Chertsey, UK– December 10th 2007– Electronic Arts (NASAQ: ERTS) today announced that block-clearing puzzle game, Block’d is now available for the mobile platform across Europe. A compelling and easy to use line-clearing puzzle game, Block’d continues the legacy of fun casual game experiences from EA Mobile™, which also offers Tetris® for mobile handsets.
Created for the casual mobile gamer, Block’d boasts eye-catching graphics and two different game modes to mix up the fun. In marathon mode, players are tasked to clear the entire grid before the moves run out or have their heart points depleted. In speed mode, players step things up a notch and blast blocks against the clock. Wildcards, bombs, and lightning blocks also add to the fun and increase the player’s chances of successfully completing tough levels.
“Block’d is a great addition to our casual games portfolio. It’s simple to pick up and play, yet challenges players enough to have them come back again and again to reach those high scores,” commented Tim Harrison, European Marketing Director, EA.“We're very excited to offer another innovative puzzle challenge to mobile gamers."
