As promised, the Bing “entertainment experience” is getting into gear with updates for music, tv, movies, and now more games, too. According to this post on the Bing blog, those searching for free games on Bing have several new options, including Belle's Beauty Boutique, Carniball,Fishdom Spooky Splash, Jigsaw, 8 Ball Champion, Pyramid Solitaire and Gardenscapes.
But don’t worry if you’re not sure what game to search for by name – I discovered that you can simply type in “games” into Bing and the top result will link you directly to the Games themselves (click either the link’s heading or just “Play Now.”) Here you’ll find all the games housed on Bing, like the ever-popular Bejeweled, for example, and Plants vs. Zombies, just to name a couple.
The bing.com/games site also groups games into categories like “most popular,” “action favorites,” “puzzle favorites,” “word favorites,” and more, so you can find just the sort of game you’re looking for, even if you don’t know what it’s called.
