Reviews

“If you’re a puzzle gamer or even just a casual gamer who likes to play a bit of Bejeweled, give this one a look, as all the elements come together here to create a unique and, more importantly, worthwhile experience.”
8.5/10 – Harry Hughes, MMGN

“Clickr is charmingly addictive, and gets better the longer you play it, as you brain works it all out better and gets nippy at finding those combos.”
Michael Rose, IndieGames

“In terms of design and presentation, I got a kick out of the weird, annoying “It’s A Small World”-on-crack music and SFX, the smooth vectors graphics and sugary Harajuku animation. Don’t have much to complain about.”
4/5 – Indie Game Freak, Indie Game Reviewer

Note:
*Multiplayer is buggy but still working. Both of you need to restart the game each time if you want to rematch. Otherwise the game will stuck on "starting" or "loading", or you will get empty black box on opponent's space.
*You can change to windowed mode by pressing Alt+Enter.
*If you liked songs or BGMs of the game, you can find it on Data/Sound_Default foulder with "BG_~" names.

The game rule is really simple.
You can remove a block by clicking it, and you need to make a big (2x2) block in order to get points or attack to your opponent. Also, you can rotate the board to change a direction blocks move.
On earlier stages or easy difficulty you can enjoy the game at your own pace. But as you continue the game, you will be required to search for a best block to remove as fast as you can. Both of clicking speed and perfect combo.

There are 4 modes. Puzzle, Battle, Push, IQ.
Puzzle is a stage clearing mode that contains 50 stages. You need to do some certain things like "XXXX points within XX seconds" or "XX combos within XX seconds". Each stage has unique board that will give you challange and fun.

Battle and Push modes are play against AI with different way. It's better to see the trailer how those modes are different.
Above normal or hard difficulty, AIs are really tough. So I'm sure you won't be bored by easy and liner AI.

IQ mode is a classic puzzle. There are pre-made boards that need correct solution to remove all blocks.
If you are looking for a puzzle game that can be played without any hurry, probably this mode is best for you. Other modes have time limit or opponent.

At the beginning of this game, you only have Puzzle mode to select. You need to unlock other modes or skins by collecting "CUBE"s.
CUBEs are gained by beating the stage or AI, so if you want to unlock another mode or difficulty, you have to play well. I think this is nice motivation to play, at least it won't disturb or annoy you from playing the game.

Graphics&Sounds are cute, that makes you to feel relax while playing.

Since Clickr has some bug on multiplayer and difficulty is not acceptable for everyone, I think this game won't be a best choice from all of the puzzle games.
But forusing on singleplayer and bit hard difficuly, cute looking, this is a nice puzzle game that is able to spend 10+ hours.
Also, the dev decreased price to half ($5 from $10) later 2013, and included it in a indie bundle and added trading cards now, so you can expect some newcomers.

If you are looking for some puzzle game that is different from old-fashioned style and tough enough to annoy you, I think this game is worth the price.

"Not your usual match3."
In this game, you match 4 small blocks into 1 big block which can then be linked to other same colored small blocks. Constantly popping the blocks net you a combo bonus. However, instead of just matching elements, you can turn the board around to create big blocks. Clockwise or anticlockwise - it's all up to you. In doing so, you can achieve Magic Turn.

You can see from the screenshots, there are red, blue and green blocks. There's also star and stone blocks. Star blocks act like a wild card. Popping it beside any normal block will turn it into the same color. Forming a big star block and popping it will clear the whole board - useful in sticky situations. Stone blocks are basically obstacles. You can only get rid of them if you form a big stone block and pop it. That will clear the whole board of stone blocks - but the reprieve is short.

"Clickr is many games in one."
There are four different modes: Puzzle, Battle, Push, and IQ. Each of them has different sub-modes as shown below:-
PUZZLE: Stage, Combo, Point
BATTLE/PUSH: Easy, Normal, Hard, Extreme, Geekplay, Self
IQ: Easy, Normal, Hard

For stage mode, there are 50 levels. Fifty set tricky levels that will take a lot of head-scratching to clear them all. More so if you are aiming for no. 1 clears. Combo and Point modes are like their names, you aim to get the most number of combos and the highest points with a random board.

