Los Angeles, CA (May 21, 2008) – Acclaim Games is pleased to announce the official launch of Ponystars, a fantasy-genre multiplayer online game where players collect, breed, embellish, and care for a herd of magic Ponystars.
Ponystars is a free to play online game for gamers and horse lovers of all ages, further widening Acclaim’s growing market appeal. The browser-based game is also the first Acclaim title that requires no download, so Ponystars is easily accessible to anyone who wants to play for free through their web browser.
“Acclaim is enthusiastic to be reaching out to a wider audience after the success of our other online game titles,” said Howard Mark, Acclaim CEO. “Ponystars has a broad appeal and will help to establish Acclaim as a place for gamers of all ages and genders.”
Ponystars are noble & innocent magic ponies who inhabit the Grasslands of Fairy Valley. Players receive their first magic pony when they register to play. Players name and customize each of their Ponystars to reflect his or her unique sense of style and may enter their stock in contests. Six different breeds of magic Ponystars earn in-game Fairy Gold as players care for and train their herd. Players can build their herd by breeding and raising adorable baby Ponystars, or by buying and selling their Ponystars.
As with other Acclaim titles, players can also purchase items and additional in-game currency using Acclaim Coins. Once a Ponystar reaches maturity after 10 days, players can apply Special Traits to their stock and begin to breed their herd to make more baby Ponystars.
As players build their herd, they can buy and sell animals, create on-line Stables for their friends, complete Adventure Quests, compete in tournaments and customize the appearance of their Ponystars. Special Traits include fun brand marks, fantastic coats, manes, and decorative hooves, as well as seasonal accessories and backgrounds. Exciting new traits will be added to the game on an on-going basis.
New players can sign up and claim their free magic Ponystars now at www.ponystars.com. A Ponystar Adventure awaits you!
