What do you get when you combine pinball, pool, and brick breaker and wrap it all up in a beautiful design? You get Arrow C, a slick new puzzler from IF Global Limited.

Design

The color scheme is bright and rich, with solid flat colors being the norm. Icons and shapes are very geometric and clean, with buttons casting shadows as if they were actually sitting on top of the layer beneath.

The animations are smooth as silk and the gameplay certainly takes advantage of the simple design.

Concept and Functionality

Your objective is to clear the playfield of colored blocks by bouncing a color-changing ball into them, ricocheting off the walls and other blocks to create combos.

Tap and drag your finger to aim the ball and adjust your power then release to send the ball flying around the field. When your ball connects with a block of a given color, it changes to that color and subsequent hits will break that block.

As you progress through the levels, you’ll end up coming across stages with multiple colors to deal with, corners that bounce your ball in different directions, and even moving walls which interfere with your ball’s travel.

Every level can earn you three stars which will drop off if you take too many bounces to clear all the blocks. If you earn all three stars, you’ll gain a diamond, this game’s particular in-app currency which can be used to restart a level, purchase extra attempts, and so forth (and, of course, you can purchase more with real money if you desire).

If we had to identify a particular challenge spot in the game, it would be the tricky nature of aiming and firing your ball accurately to use ricochets, an utter necessity to clear three stars. The tutorial guides you through the mechanic but it’s still difficult to master. The good news is that it’s a challenge, but not impossible.

Overall Value

Between the 80 levels included, an Endless mode to really test your perseverance, and Game Center / Facebook integration to challenge your friends, this free game will last you hours upon hours.

Expect to hear more about this fun new game.
