Yesterday PopCap Games, a worldwide leader in casual games, announced an agreement with – you guessed it – us, to offer their first Android games in the U.S. market, exclusively in the Amazon Appstore for Android. Today we’re happy to make Chuzzle (regularly $2.99) available for free.
Metacritic Game Reviews, Chuzzle for iPhone/iPad, A non-stop explosion of adorable matching action from PopCap, the makers of Bejeweled®!. Casual Game of the Year (DEMX Awards. Oct 09, 2019 Eight At Once – V1.10 for popping eight or more Chuzzles as one group (To get 8-at-once you need 8 Chuzzles of the same color all connected.) Chuzzle Bingo – for popping across the whole board with one color. Hundred Grand – for popping 100,000 Chuzzles. Ten Grand – for popping 10,000 Chuzzles. Dec 09, 2009 Chuzzle is the newest addition to their iPhone collection, and was just released in the App Store for $4.99. In Chuzzle it's another take on the match 3 genre by PopCap. Download Fruit Link Chuzzle Deluxe Match Line and enjoy it on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Fruit Link Match Three is a different match puzzle game. Totally unique functionality that is similar to the popular and frequent match 3 games, but totally different.
For the few people not familiar with Chuzzle, it’s a non-stop explosion of game action. Chuzzles burst when they get together in groups of three or more. The only way to “make them happy” is to pop them. Chuzzle is already a hit with iPhone users. Now, Chuzzle for Android features on-the-go gameplay action including four different modes, a “trophy room,” scrambles, and dynamic level generation.
What’s in it for you?
We’re continuing a steady drumbeat of exclusives and deals to wow customers, thus bringing new customers into the store and enticing existing customers to keep coming back. As we mentioned in last week’s post about Angry Birds Rio, the more customers we engage, the more opportunities there is to monetize your apps.
We’ve launched a marketing campaign for the exclusive Android launch of Chuzzle on the Amazon Appstore, and, spoiler alert, we’re preparing one for the impending exclusive Android launch of Plants vs. Zombies. Both Chuzzle and Plants vs. Zombies have a large and loyal iPhone fanbase, and Android users have been asking for these games.
Why do we do exclusives?
At Amazon, we start with the customer and work backwards. By bringing new apps and games to the Android marketplace first, we’re showing our customers we work hard to deliver some of hottest titles before they’re available anywhere else.
We think happy customers will be repeat customers, so for developers this means more chances to get apps, including exclusive apps, in front of the right audience. On an ongoing basis we’re also working to drive traffic to our store – and your apps.
When do we consider exclusives?
We are always looking for the next best thing, which is part of why we love our jobs – we get to play! We’re also monitoring what customers are saying about apps and the Amazon Appstore, including what else customers want. We look at exclusives on an opportunistic basis; some of our considerations are:
- Are the apps timely?
- Will our customers want them? Do they suit our core audience?
- Is the developer willing and able to help in the marketing of the exclusive?
- Is there a proven track record of success? (This is by no means a deal maker or breaker– we’re always trying to uncover new apps that we think will be runaway hits.)
Stay tuned for more on exclusives and cool opportunities – we’re just getting warmed up.
Chuzzle: it's a non-stop explosion of game action.
Chuzzles: well, they're adorable, cute, and cuddly. These googly-eyed little balls of fur giggle, squeak, and sneeze as you poke and push them across the grid. They're also explosive when they get together in a group of three or more. And there's only one way to make Chuzzels happy: pop 'em. Just slide, prod, and nudge the Chuzzles with a touch of the finger to match three or more (up and down, across, or both), and send fur flying and eyeballs bouncing. Once you start popping Chuzzles you might not be able to stop.
Arrange rows of Chuzzles so at least three colors of Chuzzles match, and watch them pop off the screen, racking up your score. Color-match the Giant Chuzzles, the Rainbow Chuzzels, and the Super Chuzzles for uproarious fur-flying fun and bonus scores. But watch out for Puzzle Locks and other ploys that can block your next move. Puzzle Locks freeze the row they appear in, making it really difficult to match nearby Chuzzles. Break free to boost your score with colorful cascades and combos. Every level offers three new patterns and more complex arrangements.
Chuzzle Deluxe For Ipad
There are four modes of play: go for high scores in Classic; slide Chuzzles into puzzle patterns in Mind Bender; race the clock in Speed; pop 'em all day in Zen.
