CHESSINGTON, England -- Sega’s new skill-based redemption game, Pixel Chase, is now shipping worldwide. Sega Amusements observes that the game wowed operators and players when it made its debut at the recent International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions Expo in Orlando, FL, and again at the recent 10th anniversary EAG International Expo in London.

Sega noted that many visitors to both events were enthusiastic about the new piece’s simple, fun, intuitive gameplay and impressed by its slick “modern retro” cabinet design. Enjoying strong initial testing and evoking glowing reviews from its early adopters, the company noted that Pixel Chase has quickly become a must-have on every location. With demand surging, Sega is encouraging customers to place orders as soon as possible, ahead of the peak season.

Pixel Chase offers straightforward play action, Sega explained. Players must throw as many balls into the LED-illuminated target holes, arranged as a 4x4 pixel grid, before the timer runs out. Target holes look like huge pixels; they light up in bright red, green or blue, with each color corresponding to a different score. A player who exceeds the high score wins bonus tickets.

“There is always a lot of frantic action and excitement around this game as players try to catch the moving high-value target,” said Sega U.S. sales manager Vince Moreno.

Pixel Chase has been engineered with great “fun” audio and a strong repeat play appeal. It produces bright, colorful patterns that will light up any location to entice players. A robust, high-quality design with wide playfield encourages two players to team up to beat the high score. Balls are returned quickly to both players, so there is always lots of fun and action throughout the game, Sega explained.

When assembled, a single unit of Pixel Chase has a cabinet of 97" D.  (247 cm.) x 41" W. (105 cm.) x 105" (268 cm.) H. To increase revenues further, operators can invest in two games unified by a “mega bonus” marquee.

Pixel Chase may be ordered from Sega by calling (847) 364-9787 (or 44 [0] 208 391-8090 in Europe); emailing to sales@segaarcade.com; or contacting a local authorized Sega distributor.

THRILL OF THE CHASE: New Sega Pixel Chase game pays homage to the low-resolution graphics of the early videogames. The object is to deposit the ball into one of the “pixel holes” arranged in a grid; the holes light up to display scores.
