    While I understand that some people may find this kind of topics annoying, I happen to appreciate them. Right now I'm two levels away from finishing Snail Mail and I'd like to get a (one! not both ;) ) new game.

    I'm in doubt, not sure to get Trism or Frenzic. How do people who have played them (preferrable both) feel about them? Which is your favourite? I made the poll public, so people can see who voted for which game. (Your username will appear behind your choice, I hope this doesn't scare people.)

    Do you still play Trism?
    Can you see yourself playing Frenzic for a long time?

    Trism has several game modes and achievements, does Frenzic have anything like this?

    Get both! They are really well done. Both 5/5 stars.

    I like Frenzic a bit more. :)

    Ooooh, tough question. I think I prefer Frenzic just a little more than Trism. Frenzic is fast and doesn't get boring. Trism is just sloooow gameplay sometimes, so it can get boring quickly, but it has very high replay value.

    Frenzic usually gives me a good 30 minutes of playing before I get so frustrated I stop playing till later. This is a good game to play when you've got a couple minutes to waste :)

    I just couldn't get into trism unfortunately.I blank spots :p But frenzic is really fast paced and the neon theme makes it preferable to me. However, it can get annoying when it's not possible to place a piece, as all of those slots are taken up.

    Haha I stated that I wanted only one, and I did that for a reason. If I get both, I will like one more than the other, and then end up not playing one of the games.

    If I get one now, I may consider the other later (depending on the good games coming out in the (near) future) in a choice similar to this one. (So maybe it will then be Rolando / Trism, or Sim City / Frenzic)

    Hmm yes I showed my girlfriend videos of both and she also thought Trism was slow. I remember Bejeweled to be quite fast though so apparently Trism is different in this aspect.

    Thank you both and ITrocks for the comments so far and Nexus for the vote!

    Try the Frenzic demo here, I had really enjoyed the game and found it to be very addictive, although comparing the prices it would be a hard choice to make. Frenzic is stronger in gameplay and Trism is better value with achievements so its up to you :p

    Take Frenzic. It'S a really great game.

    I only use the puzzle mode in Trism and you have to hold the iPhone flat while playing which sucks.

    Both games are very polished.

    Hehe that's the hard thing, it's up to me!
    I don't have a Mac so I can't try the desktop version. I think I've got an OK feeling of how the game works though. It's just hard to choose, so other opinions just may make the difference. :)

    I would go with Trism, Frenzic has too random gameplay, you just have to get lucky, while in Trism you need to have skill.

    I really like Puzzle modes in games, so then maybe it would be better to wait and see if the special Trism game with all the puzzles comes out (and maybe a promotion) and then jump on the Trism bandwagon one way or another.

    On the other hand, Frenzic is quite new so might get a pricedrop in a few weeks. But then again, that´s all in the game and it´s a risk we all take quite often!

    @Chiller_ONE
    Yeah that's a good point, if you get a pizza slice in Frenzic that doesn't fit, you're just out of luck.

    They used to have a web browser demo for Frenzic that worked with the iPod/iPhone but they removed it so I guess it will be a hard decision...

    You still have the desktop demo to try, tho iPhone touch interface is a lot better than the mouse one.
