Using a slate of more than eight types of innovative tools like fans, bombs, trees, harpoons and freezers, players must help their fishy friends to safety on their Earthbound descent.

Downstream Panic! is rated E10+ and is available for the PSP system at the suggested retail price of $29.95.

“We think gamers can’t help but fall for Downstream Panic!” said Donny Clay, Producer, Atari, Inc. “The game combines action, tactics and puzzle elements with an incredibly colorful and fun style. Once gamers give this game a try, we think they’ll be saying ‘oh my cod!’ But seriously, we think kids and adults alike should give the game a try just for the halibut.”

Developed by Eko Software, Downstream Panic! offers more than 80 levels in five bright and colorful environments. Three different game modes (adventure, free play and survival) mix up the challenge. With more than 10 hours of standard gameplay as well as 10 new Paradise-themed maps available as downloadable content, Downstream Panic! promises to keep gamers reeling for months and months.
