Buka Entertainment announces Sledgehammer

MOSCOW, August 3, 2007 - Buka Entertainment and Targem Games are pleased to announce Sledgehammer, new Action / Racing game for PC.

The American highways are more dangerous than ever… it doesn’t matter if you drive a car, a bike or a truck, the chances of being shot, smashed, nailed and/or crushed are of 9 out of 10. Consequently, only the craziest or those with enough weapons dare to hit the road.

Sledgehammer is a pure action game on wheels, and a festival of demolition and speed, all in one. Drive the most powerful truck and destroy every opponent that you’ll find on the road or go to the multiplayer mode and decide who is the king of the highway, among your friends.

Key Game Features:

    <*>Hours of gameplay in the main campaign and 6 minigames in the single player mode. <*>Multiplayer for up to 8 players simultaneously in cooperative and deathmatch mode. Destroy huge trucks joining forces with your friends or become the best truck driver in a fight to death. <*>Upgrade your truck using the money you get from successful deals. Melee, light and heavy weapon, armor, nitro… make you truck an unstoppable machine of destruction.
