Booster Packs Coming for Magic Ball, Cuboid and Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom

Michael Robinson's Avatar + Posted by Michael Robinson on Apr 14, 2009 // Director of Communications, Creat Studios

You’ve heard the rumors. You’ve been dreaming about the possibilities. The anticipation has been palpable. You can hardly contain yourself. Well, my PSN brethren, your time has come.

I’m both honored and thrilled to announce the release of Booster Packs for the Creat Studios/TikGames titles Magic Ball, Cuboid, and Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom. Here are the details:

  • Magic Ball, a fresh spin on classic brick-breaking gameplay in which players bust apart 3D environments, offers gamers new action with the release of the Magic Ball Booster Pack, featuring a whole new world to destroy. Players will be able to smash their way through 25 all-new magical, witch-themed levels, earning a series of new trophies along the way. Custom music support will also be made available via a free patch download.

  • Cuboid, a mind-bending 3D puzzle game, will offer gamers three different options for add-on content. The Cuboid Booster Pack contains 33 new levels that will test even the best players’ skills, rewarding gamers with new trophies. The Cuboid Level Editor allows players to become level designers and challenge others with their own custom levels. Players can either create a brand new level from scratch, or improve upon any existing level, created by other players or taken from the original campaigns. User-created levels can be uploaded to the PSN where they will be made available to other players (who have downloaded the free patch). Players can also earn trophies for creating their own levels, and for rating the levels created by others. The Cuboid Bundle Pack includes both the Booster Pack (33 new levels) and the Level Editor. Custom music support for Cuboid is also on its way via a free patch download.
  • The Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom Booster Pack features 25 all new layouts to beat in Infinity mode, as well as a level editor that allows players to create their own layouts from scratch and share their creations with other gamers by hosting an online multiplayer game on their custom-created level. Players can then save any new customized level that they have created or played via online multiplayer invitation to their HDD. Also included is a series of new trophies, obtainable by only the most dedicated Mahjong players. Highly-requested mouse support will also be made available via a free patch download.

First up will be the Magic Ball Booster Pack, scheduled for release this Thursday, April 16. The Cuboid and Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom Booster Packs will be released in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for those exciting and highly anticipated releases as well.

We listened carefully to your feedback as to what you were looking for in add-on DLC for these titles, and I think we have managed to deliver on almost everything that was requested. How’s that for customer service? Cheers!

Wow, My friend has cuboid, and I was going to buy Magic Ball on Sunday, and now with DLC, I will buy for sure.
There will be any bundle with the game and the DLC? Let´s see Magic Ball 9.99, DLC ?.??. Bundle for a great price. What do you think?

    For such quality additional humor, the price is just a low, low $2.99. How can you say no to that? It\’s humor-tastic!

Is it possible to implement remote play for the PSP for any of these titles? We have such a limited selection of titles that allow it, but yet it is a very useful feature that gives PSP users more chances to play the games.

I’m LOVING this news! Thank you so much! I think you guys have earned the title of “My Personal Favorite Playstation Network Developers” I know you guys don’t have the most crazy PSN games, but they’re fun and your support is flawless! Custom Soundtracks for mgaic ball and cuboid is a beautiful new addition, and mouse support for Mahjong will likely increase my addiction with that game! Thank you so much, and keep the fun casual distractions coming!

(Oh, and no offense meant for the “distraction” bit… I like having casual games like these to fall back on after an intense session of hardcore goodness! So, I call casual games casual distractions… ) :)

Can’t wait for the Cuboid DLC, although I hope the price is reasonable, but I find Cuboid to be the best brain-training puzzle game on the PSN so far, plus its exclusive! Any chance the soundtrack(s) will hit the PSN? Probably get Magical Ball some time as soon as the DLC will be bundled. The game here cost 9,99 Euro plus DLC, um no.

+ Watchmann on April 14th, 2009 at 8:05 am said:

Awesome news, Michael. Thanks! I love Magic Ball, and have been awaiting this booster since the trophy tease these last several weeks (months?!). I’m really pleased that the custom soundtrack will be part of a free game update. Not so much because I really must have custom soundtrack support, but because a previous blog post suggested that this feature would be part of paid DLC. I’m pleased that you guys reconsidered, as paying for custom soundtracks seems to run contrary to how most developers are providing this feature.

How much will this DLC be? $5 seems appropriate, based on the original pricing scheme: $10 (full game w/ 2 themes) divided by 2 = $5! Anything more is exhorbinant; Anythings less is a deal. We’ll see!

+ StooBush on April 14th, 2009 at 8:05 am said:

Any chance we can get a Magic Ball and/or Cuboid Demo? I won’t buy anything without taking it for a spin first. Demos got me to buy Age of Booty, Echochrome, The Last Guy, and Super Rub A Dub. Magic Ball looks great, but no demo, no buy.

+ acerazer1 on April 14th, 2009 at 8:11 am said:

I still need a few more trophies on Mahjong, though I haven’t been the most dedicated as of late….

+ NarcMonkey on April 14th, 2009 at 8:14 am said:

Got an idea for Magic Ball… Difficulty levels. A patch to make the game faster, or more challenging in some way would be great. Its good fun and all, but once you’ve mastered your strategy for picking up power ups and avoiding negative status drops, the game is too easy. Added speed alone would make things interesting. And I don’t mean more crazy ball drops, I hate those things! haha.

Anyway, really looking forward to the new levels. They better be pretty cheap though, because 25 levels may sound like a lot, but my wife and I will chew through those in an hour or so…

You reminded me I still gotta get Cuboid, looks like good fun.

I would definitely buy Cuboid now that it’s actually going to have some reply value.
I love playing Mahjong on my laptop, but I’ll definitely consider purchasing it on PSN.
