Los Angeles, CA, March 25, 1997 -- Shanghai fans are guaranteed a double dose of their favorite mind-bender this Spring when Activision, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ATVI) Shanghai Double Pack for Windows and Macintosh hits retail shelves the week of March 31. The twin pack features Shanghai: Great Moments and Shanghai II: Dragon's Eye, offering gamers countless hours of addicting strategic gameplay. The universally-popular Shanghai games challenge players to test their mental agility as they match pairs of tiles to clear a layout.
Classic tile-matching excitement merges with high technology in Shanghai: Great Moments, a multimedia spectacular of video, audio and animation hosted by actress Rosalind Chao (Joy Luck Club). Stunning tile animations, film clips and video segments portray some of the greatest moments in the history of science, politics and the arts as players test their puzzle-solving strategies.
