Elements Distills Swap-and-Match Fun

MumboJumbo launches Renaissance alchemy game
for digital download

Swap-and-match games became more intense recently
when Dallas-based, casual game developer MumboJumbo launched Elements. The new
game, which is a twist on the popular genre of game play, is now available for
digital download at MumboJumbo.com and other game portals.

The premise of Elements revolves around a book of
clues left behind by Leonardo Da Vinci’s confidante who is studying alchemy. The
game challenges players to distill nature’s greatest forces and unlock the
elements needed to create the Elixir of Life. Featuring more than 50 levels, 15
elements and Renaissance-inspired artwork, Elements provides three unique game
modes: classic, timed and relaxed.

MumboJumbo, an industry leader in casual games,
plans to take Elements to retail later this year. DFC Intelligence analysts
predicted last week that 2008 would be a banner year for casual games. According
to Gamasutra.com, “DFC Intelligence forecasts that 2008 will be far and away the
biggest year ever for the game industry.”

“Elements really stands out from the other
content in our industry because we’ve not only elevated the swap-and-match game
play, but we’ve laid that out over an engrossing mystery and really beautiful
Renaissance-inspired graphics,” said Mark Cottam, CEO of MumboJumbo. “And, the
best part is that the game is truly addictive!”

Having only been available a few days, the game
has already received a warm reception from casual game portals like Reflexive
Entertainment and Big Fish, receiving a “Customer Favorite” icon on the latter.
