January 6, 2010 – TikGames (San Mateo, CA) and Creat Studios (Canton, MA) today announced that their best-selling brick-breaker game Magic Ball will be renamed Magic Orbz. A patch will be available for download, along with a new Winter Theme Pack Add-On, on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system on Thursday, January 7th in Europe and January 14th in North America.
“TikGames and Creat Studios are thrilled to deliver even more fun-filled and addictive content for our Magic Orbz fans on PlayStation® Network,” said Anatoly Tikhman, Founder and CEO of TikGames, LLC “and we look forward to introducing the excitement to new players, as well.”
Magic Orbz takes a very simple idea – an orb, a paddle and a pile of bricks – and turns the player loose in dynamic and brightly colored 3D destructible environments filled with pirates, dragons, witches and more. TikGames’ and Creat Studios’ newest Winter Theme Add-On Pack introduces a wonderland of igloos, penguins, glaciers and polar bears to the exhilarating cartoon-style demolition.
“With our original title and two add-on packs, Magic Orbz delivers countless levels for both single and multiplayer gameplay.” said Vladimir Starzhevsky, co-founder and CEO of Creat Studios, Inc. “TikGames and Creat Studios are proud to continue our commitment and support of downloadable content.”
Magic Orbz will include PlayStation Trophy support and has been rated “E” for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board for this platform.
