GREAT NEWS! We're going to keep the game free today to continue to build on the great public response we got yesterday!

So, download and enjoy the game!

I like Spazzle, its superior to the paid & licensed Whack-a-mole game in my book. For what it is, its very well done.

However, I'm not too sure there is much reason to "upgrade" to the DLC version except to support the developer, since it looks like all that really changed is that Spazzle I and II were combined, with additional DLC skins available (only 1 for now).

I dont notice any graphical or sound changes. I'm sure they are there, but just not such a big deal. There do seem to be some actual gameplay tweaks (at times a huge number of moles pop up all at once), but the gameplay in Spazzle I and II were already fine, and this seems basically the same.

I dont really like giving my kids apps with DLC in them because there have been some accidents in the past, so I'm not going to keep Spazzle gold, but if you dont have a Spazzle game, and dont have my issue with DLC, no reason not to go for it.

Thanks ArtNJ!

There were indeed changes beyond adding Spazzle I and II into the same game We introduced a completely new achievement system with skill-based awards, coins and high scores for each world in addition to adding Plus+. We also added the 3rd world, Stormy Seasons (DLC/IAP), which contains all new music, critters, levels, bonus items and 4 surprise special effects! The underlying game was also rewritten from scratch to be faster, cleaner and much more addicting The difference in the game's speed should really be noticeable!

Anyway, we're hard at work now on new worlds which we'll add in the near future (underwater world and a pink party themed world coming next). In future updates, we'll always try to include unlockable worlds in addition to the DLC/IAP ones

Thanks for checking out Spazzle!
