EDISON, N.J., March 11, 2009 - Master those difficult life decisions in the palm of your hand as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL) today released the first screenshots for KarmaStar, a new light-hearted strategy game for the iPhone™ and iPod® touch. Marking Majesco's first foray into the iPhone game category, KarmaStar offers visually stunning graphics and addicting gameplay that will keep players hooked. Developed by Arkane Studios, who is led by acclaimed game designer Harvey Smith, the game features a quirky, signature style and the ability to battle with human/AI players over WiFi. KarmaStar makes its debut on iPhone at the end of March.
In KarmaStar, players must hone their life skills in five personal traits - including Health, Mind, People, Love, and Money. By taking small, calculated steps, players have the ability to build these traits, or live dangerously and see where a little deviousness can take them. Each game takes no more than 10 minutes, so players must waste no time in mapping out either a constructive or combative strategy and then pursuing their chosen path in order to achieve their life goals.
KarmaStar will be available through the iPhone App Store at the end of March. For additional information about Majesco's exciting line of products, please visit: www.majescoentertainment.com.
