    Puzzlejuice is fantastic. It's a game that can be played in a hardcore marathon session, or simply for a few minutes while you're waiting to catch a flight. No matter which device you play it on it looks wonderful, and it strikes the perfect combination of block and word puzzles to keep you challenged.

    Capitalizing on the recent flow of word games seems to have paid of. Puzzlejuize is a great blend between Tetris and Boggle, and mixing spelling and stacking becomes second nature after a little while.

    Puzzlejuice may ultimately be too hectic and exhausting to stay on the front page of your iDevice forever, but it's the perfect game for an unhealthy binge every few days. Enjoy it as much as you can, and try not to burn yourself out for good.

    A fun and diverting puzzler, Puzzlejuice offers a new style of play, but doesn't quite have the chops to back up its brain-punching claims.

    I'd say it's a pretty demanding puzzle game, especially when English isn't your first language like in my case (after all you have to find words within a mess of letters in a pretty short time and especially long words can be tough here). Not really the game I'm going for when I'm looking for a casual distraction (in this case 'Threes!' is the better choice I think) but still a highly interesting mixture that brings a lot of variety in gameplay and can be quite challenging! Plus there are several play modes here, which is also nice to have. But still I'd appreciate a German version for this one though and hopefully the developers will consider that idea ! Expand
