Apple adds games to iTunes
Apple today made two new iPod games available via its iTunes Music Store. The games -- Sudoku and Royal Solitaire -- are part of the company's Tuesday morning updates to the online storefront. Sudoku is a portable version of the Japanese logic-based puzzle game that features five levels of various difficulty. Players choose regular grid mode, or alternatively enter a puzzle from a favorite publication under newspaper mode. Royal Solitaire includes 10 versions of Solitaire, challenging players to test their skills with the "classic Canfield, the popular Klondike, or the easy-to-learn but difficult-to-master Pyramid," according to Apple. "Crisp graphics and simple, intuitive controls translate into hours of playing fun." Both games work with fifth-generation video iPods, and are priced at $4.99 each from the iTunes Music Store.
