Henry Hatsworth In The Puzzling Adventure for the Nintendo DS Ships

March 17,2009


Highly-Anticipated, Quirky
Nintendo DS Title Combines Adventure and Puzzle Genres for Maximum Fun

Well-dressed adventurer Henry
Hatsworth will enter hearts, minds and Nintendo DS systems around the world as
the EA Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc. announces Henry Hatsworth in the
Puzzling Adventure™ for Nintendo DS ships to stores in North America today and
will hit Europe later this week. Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure
combines an exhilarating adventure game on the top screen, and an enthralling
puzzle game on the bottom screen, to create an interactive game play experience
unique to the DS.

“We are excited for players to
experience how much fun it is to fuse these two popular genres,” said Scott
Walker, Executive Producer. “Casual players will enjoy jumping right into the
fun, while more seasoned gamers will really get into the strategy behind how to
utilize the puzzle to progress through the adventure.”

Players will embark on a journey
through a wonderful new style of gaming as Henry Hatsworth, a light-hearted,
tea-sipping British chap. As Henry, the top Adventurer in the Pompous Adventurer
Club, players will explore 35 levels in five exotic worlds. Players also will
take on delightfully strange opponents, including outrageous world-ending bosses
such as Leopold Charles Anthony Weasleby the Third (the #2 Adventurer in the
Pompous Adventurer Club) and Lance Banson (voted Sky Pirate Magazine’s
Handsomest Most Eligible Bachelor of the Year).

Throughout the game, players switch
back and forth between navigating an action-platform game on the top screen, and
mastering a fun yet challenging puzzle on the bottom screen. Worlds collide as
the player begins to see how game play on the top and the bottom screens affect
one another, creating a cause and effect relationship. Players will defeat
enemies in the top screen only to find that they then become part of the puzzle
mode on the bottom screen. Players complete puzzle combinations in the bottom
screen to earn power ups, health and energy that will enhance their ability to
play in the adventure mode on the top screen. A mastery of puzzle strategy and
skill results in Tea Time, a supercharge of energy where Hatsworth turns from
his charming self into a giant, indestructible mech robot!

Developed by a team at EA Tiburon in
the EA Play Label, Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure is rated E for
Everyone by the ESRB and 7+ by PEGI. The game has an MSRP of $29.99. For more
