NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2011 -- The time has come to pound the pavement and save the earth from impending doom! 345 Games, the video gaming arm of COMEDY CENTRAL and Spike TV, announced today that its upcoming shooter "Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon" will be launching for PlayStation(R)Network on August 30 and for Xbox LIVE(R)Arcade August 31 for a retail price of $9.99. Published by COMEDY CENTRAL Games and developed by Backbone Entertainment, this hilarious game unites the humor and spirit of the popular animated comedy-horror series "Ugly Americans" with classic and addictive dual analog shooting gameplay. The game features all of the voice actors from the show, a script penned by the show writers and original characters created by the show creator Devin Clark.

"It won't be too much longer until gamers everywhere can get their hands on the first COMEDY CENTRAL branded arcade game," said Dan Yang, general manager, 345 Games. "We've been working hard to infuse 'Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon' with a combination of addicting gameplay and the comedic sensibilities that has made the show such a success.

With four-player top-down co-op gameplay that hearkens back to such classics as Gauntlet and Robotron, "Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon" features four playable characters, each with their own unique abilities, weapons and strengths. Players must comb the streets of New York City and pacify raving demons, delinquent man birds and zombies by lactating fire or hurling wacky objects like flying demon skulls, fish, baseballs and wrenches. Investigate case files from the Department of Integration and battle devastating and distinctive bosses at the end of each mission, each bringing you one step closer to finding out who is trying to bring about the end of days!

"Ugly Americans" airs on Thursdays at 10:30 P.M. on COMEDY CENTRAL.

"Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon" will be available for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points.
