Sparkz was featured in the "WHAT'S HOT" section and the "STAFF FAVORITE" section of the App Store!

Territorial war has been declared between the Sqix and the Stix!

You control the diamond shaped Stix moving safely along the Arena borderlines. You must venture inside the Arena to capture sections of it by tracing straight lines while avoiding the deadly rotating arcs of the Sqix.

This action game requires dexterity as well as wit.

"Sparkz is currently my sons favorite iPhone game and quickly becoming one of my favorites too. Its one of those simple concepts thats executed well and will totally suck you in." - theiphonemom.com

"Sometimes it seems as if iPhone app games can be firmly planted in one of very few categories, as if they all follow the same template but with a little twist. This, however, is the first time Ive played a game that I can honestly say is unlike any other Ive played before." - theiphoneappreview.com (8/10)
