Join Anna, Olaf, and Elsa, the stars of Frozen, in this puzzle game for Windows 8 based on the popular Disney film.
Like many puzzle games, the point of Frozen Free Fall is to complete challenges: achieving a score in a limited amount of time, destroying blocks of ice, or having items fall off the screen whilst moving across a board.
Prior to every match, a companion (one of the characters from the movie) is chosen. Each companion has a special ability that helps with the destruction of blocks. At the end of each round, Frozen goes into Free Fall mode and all remaining special gems are destroyed.
Every failed level results in the loss of a life. You have five lives in Frozen and it takes half an hour for them to replenish. Around level 17 the levels become vastly more difficult and incredibly difficult to beat without inapp purchased upgrades.

Columns are destroyed by matching up to at least three gems of the same color. Gems are moved by swiping. To use special abilities, click on the icons near the companions.
Addicting game that ultimately cools off
Although initially enjoyable, Frozen Free Fall suffers halfway through the game from being virtually unbeatable without inapp purchases.
Frozen Free Fall boasts some impressive graphics. Fans of Frozen will be pleased to know that your companion looks straight out of the film. Cutscenes between levels are also of high quality.
The board that displays the gems isn't going to wow you, but it still looks acceptable. The sound, although no grating, is mediocre at best and plays the same music throughout the game.
