SOUTHPEAK GAMES ANNOUNCES ‘ROOGOO’ ON XBOX LIVE ARCADE AND WINDOWS-BASED PC
Save the Planet in this Imaginative Multiplayer Puzzle Game
SouthPeak Games today announced Roogoo for Xbox LIVE® Arcade and Windows-based PC, slated for release this April. Developed by SpiderMonk Entertainment, Roogoo is an innovative and unusual 3D puzzle game that has players guide and stack different shaped blocks through various platforms to not only save planet Roo, but the entire Roogoo race.
“Roogoo is a rare, multi-player puzzle game that combines compulsive play and an engaging storyline,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “The game’s intuitive controls, unique charm, and production quality, will compel anyone to pick up and play but also challenge those looking to be the guru of Roogoo.”
Roogoo tasks players with guiding meteors in the form of shaped blocks though a series of rotating disks as a means of saving planet Roo and the entire Roogoo race. If aligned correctly, the disks allow the blocks to reach the ground and scores are awarded. Various obstacles and enemies will impede the blocks’ movement and with the flow of meteor blocks steadily increasing as the game progresses, players will have to think on their feet to save the Roogoo and rack up seriously high scores.
The new puzzle game features more than 45 puzzle levels with single-player, two-player split screen and party game modes. Roogoo introduces bonus challenges and stages as the game progresses with new shapes and characters.
“We set out to build an addictive, casual game that would be easy to play yet difficult to master,” said Scott March, President at SpiderMonk Entertainment. “SouthPeak gave us the freedom to push the limits of creativity and it resulted in a game that is truly different and has something for everyone. Not only do we have solid gameplay mechanics, but we have added a story element to the experience to really keep players engaged.”
Roogoo on Windows-based PC includes high-end and low-end versions on the same disc to ensure PC compatibility with system requirements. More information about Roogoo coming soon.
