The fantastic visual style.
Edit: beat to it.

Should be familiar. It's from the Pokemon Trozei team.

So this has been out for a bit. The "puzzle" aspect is pretty basic. You chain together similar pokemon icons for a larger combo/score, "stirring" them together and then releasing your finger. Not very challenging. The shape of the field does change, I suppose, but this is mobile phone fare.

That isn't to say the game lacks quality. The art, sound effects, and music are all great (especially for a free game). But I don't think this is gonna wow any puzzle-game fans on the merit of the puzzling itself.

I CLAPPED WHEN IS SAW POKEMON

On a serious note, games that require you to rub your finger on the screen for long and continuous movements can really burn your finger after a while. Not sure I'm a fan of that.
