"At long last, a Qix clone that gets it right. Spot-on controls, beautiful background images, and great music make this THE choice for discerning gamers on iPhone." -- the hanging chad (4/5)
"Redefines game addiction. I was just hooked from the first few seconds. It is hypnotic and fun! - sylviod (5/5)
"Sparkz is currently my son’s favorite iPhone game and quickly becoming one of my favorites too. It’s one of those simple concepts that’s executed well and will totally suck you in." - theiphonemom.com
"Sometimes it seems as if iPhone app games can be firmly planted in one of very few categories, as if they all follow the same template but with a little twist. This, however, is the first time I’ve played a game that I can honestly say is unlike any other I’ve played before." - theiphoneappreview.com (8/10)

Great update to Sparkz on OS 9!
I loved playing Sparkz on my old pre-OS X Macs and this version is great with its finger controls (I'm still not adept enough to play it using the accelerometer). I still keep my old 12" PowerBook running Tiger mainly to play Sparkz under Classic OS! Every version is very addictive. The only thing I don't like about the iOS version is the background photos, which I think are a distraction -- I would welcome the option of replacing those with user photos or even just a plain black background in a future version. If I've ever got a few minutes to kill or if I want to clear my mind, there's no other app better than Sparkz on my iPad!
Great retro fun with a modern flair
This is an homage to the genre, and not a copy. That is a strength in my view. I am enjoying the, to me, beautiful electronic soundtrack and the background pictures when a level is completed. It starts easy enough, but it ramps up significantly in difficulty. This makes it fun for me. The online scoreboard (Agon), is well done and works well with the title. I will add more when I have more of a chance to play this game.
Love the idea, hate the controls
The swipe gesture is not implemented right. It doesn't move where I tell it to go half the time. Please implement other move options. I like games that let me tap on 1 of the 4 edges to move in that direction. The accelerometer options is not appropriate for a game where quick reflexes and precise movements are needed. The swipe default option might work if it were implemented better and not so sensitive to microscopic finger movements.
