NAMCO BANDAI’s
New Brain Teaser Game Hits the Spot as a Fun and Quirky Game of
Concentration for the Nintendo DS™

 

Leading video games
publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today announced that
its newest Nintendo DS™ game, QuickSpot™, has shipped to
retail outlets across North America and will be available in stores
beginning this week.  QuickSpot’s fun and addicting gameplay
will have gamers testing their concentration and training their brains as
they are challenged to spot the differences between two seemingly identical
pictures using the Nintendo DS touch screen.

 

“Taking a simple game
concept and making it fun and addictive is the key to QuickSpot’s charm,”
said Makoto Iwai, Executive Vice President and COO, NAMCO BANDAI Games
America Inc.  “Gamers young and old will love how easy it is to pick up and
play while keeping their brain on fire for hours with entertaining games of
concentration and speed.”

QuickSpot
contains three challenging
single player modes; the main mode being Rapid Play, which has five levels
each containing 10 stages and a boss challenge at the end of each level. 
Players will be awarded medals for points they achieve based on their “Brain
Activity” which test their Intuition, Concentration, Recognition, Stability,
and Judgment.  The higher the players score in each area the more points
they earn. Other exciting single player modes include Focus Play, which
contains 140 unique pictures with 10 differences for the player to spot in
each picture, and Today’s Fortune, which gives players their Health, Study,
Romance, and Money fortune for the day.

QuickSpot
also includes three
multiplayer modes including Time Bomb, which allows two to up to eight
players to pass one Nintendo DS back and forth between turns, Scramble Mode,
and Download Play in which players can compete against each other on
multiple Nintendo DS systems.

QuickSpot
is rated “E10+” for Everyone by the ESRB and has a suggested retail price of
