Frenzic by the Iconfactory & ARTIS Software has always been a cool game: you race against the clock to strategically position pie wedges in available spots gaining points and power ups as you go. It’s been available on the Mac since March of 2007 but I had a better chance of resisting its addictive pull because the mouse and keyboard just aren’t the best method of input for a game like this. Frenzic is a “put that THERE!” kind of game…a game that begs to be instructed with the point of a demanding finger.
…and now Frenzic has come to the platform that can do it right–the iPhone and iPod touch.
A little while ago I was asked to test out Frenzic for iPhone
while it was still in beta and I teased my Flickr friends with the picture shown here. This is what a typical iPod touch will look like shortly after installing Frenzic…the tell tail seven spot fingerprint pattern is unmistakable. It’s the sign of an addict.
Frenzic is now available from the Apple App Store for USD$4.99, but be warned it pays back more than that in fun while making your free time vanish.
