Santa Clara, Calif., (January 17, 2007) - Leading video games publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. announced today that its newest brain teaser, QuickSpot, will be available for the Nintendo DS this Spring. A fast and challenging game of concentration, where the objective for the player is to spot the differences between two seemingly identical pictures and circle the differences on the touch screen, QuickSpot, is the ultimate game to test your brain on the go!
"QuickSpot offers hours of fun for those with quick minds and fast reflexes, as it takes a simple concept and turns it into an exciting and addicting brain game perfectly suited for gamers on the go." said Makoto Iwai, Executive Vice President and COO at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. "Everyone remembers playing this game as a kid, and now it's re-imagined as a simple and addictive video game that anyone can play. "
QuickSpot contains three challenging single player modes, the main mode being Rapid Play, which has five levels each containing 10 stages and a boss challenge at the end of each level. The player will be awarded medals for points they achieve based on their "Brain Activity". Brain Activity is based on Intuition, Concentration, Recognition, Stability, and Judgment. The higher the player scores in each area the more points they earn. Other exciting single player modes include Focus play, which contains 140 unique pictures with 10 differences for the player to spot, and Today's Fortune, which gives the player their Health, Study, Romance, and Money fortune for the day.
QuickSpot also includes three multiplayer modes including Time Bomb, which requires up to eight players to pass one Nintendo DS back and forth between turns, Scramble Mode, and Download Play in which players can compete against each other on multiple Nintendo DS systems.
