RISING STAR GAMES DESCENDS TO DIG ITS OWN DUNGEONS

Luton– June 12th 2008 - Rising Star Games is pleased to announce the release of Dungeon Maker exclusively for the Nintendo DS. The title will be available for the first time to PAL territories from September 19th 2008 at a suggested retail price of£29.99.

Dungeon Maker offers the opportunity to create unique dungeons by giving the player total control over where they choose to place tunnels and chambers. Having created a maze, traps can then be set in order to entice monsters to enter. The more desirable the dungeons are, the more colourful monsters that can be attracted, resulting in catching rarer and larger beasts. Having lured a monster into the dungeon, defeating them and taking their treasures boost strength and gives access to new skills.

“For the first time on the Nintendo DS players get the opportunity to dictate where they want battles to take place,” says Yen Hau, product marketing assistant.“Have a room filled with ogres by placing a few bars in the room or wild boars by placing more feed barrels; it’s entirely up to them.”

Key Features:

• Design your own battleground

• Choose where distinct monsters spawn

• Set traps and attract rare beasts

• Kill monsters in order to create recipes with their meat

• Gain strength from recipes derived from fallen foes

• Different meals have different effects on your strength
