    PRAISE FROM THE PRESS
    ChuChu Rocket! was a total blast when I had a chance to play it today, and it makes me sad that I never tried out this title almost a decade ago. It seems like a perfect fit for the iPhone, with all of the original levels reworked to be touch screen friendly – touchArcade.com

    Gathering up four friends for a manic game of Chu Chu Rocket is a cherished gaming memory. The version of Chu Chu Rocket I was able to play today at SEGA's offices pretty much matched up with those memories – IGN.com

    Chu Chu Rocket will command attention by virtue of being different from the steady string match-three puzzlers and its multiplayer push. Even though it can't claim innovation as a port of an older title, there's still a sense of freshness and certainly an appeal about this game of cat and mouse. – PocketGamer.com

    There's a reason ChuChu Rocket is a classic, and this port shows why.

    ChuChu Rocket! is just one of the best puzzle games around, much as it was 10 years ago on the Dreamcast, and with the new touch interface it actually succeeds at being the definitive version to own.

    Whether alone or with friends, Chu Chu Rocket retains the magic of the original and stamps its mark firmly on the iPhone puzzle scene.

    Despite the competition though, this ten-year-old game shows no signs of fatigue, and still feels fresh to this day. The game promises more levels and features through updates, which can only improve the gameā€¦ especially for seasoned ChuChu-veterans like myself.

    Poorly upscaled visuals and a price wholly out-of-step with what you'd expect.

    ChuChu Rocket! is a totally solid puzzle game, and it really does shine in multiplayer (especially if you can get four people gathered around an iPad for some same-device multiplayer). The game feels like it was always meant for a touch screen device, so I just hope that Sega can push out an update so everyone can enjoy this zany game for what it's meant to be.

    Never really takes of the ground, but should kill a couple of hours.

It encourages problemsDear parents, ChuChu Rocket is a great and engaging family friendly game that both you and the children will enjoy. It encourages problems solving, logic, and more. The amount of content is above and beyond what I was use to at this price. This game is very fun! I highly recommend parents get this for themselves and their children. Expand
