A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Moving the Chuzzles around on the screen is intuitive, and the game happily offers hints to players who are stuck.

Violence & Scariness

Popping Chuzzles sends their fur and eyes flying, but there's nothing gory.

Sexy Stuff

A "more games" link takes users to a page with other apps from the developer.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Chuzzle is a puzzle game from the company behind Bejewled and Bookworm. By sliding the on-screen Chuzzles -- cute furballs with googly eyes -- around on screen, users try to match three or more to cause them to pop. On-screen combinations earn players bonus points. It's a very intuitive game, and the colors are light and cheery. Plus, the happy faces of the Chuzzles are somehow more engaging than the jewels or other non-animated objects used in many matching games. There are four game types, each a variation on the same general theme.

Too many bugs

Is it any good?

The team at PopCap Games knows how to make ultra-addictive, truly fun games -- and CHUZZLE is no exception. What's ironic about that is the similarities between this and the company's better-known Bejeweled are numerous (both are, at their heart, match-3 games), but ultimately Chuzzle feels unique. It's charming, engaging, and very well designed. The game slowly ramps up the difficulty, but at such a methodical pace that it never seems to get too hard. It's a bit expensive at $2.99 (but still worthwhile); keep an eye out for a bargain, as the game is sometimes discounted.
