Kansas City, MO May 28, 2008 -- uclick, a leader in casual games for PC, mobile and online, has just released two new casual game titles: The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes and Ice Cream Dee Lites under its uclickGames label. Both games are now exclusively available on Big Fish Games (http://www.bigfishgames.com).
Ice Cream Dee-Lites and The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes Now Available!
The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes, developed by Legacy Interactive and published online by uclick, is a classic Hidden Object game in which the player is transported to the dark streets of early 20th century London as Sherlock Holmes, following hundreds of potentially relevant clues in 16 cases of forgery, espionage, theft, murder and more. Joining the famed sleuth is his dedicated team comprised of Watson, Mycroft and Inspector Lestrade. Amateur sleuths can refine their detection skills in timed or untimed playing modes.
"Our customers are the best barometer for measuring the success of a game," said Nate Webb, Director, Partner Relations at Big Fish Games. "Since its release, The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes has consistently ranked in the top five downloads on our site and has become an instant hit with our customers."
"We are very excited to launch two major titles on Big Fish Games in the same week," said Derek Nolen, Director of Game and Product Development at uclick. "Both of these exciting games offer challenging game play with broad appeal in two of the hottest game genres."
A perfect fit for the upcoming summer season, Ice Cream Dee-Lites, developed by Cerebral Vortex, offers a different experience as players assist the main character, Dee in her quest to become her town's Queen of Ice Cream. Dee must serve her signature frozen treats to a variety of quirky customers as quickly as possible to earn cash, upgrade her store and work her way to the top of the frozen dessert business. Some of the key features of this fast-paced click management game include more than 60 missions across four distinct ice cream stores, many upgrade options and an eccentric cast of 16 crazy characters including the handy-capable Royce Rolls and ChocoTron, the giant chocolate-craving robot.
"Ice Cream Dee-Lites is a stand-out game in the click management genre," said Nolen. "Gamers of all ages are going to eat it up."
Both The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes and Ice Cream Dee-Lites are also available for download or purchase at www.uclickgames.com. The games will be available in retail boxed versions for the PC and in wide release on the Web after June 5th.
