The Xbox 360 is about to get another online poker game, as Poker Smash is headed to Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday. The game will set you back 800 Microsoft Points.
Poker Smash is a puzzle game with a poker twist in which players rush to clear rows of cards by arranging them into poker hands. Poker Smash also offers card-blasting bombs and a super slow-motion trigger for players caught in a bind.
Poker Smash features seven game modes: action, timed, puzzle, practice, custom playlist, split screen head-to-head and multiplayer tournaments. It also includes more than 30 minutes of original music.
For Xbox Live Achievement junkies, Poker Smash contains 12 Achievements totaling 200 Achievement Points. Among the Achievements are “Score of the Gods,” which requires gamers to reach 1,000,000 points; “The Thinker,
which requires gamers to unlock all puzzle groups; and “Pack Rat,” which is awarded after gamers unlock all 11 in-game themes.
To celebrate the launch of Poker Smash on Xbox Live Arcade, players can participate in the Poker Smash Play & Win Sweepstakes, in which one grand prize winner will receive an Xbox 360 Elite console. Four other winners will be selected to receive Microsoft Point cards.
