PopCap Games Officially Launches Solitaire Blitz
PopCap Games today announced the official global launch of Solitaire Blitz, the company’s latest social game available on the Facebook platform. The aquatically themed social card game debuted in February through a gradual beta launch before becoming available to the entire Facebook user base today.

In Solitaire Blitz, players compete with friends to discover a whole new world of solitaire in a fast-paced treasure hunt. By matching cards quickly using an up-and-down sequence, they race to clear the decks in 60 seconds and collect treasures to earn silver, the in-game currency redeemable for boosts (power-ups). Immersive environments inspired by early 20th century art and literature are accompanied by a stunning orchestral score, creating a unique gaming environment unlike anything else on Facebook.

“We’ve taken the world’s most well-known card game and created an exciting new social version using PopCap’s incredibly popular time-based Blitz mechanic made famous by Bejeweled Blitz and Zuma Blitz,” said Scott Willoughby, marketing manager for PopCap Games. “We’ve evolved a traditionally solitary pastime into a friendly, shared experience that’s fun for all ages.”
