TiQal is a new puzzle game where players demolish enemy block walls by matching squares of the same color and building them up to unleash combo points and power-ups. TiQal will launch on Xbox Live Arcade this Wed., March 26, 2008 at 9:00 a.m. GMT (1:00 a.m. PDT) together with an updated version of Switchball that delivers enhanced graphics for a smoother gameplay experience and enhanced leaderboards!

With graphics inspired by the ancient Mayan culture, “TiQal” takes players on an epic journey to save the village of the same name. Players must demolish enemy block walls by matching squares of the same color and building them up to unleash massive combo points and mind-blowing power-ups.

In TiQal, you have been chosen to make an epic journey through many obstacles to seek the help of the gods. The village of TiQal is in deep trouble! Destroy the block walls in your way by moving your magic Dropper left and right, rotating blocks, and dropping them into place to create squares of color. Build up multiple squares to score bonus points and unlock helpful power-ups. Do you have the skill and courage to complete your quest and save TiQal from certain destruction?

“TiQal” features 120 levels of easy to learn, yet difficult to master gameplay and 14 formidable power-ups, as well as multiplayer support for up to two players.
