The Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas computer game has shipped to retail stores nationwide, Atari, Inc. announced today. Based on the animated film from DreamWorks Pictures, the PC game combines the epic adventure of the movie with the latest PC technology - the Intel Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology - to deliver a state-of-the-art game experience.

Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas is a PC action adventure game that allows players to take on the role of the title character - the most daring and notorious rogue to sail the seven seas. The game follows the storyline from the film and features non-stop action, engaging gameplay and state-of-the-art visual effects enhanced by the power of the Intel Pentium® 4 processor with HT Technology. An intuitive control system also enables players to perform exhilarating and acrobatic moves and use interactive environment features to defeat Sinbad's enemies.

"The Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas game really extends the movie experience by allowing players to bring the action of the movie home with them," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Atari's Beverly studio. "We are pleased to have collaborated with DreamWorks and Intel on this project and that it is available in time for the holidays and the upcoming DVD launch."

As Sinbad, players journey on an epic adventure to retrieve the fabled Book of Peace and save the life of Sinbad's best friend, Proteus. Along the way, players will fight off hordes of supernatural enemies and go head-to-head with legendary mythic monsters. To aid them in their quest, cool power-ups are available like the ability to summon a mini-army of skeletons to fight by their side.

To ensure the game fully captured the excitement and adventure of the film, the Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas PC game was created in collaboration with one of the film's directors, Patrick Gilmore. Gilmore made his directorial debut on "Sinbad" after a ten-year career in developing and producing video games. He worked closely with Atari and the development team at U.K.-based Small Rockets to faithfully translate the film into an interactive game.

The Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas game was designed to take full advantage of the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with HT Technology so that the stunning visuals of the film were translated to the PC experience. Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology allows the PC's processor to perform multiple complex tasks at the same time with greater responsiveness. If consumers play the game on a PC enabled with HT Technology, they will experience more detailed animation and more dynamic game environments that uniquely capture the beauty and adventure of the film. As an example, HT Technology will immerse players deeper into the world of Sinbad by letting them see things such as the wind effects on the flags of Sinbad's ship and the vibrancy of the deep sea waves as he embarks on his adventure.

Developed by Small Rockets, the Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas PC game is available at retail nationwide for a suggested retail price of $19.99. The ESRB has given this game a 'T' (Teen) rating.
