Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of Gamehouse's Tumblebugs, an arcade puzzle game in which players must match colored balls to slow their progress along a winding track. The game follows the adventures of tumble as he attempts to free his comrades from slavery at the hands of the Black Bug Empire. The Game Room gave Tumblebugs 3.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

Although the basic gameplay won’t offer a lot of surprises for fans of the genre, there are some pleasant embellishments here. For example, a special Lob power-up let you use ballistic bugs to lob your shots over rows so you can match colors further away in the queue. In some levels you can even jump between multiple platforms to take shots from different angles—a fun variation that I haven’t seen before.

As you clear each level, Tumble progresses to another area of the backyard. Every few levels culminates in a bonus level, which lets you rack up additional points by completing tasks such as making all the bugs on the screen disappear within a time limit.

Check out the full review at the Game Room site listed below.
