FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
11 AM GMT, March 9, 2006

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND, MARCH 9, 2006: Pixel Magick, a new mobile phone game developer, are pleased to announce the release of their first game, a new word game called Wordsnake.

Wordsnake is available in seven different languages with over 12,000 words in each dictionary. Pixel Magick's founder, David Greenberg said "We believe Wordsnake has the largest dictionary ever used in a mobile phone game, and is available in more languages than any other original word game for a phone. For a new developer's first game release, this is an achievement to be proud of and we are very pleased with the results."

Wordsnake is played by building words from random letters, starting from letters already on the board, leading to snake-like structures, hence the game's name. Despite its apparent simplicity, Wordsnake proves to be an addictive game that requires the player to develop complex strategies to survive and progress to new levels.

A demo version and details of how to purchase the game can be found at www.wordsnake.com.
