ST. CATHARINES, ON - August 18, 2008 - Cerebral Vortex Games Inc., a St. Catharines, Ontario-based developer of casual videogames, is excited to announce the release of their web-based game Word Burst.

The fast-paced word game is now playable exclusively through TELETOON.COM, completely free of charge.

In Word Burst, players are presented with a grid full of random letters while a timer ticks down. Players spell words by rapidly clicking on letters. Creating a word and making it "burst" will award you points and more time-the longer the word, the better!
