If you enjoy sports trivia or puzzle games, you’re going to get a real kick out of Sports Mania Pop Match Puzzle Game, from Susan Domann. This game allows users to relax to ambient music, while being presented various bubbles of different colors and content.
Quickly pick the bubbles that match the ever-changing title at the top of the screen before the clock runs out. But competitive gamers beware, this title gets more and more frenzied as it goes along, so strap in!
This game does an excellent job of presenting the user with more difficulty as levels progress. At level one, everything seems easy, breezy and even a little bit too simple. However, level two begins to increase the amount of little puzzle circles that litter the screen.
By level three, you’ve really got to strain to beat the clock and match everything up on time. This game might just sharpen your reflexes and increase your time management skills as well.
While it doesn’t have many sub-features or gaming variation, it does definitely deliver some puzzling fun quite well.
Concept and Functionality:
The concept is sound and the app runs well. However, there are so many advertisements thrown at you that it’s a little bit difficult to get into the flow of the game without purchasing the “Remove Ads” feature. The advertisements are so prevalent, that sometimes you have to click through two separate ads before resuming your game. This is a bit off-putting, but at the same time, everybody has got to keep the lights on. The app itself never crashes, and seems to be capable, quick and sturdy on its development end.
The app has a bit of a bland aesthetic, and the landing screen looks like a bright blue movie screen from 1982. It could use some touch ups when it comes to presentation, and even more importantly, refining and reducing the amount of ads that are launched at the user within the immediately accessible, ad-free version of the app.
Still, Sports Mania delivers a punch and is going to be a big hit with sports fans, and those that can’t get enough puzzle games too. Most of the app flows well together, and earns its keep through and through. If you plan to stay sharp while gaming, than match up with Sports Mania Pop Match Puzzle Game as soon as you can!
