EDISON, NJ, November 4, 2004 – Majesco (OTCBB: MJSH), a provider of diversified offerings and content for digital entertainment platforms, today announced it has shipped Ultra Bust-A-Move for the Xbox Ã‚Â® video game system from Microsoft. The bubble-bursting video game features five new puzzle types, hundreds of puzzles, full Xbox ™Live support and a suggested retail price of $19.99.
“With addictive game play at its core, Ultra-Bust-A-Move is the latest installment of a classic franchise with an established worldwide audience,” said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing for Majesco. “By combining online play via Xbox Live with an attractive $19.99 price, we believe Ultra-Bust-A-Move is a great addition to any Xbox owner’s library.”
In Ultra Bust-A-Move, players launch randomly colored balls from the bottom of the field in an attempt to attach them to bubbles of the same color. Once three bubbles of the same color are touching, they pop, causing all connected bubbles to drop. Players keep going until all the bubbles are gone.
With 12 different characters, each with their own strategies, Ultra Bust-A-Move offers hundreds of demanding game boards with colorful, graffiti-art graphics and five new challenging puzzle types including:
See-Saw Puzzle – bubbles fired will teeter the game board; don’t tip it over;
Blind Puzzle – players fire bubbles into a colorless field of bubbles revealing random patterns;
Count Puzzle – score-based puzzle where only ‘dropped’ bubbles count towards player score.
Additionally, Xbox Live features such as Friends List, Voice and Xbox Live Aware will be supported. Players can also compete to be the top player through Ultra Bust-A-Move’s Xbox Live Ranking system.
Developed by Taito, Ultra Bust-A-Move is currently available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $19.99
