Polar Games 2 Takes Pool, Golf to
Comedic New Level
MumboJumbo launches sequel to
smash hit Polar Games at retailers nationwide today
The wild and zany polar bears that
more than 13 million players have come to know and love are back. Today
MumboJumbo launched WildTangent’s Polar Games 2 at retailers throughout North
America. The latest installment takes players from the tropics to the poles and
features Polar Pool and Polar Golfer: Pineapple Cup.
The much anticipated sequel to Polar
Games, the duo out today provides players with comical takes on billiards and
golf. In Polar Pool, the bears are back in another cool sport playing classics
like 8 and 9-ball pool and the quirky Power Pool. The game offers solo and
multiplayer modes and lets players unlock new characters and a variety of
tables. Polar Golfer: Pineapple Cup features nine- and 18-hole courses, tropical
fairways and all new natural disasters and hazards. Players can choose from
eight characters, including favorites Walrus, Gopher and Santa and new
characters Hula Girl and Tiki Guy.
MumboJumbo, an industry leader in
casual games, said that Polar Games 2 looks to offer up dynamic content to its
loyal audience. “We’re very proud to bring Polar Games 2 to retailers
nationwide—both Polar Golfer Pineapple Cup and Polar Pool bring challenging and
comical content to the 13 million fans of the original,” said Mark Cottam, CEO
Polar Games 2 launches on the heels
of a Parks Associate report that stated 34 percent of U.S. Internet households
play online games on a weekly basis, which was more frequent than the
percentages of households watching online videos like YouTube or social
networking through sites like MySpace and Facebook.
Polar Games 2 is rated ‘E’ for
Everyone with a descriptor for “Comic Mischief” and is on sale at national
retailers for $19.99.
