I’m the first to admit that I like playing video and digital games—not long drawn-out affairs for hours at a time, mind you, but short sweet, 15-minute-break types of games. And I also fully admit that I’ve been a fan of PopCap Games for a long time: Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled, Bookworm, and the like. So when PopCap let me have an early look at some of their new games coming out later this year (watch the magazine for more details), they knew what they were doing when they also sent their newest game, Solitaire Blitz.
It’s simple, really, but therein lies the appeal: race the clock to try and clear all your cards while earning bonuses and treasures. Did I mention already that it’s addictive? “It’s my turn!” was the fairly consistent refrain at my house the last few nights as the boys and I all anxiously awaited our turns. The game really is that perfect little break—whether it be a fifteen minute homework or housework break. And did I mention it’s free? Score!Add a Comment
