Magic Orbz Welcomes You To The Jungle This Week

First we got the Halloween expansion, then the Winter Pack and now, we're gonna go bounce around the jungle.

Today, TikGames and Creat Studios has announced the new Jungle Theme Add-On Pack for their addictive, exotic little brick-breaker now known as Magic Orbz. It'll be available this Thursday, April 15 in North America and on the following Thursday (April 22) in Europe. Like past packs, it'll cost only $2.99/€2.99 and once again, we'll have to work our way through 24 increasingly challenging levels. TikGames Founder and CEO Anatoly Tikham says they're "proud to continue our commitment and support of downloadable content." If you're not quite familiar, Magic Orbz - originally launched as Magic Ball - sends out a ball and breaks down most anything in its path; your goal is to keep it in play and not let it get by you. It sounds simple and it is, but it's also great fun. The Jungle Add-On brings us a new set of levels featuring "wild animals, tribal villages, dense foliage and ancient ruins." Said Vladimir Starzhevsky, co-founder and CEO of Creat Studios:

"Magic Orbz’s original title and three add-on packs deliver countless levels for both single and multiplayer gameplay. We look forward to introducing the fun-filled and addictive gameplay to new players, as well."

You should've given it a try by now and if not, we do recommend it. Sometimes, you just need to kick back with something purely simple and entertaining; at the very least, it offers a nice contrast to the big-budget, hardcore titles.

Dear Creat Studios, please patch Mushroom Wars to deliver the 4 player local multiplayer that you promised in the advertising of this game. Before adding to other games, please provide customers of your products what they thought they were originally supposed to get with their purchase. Thank you.

Can you play it online with others? I'm thinking about getting the game but I was hoping to play with others.

LV, there is a LOCAL multiplayer. It would be great to have online multiplayer, and the game would be perfect for that, but at this time, that is not an option, and I don't know if it is on their roadmap to happen.

As far as the multiplayer as it currently exists, it is only a 2 player game. In single player, you can battle up to 3 computer armies at once.

In the demo of the game, you can tell that it was designed for 4 player multiplayer, as you can see all 4 players army movement arrows on the screen at once.

With all that said, being that it is only $5.00 currently, it is a no brainer purchase IMO.

There are rumors that Creat is still going to fix the 4 player multiplayer.

REVISE - I stated "In the demo of the game, you can tell that it was designed for 4 player multiplayer, as you can see all 4 players army movement arrows on the screen at once."

I should have stated, "In the TRAILER of the game, ....."

That would be enjoyable. I can't get any good competition from my wife, son, or friends. I have played that game too many hours. Probably could have played through FF13 twice. ;). I have to let them win on occasion, or else they don't want to play with me anymore.

Is there a demo of this game somewhere?

EDITED: Never mind, just watched a few clips of it on YouTube.

Looks like fun for when you've only got a short hour or so to play something.

I prefer games like this on my cellphone or handheld.

I really wish Q-Games would release another expansion or sequel to PJ Monsters. It's my favorite PSN game but I've already played all the levels numerous times.
