Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Spinzizzle puts a new twist on the match-three subgenre of puzzle games. By spinning the board, a player causes colored balls to drop to the bottom of a wheel, where (hopefully) like-colored balls will touch one another and form a chain. Be aware that this app offers the option to connect to the OpenFeint online gaming community, which features live chat and opt-in location-sharing.

Is it any good?


There are so many match-three puzzle games out there, that new ones need a really imaginative twist or gimmick in order to stand out. SPINZIZZLE stands out. The gameboard is effectively a box of colored balls or marbles. By spinning it, you make those balls inside shift and fall. It's a very new and different way to think about movement -- with real physics at play. Spinzizzle offers a delightfully different experience for puzzle game fans.
