Octomania is a new online multiplayer family-friendly game offering challenging puzzle gameplay, and a variety of different play modes, with a story of mischief and mayhem filled with zany characters.

The game is set in the land of Lonronpia, which has been over-run by thousands of octopi summoned accidentally by an apprentice magician. Players will be tasked with undoing this dark magic and ridding the land of hordes of invading octopi.

Using the intuitive Nintendo Wii control system players need to move octopi in colour coded sequences to unleash multiple combo chains and special attacks. Gameplay is fast and furious as you use brain and brawn to vanquish these colourful and zany octopi foes across emerging levels of difficulty.

Multiple game modes are available including story mode, arcade mode and ‘Endless’ mode, which test both speed and endurance as you work through Octomania’s myriad of challenging puzzles. Octomania can also be enjoyed by family, friends in Local Co-op, Versus modes and against players worldwide in online WFC multiplayer mode.

Head of Sales, Sam Collins said “The puzzle game genre is a hugely popular with a wide demographic, appealing to both hardcore and casual gamers. Octomania is one of the most addictive puzzle games in the genre and has already enjoyed huge success in the Japanese and American markets.
