PopCap Games Coming to Palm Pre, Android Handsets



Hello, my name is Kevin, and I’m a Peggle addict. I play it on my PC, my iPhone (s AAPL) and my Xbox 360 (s MSFT). Soon I might be able to play it on my Palm Pre (s PALM), and so will you. PreCentral caught wind of an audio interview in which Garth Chouteau, the senior PR director of PopCap Games, said:

“We have plans to support the Pre, as well as Android. There are games in the works for those devices.”

Now I wouldn’t call these definitive plans by any means, but “in the works” sounds pretty promising to me. Of course, if you don’t like Peggle, Chouteau could be referring to Bejeweled, Zuma, Chuzzle or any one of the many games PopCap offers. As far as the timing for any games, Chouteau did say that the installed user base plays a part in planning development strategies. That’s to be expected of course, and doesn’t bode well for Palm Pre owners. There are far more Google Android (s GOOG) handsets out there that Palm Pre devices, not to mention a new Android device outed just today. While I wait, I’ll just recite my mantra:  I will be a Peggle Master on the Pre… I will be a Peggle Master on the Pre…

Almost six months later, and not a sign of Pre games from PopCap. Looks like this will go the way of the “Microsoft is developing for the Amiga!” rumors of two decades ago — much wishful-thinking, zero reality.


We need more games asap I got the pre when it first came out and I’m dyin for games

Pre Palm owners will be delighted with this news for they’re already exhausted on the only two current webOS gaming choices, Connect4 and Sodoku. Whew! Don’t you have an estimated time when it will be released?


Don’t forget the awesome “Speed Brain”.

In all seriousness though, it’s worth it to root the Pre if only to get some of the homebrew games like Othello, DotGame, and Solitaire on your Pre.


I’m a Peggle addict too. And it seems to be the only app that didn’t retains my settings (scores) when I upgraded from gen 1 iPhone to 3GS on Sunday – damn!
