For immediate release
August 2009– The eagerly-awaited follow-up to the UK’s best-selling hidden object game* is now on UK retail shelves and Amazing Adventures Around The World looks set to take the world by storm.
Focus Multimedia partnered with PopCap Games, the leading developer and publisher of broadly appealing video games, to bring the popular downloadable game to retail in the UK and Ireland for the first time.
As an adventurer in Amazing Adventures Around The World, you’ve been hired to track down pieces of an ancient stone tablet. When pieced together the tablet reveals the location of the most expensive gem ever known– the World Diamond.
Travel to 25 exotic locations including the Statue of Liberty, Petra, Hawaii, Serengeti, Macchu Picchu and the Arctic. There you’ll hunt against the clock for over 2,100 cleverly concealed items across 100 levels. As an extra incentive, locate two gems on each level and at the end of the game you’ll unlock exciting new modes of play.
The funtastic mini-games nestled between hidden object hunts give your eyes a break– but not your brain! Play Spot the Difference, Word Search and many more in order to continue with your quest.
If you fancy a more sedate pace, play in Relaxed Mode and take all the time you need. You can even switch on Unlimited Hints– meaning you won’t have to wait for the hint meter to recharge before using another one.
• Seek and find over 2,100 objects in 25 tough missions
• Play 8 unique mini-games, designed to test your brain as well as your eyes
• Add interesting facts in your journal as you travel the globe
