SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2007) -


WHAT: RealArcade® is announcing the availability of two new casual games this week -- Hotel Mahjong Deluxe and Neptune's Secret.

Hotel Mahjong Deluxe was developed by Zylom®, Real's Netherlands-based casual games studio. Players match tiles in the rooms of a 20-floor hotel, unlocking new rooms as they complete each challenge. The 100 levels in this fast-paced game will satisfy both the classic Mahjong player as well as those looking for a new twist on this favorite genre.

Also newly available is the puzzle game Neptune's Secret, developed by Gameagents Corp. and published by RealArcade. Fans of seek-and-find games will enjoy 75 levels as an archaeologist uncovering the secrets of a kingdom in the lost city of Atlantis. Neptune's secret draws upon the best elements of the popular hidden picture genre, tying in an engaging story, rich voiceovers and an impressive hint feature that's as entertaining as it is helpful.

Casual games are simple to learn but may take a life time to master. Fans of casual games enjoy the quick-play format that fits easily into busy schedules, providing a quick way to relax, recharge, or simply pass the time with an entertaining challenge. RealArcade strives to incorporate simple game play, intriguing challenges, interesting story lines and visually stunning graphics into each new game release.
