Potpourrii from Chillingo is out...

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=313481612&mt=8


Just saw this twittered and couldn't see a thread for it. It's only 0.59p so might give it a bash later today.

On second thoughts I just found out it's also a wiiware game and only scored 5/10 on ign. Come on Chillingo, you usually pick the wheat from the chaff.

Hmm... any gameplay video?

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

From the IGN page: "Unlike most Match Three games, like colors don't match up and disappear. Instead, the idea is to chain up similar colors, then remove them with the one color that will remove them. The game pieces are based upon the four seasons of the year, with the succeeding season overtaking the preceding one: Spring removes Winter, Winter removes Fall, Fall removes Summer, and Summer, you guessed it, takes out Spring."

I know, I was laughing at myself, thanks for your responce

I just loved this kind of games back then and was wondering until now why there is no such a game for iPhone... but I was so used to "match (number) pattern" that gameplay video was unobvious to me (why different colors? ice in the water don't obstruct anything?)...

I will buy Potpourrii sometime this weekend...
