App description: This award-winning board game transfers seamlessly to the iPad. USA TODAY (4/4)

The award-winning hit board game from Mattel arrives on the iPad for an even more true-to-life experience than ever! Enjoy the iPad exclusive Pass & Play mode where you and your friends can all play around one device, just like the real game! (Except here, you wont lose any blocks under a table!)

You liked UNO? You are going to LOVE Blokus!

RULES ARE SIMPLE!
The winning strategy: Block your opponents so they cannot add anymore blocks on the board! Blokus is a strategy game that will captivate you and get into your mind.

4 GAMES IN ONE
Each game variation requires a totally different strategy:
4 players control one color each
2 players control two colors each
4 players play in teams
Blokus Duo: There are only 2 colors, the board is smaller and the start position is in the middle of the board.

MULTIPLAYER MODE
Compete in any of these game variations through:
- Pass & Play mode, only on the iPad!
- Local Multiplayer via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
- Online Multiplayer via Wi-Fi
Compare your scores on leader boards on Gameloft LIVE!

CAREER MODE
Try to win different cups from Discovery to Legend.

CUSTOMIZATION FEATURES
You can set the difficulty level and time limit for each move, making each game a new experience.

A COLOR BLIND MODE
Icons added on the pieces allow color blind people to play.

Computer Opponents?

After reading the description on iTunes I can't tell if there is a single player option with computer opponents. Does anyone know whether this option exists?

Thanks

I'm sure it has single player but it surely doesn't mention it. I'm gonna wait for confirmation on the single player though before buying. Are there any Gameloft rep's on this site?

I decided to grab this one too - it looks like it might be a real fun game for the iPad. The graphics look nice, too...
