Acclaim's Tee Off Scores A Hole-In-One As the First Golf Title For The Sega Dreamcast
Addictive Gameplay Makes Tee Off a Must-Have for Video Game Golfers
GLEN COVE, N.Y., January 12, 1999 - Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:AKLM), a leading worldwide interactive entertainment company, today announced that Tee Off, the first golf title for the next-generation Sega Dreamcast, has shipped to stores nationwide.
"Tee Off brings addictive golf gameplay to the most advanced console system to date," said Rick Mehler, marketing manager at Acclaim Entertainment. "With arcade-style action, stunning graphics, and precision golfing, Tee Off is a must-have Sega Dreamcast title for golf fans."
Tee Off lets gamers play as one of 15 talented anime golfers on a quest to become the number-one golfer. Each unique character has its own wide range of skills and can control shots by adding topspin, backspin, hooks, and slices. Gamers can choose from five different levels of play: beginner, amateur, semi-pro, pro and senior. Golfers then hit the greens on five challenging courses in Africa, America, Australia, Japan and Scotland. Tee Off also features six game modes that will test even the best golfer's skills: World Tour, Free-Round, Match Play, Stroke Play, Point Play and the futuristic Gate Ball. Also included is a multiplayer mode up to four players.
Developed by Bottom-Up and published by Acclaim, Tee Off is supported by a nationwide marketing campaign that includes print advertising in gaming and Sega Dreamcast-specific publications.
