CINEMAWARE MARQUEE™ SHIPS Buccaneer's Bounty™ AND neighbors from hell®: On vacation FOR PC

From Pirates On The High Seas To Tropical Reality TV, These Titles Offer Outstanding Gameplay and Value

LANGHORNE, PA - March 28, 2006 - Cinemaware Marquee, an affiliated label of eGames, Inc. (OTCBB: EGAM), today announced two new titles, Buccaneer's Bounty and Neighbors from Hell: On Vacation, have shipped for the PC. From slapstick humor to pirate adventures, these internationally renowned games offer countless hours of entertainment for gamers.

"Buccaneer's Bounty and Neighbors From Hell: On Vacation showcase the evolution of the Cinemaware Marquee brand," said Lars Batista, Vice President of Product Development at eGames. "Both of these games offer offbeat, addictively fun gameplay for an amazing price, continuing our mission to over-deliver for gamers."

Buccaneer's Bounty consists of the three top-rated pirate-themed strategy games Port Royale 2TM, TortugaTM and Patrician IIITM. While each game is a standalone product, the combination of all three titles delivers more than 100 hours of compelling real time strategy play.

Port Royale 2 is an all-encompassing RTS trading adventure set in the 16th and 17th centuries, where players build their reputation and influence looting and trading. In Tortuga, players assume the role of a buccaneer in the service of his majesty the King or as a feared and loathsome pirate - either way the goal is to build mountains of riches! Patrician III features epic medieval city-building with the historical background of maritime trade in Northern Europe in the 1300s. All three titles were developed by Ascaron Entertainment.

Developed by JoWooD Productions Software AG, Neighbors From Hell: On Vacation is an innovative, laugh-out-loud "reality game" that incorporates fun puzzles and sharp graphics. Expanding on the original hit title, the game has 14 new tricky and visually detailed episodes that take place in 6 different locations, including a cruise ship, China, India, and Mexico. As a special added bonus, Neighbors From Hell: On Vacation includes all 14 episodes of the first Neighbors From Hell game.

Both titles are available now for $19.99.
