Game Impressions

I was lucky enough to get a promo code for this and it is a very polished and fun match 3 type game. I have played a bunch of match 3 style game including a few somewhat similar to this, but Freezing Birds has a lot of personality and stands out.

One issue I have is that a couple of the different bird types have similar colors making it slightly difficult to distinguish them, at least for a color blind person like me.

I think any game of this type calls for leader board support, so I hope the developer adds GameCenter support.

Also, some of the graphics and sound assets strongly remind me of one of my favorite match 3 games, Birrzle Pandora. Regardless of those surface similarities, the two games play quite differently.

Thanks for your review. I will fix the color distinguishability issue in the next update as while as GameCenter supporting. Birrzle truly excited me to make a match 3 game. I hope those similarities don't violate any thing.

I posted a review for you on the app store as well. I am always glad to do so for the games I enjoy.

Thanks for considering the changes I mentioned. To clarify on the colors I have issues with here, it between the two red colored birds and it is pretty minor for me. I think if I was playing in a darkened room, I would never hesitate between those 2 shades at all.

I am looking forward to playing Freezing Birds more and I am excited for future updates.
