Alawar Entertainment releases
Magic Ball 4
Alawar Entertainment, a leading
publisher of casual games, today released Magic Ball 4, the long-awaited sequel
to the popular series of Breakout-style casual games.
The Magic Ball series features the
most popular 3D Breakout titles in the world. To date, Alawar has sold over two
million Magic Ball games, ported the series to several platforms, including the
Apple iPhone and Sony Playstation 3, and translated it into English, Russian,
German, French, Spanish and Japanese. The console version of Magic Ball 3 for
PlayStation 3 was the third best-selling product on the PlayStation Network for
two consecutive months.
The developers of Magic Ball 4 did a
complete overhaul of the gameplay, adding hilarious new bonuses and a slew of
valuable trophies. Awards are given for outstanding achievements, including the
quick completion of levels and the ability to dodge enemy shells. In addition,
each stage contains several hidden diamonds. When the player collects every one
in the game, he earns the top trophy.
In addition to offering fun and
addictive gameplay, Magic Ball 4 is a visual showstopper. The full version
features four stunning worlds, including a snow-clad northern territory, the
Amazonian jungles and African savanna, the exotic landscapes of Japan and China,
and a wildly inventive distant planet. Magic Ball 4 also features realistic
physics and cool weather effects.
To immerse players even further, the
creators of Magic Ball 4 devised an exciting story of alien abduction and daring
rescue. Vividly drawn comic strips carry the hero from Earth to a far-off world
to strike objects from home with the Magic Ball of Relativity, and in so doing
return the items to their rightful place.
"Casual games are constantly
evolving, with new types of entertainment replacing traditional ones," said
Kirill Plotnikov, Alawar’s VP of Publishing. "While hidden object titles and
business sims are becoming more and more popular, certain kinds of games have
eternal appeal. The Magic Ball series is one example. Fans old and new are going
to love it."
