Eco-Creatures: Save the Forest is a real-time strategy game in which players use the Touch Screen to control units of woodland creatures—named Ecolis, Ecoby and Ecomon—to protect the naturally beautiful Mana Woods and recover the polluted land. All creature types have unique skills that must be strategically managed. With proper nurturing, they can evolve to learn new abilities that help complete the game's more than 40 environmental missions. As players grow their woodland army, they must plant new trees to revitalize the woodlands and prevent deforestation.
Eco-Creatures also includes a creative Land Make feature that lets players build and play their own maps. In addition, the game supports two-player play via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and up to four players via Wireless Single Card download play or Multi-Card play.
Eco-Creatures: Save the Forest will launch March 4 for the Nintendo DS at a suggested retail price of $29.99. For additional information, please visit www.majescoentertainment.com.
