Summary Logic Ring Master: Crystal Orb Element Saga has a ridiculously long name for what is a very simple game. You swipe orbs across a ring with the aim of getting at least 4 in a row. That’s it. Of course there are power-ups and extra colours, but fundamentally it’s a very simple game.
Review Logic Ring Master is a fast, simple game that’s easily accessible without complex rules or in-app purchases needed to get full use of the game. However, that same simplicity which enables it to be accessible also quickly makes it repetitive.
It’s a simple concept: swipe orbs from one side of an ever-growing circle to the other in an attempt to get 4, 5, or 6 of the same colour in a row. At the same time, extra orbs are being added making it more challenging, and the black hole at the centre of the circle threatens to absorb all of your orbs and end the game. You can stop this by swiping and clearing as fast as you can, or by using occasional power-ups, like a frozen ice ball, which stops the universe absorbing you.
I grew quickly bored of the game, exacerbated by the irritating messages that the game’s designers had thrown in, for example, I was asked to rate the game 5 stars to receive the next power-up. The box to tap no read, “No way. I hate free stuff.” I don’t hate free stuff, I just don’t like being bribed to rate a mediocre game as outstanding when it clearly isn’t. I think that's a basic principle of ethics in games journalism.
So, in summary, the game is okay. It a casual game that you could use to pass the time, and I have no doubt that some would find it quite addictive. I didn’t, so it’s being deleted from my device so I can download some more new games to review as soon as possible.
