Chuzzle is a classic game that is played in a similar fashion to Bejeweled and Zuma.
Those who enjoy classic games that can be played for hours are certainly well aware of Chuzzle. Boasting cute and furry creatures, the aim of the platform is to match up more than three in either a horizontal or vertical row. When these animals disappear, a flask on the left hand side of the screen fills up. One progresses to the next level once the limit of the jar is reached. Offering unforgettable sound effects and a soothing environment, Chuzzle has already taken its place in gaming history.
Easy Game Play and Control
One of the features which has always enabled Chuzzle to enjoy such popularity is that it is extremely easy to control. There is no need to utilise a keyboard whatsoever. The mouse pointer is simply dragged to where the player wants to click. Then, the corresponding number of Chuzzles will disappear; enabling further creatures to drop down. While it appears that there is little strategy involved, the truth of the matter is that the player will have to battle against the clock as well as a number of different colours that need to be matched.
Variations and Progressive Levels
There is no true "end" to this game. This is an aspect which makes it enjoyable for those who prefer such scenarios. As would be expected, the time runs out faster as one progresses through the levels and there are less move available. Other situations can occur such as a "fat" Chuzzle that takes up more than one row. Although this can make the game play more challenging, eliminating a larger Chuzzle also equates to more points and a quicker end to the level.
Cuzzle requires 500 MHz of processing power alongside at least 128 megabytes of RAM. Direct X 9.0 codec is recommended. Chuzzle is compatible with Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Chuzzle is a must-have classic for anyone who is captivated by point-and-drag games. There are still a few features (both positive and negative) that are worthwhile mentioning.
- Soothing graphics
- Four different game variants to choose from
- Quite easy to play while offering hours of entertainment
- May be too repetitive over time
- No real way to "win"
- The soundtrack can prove annoying as it is played over and over
