New Offical Starcraft 2 Custom Game: Starjeweled
The game is a pretty simple 2v2 setup, the map is one long strip with a command building at each end and two sets of two cannons along the way for each team. The goal is to beat your way through your opponents cannons and destroy their building. You do this by spending energy on units which will automatically spawn from your command building and head towards your opponents, you can also buy and cast spells like psi-storm or a heal. Basic marines will constantly spawn from your building to act as cannon fodder. The twist is that you must gain energy by playing Bejeweled on the right side of your screen; the better combos you get the more energy you get and thus more units.
The game takes a lot of attention and focus, because not only must you play Bejeweled like mad to gain energy but you also have to be paying attention to the battlefield to spawn appropriate counters to the units your opponents are spawning. I often found myself spending too much time surveying the battlefield deciding what counters to spawn that I fell behind in energy. Overall it's a lot of fun!
