Computer Games Online has noted that Fox Interactive recently announced the availability of a game based on the award-winning animated television show King of the Hill. This value-priced title features characters from the show (created by Mike Judge of Beavis and Butthead fame) in various interactive games and puzzles. Although there is no information about the game on either the Fox or Fox Interactive web sites, the Mac and PC versions of this title are listed in several online stores.

Here's an excerpt from the article on CGO:

Fox Interactive today announced the availability of an all-new interactive experience for fans of King of the Hill, the Emmy Award-winning Fox animated television series. Featuring dozens of activities and games, King of the Hill also includes an original storyline, 15 different characters from the show the exclusive bonus game—Texas Huntin'. The King of the Hill game can be played on both PC and Mac computers and is available nationwide for about twenty bucks.

The story takes place at the seventh annual block party during the Fourth of July weekend in the Hill's Texas neighborhood. You assume the role of the newest addition to the block and must rely on your social graces and hand-eye coordination to gain the friendship and acceptance of your fellow neighbors. Throughout the day's festivities, residents compete in events including Scavenger Hunt, Mosquito Attack and the Lawnmower Race. New neighbors also chip in and complete party chores such as Ice the Beer and Sunscreen Bill. At the end of the party, Hank Hill and the rest of his crew decide whether or not to accept the new tenant. You control your own fate and each ending based on how well you handle each activity and challenge. Individual games also include Mini-Golf with Bill and Dale's Paintball.

Fans of the television show's quaint charm might find this title a good stocking-stuffer for the holiday season. We'll bring you details and screen shots when they are available.
