You remember yo-yos, right? Trighede iPhone app takes tricky yo-yo moves to the next level with this challenging match four app. You’ll be pulling tricks and clearing boards before you can say gravity pull.
If you enjoy matching games and have an eye for strategy, the Trighede iPhone app will be right up your ally. In some ways this app mimics perennial favorites such as Bejeweled. The main idea is to line up four or more yo-yos of the same color.
Unlike the other games, in Trighede you must actually get the yo-yos in a straight line instead of just having them touch. That makes this app indefinitely trickier, but you’re up for a challenge, right?
Each time you move a yo-yo there must be a clear path to the spot it’s moving. Yo-yos go twisting and turning all around the board, it’s really quite fun.
Unfortunately, each time you move a yo-yo several new yo-yos appear. The idea is to keep going and clearing yo-yos as long as you can. Oh and make your moves fast, or the clock will run out and yo-yos will pop up to block your path.
Trighede puts an effective new twist on a classic game concept and adds excitement with a timer. Once you have this game figured out you’ll want to play again and again to see if you can beat your top score. There are also three different levels of difficulty, making this app appropriate for all ages.
I’m glad that Trighede has a built in tutorial menu, but you won’t need it to figure out navigation. During game play yo-yos are controlled by a simple tap, and the app responds perfectly every time.
There is a dedicated pause button during game play and a score tally. Otherwise this iPhone app is all game, just the way I like it. The homepage and other menus are extremely easy to use.
Graphics & Design:
The developers at elever didn’t stop working when they came up with a simple, addictive game concept. They actually went the extra mile to create a well-animated and visibly pleasing app.
Yo-yo animation is really rather delightful. A simple touch shoots out a rope that sends bright yo-yos ricocheting across the board. Even the load animation and menus have captivating outdoor backdrops that remind me of childhood games outdoors with neighborhood kids.
So as I’ve established, Trighede combines simple, addictive game play, bright but masterful graphics and a solid UI in an amazing app that you’ll want to play again and again.
Best of all? It’s free to download the Trighede iPhone app from iTunes. Now we’re talking. Get this app. You don’t have anything to lose other than all the time you’ll want to spend playing Trighede.
Trighede iPhone app requires iOS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
