On Monday, I got my weekly game alert email from Shockwave. In it, they mentioned Chuzzle:
Well who could resists that? I thought it might be something Duncan could play that wasn't too violent. Exploding animals vs exploding humans with blood flying everywhere. Yeah, I know. It's a stretch.
Last night I found the time to download and install it on one of the computers at home, and started in on the free 60 minute trial. It is indeed a cute game. Duncan wandering in and immediately wanted to play it, so I showed him what he needed to do, and got out of his way.
I was reading in another room, and I could occasionally hear these bursts of hysterical laughter coming from him. That's usually a sign that he's getting near exhaustion and it's time for bed. I was just about to get up and suggest that, when he comes running in. "Daddy, daddy you got to see this!". We went back in the other room, and he started continually clicking on one of the cute fuzzy creatures. It's starts sneezing and after a few moments, there is a big explosion and it looses all of it's fur. You have a bald "fuzzy" creature. Then the fur grows back. The larger fuzzy creatures react in a similar manner. It is indeed very funny.
Duncan went though the 60 minute free trial and wants to buy the game. As this sort of thing is typically a one-day-wonder, I'm going to hold off for a few days and see if he goes onto something else. If he's still interested after that period, then I'll consider buying it.
