This is just a heads up, but a new development team, Grip Games, is currently working on a mini that includes 5 games in 1 (hence the title). The games, according to a press release, include:
…Solitaire, the world’s favorite card game, Pairs, a memory-based puzzle game, Tetroid, a fast-paced block breaker game, 15 Puzzle, a classic “complete a picture” puzzle game and 8ball Pool, the most played version of this billiards game, there is something for everyone.
Going by the gameplay trailer above, the Tetroid one looks like a cross between Breakout, Tetris and Pong (and would probably be the title’s biggest draw). This is also one of the minis that will be playable on the PS3 as well. It includes medals, records, and even Facebook and Twitter updates as well (it’s pretty feature packed for being a mini.)
We’ll be reviewing this title in the near future, thanks to Grip Games giving us the opportunity (possibly making a new Review section strictly for minis? We’ll see). Be sure to read the press release and check out the screenshots if you’re interested!
