Got Game Entertainment Goes All In North American Retail with 'Arctic Stud Poker Run'



    
    Action-packed "full-contact poker" game brings decidedly irreverent
    reinvention of real-life cross-country "poker runs" to stores across the
    U.S. and Canada
    

    WESTON, Conn., March 6 /CNW/ -- Got Game Entertainment LLC today
announced that "Arctic Stud Poker Run", an arcade-style combat racing game for
the PC, has shipped to retail across North America. Developed by Game Refuge,
the veteran arcade team behind "Rampage World Tour" and "General Chaos",
"Arctic Stud Poker Run" is a decidedly irreverent, over-the-top reinvention of
real-life cross-country "poker runs" in which players race from place to place
picking up playing cards in an effort to assemble a winning hand. With its
revolutionary multi-player battle experience, this action-packed "full-contact
poker" game throws down high stakes, high speeds, and high explosives. "Arctic
Stud Poker Run" makes its retail debut at $19.99 (USD) and is also available
for immediate download purchase from www.ArcticStudPokerRun.com. The game is
rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB for Alcohol and Tobacco Reference, Comic
Mischief, and Mild Violence.

    No pleasant dealer in a bad tuxedo shirt and bow tie in this game.
Rather, in this "friendly" game of cards featuring 37 unique, playable
characters and 126 levels spanning 81 square miles in 9 environments, players
race around on high-powered vehicles, engaging machine guns, dynamite,
heat-seeking-missiles and more, to find, grab, or steal their winning hand.
    "'Arctic Stud Poker Run' lets you do all those things you daydream about
while patiently sitting at a Texas Hold 'Em table," said Got Game
Entertainment President Howard Horowitz. "Here's your chance to steal cards,
shoot machine guns, and put a bounty on the head of your biggest poker
competition."
    While gameplay is fast and furious, "Arctic Stud Poker Run" allows
players with varying skill sets to compete effectively thanks to the "Auto
Card Swap" feature which alleviates the need for advance poker knowledge, plus
the "Big Hand Possible" feature which advises the best available hands before
the round begins. "Arctic Stud Poker Run" also features cash-based tournament
scoring and a player-to-player bounty system for alliance formation.
