Bigpoint Corrals Casual Gamers with Ponyrama

·         Engaging equestrian experience provides endless entertainment

·         Ponyrama follows Bigpoint’s breakout casual hits Farmerama and Zoomumba

Hamburg, November 5, 2010– Beginning next month, pony lovers’ dreams come true with the launch of Bigpoint’s new browser game, Ponyrama ( http://www.bigpoint.com/ponyrama). Developed with an original and lighthearted art style, Ponyrama players set out build the most prestigious and successful stable. Casual gaming fans can customize and care for their own ponies, build-up their own stables, and compete in traditional equestrian contests to become the best stable manager on the Internet.

Your pony is only a click away

In Bigpoint’s first two casual games, Farmerama and ZooMumba, players create and look after their own farms and zoos. In Ponyrama, players are challenged to build and manage their own stable of ponies. To begin the game, players choose their very own pony from a wide selection and begin raising it. They then expand their stables by adding stalls, paddocks, and dozens of decorations.

Show off your stable through friendly competitions

Throughout the game, players can compete against other players in friendly, western-style competitions, such as racing, jumping, and dressage. But riders must be careful when competing for prizes as horses may become tired or even injured. If needed, players can call the local veterinarian to look after their pampered equines in their very own veterinary facilities.

Bigpoint’s Ponyrama will be available online in early December 2010 and is free to play in all browsers, including Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. No download, installation
