"Sparkle Unleashed is tremendously addictive and gets the basics of the genre right whilst adding a few changes to the mix. If you liked Zuma - which unfortunately for Sparkle Unleashed now runs on Xbox One via backward compatibility - you'll probably enjoy the challenge this provides, even if there isn't anything majorly groundbreaking going on."
7 / 10 - Pure Xbox
"Sparkle Unleashed is a solid puzzle game with a few new ideas - but not enough to truly feel fresh. We can't criticise the controls or gameplay here, but the feeling of familiarity that pervades the whole experience lets it down. If you want a timewaster to fill a few minutes here or there, then this is well worth a shot. Otherwise, you can give this one a miss."

"I was left wishing that it had done more, instead of repeating its few gameplay challenges again and again."
