For Immediate Release:
Rochester, MN (June 1, 1999) - Songbird Productions is pleased to announce renewed support for Atari gaming consoles in the form of new releases for the Jaguar and Lynx.
Topping off the list is Ponx for the Atari Lynx. Ponx brings the ball- and-paddle classic that started it all to the Lynx. But this isn't your ordinary game. Ponx features a number of options, such as multiple balls, a Lynx controlled opponent with selectable AI, and more. Plus, in a throwback to classic handheld gaming, play against a friend on the same Lynx unit (no comlynx cable or second Ponx cartridge necessary!).
The target release date for Ponx is June 18, 1999, and the retail price is $39.95. If you are interested in ordering Ponx, please visit the Songbird Productions web page at http://songbird.atari.org. Dealer inquiries welcome.
Songbird Productions continues to make significant progress on Protector, a fast-paced 2D bi-directional shooter for the Jaguar. Anticipated release date is later in 1999.
In addition, Songbird Productions has licensed a number of unreleased games from former Jaguar developers. The games licensed are: Soccer Kid from Krisalis Software Ltd., Hyper Force from Visual Impact, and Skyhammer from Rebellion.
"Jaguar and Lynx fans have remained highly supportive of Atari game consoles," said Carl Forhan, owner of Songbird Productions. "I can't tell you how excited I am to have licensed these games from their respective companies and know that I will get them into gamers' hands in the coming months. This is a great opportunity for Songbird Productions to help sustain the Jaguar and Lynx into the next millennium."
At press time, no release dates had been set for any of the Jaguar products. All inquiries on these products should be directed to Songbird Productions only.
