Simple and easy swipe action
mobile developer have made four puzzle games based on different popular cartoons. These include The Flintstones
, Snow White
, The Smurfs
, and Minions
. I have only played The Flintstones version, so that is the one I am going to review, but I think they are pretty much all the same.
The Flintstones Puzzle Game is a simple swipe game made for Android computer tablets, and is basically the same as Bejeweled
, only instead of gemstones you have Flintstone characters.
Although there are no instructions on how to play, it didn't take me more than a few seconds to figure out. The aim of the game is to get as high a score as possible by swapping round characters to create a line of the same character (either vertically or horizontally). The minimum is three, but the more in a row, the higher you score. If you get four or more, then a special 'bomb' character will appear. If you use this character, then it will 'blow up' a number of the surrounding characters for more points.
As your score increases, the game becomes more difficult, as additional characters are added into the mix. There is no time limit, but at the top of the screen it will show you how many possible moves there are. Once you reach zero the game is over.
Highlghts where you can go
There are only two niggles I have with this game; first, if you take a while to find a line, then it will give you a hint, but I do not think the game gives you long enough before it starts to make suggestions. Second, you can't save your score, so you don't get the fun of trying to beat your previous achievement.
