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.

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.
