This game is an underknown little gem of minimalist gameplay.
It asks you to click some falling pills to explode them before they hit the lower part of the screen. There is a color switch system.
- Pills come in two colors, shoot the pills of the same color or switch colors anytime)
- Black flashbang pills to avoid
The gameplay has a few more subtle points: explosions push away nearby pills, pills can collide together, etc.
After every short level, you get rewarded with a circle of bonus coins you have to hit quickly. CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK !
To break the monotony every once in a while,, you get a special level with one difficulty setting pushed much higher, like much more pills onscreen ("flood" levels), or less pills onscreen with a much faster falling speed.
This is 100% skill based and feels like a nice mouse aiming / reaction time skill test.
I think the game is entirely procedural/randomized. It just gets harder until you eventually lose.
There are some bonuses here and them (items, unlockable) which you should have all unlocked in a few hours hours. Hopefully they do not distract too much from the gameplay (just like the special levels, they help break the monotony).
About the graphics: they do their job. Pretty but the readibility is good, which is absolutely necessary for a fast-paced game like this. There are some nice hommages to arcade some will catch :) With some tweaks to difficulty and items, this would sure make an excellent arcade game. If arcades still existed. Whatever.
Last but not least, the game comes with a huge amount of achievements and ... leaderboards =)
