Puzzlejuice takes all of the elements of your favorite puzzle games and puts it into one convenient brightly colored package!
This game was designed to challenge both your spatial and verbal abilities and if you don’t feel overwhelmed then you might not be human. It’s a puzzle that will keep you hooked.
COME FOR THE PUZZLE. STAY FOR THE JUICE.
* HOW'S IT WORK? *
Multicolored BLOCKS constantly fall from the top of the screen and it’s up to you to arrange them. Once you complete a row with these blocks they will turn into LETTERS! The only way to clear out these blocks is to spell WORDS. Oh and also you can MATCH COLORS—that will make letters too.
* CORE MODE *
Test your endurance by seeing how long you can withstand the downpour. Complete objectives to unlock POWERUPS that will make you life easier as the game gets harder!
* ZEN MODE EXTREME *
Don't have a lot of time? Great! This mode is Zen because the blocks don't fall, so you don't have to worry about them piling to the top. This mode is EXTREME because you ONLY HAVE 90 SECONDS.
"LOCAL" MULTIPLAYER: There's a lot to do in this game so it's great to play with friends! One of you can sort the blocks while the others look for words. Divide and CONQUER.
PICTURE-IN-PICTURE: We've packed the same experience into both the iPhone and iPad, but we know that phones are small and thumbs are big, so when you start spelling a word on the phone, a preview pops up to show the letters underneath your fingers!
GAME CENTER: Challenge your friends or try to become the world's best Puzzlejuice Master!
DICTIONARY: Spell a word and don't know what it means? No problem, double-tap on a word to look it up.
FOREIGN LANGUAGES: Play the game in English, Spanish, French, Italian, or Dutch!
COLORBLIND SUPPORT: We've got you covered.
It’s not your mother’s word game; it has balls. Brass balls. Puzzlejuice is for closers.
What's New in Version 1.6.1
This is a small update. It only adds two things:
+ Working Twitter functionality in iOS6+
+ A link to our new game
The new game is called THREES. It's a tiny puzzle that'll grow on you. You may have heard a squawk or two on Twitter about it, we think it's pretty special. We've spent over a year on this tiny little puzzle game, agonizing over all the details until it felt perfect. Please take a look and let us know if you like it!
As always, none of my games will ask you for a review, so please take a moment and re-review puzzlejuice if you're still enjoying it :)
The reason I play puzzle games is to relax. Yes, I read the "punch your brain" description, but I didn't realize that simply translated to mean "timer hell." There's a reason many developers offer a "zen mode," and it's because without one, people like me would never play games at all.
This game's zen mode removes the dropping blocks, but adds a countdown timer to the whole game. How "zen" is that? News flash: If puzzle gamers enjoyed that kind of stress, we'd be platform gamers, too, but most are not, and this is why. We want to relax and think, not have something bombarding or pressuring us into action. That's not excitement; it's stress!
I'm disappointed, because I was looking forward to this game. My fault; I should have watched it online first. I hardly spent any time making words because I was too stressed over the falling blocks or timer. Bummer.
-2 stars for not considering your audience. Why not remove the timer from zen mode so everyone can be happy?
Interesting, if flawed, game
Threes was perfect.
This game takes the world of Threes and adds Tetris. Then, it adds words. Then it adds power ups. More isn't always better. The elements all feel good on their own, but sloppy controls make for some frustrating failures. Swipes can grab letters or slam pieces down by mistake.
Also, it's just not fun on the iphone. The letters are too small to accurately spell words. I don't even have beefy fingers. I have delicate little spaghetti-like digits. This is the first app that made me feel like I was slapping sausages at my screen.
Also, you can't write your name for high scores. But, that's obvious.
Update: Played the iPad version. It’s worse. The controls are even sloppier. Mistakes I make against a fair challenge make a game fun. Block slamming when I mean to move them and vice versa just makes a game not fun to play.
Great game; needs fixes
After I purchased "THREES" I thought you folks could do no wrong.
Presentation and innovative as threes Puzzlejuice on my iPad mini has problems, minor and major.
Minor: the default name cannot be changed . The keyboard comes up. The letters work but backspace to erase the default name doesn't. Like in Tetris, there should be the option to not have the ghost pieces.
Major: The left-right control is way to sensitive, making the
piece land exactly where I DON'T want it at the last moment.
Finally, every so often, maybe one out of 20 times but happens every game, the tap to rotate piece doesn't work at all, causing me to strike my innocent iPad mini.
An update addressing these issues would be most appreciated and will get a new review with 5 stars.
