When you think of classic high school classic movies, you automatically think of Clueless for the 90’s, Pretty in Pink for the 80’s and Mean Girl’s for this decade. Now you can experience each of these movies in a new way, via the OMG! High School Triple Play Pack which comes with three PC games – one for each movie, for just $19.95. The Pretty in Pink game is logic and puzzled oriented, while Clueless is focused on fashion and styling, and Mean Girls is a strategy and role-playing game merged with puzzle elements. You can download these games online or buy them at your local game shop. Either way it’s great to see more girly oriented video games being pushed out, especially ones surrounding movies that several generations of girls can appreciate. Check out the press release below for a more detailed description of each game.
PRETTY IN PINK
Based on the classic hit movie, the Pretty in Pink video game takes players on a nostalgic trip back to the 1980s. Andie, Duckie, Blane and all the unforgettable characters from the “wrong side of the tracks” and the “richie” kids return in the game. Players might experience a twist from the original movie ending because this time, Andie’s fate is in the players’ hands. Through hidden object, logic, and puzzle games the player recreates the classic romantic triangle between Andie, Duckie and Blane to relive the memorable story that defined a generation.
In addition to the main gameplay, the player will collect extra hidden items that will ultimately affect who Andie goes to the dance with. Will the rich and popular Blane capture the heart of poor but, fashion-conscious Andie, will she end up with her long-time friend and geeky new-waver, Duckie or a possible third ending that is anyone’s guess? In Pretty in Pink players also collect “prom items,” pieces of clothing that Andie can use to make her prom dress at the end of the game. The more prom items that have been discovered, the more options the player will have to build her dress.
Pretty in Pink includes five hours of gameplay with 49 levels to play through 10 memorable locations from the movie like Trax Records, Cat’s Nightclub, Iona’s apartment, the School Library and Prom. The game also features six mini games with memory, logic, jigsaw puzzles and other challenges that will test players’ skills and wit.
Clueless welcomes the player to Beverly Hills where nothing is better than wearing a great outfit on a perfect date with your dream guy. Players take on the role of fashion-maven Cher, whose life is not always as easy as it looks since her friends and family are continuously misunderstanding her very honorable intentions for them. It is up to the player to help Cher and her friends through the ups and downs of finding true love and, of course, looking good.
The game features over 500 fashionable options of tops, dresses, pants, shoes and accessories that players choose from to assemble stylish outfits over the course of 80 different levels. There are sixteen clothing styles, ranging from contemporary to vintage, so players can mix and match hip trends from the past and present to create the highest scoring outfits in a race against the clock. Cher will then let the player know if she makes the grade. Even the player’s boyfriend will compliment her fashion savvy—and if she is lucky enough to have styled an outfit that matches his taste, extra bonus points will be awarded.
There are also cool mini games like the Fashion Memory Mode where players match styles of hot outfits from memory and then position their model in the same stylish pose before time runs out. In the Concave Pavilion photo shoot, players dress their model, choose her position and location, and then can export the image to share with friends.
Clueless also includes the films’ original opening soundtrack and music, in addition to the incredibly cool outfits that were created under the direction of students from the Fashion Institute of Design in Los Angeles.
Mean Girls is the ultimate High School Showdown. In the game, the player is the new girl at North Shore High and it is up to them to decide how they will try to unite or control the school. The power is in their hands as they create and customize their unique character and choose to play naughty or nice with the other students. The ultimate goal is to achieve perfect social harmony or complete domination of the school in this highly addictive puzzle/role-playing game.
Mean Girls merges strategy and role-playing elements that coincide in the match-three puzzle game board and are played out via head-to-head, turn-based game play that pushes players to plan, think, and strategize against opponents. With an upbeat alternative rock soundtrack composed by renowned artists, the game includes 25 battles with over 40 characters in 12 locations within the High School. As players win showdowns and gain experience, a wide variety of skills become unlocked that players can use to customize their battle strategy. Attribute points are used to fine-tune their character’s charisma, intelligence, endurance, luck and strength to further modify their battle style.
The game also includes a number of random encounters with students who will want to battle against you, and side quests where your job is to round up slackers and take them back to class. Success at these activities will gain your character extra bonus points and experience, which are used to obtain new skills for showdowns.
The OMG! High School Triple Play Pack has an MSRP of $19.95 and can be purchased at retailers nationwide or from www.legacygames.com. More information on all of the games can be found at www.omghighschool.com
