Otis is a strategy/puzzle game for Mac OS X, based on a classic game popularly known as Same Game, Chain Shot, or JawBreaker.

The object is to remove all the blocks from the board by clicking on groups of two or more blocks with the same color. Clear as many blocks at once as possible to score higher, but only through careful maneuvering can you clear the entire board.

Written in Cocoa with an attention towards design and interface, Otis packs addicting gameplay, stunning visual effects, and multiple levels of difficulty for every player.

Very nice game for a casual break. The game play is simple and nothing is overdone, yet everything that should be there is. The graphics are very nice and it just feels like a well done OS X app. Also, the high scorers are hilarious!

Thanks for this nice game. It's fun and it's free, great! All the luck and joy to the developer! : )

An undo-last-step-button would be great. ; )

Great game. Very nice interface. Overall, very enjoyable.

The one thing that needs fixed is the high score stats. I have noticed that when you make the high scores list, the list isn't updated correctly. For example, if you have the 5th highest score on the list, the 5 item is updated, but the the rest of the list is not "bumped" down correctly. Positions 6-10 don't change.

I always love these little games. So when I saw Otis in my RSS feed I thought lets give it a try.

My first reaction was "WAUW".
The developers did an amazing job in making this game a real Mac experience. Complete with block animations!

And best of all it's free!

So compliments to the developers.
Bravo!
