E3-NEWS: Total Retrorama - Bit Boy!! revealed for WiiWare

Vienna, Austria– Monday, June 1st

Bplus, independent software developer, creator of Niki– Rock 'n' Ball, PLÄTTCHEN– twist 'n' paint and Vektor Tank, today officially announces Bit Boy!!, a brand-new title for WiiWare™, the downloadable game service for Wii™.

Bit Boy!!, is a totally new kind of game mix in which one-pixel-hero Kubi rushes through the whole history of videogames in order to save his pixel pals.

Players accompany Kubi in this totally crazy-pixellated retro journey and battle hordes of nasty monsters in

4-bit dungeons,

8-bit caves,

16-bit strongholds,

32-bit mazes,

64-bit arenas and

128-bit worlds.

Bernd Geiblinger, Art Director of Bplus, says:

"Everyone knows that Bplus really is a crazy company. We lifted up a gearwheel to the top of evolution and let it fight against evil Plättchen 6 billion years in the future. We transformed a boy into a ball, only to let him become a rock to stand up against metal crabs and flying trees.

With Bit Boy!!, we created a fantastic new arcade adventure that is delivered together with all its never-before-seen prequels from the different videogame eras. From ages 14 to 40, each Bit Generation will spark true retro feelings in all players when they set off in the ultimate pursuit of fruits and highscores."

Players can grab a pal for even more fun in the cooperative mode.

The Wii Remote is your joystick– the arcade adventure begins.
