The App Store has quite a big number of excellent puzzle games to download. And with Collision Effect there’s now one more contender that should definitely get your attention. It comes as universal app for $0.99 and is an addictive and gorgeous representative of the genre for your iPhone and iPad.
The title of the game basically describes what to expect from the gameplay. You will have to collide zybbles of the same color into each other without touching zybbles of a different color. The controls to make this happen are very straight forward. If you tap a zybble, it will have a gravity effect on all other zybbles of the same color which makes them instantly fly towards the one you just tapped.
Collision Effect comes with two different modes, ‘Action’ and ‘Puzzle’. The ‘Action’ mode will throw wave after wave of new zybbles at you which you will have to clear. As usual, this is getting more and more difficult with each new wave and becomes pretty hectic after just a few waves. The ‘Puzzle’ mode on the other hand will challenge your brain and your timing. It features 60 levels in which zybbles are waiting for you in fixed patterns. Again, only zybbles of the same color are allowed to touch each other. While these patterns never become too difficult, it is sometimes tricky to get the timing right. You can slow down the speed of the zybbles once you start moving them which makes it much easier to get the correct timing.
While the ‘Action’ mode is undeniably fun, I have really enjoyed the puzzle mode. I hope Chillingo will keep on supporting this game with more (and more challenging) levels in future updates. The game features some beautiful particle effects and great sound that perfectly fits the gameplay. All in all Collision Effect is one of the more outstanding action-puzzle games on the App Store. At the moment there is no lite version available, but since the game was just released a few days ago we will maybe see one pop up over the next few weeks. However, if you are a fan of the genre I don’t think you can go wrong with Collision Effect for $0.99 – And the fact that it comes as a universal app makes it even more attractive.
