EDISON, N.J., November 11, 2009 - Rev up your scooter and deliver big profits in Pizza Delivery Boy from Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market. This unique Wii™ action title lets players use the Wii Remote™ as an all-in-one kitchen utensil and driving wheel to cook and deliver pizzas to hungry customers in three bustling towns. Players must beware, though, as a number of obstacles stand between them and the coveted title of Pizza Boy of the Year!
"Pizza Delivery Boy combines made-to-order pizza preparation with fast and furious driving that delivers on fun," said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations for Majesco. "Wii owners can look forward to an addictive experience that mixes two proven gameplay mechanics into one unique entertainment product."
When three brothers mismanage their successful pizza restaurants and the businesses start to falter, the bank manager threatens to shut them down if they don't return to profitability. It's up to you, the new hire, to restore the ailing pizza parlors to their past magnificence. But the task won't be easy. Players earn money by making and delivering pizzas throughout three busy towns crawling with scoundrels and hazards like hungry dogsand oil slicks. Players can also unlock faster vehicles and earn extra cash on their days off by taking on various side missions, including street racing and cooking competitions. New hires who rake in the dough will rescue the family business and become a local hero!
Developed by Attractive Games LTD, Pizza Delivery Boy is expected to release Winter 2010 and is rated E for Everyone. For additional information about Majesco's exciting line of products, please visit www.majescoentertainment.com.
