London, England– June 4, 2008 - Southpeak Games today announced that their newest puzzle sensation Roogoo is now available for download on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®. As the last remaining Roogoo, your mission is to collect meteors by rotating platforms in this extremely addictive, original, fast-paced puzzler.
"Everyone I have seen play Roogoo doesn't want to put it down," said Melanie Mroz, CEO of Southpeak Games. "Its colorful palette, simple control scheme and intense 3D puzzle gameplay make it one of those rare pick-up-and-play titles that anybody can play. It's tremendously fun and all the while conveys a compelling tale."
In the game, players must turn platforms in order to align falling blocks with the correct shapes. However, with every level you conquer comes a new set of obstacles even more treacherous than the last. New shapes will appear along with other challenges like evil Meemoos blocking platforms, shapes traveling up rather than down, and even more fun and exciting trials.
Developed by SpiderMonk Entertainment, Roogoo features five creative worlds, loaded with over 45 frenzied puzzles. Play four-player co-op in Party Play and finish levels jointly with friends, or compete against each other head to head over Xbox LIVE in Race mode. Race to correctly pair blocks and shapes to get combos while filling up your combo bar to attack your opponent's platforms with hungry Meemoos. Every mistake you make will add damage to your health bar; receive enough damage and your opponent will be victorious.
Roogoo has a free demo available now, and the full game can be purchased for 800 Microsoft points. For more visit www.southpeakgames.eu.
