NEW YORK&LONDON - November 11, 2009 - I-play, Oberon Media's publishing division and the world's leading multi-platform casual games publisher, today announced Treasures of the Serengeti is now available for PC download. Bringing players on a unique musical quest through the beautiful African grasslands, Treasures of the Serengeti combines innovative Match-3 gameplay with a touch of jigsaw puzzle complexity, delivering a wild twist to the beloved Match-3 genre.
In Treasures of the Serengeti, players collect precious gems to rebuild a once-thriving African village that has been deserted and destroyed by the curse of the Spirits. To lift the spell, you must find the lost musical relics to bring back the elevating rhythms of the Serengeti. The adventurers will achieve their goal by connecting and matching jigsaw-style puzzle pieces in more than 80 gem-packed levels. Each level features breathtaking African landscapes and vibrant music, where players must complete interactive musical mini-games, locate sacredinstruments and restore 26 village structures within the Serengeti.
"Both Match-3 and jigsaw gameplay styles have proven to be favorites among casual gamers," said Don Ryan, chief operating officer at Oberon Media. "Combining both styles, along with the infusion of rhythmic music mini-games, makes this a delightful and addicting new IP that will bring players an entirely fresh, original gaming experience we know they'll enjoy."
Treasures of the Serengeti is now available for PC download here for $19.95.
