UTV Ignition Games Releases New Screens for Fall Lineup

Marina Del Rey, Calif. - August 17, 2011 - UTV Ignition Games today released brand-new screens from four upcoming titles slated to launch this fall on several platforms.

Quarrel

A fresh and original take on the classic word game format, Quarrel combines gameplay elements similar to the likes of Scrabble, Jumble and Risk. Strategy is key to becoming the vocabulary victor in order to take over the opposition's territories and achieve world domination! In Quarrel, players control territories filled with various troops who they must use in battle to create high-scoring words out of an eight-letter anagram. The key to victory is simple. Whomever's word scores more points wins the battle and takes control of the land. The person who wins the most battles, achieves domination of the entire map and wins the game.

Platform/Pricing: iOS iPad/iPhone ($4.99)

Date: August

National Geographic Challenge!

National Geographic Challenge! allows players to explore our planet through its history and geography, providing a journey through the ages and an inside look at the extraordinary extent of mankind's achievements.  The game will include both single and multiplayer game modes as up to four players can compete in the quest to claim territories on the in-game globe by answering questions correctly while using various tactics to foil their opponents.

Platform: Wii ($19.99), PS3 ($39.99), Xbox 360 ($39.99)

Release date (US):  Fall

Mercury Hg

Mercury Hg expands on the addictive qualities of its predecessors, crafting 60 all-new deviously constructed levels filled with hazards and obstacles while adding improvements and polish to almost every aspect of the game. The 'Mercury Blob' is still as mesmerizing as ever, moving uniquely under player control, changing color in order to progress through the level and dividing if cut by a protruding surface. The PSN utilizes the unique SIXAXIS motion control to take the experience to an all new level.

Platform: XBLA, PSN

Price: $4.99

Release Date: September

Kung Fu High Impact

Kung Fu High Impact is the first of its kind for Kinect for Xbox 360--a side-scrolling brawler that uses the peripheral's incredibly accurate body tracking technology to insert the real image of the player on screen. The gamer will be literally transported into the action, as he or she will be able to see real-life combat movements interacting with the enemies and objects on screen.

Platform: Kinect

Release Date (US): November

Price: $39.99
