A new review from The Mac Observer examines Frenzic, the recently released puzzle title from Iconfactory. The game challenges players to fill circles with colorful wedge shaped pieces before a timer runs out. The simple and challenging gameplay earned Frenzic a score of 4 out of 5 from the Observer.
From the review:
The keyboard commands, however, left me a bit confused at first. Based on their descriptions, I thought I could swap already placed wedges with the next wedge waiting to be placed. Once I figured out that I had misinterpreted the key descriptions, everything clicked into place for me, and I found Frenzic amazingly easy to play.For the full review click on the link below.
Mac Observer: Frenzic Review
Since Frenzic doesn't lots of animations, it goes easy on your graphics and system processors. I tested the game on a 1.67GHz PowerBook G4, and it performed without any image redraw latency. Frenzic is Universal Binary, so it will perform even better on Intel-based Macs - although I doubt you will notice any difference since it plays so smoothly on older systems.
If you are in to sharing your scores, the Frenzic Web site includes a high scores section. It lets you track your scores, the scores of friends, or the scores of all players. If you aren't all that excited about letting the rest of the world see how well you do at the game, you don't have to upload your scores.
