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 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.

Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment in March 2008. The special
DVD release is uncensored and includes additional footage created
