iPod: Crystal Defenders, Chinese Checkers, Trivial Pursuit
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Three new game titles for Apple's iPod multimedia devices have been added to the iTunes store. The offerings this time include Crystal Defenders, Chinese Checkers, and Trivial Pursuit.

Crystal Defenders:

The premise of Crystal Defenders is simple: deploy popular units from Final Fantasy Tactics A2 to fend off encroaching enemy hordes and prevent them from stealing your party's crystals. Players can experience more than 200 stages of action in one of two different game versions: W1 and W2. In W1, players can learn game basics and hone their skills. In W2, players will face bigger, meaner mobs, while the introduction of power crystals opens new doors, allowing for deeper, more detailed strategies. Easy-to-learn controls and up-tempo play make Crystal Defenders accessible at home and on the go.

Monsters march until they are defeated or reach an exit, at which time they will steal one or more crystals
A wave is cleared if crystals remain after all monsters have been defeated or have escaped the area
Two game versions (W1, W2) provide challenges across more than 200 unique stages
