Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pizarro is a jazz-themed arcade game that involves touching the screen to create circles to cover a certain percentage of the playfield while avoiding ricocheting obstacles. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is strictly optional.
Is it any good?
PIZARRO isn't the first game to feature such a play mechanic, but the way it infuses jazz music and stylish black and white graphics into the mix sets it apart as something special. As players complete levels of ever-increasing difficulty, a bass thumps out a 12-bar blues in the background, and every action results in piano and trumpet flourishes that give the impression that the player is improvising jazz music while playing the game. It's a simple concept that shines thanks to solid gameplay and a cool aesthetic.
