If you're an achievement hunter, avoid. The leaderboard achievements are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t and may be nearly impossible to get legitly.

Otherwise, it's a good time waster, but wasn't that all fun for me than what I was to believe. I strongly suggest you play the demo first and see if it's fun for you, but I would avoid this game even if you're not going for achievements.

Critical Mass asks a simple question: What happens when you turn a Match-3 game into a 3D model? And that is what you get: A mass of cubes that requires you to match 4 cubes of the same colour to clear the level, and the idea alone is rather fascinating...

...Except that the main mode is basically a time trial mode, where the mass of cubes expands all the time and explodes at "critical mass" level. Once it does that, the whole level restarts and you lose all your previous power-ups.

I find this implementation frustrating, as it never gives you the right breathing room to think about your cube placements. I understand that there is a Zen Mode where you are free to clear cubes at your own pace, but the fact that I can't play through the vanilla ranked mode properly leaves a bad taste to me. If only they have a time limit for each level instead of making the mass of cubes a timed bomb, I would have enjoyed this game much more.

Rubik's cube Death simulator.

This game. IS just amazing.

The gameplay is so random at times. For all you know you're going great, but then. Nope. Sometimes you want to connect blocks up so you can execute them together.

This is a fun 3D puzzler vaguely reminiscent of Tetrisphere and the puzzles from the Android game Hero Forge.

Check out the demo.

I love how this game really exercises your 3D spatial reasoning skills. It's a simple and unambitious design, but feels polished and complete.

One minor warning: the immersive and relaxing atmosphere belies how tense it can get; just be ready for most rounds to end with you scrambling to make one more match as the whole thing explodes in your face.

It just got old really quick for me. I love puzzle games and matching games but for the life of me I just couldn't enjoy this game for longer than 10 minutes. Playing this prompted me to quickly open another puzzle game instead.

My Thoughts: This gameplay is really fun and hard at the same time. I had fun playing this game but I got bored of it really fast. It is all the same after you play it and there isn't that many modes to select. Not that much to do in this game but every time you play it you get a different gameplay experience. The Game is really cheap too making it a good price.

Rate: 7/10


Overall: I do recommend this game to everyone!

This is a simple extension into the third dimension of a typical match-x game. You start with a vaguely cube shaped pile of blocks and then fire predetermined color blocks onto the mass attempting to connect at least four of a color, causing them to be removed. In it's base mode each fired block causes the mass to grow while matching blocks causes it to shrink. Take too long or fire too many blocks without clearing any and you'll reach critical mass and lose.

The interesting thing about this game is that at it's heart it seems to want to be a competitive game. In the base mode there are only 10 levels and they have to be completed in one sitting to get a final score and attempt to get on the leaderboard and this leaderboard seems to be what the developers hoped would keep you coming back. Personally I'm not really a fan of this type puzzle game and the competitive aspects are not a draw to me. If you enjoy doing something multiple times in an attempt to hone your skill then this will be well worth the price of entry. If, like me, you're looking for a more encapsulated experience then its probably best to move on.

ブロック同士をくっつけて、4つ以上が繋がれば消える、そんなパズルゲームになります
俗に言う落ちものと違う点はパズルのフィールドが立方体の組み合わせということです
左クリックドラッグでフィールドを回転させて右クリックで右下に表示されているキューブをカーソルの場所に飛ばします
単純に消していくだけでは処理が間に合わないのでいかに孤立させないように消すか、それが重要になります
空間把握が非常に大事になる変わったタイプのパズルゲームです
ステージクリア形式のスタンダードなものから決められた個数でどれだけスコアが出せるかといった変わったルールまで
全部でいくつかのルールが存在するのでやっててなかなか面白いです
また、オンラインランキングもあるのでフレンドとスコアを競うこともできます、対戦はありませんが
非常に値段も安いので気晴らしにパズルゲームやりたいなーくらいの時にはいいと思います

手数重視のパズルゲーム
パズルの内容そのものは非常に単純で、ただ単に同じ色のブロックを四つ並べるとブロックが消える、全てのブロックを消したらクリアーとそれだけでしか無い。落ち物パズルでは無いので消した後の連鎖なども無く、単純かつ簡単。

しかし、それだけではただ単に簡単なゲームになってしまう。そこでこのゲームでは時間制限をきつめに設定して、アクションゲームのような「分かっては居るけど操作が追いつかない」と言った類の調整が行われている。

更にブロックを消した時のタイムボーナスが大きく設定されており、沢山のブロックを一度に消した方がより大きなタイムボーナスを得る事が出来る様になっている。
このゲームは四つの同色ブロックを繋げると消えると言うルールなので、一度に沢山のブロックを消す為には、三つ繋げたブロックを幾つも用意して最後にそれぞれを繋げる事が基本となる。これは時間が十分にあれば考えるまでもない程に簡単な作業だが、厳しい時間制限の中ではマウス操作と合わせてかなり難しい。そして実質このタイムボーナスを狙って次々とブロックを消していかなければこのゲームはクリアー出来ない。

