Globs review (iOS/Universal)

June 23, 2011

“Get some colours on, get some colours on”

10 word description: Match colours, merge Globs and get big points. Normal & Time mode.

10 word review:
Colourful, casual and incredibly simple game. Didn’t really grab me.

You will like this if you enjoy: Casual colour matching games. Note – this isn’t a Match-3 game, even if it sounds like one.

The good news: Very easy to get into; fairly relaxed play, even in timed mode.

The increased number of globs doesn't make the game any more challenging. It just takes a bit longer.

The bad news: Too easy and it feels very limited with only two modes which are almost identical due to the very generous time limit in Time mode.

You can go and make a cup of tea and the timer bar (bottom of the screen) won't move much more than this

Arcadelife verdict: It’s ok for what it is, but those looking for anything beyond a casual, relaxed colour-matching game should probably try one of the other thousands of games available on the app store. Apparently 70 million people have “enjoyed the online version” of Globs. I’d hazard a guess that the word “enjoyed” might be a bit of optimism on the part of the marketing department.

Thanks, you're welcome
