Quarrel Coming To Xbox LIVE Arcade


UTV Ignition Games and Denki have today announced that the high popular iOS game, Quarrel is set to be released on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 400 Microsoft Points on January 25th.

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 four players, and also offers classic single player modes in which you can compete against nine computer controlled players, all of whom have unique personalities and play styles. Rex is methodical and plays great words, but takes his time so is vulnerable to trigger fingered players like Caprice (but she’s not got so good a vocabulary). Malik is a great all-rounder, but too many times he is bent on revenge and lets his pride cloud his judgement. Kali is an all round genius and should be challenged by expert players only and Dwayne is a simpleton. There’s also challenge mode, pitting you against the AI like never before, setting new mini-objectives of battle.

Other feature include the following:

  • Collins official Scrabble dictionary (2nd Edition 2007 HarperCollins Publishers 2005, 2007)
  • Social network features including leaderboards, achievements, in-game messaging and voice chat
  • Microsoft avatar support

To accompany the announcement, UTV Ignition Games and Denki have provided us with some screenshots for your viewing pleasure. Check them out below, and let us know what you think.
