'Ecolis: Save the Forest' (NDS) Delayed in Europe

Deforestation, pollution, global warming and industrialization are just some of the many important themes in Rising Star Games's new NDS exclusive real-time strategy Ecolis: Save the Forest (known in Norht America as Eco Creatures: Save the Forest).

Eco Creatures is the only game of its kind that promotes awareness of environmental perils while tasking players with defending the Mana Woods against them.

Eco Creatures: Save the Forest is a real-time strategy game in which players use the Touch Screen to control units of woodland creatures--named Ecolis, Ecoby and Ecomon--that will protect the naturally beautiful Mana Woods and recover the polluted land. All creature types have unique skills that must be strategically managed. With proper nurturing, they can evolve to learn new abilities that help a player complete the game's more than 40 environmental missions. As players grow their woodland army, they must also plant new trees to prevent deforestation and revitalize the woodlands.

In addition, Eco Creatures includes a creative Land Make feature that lets players build and play their own maps. This eco-friendly RTS also supports two-player play via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and up to four players via single card download play or ad-hoc multi-card play.

Currently available in North America, Eco Creatures: Save the Forest is expected to launch in Europe on June 13, 2008
