O~3 Entertainment Launches New Age of Block Puzzlers in US for PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable) System with Puzzle Scape

Immersive, addictive, entrancing, radically distinctive... Welcome to the next level of puzzle games. Welcome to the captivating world of Puzzle Scape.

Santa Clara, CA - November 8th, 2006 - O~3 Entertainment, an interactive entertainment publishing and distribution company, today announced that "Puzzle Scape," a new action block busting game for the PSP system, is scheduled to launch

next month for the US market. "Puzzle Scape" brings the puzzle game genre into a new age with appealing 3D visuals combined with addictive and fast-paced fun. "Puzzle Scape" is casual yet hard to put down and utilizes the power and visual performance of the PSP system.

Players arrange blocks of different colors into chains that are exploded by 2x2 same colored blocks. Eliminating the blocks creates level-ups and the player can gather a variety of power-ups by creating long chains. Level-ups introduce new elements into visually amazing background landscapes.

Game mode defines the rules of the game. In architect mode, the player tries to build objectives as fast as possible, and in artist mode, the goal is to play for survival and high score. In artist mode, the scenery is built according to how gamers play "Puzzle Scape," while the architect mode has pre-defined objectives.

There are four different themes: cells, flowers, machines and dreams. Both single player-modes can be played in cooperation or in Duel mode over wireless connection. "Puzzle Scape" also features up to eight -player multiplayer fun in Bomb Run mode,

where each player plays the same scene trying to be the first to destroy enough blocks to win the game. In addition, "Puzzle Scape" enables players to send the demo of the game to a friend.

"Puzzle Scape" has been developed by Farmind Ltd, a console game developer, utilizing 3D technology developed by Pixelgene Ltd. The game will be later available for Japan and Europe.
