PopCap Games is prepping the mobile version of its highly acclaimed Bejeweled Twist puzzle game for release in the second quarter of 2009. Bejeweled Twist will be PopCap's fourth in-house title in its series of games for cell phones.

"Gamers anxiously awaited the launch of Bejeweled Twist on the PC, and it has more than lived up to players' expectations, which is why we're thrilled to bring an amazingly accurate translation to the mobile market, featuring all the same game modes and challenges as the original," said Andrew Stein at PopCap.

"The mobile version is well suited for gaming on-the-go, offering four distinct ways to play from fast-paced action and strategy to a stress-busting, Zen-like experience."

Bejeweled Twist Mobile is expected to support touch screen phones.
