for more details. For more information on each title, check out the list below:
Release Date: Friday, March 24th
This game is obsessed with the number 8. At 8 minutes past 8 on August 8th, 1988, the world is being held to ransom by villain Dr. H8. If you are to prevent the launch of 88 thermo-nuclear warheads that would annihilate Earth, the planet's 88th president must pay the ransom of 88 octillion dollars within 88 hours. The issue is that the planet is bankrupt and this isn't an option. 88 leaders from 88 of the planet's countries come up with a plan. You and your team of 88 different characters must infiltrate Dr. H8's super lairs and retrieve the 8 digit coordinates that tell you where his space base is located. If you destroy the base, you won't have to pay the ransom! The catch is that you only have a total of 7744 seconds, or 88 seconds for each of the lairs' 88 levels, to reach Dr H8 and stop him by other means.
