Quarrel Brings Word Fun To XBLA

If you’re looking for a game that will show off your brilliant mind, then there’s no need to look any further. Quarrel, the critically acclaimed iOS word game, has made its way to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. The nice thing is that it’s only 400 Microsoft Points, or the equivalent of five American dollars. Not bad at all, if you ask me.

To win, players must compete against others (or the artificial intelligence), to string together eight-letter anagrams. The competitor with the best inner dictionary will be victorious, taking over island territories which dot the game world. Think of it as Scrabble-meets-RISK gameplay.

This Xbox LIVE Arcade version features:

Online, 1-4 player multiplayer
Nine diverse AI characters, each with its own unique personality and play style
12 different island maps and four gameplay modes to explore
Collins Official SCRABBLE Dictionary (2nd Edition 2007 © HarperCollins Publishers 2005, 2007)
Xbox LIVE features including leaderboards, achievements, in-game messaging and voice chat
Microsoft Avatar Support
Brand new single player challenge mode

Quarrel provides a great chance to find out who the smartest person in your circle of friends is, while having a good time doing so.

UTV Ignition Games, together with developer Denki, today announced the release of Quarrel on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The critically acclaimed word strategy game is available for 400 Microsoft Points.

Players fight for dominance over island territories using eight-letter anagrams to build the highest-scoring word possible. Quarrel for Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 includes the fun challenge of online multiplayer, supporting up to four players to prove who has the most lexical prowess. Players can also compete against nine unique AI in the classic Single Player mode, or take on the Challenge mode to take on extra mini-objectives within each battle.

Quarrel features:

• Online 1-4 Player Multiplayer
• Nine diverse AI characters, with unique personalities and play styles
