'FREAKOUT' PUBLISHED ON MSN ZONE AND REALONEARCADE
The third title in Smilie's ongoing development for FreshGames LLC
has been published on Microsoft's MSN Zone games channel and RealNetwork's
RealOneArcade. 'Freakout' is an arcade puzzle game, developed concurrently
in two platform versions, Java online and Win32 e-tail installable.
The game is essentially a re-working of old school arcade puzzle
favourites Qix and Jezzball. The game starts very simply and easily
to engage players but quickly becomes a tempestuous maelstrom of flying
and bouncing balls and bombs. The game requires skill and clever strategy
in order to becaome a Freakout master!
As with the previous games, the two versions of Freakout were undertaken
concurrently over approximately four months of design and development.
Freakout is going live over the next 4-6 weeks on MSN Zone, YahooGames
and RealArcade and many other high traffic games sites.
