London, UK– 28 July 2008 - Empire Interactive, a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings (NASDAQ: SSTR), has today release more information about its forthcoming Nintendo DS™ title Unsolved Crimes. A new type of game for the Nintendo DS, Unsolved Crimes is an absorbing, enthralling, character driven adventure video game experience which integrates the thrills of an action game with the mental challenges of a 3D crime investigation.
You're a rookie detective - part of the Homicide Division. An aspiring model, Betsy Blake has disappeared. A loner is the prime suspect. But this case is a whole lot deeper than it first appears… Crime is rampant in this city, and the disappearance of Betsy Blake is the latest in unnerving series of events that are slowly bringing New York City to its knees. Can you crack the cases the regular cops can't? And can you get to the bottom of the kidnapping that's all over the news? It's up to you to disentangle the truth from lies, and try to save Betsy before it's too late.
Unsolved Crimes integrates three gaming elements, an action game, a 3D crime investigation and a crime quiz to give players a uniquely absorbing experience. The game fully utilizes the Nintendo DS' unique two screens allowing players to immerse themselves in the environments of New York. The innovative use of the Nintendo DS stylus will also allow you to trace marks, routes and memos on suspicious items discovered at crime scenes, all allowing you to move closer to solving the kidnapping mystery.