結果としてこのゲームは、パズルゲームではあるもののパズルを解くと言う要素は薄く、とにかくひたすら考える時間もなく次々とブロックを消していく事が要求されるゲームになっている。三次元の立体に対して操作を行うので慎重なマウス操作も必要であり、間違ってブロックを置いてしまうと大きなタイムロスにもなる。このマウス操作が単純に見えて極めて難しい、時間短縮のためには出来るだけ回転を少なくした方が良いが、回転を少なくすると言う事は見えにくい視点でチラリと見える面を正確にクリックしていく必要があり、これはFPSのヘッドショットを次々と決める並に難しい。

このゲームをクリアーする為には操作に対する慣れ、ブロックの置き方をパターン化して思考時間を短くする事などの、かなりの習熟が必要になると思われる。
自分は、要求される学習曲線に対して自らの学習速度が追いつかず、先に飽きが来てしまい途中で断念してしまった。習熟する間を誤魔化すコンテンツも無く、ひたすら同じゲームを繰り返す事しか出来ないので、一度飽きてしまうともう一度挑戦しようと言う気分にはならない。
もっと学習速度が速く根気のある人に取っては面白いゲームなのかもしれないが、自分には合わないゲームだった。

ブロックを積んで消すという何の変哲もないパズルゲーム。
立体という点以外では何の工夫も無いゲーム。
私がプレイしたパズルゲームの中では最も単調なクリックパズル。
これを目当てには買わないほうが無難。
何かのついでに購入するのが妥当です。

自分が悪いのだが、ぶっちゃけこれ( http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wii/wiiware/artstyle/wprj/ )期待して買ったのでがっかりした。
つまらなくはないのだが、単調。やり込もうという気は起きないかな…
暇つぶしとかにちょうどいいって言いたいんだけど、そういうゲームはもっといっぱいあると思う。
お値段がお安いのでセールなら買ってもいいんジャマイカ。また気が向いたらプレイ時間伸ばしてもいいかな。
もうやんねー!とまでは言わなくていいゲームではある。おすすめしないに票は入れているが、クソなゲームではない。

Critical Mass is an action puzzle game where you match colored blocks to remove them. The more of a color you remove, the bigger the combo. This review is from a disabled gamer (I only play with a mouse).

http://youtu.be/a6Kdsyvsaks

Loading the game, you can easily access options and change the game to Windowed Mode. Windowed Mode is borderless so you can change windows without exiting the game. There's multiple resolutions you can set the window too. It also has Colorblind Mode which adds a symbol in addiction to the blocks color. Another option I was impressed with was the Mouse Button option that let's you swap each buttons role. There's also a single option for the mouse but it seemed to be picky on exactly where I cllicked which slowed me down. I opt'd to keep using the reversed option.

Actual game modes include Classic, Survival, Meditation and Rush. While most modes do require you to work within various time tables, Meditation is a completely untimed relaxing strategic gameplay. To play the game, rotate the mass with your left mouse button and place blocks with your right mouse button. Many games actually didn't require much rotation so I completed many levels using only 1 mouse button.

If you're a mouse user who can left & right click gameplay should be a breeze! Colorblind gamers should also be fine with colorblind option enabled. It's actually my favorite way to play.

I hate bashing on Ozzie companies. ;p And this isn't an evil, unplayable game. My first impression was good, I played it for a bit, expected to play more, had it installed forever, yet every time I fire it up, I close it after 5 minutes.

It's a match 3 game with some 3D tetris elements. The concept is good. The graphics are polished. The music isn't bad. The controls feel annoying at first, but they're actually mostly okay. The problem is, the gameplay doesn't feel satisfying. It expects (and rewards, scorewise) big combos and long term strategy. It also expects you to be fast and responsive. This should theoretically work, in that zen-like way games like this work, but it doesn't. The rythym and pacing feels all off, it feels like the speed jumps from 1,2,3,4,5 to 50 to 150. Once you get into the zone and start planning ahead for later big score combos, it feels like you blink and the game jumps speed, asking you to go for quick, "just don't make a mistake" placement. That may be totally subjective of course, or it could be that the feeling gets exacerbated by the clunky cube placement process. It simply isn't visually always obvious or easy to correctly target the location you want on a constantly rotating cube, which really hurts the game when it picks up speed. People misplace blocks on tetris too, but usually feel it's their fault, here it feels like the cube jumps place three times before you can be sure it's where it should be. By which time the game has jumped two speed gears and you're basically done with.

Again, not a bad game, in theory. I just never feel like playing it long, because it doesn't feel very enjoyable. The thumbs down is just trying to balance a "very positively" reviewed game, with an 80 something metacritic score that few people seem to actually play much (notice the curiously short play times of the majority of the positive reviewers?). So I'd suggest to approach with caution, and at least play the demo first.

