Brisbane– Australia - June 3, 2008– Wildfire Studios today announced the launch of Tumblebugs 2, the long awaited and highly anticipated sequel to Tumblebugs. Tumblebugs was one of the best selling casual titles online in 2005 and has had over 25 million downloads since its release.
The game follows the adventures of our hero, Tumble, as she battles her way through backyard USA to set her beetle buddies free before they fall into the depths of the black bug lair.
In Tumblebugs 2, the black bugs are back and they’re meaner, faster and nastier! Once again it's Tumble to the rescue...
Darren Baker, CEO of Wildfire Studios says,“Tumblebugs 2 offers the same, wonderfully addictive gameplay that made Tumblebugs such as huge success, but the game also takes everything to the next level. My team has once again created a stunning title with exceptional art, beautiful special effects and immersive audio…not to mention tremendous fun.”
Tumblebugs 2 introduces fun new features including animal helpers which assist Tumble on her mission, exciting new powerups, three different game modes including the all-new one hour rescue mode, new bonus and gold ring challenges and two levels of difficulty. The player will journey through 30 stunning, all-new backyard locations spanning 90 levels offering hours and hours of addictive, bug-popping fun!
