DUBLIN, July 15 --

- Bookworm Adventures 2 Arrives in One Month, Takes Players on All-New Literary
Escapades; Adds New Monsters, New Tile Types, Book-Based Companions and More

PopCap Games, the leading developer and publisher of casual games, today
announced that Bookworm(TM) Adventures 2 will launch on the Web for PC and Mac
one month from today. The sequel to the 2007 original takes players into three
new literary landscapes and adds reams of new features and fun touches to the
most popular digital word game franchise of all time. Available beginning July
30 exclusively on PopCap.com, BWA 2 will carry a list price of US$19.95.

Bookworm Adventures Volume 2 exceeds its predecessor both in wordy fun and
goofy puns, said Tysen Henderson, Executive Producer at PopCap. From the crazy
book themes and brand-new game play to the powerful new ’companions’
who join Lex on his adventure, Bookworm Adventures Vol. 2 takes the original
word-game-with-light-role-playing-game play and runs in some exciting, funny new

In the Bookworm Adventures series, players take on the role of Lex the
bookworm, leading him through a series of well-known books and fictional
characters which Lex must overcome by forming words from an ever-changing set of
letter tiles. Making longer and more complex words gives Lex greater fighting
prowess, while special gem letter tiles offer a range of power-up effects of
their own. Various potions and treasures give Lex added power, defense, health,
and dozens of other persistent or one-time abilities. In the new sequel, wild
card rainbow tiles, 20 new treasures and zany literary companions - fictional
animal allies including Mother Goose and the Cheshire Cat - all provide players
with even more ways to spell S-U-C-C-E-S-S. Three new mini-games augment those
from the original BWA, offering a total of six different side quest activities
to earn additional potions and power-ups.

and Astounding Planets! - All-new infinite Replay mode! Pick a book, fight foes
