Game Descriptions
The motion game immerses players in an intense and cinematic world, enabling players to use their body for the hyper-realistic, dynamic and interactive environments. Booster Juice Surf places the “cool” you in board shorts riding a branded surf board in the centre of a giant wave. Points accumulate as you avoid dolphins and buoys while trying to keep your balance.

Juice Bar Jumper is a 2D running style game and closely resembles the recognizable Booster Juice stores. With incredibly cute illustrations and a suspenseful storyline, a strawberry speedily whisks across counter tops, earning extra points upon collecting yummy blueberries. As time passes, the difficulty increases.

In another 2D game, the same superstar character—a strawberry with a dashing smile—rides a Booster Juice cup like a rocket, fruits firing out instead flames. He flies through the skies avoiding evil candy, collecting tasty fruit and racking up the points.

The third game unravels a darker, more riveting plot involving the destiny of the strawberry. This is a uniquely-styled, intense game, with challenges above and below, where the player has to double tap to slip in between terrifying blenders. In these vibrantly drawn worlds, players must use a variety of skills to survive and gain points.

Additional games were also designed to challenge your mind. These puzzles are formulated to make you think as you match fruit and test your reflexes. Certainly the game play experience is enhanced while sipping one of Booster Juice’s delicious smoothies.

Food inflation in Canada shows signs of easing, but grocery prices to remain high

Food inflation appears to be easing in Canada, but experts say shoppers shouldn’t expect lower prices at the grocery store.

Statistics Canada says the cost of groceries in February rose 10.6 per cent compared with a year before, down from an 11.4 per cent year-over-year increase in January.

Yet a falling food inflation rate doesn’t mean the price of food is coming down.

Instead, it means prices are rising less quickly, signalling the worst of the era of grocery price hikes could be behind us.

Sylvain Charlebois, director of the Agri-Food Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University, says the food inflation rate is expected to continue to cool throughout the spring and into summer.

But he says Canadians may still experience sticker shock at the grocery store as some food prices are still significantly higher than a year ago.

Alberta moves to force oilpatch to pay owed taxes above ‘threshold’ amount

Published on

The Alberta government says it’s moving to force oilpatch companies to make good on their unpaid municipal taxes.

Energy Minister Peter Guthrie says he’s issued an order that blocks companies from acquiring or transferring licences on wells or other assets if their unpaid taxes exceed a threshold amount.

That threshold is yet to be determined and will be set by the Alberta Energy Regulator and Alberta Municipal Affairs.

Alberta Energy says in a release that once the threshold has been established, companies that don’t meet it will be targeted for collection.

Rural Municipalities Alberta has said energy companies owe the municipal districts in which they operate a total of $268 million.

Paul McLauchlin of the group says the order will help reduce the unpaid tax burden on its members.
