The Screetch: players impressions


The Screetch in AppStore about ten days and we have a lot of positive impressions from players around the AppStore, forums and by mail. There are some of them:

…this has got too have some of the best graphics for this type of game and great gameplay as well this could be a bit of a hidden gem.


Graphics are really impressive. iPhone games bring closer to PSP. It’s not another match3 clone. It’s like Drop7 match3. Highly strategic puzzler. Great game! 5/5


I’m really glad that purchase this game, cause it not another match3 bejeweled-like clone and on the other hand it’s fun and challenging game.


Perhaps BP could learn something from this game? …the whole concept of fighting against the ever encroaching goo is really fun and at times pretty tense as well!

Lord Gek

Fab game – think Drop 7 with colours instead of numbers and you’ve got the idea. Gorgeous to look at, great sound and very addictive. It truly is a gem not to be missed!

Short Ar*e

The game is fantastic. Once you get into it’s intricacies, it opens up into a highly strategic puzzler. Not only will you have to plan for color placement, but also on the progress of the Screetch on a piece-by-piece level. The better you are, the deeper the game is. Graphics are sharp and beautifully animated, while the large array of lush backgrounds satisfy. Sound and music design are appropriate and enjoyable.


Regarding the gameplay the video says it all and, in resume, it is as simple as engaging. But graphics + animations are really impressive. In addition, the user interface shares the same artwork goodness. It can resume and App fast switching works properly. A great casual game! 5/5


A new twist, on an already existing genre… If your looking for a fun experience, with beautiful graphics & amazing music, i highly suggest you check out The Screetch.


Thank you guys, we really glad that you love The Screetch so much!
