-----------------------

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 dont feel overwhelmed then you might not be human. Its 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 its 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 COLORSthat 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.

--------------------

Its not your mothers word game; it has balls. Brass balls. Puzzlejuice is for closers.

I've had a couple of weird glitches. For instance, this block had an O and an I in it and was stuck in this position.

Glad to hear that. By the way, it just crashed on me mid-game.

The game looks and plays great, but it does seem to act unresponsive and glitchy occasionally. And I wish the music looping/transitions were a bit more seamless. Still, great game. I love it.

I keep getting ice and drill power ups as soon as I start the game (I.e. the first block that drops has a drill on it). Is this intentional?

Kinda shocked that this thread doesn't have 50 pages by now. This is so good.

the ice/power-drill powerup on load might be a factor of your current level in puzzlejuice. like if you play on hard mode, i know there are a lot more assurances that you'll get more goodies early, same with letter placement. there's a lot of behind-the-scenes tuning with the various layers of invisible difficulty.

i'm not the programmer though, so i don't know for sure.

Really enjoying this one as well. Like SpellTower, the game probably controls slightly better on the iPad but is still quite playable on the smaller screen.

There's a tremendous amount of polish and depth to the game, right down to the typography (I'm thinking it's Futura?).

Anyhow, puzzle game enthusiasts of the word, matching, or falling blocks variety should definitely give this one a try.

I'm curious but is it stable at this point?

Does the smaller screensize of the iphone/ipod create any difficulties for this game?
