Acclaim Entertainment's Iggy's Reckin' Balls* Swings its Way Onto the N64 This Week

Vertical Platform Racing Game Features Over 100 Levels of Frenetic

GLEN COVE, N.Y., August 27, 1998 -- Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:AKLM), a leading worldwide interactive entertainment company, today announced that its genre-busting vertical platform racing game for the Nintendo 64, Iggy's Reckin' Balls, is now shipping. Featuring outrageous character animations and zany sound effects, Iggy's Reckin' Balls will appeal to gamers of all ages as they bounce into a race of speed, skill, cunning and comedy.

Iggy's Reckin' Balls is being developed by Acclaim's Iguana Entertainment, creators of NFL Quarterback Club '98, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and All-Star Baseball '99. In the game, players select one of eight different balls (including Iggy, the lead character, who is loosely based on Iguana's reptilian mascot), each with its own unique personality and attributes, and race it through over 100 twisting, towering tracks. Players must use a chain-link grapple extending from each character's head to advance to the next level, while avoiding the Paranoid Pushie Creatures and Slimy Stickie Slugs attempting to thwart each player's progress. Along the way, players collect power-ups ranging from Freeze Bombs to Seeking Projectiles and manipulate crazy devices including Giant Fans, Conveyor Belts, Magic Warps and more.

"Iggy's Reckin' Balls spans the racing and platform genres to create a fun and hilarious game with plenty of surprises," said Christina Recchio, Acclaim marketing manager. "With themes ranging from Candylane to Tektricity and play for up to four players, Iggy's Reckin' Balls is challenging and fun for the entire family."
