The whole world is obsessed with Color Switch. But, does this game deserves all the attention? Is this the best game of the year so far?
Maybe not THE best, but it is still one of the best. With its addictive gameplay, interesting obstacles, upbeat music and colorful surroundings, Color Switch has conquered the iOS devices of more than 50 million users.
This is maybe due to intensive but relatively smart marketing the developers do on Facebook, but still it is a number that needs to respected.
Let’s see the features, design and concept of the game.
Design and Concept
The game has extremely unique design and concept that was new to the market when the app first launched.
Now, there are many clones and copies of the game that simply want to cash in on the popularity of Color Switch. When people copy you, that guarantees that you are doing something great.
So, the design and the concept of the game I outstanding and that is the base of the app’s success. The gameplay requires from you to pass through the circles with the ball at the right time and through the right color.
But things get a lot harder as you progress, and we think that the gameplay should’ve been little easier.
In this way it can get frustratingly hard at the beginning. But on the other hand, maybe, that is making the game more addictive.
Features and difficulty
You must control the ball pass it through the circles and different shapes and avoid all obstacles.
In the game there are several powerups that will largely help you when the going gets tough. You need to explore these powerups yourself, however you must watch out, if you touch or try to pass through other color, you will lose the game and return to the start.
Since recently there are new game modes and over 50 new levels and 3 new balls added. So, if you know about the game and you think you have mastered it you have a new challenge. These features in combination with the gameplay are making the game irresistibly addictive. The music and the sounds play large roll in this as well.
In terms of difficulty this game is somewhere in the range of medium and hard games. It’s not too hard, but it can really get frustratingly difficult at some point.
Is that level of difficulty a good thing or a bad thing? You be the judge. All we can say is it gave Color Switch, and previously Flappy Bird (the original king of difficult games) worldwide attention and success.
With the smooth design, lovely ball jumping physics and overall with the interesting concept and idea, Color Switch is still the game to beat this year and it is still the most cloned game at this particular moment.
But let’s face it, no matter what, it’s all about the game and this game is fun, enjoyable and addictive.
Color Switch 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.
