BLITZ ARCADE’S ENCLEVERMENT EXPERIMENT™ RELEASED TODAY

LEAMINGTON SPA, UK– NOVEMBER 11, 2009– Blitz Arcade today released their Xbox™ LIVE® Arcade game Encleverment Experiment™, a clever game for clever gamers.

Encleverment Experiment, an Avatar™-supported original title for 1-4 players, takes place in the funky laboratory of eccentric Professor Ivor Question. The game is a fun and frenetic“battle of wits” where players test their memory, reflexes, and dexterity by responding to rapid-fire questions with multiple possible answers. The game’s questions range from easy (for gamers starting age five) to difficult (for adults), making Encleverment Experiment a great game for children, teens, and adults playing alone or in groups. It’s also an ideal game for families to play together. Response time and accuracy are rewarded with Noodles, the in-game currency. The game’s challenge is to accumulate Noodles, but being faster and cleverer than your friends and family are fun challenges too!

Game Show Mode lets 1-4 gamers play a randomly generated, 6-round quiz, or they can design their own“Home-made Games” which can be up to 30 rounds long. The last round is always the“Score Stealer Game” where the first person to answer correctly steals points from the fellow contestant of choice.

Winners are rewarded with Noodles which are used to purchase up to 60 collectible Mascots to show off their gaming prowess.
