The game Bag It! (by Hidden Variable Studios) is an iPhone puzzle game that stands out from the crowd due to its unique and fresh idea of grocery bag puzzle gameplay. Most of us go to the grocery store at least once a week, unless you have teenagers — and that means you may go daily. Which brings us to another important issue: how to bag the groceries properly so that you don’t end up with broken eggs or smashed bread by time you get home with the goods. Bag It! does just that. This puzzle game has 50 entertaining levels of grocery puzzle bagging that will test your ability not only to get everything to fit, but to account for each object’s physical properties as well, like you wouldn’t place milk on top of chips for obvious reasons.
The piece of gameplay that I missed in the video, unfortunately, is to turn an item while placing it into the bag, you have to hold the item, then tap on the screen somewhere to turn an item, say to fit into a tight spot. The real trick to this game is quick thinking and some common sense, like milk should not be turned upside down, and eggs crack under pressure — like criminals being interrogated by Chuck Norris. Bag It! is a fantastic casual puzzle game that has room to grow, such as expanding to cover “Department Store Bag It!” or “Hardware Store Bag It!” where you have to put paint, light bulbs, etc., into a bag. Either way, you will get your $0.99 out of this game. Also, there is an HD version that is iOS universal (works on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) that sells for $1.99.
