App description: What do you get when you combine two phenomenal gaming concepts falling blocks (like Tetris/Tetromino) and match three (like Bejeweled)?

JuiceIt! An innovative and addictive casual puzzle game.

The objective of the game is to manipulate the blocks of fruits by moving each one sideways and rotating it by 90 degrees with the aim of matching three or more fruits of the same kind (horizontally or vertically).

As the game progresses, new sorts of fruit are added to the game, different powerdowns (iced blocks and crates with hidden fruit combinations) appear more and more frequently, and the game ends when the stack of fruits reaches the top of the playing area. There are a lot of different strategies to get the highest score.


Features:
Innovative combination of match three and falling blocks gameplay
beautiful prerendered graphics with realtime visual effects
endless gameplay - play for minutes or hours (the sky is the limit)
retina display graphics
universal binary - works on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch
Game Center leaderboards
1 classic + 4 other game modes
price: 0.99 USD

JuiceIt has 5 game modes:

CLASSIC MODE:
The objective of the game is to manipulate the blocks of fruits by moving each one sideways and rotating it by 90 degrees with the aim of matching three or more fruits of the same kind (horizontally or vertically).

You can also Tap on the fruit and swipe it horizontally (left or right) to swap it with its neighboring fruit. Fill as many pots as you can with fruit juice.

Powerup:
touch the rolling dice in right top corner to eliminate all the fruits of a kind. You get one powerup every 10.000 points.

Powerdowns:
Crates - you can see a crate falling, but you only find out what was inside after the crate lands and breaks apart.Frozen fruits - you can see a falling fruit block, but you can't rotate it.

OTHER MODES:
Mirror it will drive you crazy! Swipe down and it moves up, swipe up and it moves down, swipe left and it moves right, swipe right and it moves left.
Ice only frozen fruits are falling!
Box only crates of hidden fruits are falling!
Speed frenzy all the fruits are falling extra fast!


...I would highly recommend Juice It. It combines two of the best puzzle game mechanics and comes out with a completely unique product... Appadvice.com (4.5/5)

Game Impressions

Picked up and lets say it's pretty solid puzzler. Graphically nice, sound solid, controls need little work. For example, when switching (rotating) gets in the way of moving falling pieces. When I wanted to move (from left to right) piece set rotated instead. Can be frustrating in the long run.
Hope this gets fixed say maybe a rotate button or some sort of different gesture in the future. All in all a solid puzzler for the price and it's universal! Great job!

Agree with just about all points above. Controls should be tweaked and possibly other configuration options tested. Enjoyable though, overall, and darn close to a solid recommendation.

+1. I find the controls the most limiting factor.
