July 13, 2009: Cerebral Vortex Games Inc., a St. Catharines based multi-platform developer of casual games, will be showcasing a diverse line-up of games at Casual Connect Seattle next week. The line-up includes addictive titles for iPhone, PC downloadable and Web.

"Cerebral Vortex Games has a great line-up for fall 2009," said Keith Makse, President of Cerebral Vortex Games, Inc. "Whether you want to solve crimes, give your brain a workout or battle ghosts, we've got you covered."

The line-up includes live playable demos of:

Ghost Breaker (iPhone): Battle murderous phantoms using your iPhone camera, powered by a mystical artifact that drains spectres of their essence. The spookiest part is not the ghosts, but the fact that you battle them in your own home, literally!

Trace Evidence: The Hunt for the Black Orchid (PC downloadable): Detective work and forensic science meet in a match 3 game! The Black Orchid is a master criminal who swears nobodywill ever catch him. Match the tiles to compare DNA, check for bomb residue, detect fingerprints and more. Every clue will bring you closer to arresting the Black Orchid!

Sonus (iPhone): The classic memory and rhythm game gets a high-tech makeover! Four modes and up to 10 buttons will give your brain and ears a challenge they'll never forget!

Word Burst (iPhone): The hit web word game comes to your iPhone! 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!

Mysterious Worlds: The Secret of Oak Island (PC downloadble): A hidden object game based on the real-life mystery of Oak Island, Nova Scotia, players are challenged to search museums, mineshafts and a mysterious island for items and clues. Assemble pirate maps. Decode ancient tablets. Solve fiendish puzzles. Each clue brings you closer to the fabled treasure of Oak Island!

"We're actively seeking partners to distribute our games," said Makse. "We encourage everyone who loves games to drop by booth B10 to see what we've got."

Casual Connect Seattle takes places from July 21 to July 23 at Benaroya Hall in Seattle. For more information, please visit seattle.casualconnect.org.
