Quarrel is coming to XBLA
Some of you maybe aware of Quarrel already, especially if you have an iPhone and have read this previous article on the game here at GhostStorm. Well here is some great news, the popular game is now heading to XBOX Live Arcade!UTV Ignition Games, together with developer Denki, is pleased to announce that the much-acclaimed and award winning “Quarrel” will be released on Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft Points on 25th January 2012.
Gary Penn, Creative Director/Denki said:
“AMAZING (24 points)! At last console owners will be able to revel in a full-on 3D HD Quarrel experience with exclusive ways to play, including the awesome Xbox LIVE multiplayer mode. I’m like a sugar-fuelled child on Christmas Eve and can’t wait to put my finely-honed word war skills to the test against the rest of the world.“
Quarrel combines the need for quick thinking, dictionary smarts, and a lot of guile. Whether you choose speed and fast reactions or slow methodical planning, the key to success is in the players’ control. Quarrel takes place on islands where two, three or four forces battle for total control of each island, which is split into territories – twelve levels across four differently themed environments. The aim of the game is simply to take over all the territories.
Success is achieved by creating the best scoring word from a selection of letters – each with a designated value. The length of the word you can make depends on how many troops you have on each territory. In the case of a tie, whoever made their word fastest is the victor. Deciding whether to attack, defend, retreat, transfer troops around, or reinforce your armies, while successfully winning the ongoing word challenges, will win the day.
Quarrel features full multiplayer for up to 4 players where you can take on your friends online.
Vip Patel, Sales Director UTV Ignition, “The Xbox 360 platform is the perfect platform for real-time Quarrelling and takes the height of battle to a whole new level – now it really is about who has the biggest dictionary.”
