Roogoo was released at the beginning of the month on Xbox Live Arcade, and SouthPeak Games has announced that the game is now available on PC for $20. That’s twice the price of the game on Arcade, which is far too much for me, personally — I didn’t really care for the game when I checked it out for the XBLA Hors D’oeuvres story, although I have had the craving to go back and try it again.

Roogoo is a fun, family friendly puzzle game that is as addictive as it is cute,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “Not only does the game get progressively more challenging to play, but it also gets harder and harder to put down.”

ROOGOO NOW SHIPPING FOR PC
SouthPeak’s Critically Acclaimed Xbox LIVE® Arcade Puzzle Game is Available Now Wherever PC Games are Sold

MIDLOTHIAN, VA – June 25, 2008 – SouthPeak Games today announced that its puzzle game Roogoo is now available for Windows PC. Roogoo, which was previously released on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft, features 45 levels as well as two-player split screen.

“Roogoo is a fun, family friendly puzzle game that is as addictive as it is cute,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “Not only does the game get progressively more challenging to play, but it also gets harder and harder to put down.”

Taking place in the fantasyland of Planet Roo, you star as one of the last Roogoo’s still uncorrupted by the evil King Goo. King Goo can think of nothing but power and uses his influence to make other Roogoos believe that greed is the way of life. He starts to steal joyful meteors from the sky and uses their powers to build bigger and more powerful cities. After a fair amount of stealing, many of the kingdom’s once cute and innocent Roogoos have turned into wicked Meemoos. It is your job to stop King Goo from collecting the remaining meteors and to turn the Meemoos back into Roogoos before it’s too late.

In order to accomplish your quest and save Planet Roo, you must guide falling meteors, in the form of different shape blocks, through rotating platforms. When matched correctly, the blocks are allowed to reach their intended destination. Each meteor you guide correctly gets you one step closer to your goal.

Roogoo is available now for $19.99 at retailers everywhere. It is rated E for Everyone.
