Markham, Canada – November 28, 2012 - Rock Hippo Productions Ltd. announced today the launch of its latest update – Boot Camp - for their popular free-to-play cartoon-style third-person shooter, MicroVolts.  This update introduces new military-themed Weapons and Parts for every character, bringing a realistic appeal to this toy shooter.  Join the toy war, register for events and check out the latest screenshots at www.MicroVolts.com!  

The MicroVolts Team is enlisting soldiers of all ranks to join their armed forces!  Use your tactical expertise as one of the Micro World’s “belles in blue” in Naomi’s new “MVPD” uniform!  For those desert terrain missions, regimentals in camouflage are required!  Check out Naomi’s “Camo” military uniform in the Capsule Machine, Knox’s “Desert Boonie” uniform in the Micro Point Shop and Pandora’s “Elite” uniform in the Rock Token Shop. 

To rise through the military ranks, MicroVolters will need a brand new arsenal as well!  Sniper Teams standby with the new line of AWM Snipers as troops charge the front line with powerful MP5s.  Support Teams will provide widespread coverage with the new line of 134 Gatling Guns.  

With the addition of new Gangnam Style dance moves in MicroVolts, players worldwide have been uploading their best dance videos to YouTube!  Enter your dance crew in MicroVolts latest competition to win cash and point prizes!  Be the judge for our finalists next week!   Competitive and casual players alike should stay tuned for entertaining holiday tournaments and events in the upcoming month as well!
