Raise the stakes with Left Field Productions’ Battle Poker for WiiWare

Ventura, Calif., July 20, 2009– Left Field Productions, Inc., a leading developer of family oriented video games, announced today that Battle Poker has been released for digital download on WiiWare.

Battle Poker for WiiWare™ is a family friendly card game with up to four players battling against the clock to make the best five-card hand possible. Battles are played across multiple rounds with points scored for each round based on the quality of the hand. Each player uses a Wii Remote to point and click on a standard deck of cards laid across the screen. The first click flips the card over at which point it can be grabbed by anyone else. You've got to have fast fingers and eyes if you're to grab the cards you need before someone else snatches them from you.

“We’re thrilled to be participating in this brave new world of Digital Publishing” said James Higgins, CEO at Left Field Productions.“We’ve got some exciting plans for future products on WiiWare and Battle Poker is just the tip of the iceberg.”

FEATURES

- Five Battle Poker play modes.

- Battle with up to four players in three play modes.

- Battle AI through unlimited Battle Poker Boards.

- Select from eight different themes.

Battle Poker has been Rated E for everyone by the ESRB.
