Puzzlejuice

We’ve all seen puzzle games that involve colored blocks falling from the top of the screen, in need of arranging to clear them. We’ve all seen games that provide a similar experience but with letters and words needing to be created. How about a game that combines both? Puzzlejuice is exactly that, making for a very potent mix of fun and brainteasing.
