In the sea of match 3 games such as Candy Crush and Bejeweled, Glass Balls stands out from the crowd. This game from ZF Digital differs from all of the similar games with the unique background and graphics, even if it isn’t too revolutionary.
Glass Balls is great for users that love match 3 puzzle games and are looking for a fun new challenge. It is great for new users too and it is obvious that the developers put in a lot of work to create a spectacular game.
Concept and Gameplay
The concept is well-known, but in this game there are adjustments to make things look more interesting and unique. You need to connect at least 3 game colored glass balls to destroy them.
The gameplay is thus familiar and it is truly functional going at just about the perfect pace. Glass Balls can really be a great past time as it is smartly thought out and wonderfully implemented.
In addition to its polished looks, this game is using a great physics engine so the gameplay is terrific. There aren’t any grids (like in 90% of the other match 3 puzzle games) and you can connect the balls in any direction and they can go anywhere.
Of course, the more you connect, the more points you will get. They’ve done a great job with the graphics and sound, because the effects are indeed amazing and highly enjoyable.
Whereas you need to connect three balls to eliminate them, connecting more will earn you more points and there are “special bombs” that will triple or seriously boost your score.
This game also features 3 different game modes including Classic, which is fantastic. You need to race against the timer and that makes things really exciting, especially as you progress.
In the Rush mode the glass balls will come up to you continuously and they will speed up gradually. You need to be fast and effective because when the bowl fills up, you will lose the game.
The Infinite Mode is far more relaxing. You can finish your game and post your score whenever you want.
This great feature of choosing a game mode depending on your mood is nice. If you think you have achieved a good high score, you can compare it with other players or your friends on the leaderboard where you will find tons of Achievements.
Great graphics, unique set ups, cool sound effects, beautiful typography and 3 different game modes are enough to make this one of the best match 3 games for your iOS device. With the additional challenges available in the Game Center, it gets even more entertaining.
This is definitely not one of those low quality match 3 game reskins; it is a cool, professional and enjoyable game.
Glass Balls requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedited fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
