Saunavihta

A frothing geyser of black vapor lies somewhere in every level, and it's up to you to send the shivering little protagonist tumbling into the miasma. The game's kind enough to tuck a decidedly useful trick up your sleeve: white objects can be disintegrated with but a single click of the mouse.

Nice review, Dan! I liked your reviews from the You Are Games contest, and this one is just as good.

I'm really enjoying this game, too. Phuzzles have always been my favorite kind of game, even if they only got named a couple of days ago (I have to thank Dora for that). The only drawback here is that it's just too short. Then again, every good phuzzle seems to leave this impression on the players. Guess I'll have to wait for a sequel!

I love the man's Style. Every game this designer makes is artistically phenomenal. However, this game I found myself enjoying a little less than usual. It's kind of like a modified, extremely trippier 'Red Remover'.

We liked Dan's reviews from the contest so much, we asked him to write for us regularly. He enthusiastically accepted, and the rest is history. Well, not ancient history, but you know what I mean.

what a great game to play! Awesome graphics and soundtrack that goes with it. Also many puzzles I saw where very original which is becoming a rare thing in physics puzzles.

By the way:
Is JIG trying to change the name of the genre physics puzzle into Phuzzle, or phyzzle? Kinda like that.

We don't know. There are members of the JIG staff in both the phuzzle and the phyzzle camp. Which do you like better?

Saunavihta, perkele.

For those that don't know, saunavihta is Finnish and means a bunch of leavy branches, that we Finns use to smack eachother in hot sauna.

My vote -> Phuzzle

Nice game but too much critical timing and not enough thinking for my tastes.

(Dropping something on top of a snowplough is also interesting. It doesn't move as you might expect!)

"Phuzzyzzle", rhyming with "fo shizzle."

I like phuzzle better than phyzzle.

This game is too random. If you click here or there then wait ten minutes maybe eventually your little guy will find his way to the flame. Then again maybe you have to click right away and drop certain items in the way of the hazards. Often it's a matter of chance whether or not you'll succeed either way it seems.

And my vote is for "phyzzle". "Phuzzle" seems like it should be a Chewbacca puzzle. Or something to do with little forest creatures. Or perhaps something you've found under your sofa.

I like "phyzuzzle" too. :)

Level 25? Is the timing insane, or am I missing something?

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

for level 25

delete the circle stops the star, then the rectangle down the van just when turn to the left, and just a second before the ramp ends delete the upper right rectangle

I cannot seem to get level 15 no matter what variation I use

I only made it level 10 before I quit. There's nothing otherwise bad about the game, but it's awfully slow-paced, no?

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

It is kind of slow paced, but on most levels once I get things going I can put the window in the background and let the level finish rather quickly, which only really works for the earlier levels. For some reason this game and some other things I have encountered run slow when you are looking at them. Graphics or something.

You can find the walkthrough guide through the game. It seems I am not allowed to link it.
