Big Fish Launches "Fairway Solitaire Blast" on Mobile Smartphones and Tablets

New chapter added to the "Fairway Solitaire" franchise!

SEATTLE, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Fish, the world's largest producer of casual games, today announced the availability of Fairway Solitaire Blast on smartphones and tablets.  Blast is a new chapter designed to give Fairway Solitaire fans a reason to have two unbreakable solitaire addictions. With new arcade-style power-ups, social play, and more hand-crafted solitaire layouts, Blast complements the core card-flipping action that earned Fairway Solitaire multiple "Game of the Year" nominations while creating its own addictive experience.

To advance through Blast, players need to combine their solitaire know-how with their inner arcade player. It's solitaire, so players must play all of the cards to pass each level. Challenges are layered in and require players to play cards in a specific fashion. To help out with these tasks, an array of power-up cards are at the player's disposal, such as a gopher with a card-destroying laser blaster, wild card and more. Use power-ups strategically to complete challenges and watch your score blast off!

Additionally, if you're like the millions of other players who can't put this game down, why not invite your friends to join in the fun? Post the highest score for each hole and let your friends know who owns the fairway. Want to share lives? Give them to your friends! Big Fish is also deep into the development of tournaments where players can play against each other to win rare and powerful in-game prizes.

In the two years it has been available, Fairway Solitaire has cemented itself as the top-grossing solitaire game available. Its dedicated fans keep coming back for the daily content and to deal with McDivot, the game's dastardly gopher. The daily content has proven key to the game's incredible long-term success, keeping players wanting more even two years after its initial launch! And with the launch of Fairway Solitaire Blast, Big Fish introduces a way to have two favorite solitaire games!

Fairway Solitaire Blast is launching simultaneously on the iTunes Store, Google Play, and Amazon on April 3rd in eight languages.

Go on...Have a Blast!
