Swoop Software recently announced the release of a new version of Kitty Spangles Solitaire, bringing it up to version 1.5. The new version includes a number of major changes including a new, reduced price, an improved interface, more gameplay options, and much more.

Designed for both Solitaire Professionals and casual gamers alike, Kitty Spangles Solitaire features:

• a fun, intuitive interface, making the game easy to play,
• automatic game saving, so you can play the game for as long as you like, whenever you want,
• a full scoring system, complete with a high score table. Try to beat your own scores, or, better yet, those of other players!

Battleground Europe Q&A
9:47 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Gamecloud has posted an interview with Playnet's Al Corey concerning the upcoming retail release of Battleground Europe. In addition to giving more details about Battleground Europe, Al Corey discusses how the World War II MMO combat game has evolved since the initial release, and he sheds some light on a possible expansion into the WWII North African Theatre. Below is a selected excerpt from the interview.

Gamecloud - How did the idea come about to create a new retail product call Battleground Europe?

Al Corey - Our first opportunity to release the game across Europe gave us a chance to regroup our retail effort. We knew the original "WWII Online- Blitzkrieg" wouldn't fly in many European countries plus we knew that the game had changed so substantially over the past 4 years that simply re-releasing it in the U.S. with the same title might keep people from having a look at it again.

The battles rage on once again on October 14, 2005 for $29.95. Please follow the links below for more information.

    World Of Warcraft Reviewed
    9:46 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

    Gaming Age recently posted a review of Blizzard's World of Warcraft, the world's most popular MMORPG. After examining the gameplay and leveling system, Gaming Age finds little to dislike about the game.

    Varying from astonishingly large red dragons to glowing undead abominations of reality; the vast number of monsters, bandits, animals and so forth in WOW is impressive by anyone's standards. There are large numbers of various monsters to fight, including bosses (some of whom are extremely difficult and provide a challenge that only 40 organised level 60 characters can overcome together), sub-bosses, magic users, healers, and so on. Every monster has its own beautifully crafted 3d model brimming with various flowing animations.
