Denki Announces XBLA Puzzler, Quarrel

This is more of a reference for the UK readers this one... Ever seen Countdown on Channel 4? No? Where the hell have you been for 20 years? Anyway, Denki's recently announced arcade puzzler, Quarrel, is like Countdown, but without the numbers round and illuminating Rachel Riley, and more bright colours than Jason's Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
What the bloody hell am I harping on about? Quarrel of course; a 1-4 player Xbox Live Arcade game developed by Denki, that gives you jumbled up letters and challenges you to make the highest scoring words out of them... like Countdown.
It's not exactly like Countdown though... seeing as each letter has a points total (like Scrabble) and the points you earn in each round won't boringly add onto your score, oh no, they'll go towards leading your troops to victory in the island domination game that exists at the title's roots.
No release date set yet. In the meantime, check out the 6 new screens here. Beware, they're awfully bright. Here's one for you as well to test the ol' noggin out:
