Electronic Arts' mobile division has released Tetris Blitz to the U.S. App Store. Blitz offers a new twist on the classic puzzle game. Players must race against the clock to score as many points as possible before time runs out. The game features easy one-touch and swipe controls, plenty of fun and interesting power-ups, and hours of replay value.
I originally thought Tetris Blitz was just another flashy, button mashing time killer, but it can be an addictive strategy game. Especially if you attempt to climb the leaderboards, which reset every week. The game's multiple power-ups, finishers, and Frenzy mode make it a fun mobile app that new and old Tetris fans will love.
PopCap, a division of Electronic Arts Inc, has rolled out the first of many planned sequels to Plants vs. Zombies as a closed beta on Facebook. Plants vs. Zombies Adventures is a social media game where players can interact online while thwarting the zombie invasion. PopCap will officially roll out PvZ Adventures to the general public this spring, before releasing Zombie vs. Plants 2 this summer.
Curt Bererton, head of PopCap’s San Francisco studio, promises Plants vs. Zombies Adventures will feature plenty of new plants and zombies, along with old favorites.
“The [game] features all-new forms of zombie combat that will open PvZ to a whole new world, explained Bereton. "We like to think we’re creating a brand new twist on the classic Plants vs. Zombies that is the most social, shareable and expansive Plants vs. Zombies experience ever.”
