Konami Ships Death, Jr. and the Science Fair
of Doom

DJ and Pandora Make Their Nintendo DS Debut
with Twisted Touch Screen Action and Frantic Mini-Games

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today
announced it has shipped Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom to retail
stores nationwide. The first adventure for Death, Jr. (DJ) and Pandora on the
Nintendo DS™, the game seamlessly blends precise platforming with frantic touch
screen action as the unlikely pair of heroes battle through a science fair gone
horribly wrong.

Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom follows
DJ and his friend Pandora as they try to rescue their friends Smith and Weston,
Seep and Stigmartha from their magically mutated school after a science
experiment unleashes the fearsome evil demon Moloch. Controlling both DJ and
Pandora as they progress through the game, players will use a unique combination
of touch screen gestures and button presses to unleash a variety of melee
attacks. DJ and Pandora can also collect an arsenal of ranged weapons including
twin pistols, shotguns and explosive C4-equipped hamsters. In addition to
combat, players will use advanced platforming maneuvers through the game’s fully
3D levels, grabbing onto ledges and swinging from poles to reach incredible
heights.

Marking the debut of competitive head-to-head
multiplayer action to the Death, Jr. series, Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of
Doom features intense mini-games that let up to four players battle it out
wirelessly across two unique game types. In Reaper Ricochet mode, two players
bounce C4 hamsters off of graveyard headstones to see who can destroy the most
fixtures before their hamster detonates. In War mode, players split up into
teams of two and engage in tactical shoot ‘em up action in a number of
side-scrolling stages.

Developed by Backbone Entertainment, a division
of Foundation 9 Entertainment, Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom has a
suggested retail price of $29.99 and is rated “E10+” by the ESRB. For more
