Swatches for iPhone/iPod

TableStar has released a new beta version of Swatches, a game specifically designed for the interfaces of the iPhone and iPod touch, although it can also be played through desktop browsers such as Safari or Internet Explorer. Gamers attempt to control a gameboard by creating the largest block of color; this is done by dropping tiles, which must be arranged to close off a "swatch" of a uniform color. Unlike most iPhone games however, it can be played against both AI and human opponents, up to a maximum of six. It also supports real-time chat, in-game and through the match lobby.

To play at the moment, gamers must register to participate in the beta, which is free; there is no word on what the final game might cost. Also, while Swatches is web-based, it still takes approximately 30 seconds for an iPhone or iPod to download the necessary content.
