Launch Signifies Majesco’s First Internally Developed Free-to-Play Game
Edison, NJ– Sept. 6, 2012– Mini Putt Park , one of the world’s first miniature golf simulation and construction games launches today on Zynga.com and Facebook Platform. Developed and published by Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of games for the mass market, Mini Putt Park gives players complete control over their very own mini-golf park, letting them build the course of their dreams and play against friends from around the world.
As a result of Majesco’s recently-formed publishing agreement with Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA), the world's leading provider of social game services, Mini Putt Park is available to play at www.zynga.com. It’s also available on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MiniPuttPark.
“With social gaming on the rise, we wanted to showcase Mini Putt Park, our first internally-developed Facebook game, while utilizing Zynga’s cutting-edge experience and massive built-in audience to reach fans in the most effective way,” said Jeffrey Anderson, senior vice president of social and mobile games, Majesco Entertainment.“We leveraged our wide experience to create a unique title that combines a simple golf game with the endless action of user-generated content. Whether you’re playing on Putter Island or against your friends, you’re going to face a creative and fun challenge in Mini Putt Park.”
“Our mission at Zynga has always been to connect the world through games,” said Rob Dyer, vice president of partner publishing, Zynga.“We want to bring players more ways to connect with their friends and family through the best, most fun and most social games, whether built by Zynga or by our partners, like Majesco. This partnership gives Majesco’s Mini Putt Park access to Zynga’s growing network of players.”
Mini Putt Park offers something for everyone with deep customization options for creating mini-golf courses, including traps, buildings and decorations, as well as pre-designed courses with more than 18 challenging boss battles in an engaging story mode. Players can earn experience points, prizes and coins on each course, whether going head-to-head against friends, or playing through on their own. Coins and cash can be used to upgrade players’ individual miniature golf course– with crazy traps, including a corn maze and a windmill, food carts to feed the hungry masses and even a Ferris Wheel for added fun– which also earns them experience and coins, based on how often their friends come to their miniature golf course to play.
