Glasgow, UK, December 14th, 2007. Casual game experts Joyboost.com have come up with a perfect antidote to the huge number of hours shoppers are spending online this Christmas searching for gifts.
Joyboost has created a little online island of calm in the mad Internet shopping frenzy of Christmas 2007. Visitors to the Joyboost.com site can relax, play and rediscover the joys of the festive season.
Joyboost has created a new Christmas-themed online version of its critically acclaimed game Orchidia, plus an entirely new title called Where's Rudolph. Both games are completely FREE and are played through the normal web browser on most home computers.
The games are perfects for parents, cool for kids and even great for grandparents. In Christmas Orchidia, players must make groups of Christmas presents as they drift down a chill winter river.
Where's Rudolph challenges players to find Santa's most famous reindeer in the middle of a huge Christmas crowd. A sharp-eye and a fastfinger on the mouse is needed to make sure Christmas Eve deliveries can be made.
“More and more people are using the Internet for Christmas shopping,” says Joyboost's Linda MacKellar.“I do all my Christmas shopping online as the shops are crazy this time of year. But in some ways it can be just as exhausting to shop on your PC. So to cheer up all those struggling shoppers, we've created a couple of free games that the whole family can play. Anyone who's online this Christmas, come and put your feet up at Joyboost and try Christmas Orchidia and Where's Rudolph– our gifts to all of you.”
