EA Takes DS to Pogo Island

Pogo IslandContinuing the ongoing trend of online casual games heading to portable gaming platforms, EA has announced Pogo Island, a new puzzle game compilation in development by EA Canada exclusively for the Nintendo DS that will feature five of the most popular games from leading casual gaming site Pogo.com. The five Pogo titles include Word Whomp, Poppit!, Phlinx, Tri-Peaks Solitaire, and Squelchies, all of which have been designed under the “easy to learn but challenging to master” casual game mantra.

“Millions of people have been captivated by these simple, yet addictive casual games. We’re so excited to finally bring the online experience to players on the go,” said Kevin Chorney, Producer of Pogo Island. “Whether you are playing with the kids on a road trip or just killing time while waiting in line, Pogo Island takes your mind off work, stress and the craziness of everyday life. Now, people young and old can enjoy some brain-busting fun wherever they are, whenever they want.”
