EDISON, N.J., October 29, 2009 - Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL) today launched the website and released the first gameplay trailer for the upcoming Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ adventure title - The Daring Game for Girls. Based on The Daring Book for Girls, the best selling book published by the William Morrow imprint of HarperCollins, the interactive game lets players explore three distinct environments, learn fun facts about famous women in history and test their entrepreneurial spirit while acquiring new lifelong skills. Designed specifically for girls and fans of the book, the game allows them to try courageous and challenging activities on their way to becoming a true Daring Girl!
In The Daring Game for Girls, players have the power to choose their own destiny while exploring new endeavors like gardening, playing sports, creating crafts, and managing a corner stand. While advancing through the game, they'll need to acquire Essential Gear and earn enough Daring Girl Badges to achieve one of three ultimate goals: rafting down the Amazon, climbing Mt. McKinley or embarking on an African Safari. Main adventure and mini-game modes also give players the chance to participate in activities like freeze tag, double dutch, basketball, spy games, cave exploration and more. Additionally, they also have the option to play as one of many characters with a wide range of ethnicities and features, and make in-game friends by giving out items like friendship bracelets and flowers.
