Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of Frenzic, an addictive new puzzle title from The Icon Factory and Artis Software. The game challenges players to fill circles with colorful wedge shapes in a battle against the clock. The Game Room gave Frenzic a score of 3.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

Frenzic’s game board comprises six circles spread around a center circle. Colored pie pieces, one sixth the diameter of each circle (looking a bit like Trivial Pursuit pieces), appear in the center circle, and you place them in a corresponding open slot in an outer circle to earn points. The goal is to complete each pie using as few colors as possible—the fewer colors, the more points. You’ll get points for laying down pie pieces; you’ll get more for completing pies.

If you manage to finish a complete pie using only one color, you’ll get an extra life. And believe me, you’ll need it. Because once you get going, the action ramps up fast—you have to place a piece in a limited amount of time, and that time grows shorter the more you play. If the time bar goes all the way to the red, you lose a life. One of the great challenges of Frenzic is finding a home for all your pieces. Since you can’t rotate the pieces that show up, you have only six possible spots for each piece on the game board. It makes you think twice about whether you want to try to complete each circle using only one color. In many cases, it’s either mix up colors or die.
