At the start, the objective of FuzzBalls – Mix n Match Game is a bit fuzzy, but with dedication and practice it can grow much more clear.
FuzzBalls – Mix n Match Game clearly offers very cute graphics, but the conscious choice to make even the text in the directions fuzzy has a negative impact on clarity. Sure, it’s in the theme of fuzzy, but players don’t want to feel like their eyes are going bad. Crisp text would neither distract or aggravate, and no one is going to complain about the text not being fuzzy. On top of this, parts of the background such as the ground itself and the strange looping trees are semi-fuzzy which leads not to the feeling of an immersive world, but rather bad design. The ground especially looks choppy and pixilated like the pixilated referee and victory text. The user interface (UI) overall is fuzzy and altogether lackluster, and yet the in game characters are cute and the fuzz works for them as they are fuzz balls not text, score numbers, or menu options.
The game play is certainly unique, utilizing players basic knowledge of primary and secondary colors, but there is still plenty of confusion to be had. With eight different colors, four different sets of eyes that range from Cyclopes to half spiders, two types of directional bombs, 3D spinning clovers, jagged crystals, diamonds, void space, and mystery space, there is a lot of be mindful of, and yet most victories come from an act of chance. One simple move can often lead to clearing the board in an explosion of combos that leaves the player wondering just what it is that they did. On top of this, one eyed fuzz balls can only join with other one eyed fuzz balls, twos with twos, threes with threes and so on. Overall there is a much steeper learning curve with FuzzBalls – Mix n Match Game that other matching puzzle games, so those who only enjoy instant gratification and games that plays themselves will probably not enjoy FuzzBalls – Mix n Match Game, but those who like a unique challenge will have a good time learning the mechanics of the game, if they can get passed the feeling of helplessness that comes with the instant victory scenarios, resulting from mass combos that are largely out of their control.
The levels are not very variable, but there are several different worlds with lots of levels, so while it may grow repetitive, it still has plenty of levels to play. Those who have the patience for novel, new games may enjoy FuzzBalls – Mix n Match Game, the rest may grow confused and subsequently annoyed, or simply listen to a chorus of negative grunts until they manage to trigger a mass combo.
