FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Budapest, Hungary - Aug 9th, 2007 - Kampo Interactive today announces the release of Balance, a PC game that can not only be controlled by the mouse, but can also be played with a handheld motion sensor or by simply tilting a laptop. The game utilizes the upcoming ActionXL PC Motion Controller - a handheld USB motion sensing game controller - and the tilt sensors built into certain manufacturers' laptops like the Lenovo™ Thinkpad® series that sense when the machine is dropped to protect its hard disk.
Balance is reminiscent of the wooden board game Labyrinth where players steer a ball through a maze to a target. Simple to learn yet difficult to master, Balance, requires players to tilt a playfield to guide one or more balls simultaneously to multiple targets through increasingly difficult 3D obstacle courses. Players can post and share their times over the internet along with a recording that can be replayed by other players to see how they managed to do it.
The full version of Balance features over 75 levels with continuous level updates and will be widely available on major web portals via the distribution of Oberon Media.
Balance to Win, a trial tournament now closed has seen players competing for the best times on each level to win the game for FREE, which resulted in remarkable performances beside intense addictiveness. Further tournaments will be organized and announced later at www.balance-game.com with various prizes to win.
