M&M's: The Lost Formula Now Available at Retail
5:20 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Simon & Schuster Interactive recently announced that their new 3D title M&M's: The Lost Forumula has gone gold and will soon appear in retail stores. In this 3D action game which stars the M&M characters Red and Yellow from the recent ad campaigns, players must master fast-paced game play and improve their math skills to progress through the game. Here is how the story starts off:

Simon & Schuster Interactive and "M&M's"(R) Chocolate Candies have joined forces to cook-up "M&M's": The Lost Formulas, the first and sweetest CD-ROM game based on the "M&M's" Characters from the popular advertising campaign. This fast-moving 3-D action/education title, starring the "M&M's" Characters, allows players to master fast-paced game play and improve math skills all while enjoying the tantalizing graphics immersing them in a chocolate charged interactive world. Dripping with good fun, "M&M's": The Lost Formulas (PC/Mac Hybrid) is recommended for kids ages 5-10. It is now available at a suggested retail price of $19.95 (Rated "E" or "Everyone" by the ESRB).


The bittersweet story begins with Red and Yellow about to depart on much a needed vacation. Suddenly the phone rings and Red learns to his horror that Yellow has left the "M&M's" MINIs in charge of the candy factory. They've stolen the secret candy formulas and have hidden them throughout the factory. The future of chocolate candy is at stake! The Lost Formulas must be recovered and it is up to Yellow to save his fellow sweets.

M&M's: The Lost Formula retails for $19.95 and requires a 3D accelerator. Watch for it on a shelf near you.
