HACKENSACK, N.J., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Slingo, Inc., the digital interactive entertainment company, and casual game publisher Funkitron, Inc. announce the release of the newest download game, Slingo Quest Egypt.
Slingo Quest Egypt is the latest adventure in the award-winning Slingo Quest game series that brings Slingo game fans hours of new Slingo fun and adventure. Players go on a quest while joining forces with the Slingo Cherubs and other new Slingo friends, like Ibis the Egyptian bird, who aid in the journey through Egypt to defeat the Devil and find the stolen Slingo board.
The latest Slingo Quest offers twists and turns and tests of speed, perception and wisdom to keep any Slingo fan on the edge of their seat. Expanding on powerups offered in previous Slingo download games, Slingo Quest Egypt features new powerups including the "Lucky" powerup to get more matches, "Adders" - that add extra points, "Shuffle" - that gives new numbers in the game board matrix when no matches are revealed in the reels, Stop Spin and Marbles. Plus there are new fun features including Picture Mode, Spreading Slingo, and mini-games like Memory games and Odd Man Out, along with 11 new awards for players to accomplish and collect, with specific star goals for each Slingo board challenge on each game level.
"With Slingo Quest Egypt, we set out on a quest ourselves to not only take Slingo to Egypt, but also to level up the Slingo Quest experience with even more game play and adventure and packed it with never-before-seen Slingo-riffic fun!" said Dave Walls, President of Funkitron, Inc.
According to Eric Lamendola, General Manager at Slingo, Inc., "Slingo has a long history of listening to our users and innovating in the casual game space. The choice of Egypt as the new quest location came directly from fan feedback and customer surveys, so we are very excited to bring to market a game that players told us they wanted."
The Slingo Quest line of games is set to continue beyond Egypt later this year with the next Slingo Quest set in the Amazon Jungle and then off to the underwater land of the lost Atlantis in the near future.
