Flower Power!

For Immediate Release:

August 3rd 2007. Joyboost announces release of Orchidia, a magical flower matching adventure for windows XP, 200&Vista PC.

Orchidia’s magic is being destroyed by evil wizard Orchus, who has created 60 blockages in the river. Orchus is being held captive by the river's magic. If he can destroy the magic then he will escape. To save the kingdom, you must stop Orchus by matching flowers and winning charms to unblock the river and restore the magic of Orchidia.

Like all of Joyboost's games, everything about Orchidia is simple and focused on the fun.

“Orchidia is an unashamedly girlie game,” says Joyboost's Linda MacKellar.“It combines simple, immediate gameplay that everyone from grannies to gamers will instantly understand and we've kept the whole feel of the game quite feminine. We’ve gone all out to make this a rewarding and relaxing game. The story and characters are amusing, and the special effects are more special than usual. Even Orchidia's music and sounds were specially created for the game by the sound experts Somatone.”

Orchidia costs just£11.95/$19.95 on www.joyboost.com. However, by signing up to the Joyboost website, visitors get an incredible, automatic 60% OFF Orchidia's normal price. You can download the game for free and try it before you buy, or simply play the free version in your web browser.
