Poker Smash next on XBLA

Puzzle game with poker face.

Poker Smash will be the next game released on Xbox Live Arcade, developer Void Star Creations has revealed on its website.

Due out on 6th February, and reportedly set to cost 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60), Poker Smash is a poker-themed puzzle game.

But what does that mean, Internet? Apparently it sees cards moving up the screen in a Tetris-style play area, which you can dispose of by matching them into poker hands like flush, straight, four-of-a-kind, etc.

You're right, that actually sounds a lot more interesting than just another poker game - after all, we've already got Texas Hold 'em for that.

Look out for our review of Poker Smash around this time next week, and don't forget that we're also expecting Lode Runner and Brain Challenge in the near future.
