12:03 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

MacPlay today announced that it will be publishing the Mac versions of PopCap’s popular puzzle games, Bejeweled andAlchemy. The games will ship as a bundle to retail in early June for about $20 and are currently available for preorder at MacPlay's web site.

Here's a description of both games from the MacPlay press release:

Bejeweled and Alchemy have been enjoyed by millions of online players, and soon they will be available on the Mac. The Macintosh version is even more enjoyable than the online version and includes new features, sound effects and music, completely new game modes and spectacular high-resolution graphics. Gamers from around the world who have played the game on various gaming platforms have enthusiastically praised the titles with glowing reviews.

Bejeweled, enjoyed over 12 million times online, is a fast paced gem-matching puzzle that will keep players coming back again and again. Players swap gems on the board to align at least three gems in a row, either horizontally or vertically, to collect points and make the collection disappear while more gems fall into place. In Alchemy, the player must transform the ordinary into the invaluable in an addictive, brain-tickling puzzle. The ancient art of alchemy involves the transformation of worthless metals into glittering gold. Throughout history, most have failed, but stories have materialized of mystical wizards who discovered the secrets of this ancient art.
Be on lookout for reviews of these titles in the weeks to come on Inside Mac Games. For more information, be sure to visit the MacPlay web site.
