London, UK. New York, USA - April 22nd - I-play, Oberon Media's publishing division and the world's leading multi-platform casual games publisher, today announced the global launch of Paradise Quest for the PC. Available just in time for Earth Day, Paradise Quest brings gamers deep within the Galapagos archipelago where they will embark on a wild puzzle adventure to restore the majestic island of Isabela to its former beauty. Adding a revolutionary twist to the ever-popular Match-3 puzzle genre, all matches in Paradise Quest directly affect the player's navigation across the board and the outcome of the island.
In Paradise Quest players take on the role of renowned ecologist, Dr. Evan Finch, as they re-establish life in this once magnificent and flourishing retreat. To complete their mission, players must restore each region of the island and re-introduce wildlife to successfully revive the gorgeous surroundings of Isabela. As they gather resources, the camera will pan to reveal a new portion of the environment to be rescued.
In the midst of the amazing island transformation, players must photograph and document up to 75 unique Galapagos species and log the information in their journal to unlock valuable power-ups and resource upgrades. Moving smoothly across the board, players will collect over 350 habitat fragments to piece together scene depictions of six breathtaking regions of the island. Additionally, they will uncover buried artifacts that may lead to answers behind an ancient mystery and untold stories of a lost civilization. To solve the mystery of this island of intrigue, players must rely on the research of a professor of archeology who will help piece together all of the findings and follow their clues.
Paradise Quest is available now on the PC worldwide for $19.95.
