Ignition Entertainment and Denki announced that Quarrel will finally make its Xbox Live Arcade debut on January 25. The highly popular free iOS app will retail for 400 Microsoft Points.
Quarrel is a strategy game that pits players against each other in a battle for territorial control. Players are given eight random letters to come up with the highest scoring word possible. Each letter has a specific point value that is used to determine the overall value of the word. The player with the highest scoring word wins the battle and the territory. The game is won by controlling all territories on the board.
Unlike the iOS version of Quarrel, the XBLA iteration will feature online multiplayer for 2-4 players. However, the online functionality will only be available over Xbox Live with no option for local multiplayer.
