EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2012) - Launching players into orbit, Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today released its free galactic mobile role-playing game (RPG) Sci-Fi Heroes for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Faced with overpowering corrupt cosmic forces, players take charge of a legion of space combat specialists to overthrow extraterrestrial foes and restore interstellar stability.

"Sci-Fi Heroes is an action-RPG that combines the best parts of the sci-fi genre into one fun game," said Jeffrey Anderson, senior vice president of social and mobile games, Majesco Entertainment. "Players will definitely enjoy its retro science-fiction feel, intuitive gameplay, personable characters and kitschy humor."

In Sci-Fi Heroes, the diabolical Calimar Space Horde has ruthlessly conquered the four planets of a once peaceful solar system in a hostile takeover, leaving the fate of the universe in the hands of eight ragtag space warriors. Facing insurmountable odds, players will take control of these brave underdogs to help restore peace and kick some serious Space Horde butt. Players can join forces with friends to collaboratively complete quests, defeat formidable nemeses and find rare items across more than 40 levels on four different planets, each containing unique enemies, landscapes and bosses.

  • Iconic Sci-Fi Heroes - Players can choose from eight unique mercenaries torn from the greatest traditions of Sci-Fi: Space Marine, Animal Trainer, Space Cowboy, Priest, Id Master, Exxo, Healbot and Technomancer.

  • Build the Ultimate Team of Heroes - Combining and controlling up to four characters at a time, players can test out different team combinations to find their perfect crew.

  • Futuristic Weapons and Pets - With more than 100 distinctive items, players can utilize laser swords, iconic blasters and even a pet tiger. Level up and learn new skills to help take on sinister foes.

  • Battle Bullying Bosses - Players and their ragtag group of fighters need to stay on their toes to figure out a way to beat increasingly difficult and menacing Horde bosses.
