Sneezies is a great, fun, and amazingly cute puzzle game. The goal on each level is to pop at least the specified number of Sneezies by setting off a chain-reaction of sneeze-induced bubble popping. I told you it was cute.
This is an interesting puzzle game. You set off a chain reaction of bubble popping by tapping the screen and releasing sneezing powder. Any bubbles within a certain radius will pop and set off another bloom of sneezing powder and continue the chain reaction. This only stops once you run out of bubbles or there aren't any bubbles close enough to pop. It's a great implementation for a puzzle game. The big upside is that's it's a game you play at your own pace. Miss the goal for the level, don't worry -- just try again. Your score is based of the total number of bubbles you pop.
Included in the main play mode, Classic, are 45 puzzle levels. There's also a Challenge mode that requires that you get a certain number of bubble pops with a set number of touches. Challenge mode includes 15 levels. Both modes are fun but Classic is by far the best. Also included are local and online high scores.
Take a look at the video below for and exmaple of the game play.
Sneezies is a great little puzzle game. It won't keep you busy for hours on end, but for $0.99, it's a fantastic game to pass the time with and will be great for the kids.
