     The player's mission in the "South Park" "Imaginationland" mobile game
 is to take on Butters' massive job to rescue the world in three arenas
 (Happy Imaginationland, Evil Imaginationland and The Battle for
 Imaginationland). The quest begins with the Mayor teaching the player how
 to bounce high by using his imagination. The player must utilize his
 bouncing skills to collect items and accomplish missions inside an allotted
 time limit. As the player accomplishes more missions, Butters gains extra
 imagination power to restore Imaginationland from the grasp of evil. "South
 Park" "Imaginationland" mobile game has more than 60 mind-blowing levels.
 
     This is the second "South Park" mobile game made in cooperation with
 RealArcade Mobile, which publishes casual game hits from the PC onto mobile
 handsets and portable devices. RealArcade Mobile has created more than 40
 mobile games supporting more than 800 handsets for wireless carriers around
 the world.
 
     The doors of a whole new dimension are thrown open and the boys of
 South Park walk right in. It all begins with Cartman's quest to find a
 leprechaun and in turn, win a bet with Kyle that would force him to suck
 Cartman's balls. The kids have just arrived in Imaginationland, a wondrous,
 magical place, when terrorists attack, unleashing all of mankind's evil
 imaginary forces upon the world. With imaginations running wild, the
 government steps in and prepares to nuke Imaginationland thus eliminating
 further attacks on the country's most vulnerable spot. A crisis faces the
 nation and Stan and Butters remain trapped in Imaginationland. Kyle pleads
 with the Pentagon for his friends' lives and Cartman goes all the way to
 the Supreme Court to get justice for his dry balls.
 
     The "Imaginationland" trilogy was released by COMEDY CENTRAL Home
 Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment in March 2008. The special
 DVD release is uncensored and includes additional footage created
 exclusively for the DVD.
