Chain-reaction game with social network push.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Sneezies wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Ease of Play
One touch to the screen is all it takes for bubbles to start popping.
Products & Purchases
The main screen has tabs for Crystal and Game Center, which advertise other games.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Sneezies is a puzzle game about figuring out how to start a chain reaction that will result in the most bubbles on a screen being popped. There is some strategy involved in where to place sneezing powder to start the cute bubble-encased creatures sneezing so that they pop out of their bubbles. The goal of each level is to pop a target number of bubbles. The game encourages use of Game Center or Crystal for challenging other players and viewing high scores. There's a Lite (free) version of this game that offers fewer features.

What’s It About?
Players choose between three different modes of play (Classic; Challenge; Free Popping). Then, touch the screen to \"drop\" sneezing powder to make the little Sneezies in the floating bubbles sneeze, and watch the chain reaction. Depending on where you touch, some Sneezies will pop and others won't. The goal is to pop as many as possible. In Free Popping (which could be for younger players or people who just don't want to think at all) simply pop the bubbles by tapping each one individually.
Is It Any Good?
In SNEEZIES, adorable little creatures are trapped in bubbles and they need the player to strategically place sneezing powder near a cluster of bubbles to start a chain reaction of sneezing and thus popping of bubbles. By freeing the Sneezies, you earn points. There are four different modes, including a separate Easy Mode for younger players, a Classic Mode with 45 levels, a harder Challenge Mode with 15 more levels, and a Score Ex Mode. In the Classic Mode, the 45 classic levels increase in difficulty, but the basic idea of placing the sneezing powder in a cluster of bubbles remains the same. This app is entertaining, but it does get rather repetitive after a while. It's unfortunate that the app repeatedly presents you with a button that leads to an ad for joining Open Feint. Parents of younger kids will need to police this a bit.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
