Fuze was just selected as Gaming App Of The Day by Kotaku, so hopefully that means I did something right :-)

Gameplay: The main objective of Fuze is to tap on bombs before they explode, so you'll be playing with a tap scheme. The controls within the game deliver a solid gameplay experience. The tapping was always smooth, and I never experienced any sort of lag or delay. Throughout the game, I never had to double tap a bomb because they always exploded on the first tap.

Where I do fault the gameplay is in it's stock mode, the game's version of survival mode, as it left me wanting more. Stock mode never really seemed to give me a challenge, no matter how far I progressed, but was still moderately entertaining. luckily, there are two more fun and exciting game modes; a timed mode and a challenge mode to fill the minor void that stock mode might leave you.

Graphics: It's a good looking, no frills, sketchbook design. Colors only pop onto the screen when a bomb explodes or is close to exploding.

Audio: The game is accompanied by solid sound effects, but doesn't have any in-game music; but it doesn't need any. Just play Pandora or your music library in the background and you will have a delightful time defusing bombs.

Ultimately, if your'e looking for your next time filler; I would definitely recommend this game.
