Scholastic Interactive, a division of Scholastic Media today announced that Goosebumps HorrorLand™ for Wii™, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and Nintendo DS™ and Ultimate I SPY™ for Wii™ has shipped to retail outlets nationwide. Both titles are distributed by Majesco Entertainment.
Marking the brand's first foray into console gaming, Goosebumps HorrorLand features spooky themes and eerie plot twists characteristic of the beloved brand. Goosebumps HorrorLand finds players in a fright-themed amusement park filled with thrilling rides, scary monsters and bone-chilling attractions. Players must travel through the park's five themed areas - including Carnival of Screams, Vampire Village, Fever Swamp, Mad Labs and Terror Tombs - in order to unravel the mystery behind HorrorLand. By completing 30 pulse-stopping rides and mini-games, such as Garlic Crusher, Bumper Carnage, Rub-A-Dub Slug, Calamity Canyon and more, players are able to navigate through the perils of each area and make it out of the park alive! Additionally, players have the choice to play in Story Mode, Arcade Mode or compete with friends in 12 ghoulish challenges in the multiplayer mode.
In Ultimate I SPY players navigate 3-D riddle screens, play paddleball, or complete puzzles to solve I SPY riddles. A first for the franchise, the 3-D riddle screens allow players to navigate through 360 and 180 environments - searching above, under and between objects. The game delivers 10 distinctly diverse beautiful locations and 40 riddles that are actively solved. As the player solves more riddles, a mysterious machine slowly evolves and reveals its true form. Ultimately, the players will reach the pulse-pounding climactic ending that will have them breaking a sweat in a race against the clock to perform a series of intense movements and reveal a special surprise. Additionally, Ultimate I SPY features a Game Room with 10 mini-games, complete with multiplayer options.
