Great Game!
This is my favorite iPhone game and has well been worth the $.99. It's similar to the original except that in this the grid is smaller and the atoms pass through each other -- these changes make sense given the iPhone format. Aside from that, it's Jezzball! Clear 75% of the screen and you move to the next level -- trap the atoms in smaller compartments (chimney technique), clear *more* than 75%, and you get the big bonus points! After you beat the first 20 levels, you go to Level Zero, and then start back at Level 1 so you can rack up those Donkey Kong points. ,,, My only reservation (though it doesn't take away from a 5-star rating): I wish it were possible to set the line direction and *keep it that way* until changed by the screen-top icon. Currently a swipe vertically or horizontally produces a line in that respective direction, and a tap without any detected swiping reverts to the previously selected direction (simpler than these words). When I'm doing complicated things with multiple touches in a second it would help if there was more of a guarantee, but just know that this isn't going to be a problem for most people.. It is, however, the only way my high score streaks are broken... My current high score: 294704! Got to level 13 three times! w00t!

Game has a mind of its own
The game itself is fairly close to the original, but will without rhyme or reason switch from horizontal to vertical and vice-versa, most of the time causing the player to lose. Because of this large glitch, I am a bit frustrated that I paid for a game that does not work the way that it is supposed to. Aesthetically it would also be much nicer if the buttons did not all have the word "button" on them. It makes the game look unpolished. That being said, it was only 99 cents.

It's okay
Reminds you of old times but not so addicting to me. Game is just how I remember it but with a few tweaks like the background art and music. Just three stars because I wasn't blown away and not two stars because it works fine. (at least up until this point)

Frustrating controls!
Have loved this game since the original but this version seems to have a mind of its own -- randomly chooses to build horizontal or vertical walls regardless of which is selected. Sometimes it's because I've accidentally brushed the screen and sometimes it's for no reason at all. The player should have to touch the arrow icon itself to control wall direction (which would eliminate accidental input). And the developer should resolve the issue of ignoring direction selected. I have lost too many Jezzball lives as a result of these problems!

This is the jezzball to get.
I've been looking for jezzball to download for a while, both on the computer and on the iPhone/iPad. This is definitely the version to get. It has the exact same gameplay as the classic version, with a great newer feel to it. Very happy to buy this for a dollar.

Up and Running. Let the fun begin...
I bought iJezzball back with black screen version (unknowingly) and used my space for comment liberally. I still believe that apps need to be thoroughly tested by App Store engineers before allowing release and that developers should do the same before submission. Matt was very responsive to support emails and he did have a revision to fix this issue that took Apple forever to approve of. We now have a usable version that is fun to play without the black screen and I now rate the game as a solid 5 stars. Thanks, Matt
