Popcorn, Dragons, What’s Not to Love in PopCap’s New iOS Game

on October 13, 2011 9:00 AM

Peggie and Bejeweled creators PopCap are preparing to release a new game for the iPad and iPhone this winter: Popcorn Dragon. And it’s as scaly and delicious as you imagine it is.

PopCap parent company Electronic Arts announced the game yesterday in the hum of announcements preceding New York Comic Con. Players use their fingers to move a dragon around the screen, using its fire-breathing powers to cook popcorn kernels. Once the kernals or popped, the dragon can turn around and gobble them up. But alas, your dragon cannot munch his treats in peace; various villains try to stun your dragon, a different deterrent assigned to each level. These snack attackers include ghost and cannonball-laden pirates.
