POLAR PANIC– SET TO FREEZE OUT THE COMPETITION

9th December 2009

Cold off the press, Polar Panic, the new arcade puzzle game is soon to be released on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation®Network for PS3. Spanning 50 icy story levels join Polar in his fight against Mr Big, with 50 puzzle levels to set your brain into a spin and both single and multiplayer survival modes, this is a game perfect to play during the long, cold winter nights.

Can you guide Polar to victory against the Trappers, across the frozen wastes, through the night forests, rolling on the high seas, on the back of ice-trucks to the final oil rig showdown? Learn to build ice-bridges, destroy the enemy generators, find hidden pickups and free captured bears. With clubs, guns, fire, ice and dynamite, each Trapper has his own strengths - together they make a fearsome foe. Scoring an 'A' rating on the hardest setting will be a challenge for even the best of players.

“This is a really exciting time for us and Polar Panic shows what the indie development community is capable of. Polar Panic combines classic casual gameplay with the audio-visual experience you expect of modern consoles and PCs. Polar Panic features a multitude of gameplay fun; classic arcade action, fiendish puzzles and the most frantic local multiplayer mode you have ever seen!” commented Graeme Monk, Managing Director of Eiconic Games Ltd.
