It’s no secret that Microsoft has been trying to get more casual gamers to pick up the Xbox 360. In keeping with this, it seems that there are plans to introduce three new puzzle games to the Xbox Live Arcade. The games, namely: Peggle, Bliss Island, and Ultra-Bust-a-Move have already been rated by the ESRB for the said console.
Peggle, a downloadable game from PopCap Games, has already been confirmed for the Xbox Live Arcade by the developers. The game is deceptively simple. In a nutshell, players have to bounce balls off various pegs and obstacles to clear a level.
Codemasters and PomPom’s Bliss Island (also available on PSP, PC) puts gamers in the shoes of a Zwooph named Hoshi. As a Zwooph, you have the ability to fire compressed blasts of air. Expect to make constant use of that power as you try to clear the various mini-games this title has to offer.
Finally, we have Ultra-Bust-A-Move from Majesco and Taito. Unlike the previous games which debuted on the PC, this title was originally released on the Xbox so this might be released as part of the Xbox Originals.
Peggle, Bliss Island, and Ultra-Bust-A-Move have each drawn a solid following from PC gamers. Will the popularity of these game continue on a new platform? We’ll have to wait and see.
