"The Golden Path of Plumeboom"– Match-3 meets Arkanoid for whirling gameplay fun!

Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 26 September 2007– Leading video game developer and publisher, Fireglow Games TM , best known for its Sudden Strike® series, has set up a unique gameplay experience with "The Golden Path of Plumeboom". The game, developed by Fireglow Casual Studios, combines the proven match-3 gameplay with arkanoidesque controls to forge an irresistible puzzle-game that immediately grips players, entrancing them for countless hours.

Plumeboom the Peacock of Orniland found an ancient map of treasures kept in caves stored behind 77 locks and, of course, it's the players' task to help Plumeboom open all the locks. Every single lock consists of a turning magnetic shape that attracts balls of different colours. By shooting balls at the shape, players can use diverse tactics to correctly position their globes thanks to the advanced physics system in the game. If three balls of the same colour are aligned, they will burst. The more aligned globes burst in one blow, the higher the score. The lock is opened when there are no globes left.

"Our testing has shown that the game is very intuitive and the learning curve short. It onlytakes two minutes to get the hang of The Golden Path of Plumeboom.", says Victor Vinokurov, CEO of Publisher Fireglow GamesTM. "Compared to other games with predetermined trajectories, the physics simulation in "The Golden Path of Plumeboom" boosts motivation to try and find other ways to position the globes."
