WordJong is developed by Magellan Interactive from an original design by Gameblend Studios, and is scheduled for an November 2007 release, with a MSRP of $19.99.
