BRISTOL, U.K., March 10, 2008– The multi-tasking mayhem ensues, as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, and Gogii Games today announced Babysitting Mania for Nintendo DS™. Based on the hit PC simulation, Babysitting Mania challenges players to manage unruly kids, lists of chores and out-of-control houses without losing their cool. The game is also the sequel to the smash success Nanny Mania that has been downloaded more than 7 million times.
“Balancing a busy household with energetic kids of multiple ages is incredibly demanding,” said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations, Majesco.“ Babysitting Mania brings the challenge‘home’ so players can develop their ability to multi-task and maintain order despite the rigors of running a modern family.”
In Babysitting Mania, players progress through more than 100 levels of fast-paced, overlapping tasks as they feed, entertain and clean up after a slew of kids in 20 chaotic houses. Players will use the Touch Screen to manage every aspect of the household with speed and precision, from strategically employing“Timeouts” to overseeing bonus birthday party levels that add neighbourhood party guests to the mania. Players must also care for children in various stages of their lives--from babies to toddlers to teens. Only the ultimate babysitter will survive the frenzy!
