One of the most recognised brands in online casual gaming extends its reach today, as EA releases a free Pogo Games app in the iTunes App Store. The Pogo app includes Poppit!, Word Whomp, Turbo 21, Mahjong Safari, and Sweet Tooth 2, five of the service’s most popular games. The app is ad-supported, though players can upgrade to an ad-free version for $3.99. Players that are already members of Club Pogo can enter their login information to receive the ad-free treatment as well.
“We’ve been entertaining audiences for more than 10 years, and that experience has given us a deep understanding of the types of games that engage people and keep them coming back for more,” said Michael Marchetti, SVP & GM Pogo at Electronic Arts. “With the move to iPhone and iPod touch, we’re giving people new ways to play, share and compete-now any moment can turn into a fun moment.”
Pogo was probably the first place I played a browser-based game on the internet proper, so it holds a special place in my heart. Will I download this app? Hell no. My bathroom time is busy enough as it is.
