Pinch n Pop Quick Review

Review by Matt Dunn

You pinch cute little blobs together to pop them. They are smiling and happy, and I ended their meager existence within seconds of them being born! Am I a cold-hearted killer? I might feel guilty, if this game wasn’t so dang fun! Read on for a quick review truly unique color-matching puzzle game.

I don't want to destroy them! They're too cute!

I dont want to kill them! They are too cute!

Presentation & Graphics

Colorful graphics, with excellent animation. Very polished game.


Very fun sound effects for popping and bouncing the “squirms” into each other. No background music, but that’s not a huge deal. The pinching sound can get a bit annoying though since you’re doing it so much.


Controls are surprisingly accurate for a game that has you pinching two squirms together, with many on the screen at the same time. However, when the screen starts getting full, it seems the pinching becomes less accurate, which is frustrating. The power ups are a lot of fun.

Game life:

Only one game mode, which means you will tire of it fast. Granted, this is a great game when you first pick it up, but after you frantically pinch at your screen for 10 minutes, it starts to get a bit tedious. Still, it’s one of those great pickup-and-play games that’s good to kill a few minutes between classes, at the DMV, etc.

Game rating:

Final word:

Pinch n Pop’s simplicity is both it’s strength and it’s weakness. The game is extremely easy to pick up and play, and a lot of fun at that! However, due to only one game mode, and no other options, it’s definitely not a game you’re going to be playing for a long time. The constant pinching can tire out your fingers, but this definitely isn’t a game that was designed to played for long periods of time. Pinch n Pop is a unique, silly, and well-polished game for quick fun on the go.
