6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
PopCap Games yesterday announced that it has launched a custom version of its flagship game Bejeweled for the Safari Web browser on Apple's new iPhone and is making it available at no cost to iPhone owners. Users can log on to PopCap's site via iPhone's Web browser and play the iPhone-specific version of the original match-3 puzzler Bejeweled for free.
This customized version of Bejeweled leverages the Web 2.0 capabilities of Safari and the wireless capabilities of the iPhone, and has been optimized to take advantage of the iPhone's unique display and input controls. PopCap developed the Safari-based version of Bejeweled in partnership with Polish developer Arkadiusz Mlynarczyk, one of the first programmers to take advantage of the Apple iPhone's capabilities for video gaming purposes.
"We're excited to be providing the most popular puzzle game of the 21st century to users of the most advanced mobile device yet created," said Andrew Stein, Director of Mobile Platforms at PopCap. "We wanted to give the hundreds of thousands of iPhone users a fun, fast gaming fix -- and at no cost, no less."For more information head over to the site below.
PopCap's leadership role in the mobile gaming sector is reflected in several recent milestones, including the hiring of key mobile industry executives, establishment of direct partnerships with wireless carriers, and the recent launch of Chuzzle(TM) Mobile, the first mobile game that PopCap has developed and distributed directly. Bejeweled and Zuma(TM), two of PopCap's most popular games, have also been runaway successes on Video iPods since their introduction on those devices last year.