They weren't kidding when they wrote up the description for this little gem. Brutally simple to learn, simply brutal to master, Critical Mass is the kind of game literally anybody can just pick up and waste hours upon hours of their lives playing, all in a vain attempt to top the charts. And don't think for a second I mean any of that in a bad way. Far from it; Critical Mass possesses a fun, addictive quality rivaled only by the likes of Tetris and similar titles.

In case you still have doubts, bear in mind that this game only costs a measely two bucks, so it won't be a serious dent in your pocketbook even if you turn out to be one of the four or five people globally who don't enjoy it (you know who you are). With that in mind, what do you have to lose? I pride myself for being more discriminating than most when it comes to choosing which games to buy with a rather limited budget, so believe me when I say Critical Mass is a nearly fool-proof purchase!

Too many puzzle games rely on complexity--Critical Mass addicts you with absolute simplicity. If you've exercised you hand-eye coordination with FPSs and have a good mind for 3D objects, you'll love this game.

If you like "mindless" puzzle games to relax your brains and give it some break from normal games, you should get this or just atleast try demo to check it out. Totally worth of 2 euros, I like these kind of games (+ music is awesome :3)!

As user [FOR]Mica aptly summarized, "Critical Mass can't decide if it wants to be frantic or strategic, and ends up being neither instead of both." If you go too long without making a combo, the block structure starts to rumble (go critical). You only have a few seconds then to make a combo, or only enough time to add a few blocks, but there's no timer or other useful indicator before the sudden explosion. There's also no indicator what the next block color will be, so you can't plan ahead much. If you were hoping to build up a bridge between two widely-spaced blocks for a big combo, well too bad, adding all those blocks in between could make the structure unstable. Even though planning for big combos is way more satisfying and yields a better score, it's like the game makes that awkward and instead pushes you for quick easy combos instead.

Worst of all IMO, the entire soundtrack is 8 measures that repeat over and over forever. It's a soothing trip-hop kind of beat, but ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ it wouldn't have killed the developer to include an actual song or three. Even Tetris had multiple tracks!

So while the basic match-4 premise of the game and the graphical polish are great (even has a colorblind mode), some of the design decisions need more time in the oven.

This game is immediately very fun, that is the first thing to note. From the very first moment you start it, you'll be hooked, and an hour will have passed before you know it. Along with the great core game, the audio and visuals are sublime. After my first session of playing this game, I started looking on Steam for it's soundtrack. The art, as well, is execlent. I haven't spent much time playing it yet, but that's going to change very soon.

My only issue with this game is that the cubes won't appear if you're using Mac OS and have the in-game overlay turned on. It is, however, a very easy issue to remedy; under your games library, right-click the title, select properties, and disable the in-game overlay. Then, everything will run fine.

A fun little game that I play when I don't want to have to think too hard, but still want to challenge myself. The controls are simple and easy to use even on a touch pad. This is one of my favorite mindless puzzle games to go to for relaxation. It is easy to get sucked in and just start a new game over and over again until you have spent hours on the game without realizing it.

A funny little game.

So I have palyed a small amount of this game, andI I can say it feels like Bejewled. Not the way it plays, but more like the fact that it`s a time killer, it`s ment for you to play like 10 minutes, and then come back to it.

The game is about maching colloured blocks, that are stuck in a cluster in the middle. There are some power ups like a time slower and a multiplier, which will come in handy.

Overall the game is really fun, and there are tons of modes to play. Of couse the goal are the same, but it becomes a bit more of a challenge, when the timer you have to work on is halved!

The problem I have with this game, is that I find it boring, much faster than many other time killer games. I don`t really know what it is. Maybe it`s the play still or the presentation, that gets me off

I give this game a thumps up. 4 out of 10

Not recommended for a few reasons, mainly - the achievements. This is because I am a big achievement hunter so when games do things like THIS game does, it really annoys me. At least 5 of the achievements (maybe more, I forget) require you to get to Rank 1 on the leaderboards in each game type as well as the Overall leaderboards. This is impossible through legitimate play as the current Rank 1 players are clearly hackers, so there is no way for anyone to claim those achievments legitimately. If they had weekly or daily leaderboards it would make much more sense. That being the main reason, this game also fails at what it claims to be "action-puzzle." Sure it can be fast paced but it's almost impossible to do extremely well just because the game lends itself to being a slow paced strategic game. You can't see your next block color, it doesn't have any indication how close you are to losing etc. Which are all sort of staples of said action-puzzle games. Don't buy it 1/10

I am usually not too much of a puzzle games guy, except maybe Tetris. But this game has really pulled me back into the genre. This is a game that I just keep finding myself playing. It's great to pass a little time. Plus I always want to replay it to try and exceed my previous score. The graphics are beautiful and the soundtrack is nice. I got it for $0.49 during the Winter Sale. Worth way more than that. Bought two more copies as gifts. Give it a go. You won't be disappointed.
