MArble blast is all flash and not much fun. And Astro pop or bewjewled is better on xbox 360 than the pc.
PopCap adds to library of downloadable games with space puzzler, now available for $10 worth of Marketplace Points.
Another game has been installed in the Xbox Live Arcade, as Xbox 360 owners can now download a demo or full version of PopCap Games' block-busting puzzle game AstroPop from the system's Marketplace.
Previously released on the PC and mobile phones, AstroPop requires players to fend off a rapidly descending wall of colored blocks. Players move a ship along the bottom of the screen, pulling blocks off the wall and putting them back up to match four or more of the same color, which destroys the cluster.
The Xbox 360 version of the game lets players unlock different characters and new weapons to help destroy the bricks. There's even a sci-fi storyline to accompany the action.
AstroPop is rated E for Everyone and sells for 800 Marketplace points, or $10.
I played this game on zone.com once. I did like it. The thing about zone.com is you can play things like Bejeweled and Astro Pop for free, with adverts. Microsofts bringing us Poker for free, with no adverts (except the name).
Didn't like it. Not gonna give my money for it. I like Marble Blast Ultra way more. Now that's entertainment for a cheap buck.
