SaiZon launches online gaming site based on popular STIKFAS Action Figure line
Montreal, Quebec, Canada – 3rd May 2007. SaiZon is extending the scope of playability of Stikfas Action Figure Kits through the launch of a new online gaming website - www.stikfasgames.com
The new website currently features 8 games, each of which features a product from the Stikfas product line. For example, one of the games features the Stikfas Alpha Male Diver with Octopus that has players guide the Stikfas Diver through an underwater cave, avoiding a multitude of dangers that include the Stikfas Octopus while making sure not to run out of air. Bonus points are awarded by picking up MBears - the latest toy line introduced by Stikfas Pte Ltd that feature in their own game that tests players’ reflexes.
Other games currently available to play feature the Stikfas Dune Buggy, Dragon, Spaceman, Mechana Robot and KootiKooti Wrestling Stiks. For fans of the hit number based puzzle craze Sudoku, there is an image version where the tiles are images of various Stikfas action figures.
Players who sign up for free membership can save their scores and be ranked on the global leader board. In the near future, members will be able to invite friends to create a team and compete against each other as well as collaborate together against other teams.
In addition to games, the site also has a feature called STIKstrip that allows players to write their own short comic strip by entering text in a pre-prepared strip featuring Stikfas Action Figures. A second option enables 2 friends to collaborate, each taking turns to complete a text bubble but without seeing what their friend has written until the end, when all is revealed – often with hilarious results.
Martin New, Director of Channel Sales and Marketing at SaiZon, explains that “since SaiZon received the license to distribute Stikfas Action Figures in North America, we envisaged that casual gaming would be a great extension to the playability of the highly poseable and collectible figures. Today we are pleased to make this vision a reality and look forward to adding new games and features based on the many existing and future Stikfas products.”
New games in the pipeline include a first person shooter featuring the top selling Stikfas Assault Team and Dome Robot Walker and STIKboogy where players will be able to put their faces on an animated dancing Stikfas and share with their friends.
