Cirondo Online - are you up for it?
October 28th, 2004: Looking for a break from shoot-em-ups? Want to put your gaming skills to the ultimate test? Then check out the smash hit Cirondo, now available online at www.cirondogames.co.uk
Easy to learn, a lifetime to master, Cirondo is a strategically challenging game with the depth of chess but the simplicity of draughts or checkers that will keep players entertained online for hours.
Cirondo forces players to look 3 or 4 moves ahead in an addictive game of attack, defence and sacrifice. Boasting a powerful game engine and a compelling theme, battles for galactic domination are resolved in a unique spherical environment, with pieces advancing or defending in arcs and circular movements adding a new dimension to interactive gameplay.
The object of the game is to conquer the galaxy by eliminating your opponent from the board. Challenge players in two player battles in the games lounge or put your skills to the test against an opponent that is masterful and merciless, powerful and unforgiving.... the crushingly dominant online machine.
Regular competitions, promotions and prizes are designed to reward registered players who scale the dizzy heights of success by climbing the league table to the top. Registering for the Cirondo League is easy and is available until Christmas at a special price of only £9.99 for a full year's gameplay.
Cirondo received rave reviews when it debuted recently at the Essen Game Fair in Germany and at the Chicago International Toy and Game Fair (CHITAG) in September. It will be released in traditional board game format in the main European markets in time for Christmas and will be available at all the usual retail outlets at a recommended retail price of £29.95.
A junior version of Cirondo, a magnetic travel edition and a CD-ROM version of the game are all under development. Further information can be found on the CGCL website www.cgcl.co.uk