Battle and Push modes are also available to play via multiplayer*. For the single player mode, you play them versus the AI.
In a twist, for Battle mode, the blocks you pop become your minions which you then send out to "battle". If your opponent's minions reaches your home base, you get damage and when you reach zero hp, you lose. Big star blocks here will cause all your opponents minions to fall on the battleground. Big stone blocks will turn into mines which will eat up the first opponent minion that dare step on it.
For Push mode, the idea is simpler. Each of you has to try your hardest (and fastest) to cause the blocks in the middle to fall on your opponent's side. Constantly popping red blocks for example, will push the red block out towards your opponent. Stone blocks are use to 'hold' the block in place - very useful when you are in danger.
The self modes of each, are basically you playing against a 'ghost' of yourself. Ie. your previous runs. Geekplay is particularly horrifying and shows how sadistic the devs are. They are almost impossible to beat unless you are a pro at this game.

Lastly, IQ mode. Basically awesome enough to standalone by itself as a game. The levels are set and your aim is to pop every single block on the board.

The conclusion is this is one epic game. It is casual enough for those 5 minutes play sessions and also challenging enough that you will get hooked for hours trying to beat that mode and still not beat it. Not everyone will love all the modes - I for one particularly dislike Push mode but you will definitely find something to like - IQ mode for me.

*Multiplayer mode is buggy. Has been since the start and will likely always be. It does work...with some patience. Rematching (or playing two matches in a row) is known to NOT work until both players restart the game entirely.

Looking at the screenshots for this game, you might expect an brainless, match-3 type of puzzle game (I know I did)... but it's NOT SO! Surprisingly tricky, and with a multitude of ways to play, Clickr is a bargain for those who enjoy puzzle games.

Clickr belongs to the "connecting squares of the same colour to form bigger squares" genre, but gives it an interesting spin (literally) by incorporating 90 degree rotations of the board. Create a combo via rotating and you'll get a "Magic Turn", which will give you big bonuses... and you'll need them, as you'll need big scores in short amounts of time to advance in Puzzle mode (the first available mode).

In addition to Puzzle Mode (which also includes other modes in itself), there is also Battle, Push, IQ, and Multiplayer. These are unlocked either by accumulating cubes earned by passing levels or by playing matches, or by getting certain achievements.

Battle and Push are both speed-based action modes. In Battle, monsters are sent to your side of the screen, and by creating combos you send out little monsters of your own to stop them, and attack. In Push, you play against the AI; creating combos of a colour pushes a giant block toward onto your opponents side, if they don't create their own combos of the same colour to push back, it will fall on their side--if enough blocks fall, they lose. Of course, all the while you're pushing blocks on their side, they're pushing blocks on you. Even on Easy, I found both of these modes quite hard!

IQ (my favourite mode) requires you to clear the board without clicking on any non-combo squares. I prefer the slow pace!

I haven't tried the Multiplayer option yet, but I've read in the discussion forum that there is a bug in which you cannot directly rematch an opponent, but have to exit and re-enter the game. That's unfortunate, as judging from my brief experience with the Push mode against the AI, an MP-version would be quite fun.

As frosting, the art is quite cute and the presentation of menus, UI, etc is simple, but very slick. There are also different skins to unlock. The music is happy with a retro sort of feel to it; in fact, with its cutesy voices, happy sound effects, and overall look, the general presentation reminds me a bit of Chu Chu Rocket.

Clickr may not have the deepest gameplay ever (my spatial judgment is not great, so the game may be harder for me than it would be for others), but it incorporates enough different features in gameplay to make it fresh. For $5 or less, you get a lot of bang for your buck, and puzzle fans should find a lot to enjoy.

Sometimes funny, sometimes frustrating, but for sure very positive and enjoyable. I like this graphics style and also in-game sounds are not annoying. Difficulty level oscillates between piece of cake and ridiculous... Many game modes which I did not unlocked yet, but for sure I'll try them out in future!
4/5 from me :-)

This game is really cute. It reminds me of Yosumin and Lumines. You have to rotate a square (the size differs depending on the mode) and matching squares to make a 4x4 square out of smaller squares and if any squares are touching a big square of the same color (there's 4 colors), then those wil get cleared in the process as well, hence the more squares you have connected, the more points you score. You have a handful of different modes you can play (3 of them you have to unlock) as well as a multiplayer mode (I have yet to try it out but I'm sure it works). As for the control scheme, you can choose between left and right handed controls but since I'm not left handed this is going to cover the right handed controls. You can use either the e and w keys to rotate the board or the mouse wheel on your mouse/touch pad (I tend to find the e and w keys to be the faster option but to each their own), and you use the left mouse click to select squares. Another thing I'll mention, although its not important, if you click the ufo at the top of the main menu, you can view the opening video again anytime you want to. Not sure how important that info is but I'm sure there's people out there that like watching opening videos more than once. Lastly, there is a noticible difficulty curve so do watch out for that as the game can become overwhelming if you aren't prepared for it to move faster than expected when you go up a difficulty (or it was a little bit overwhelming for me as I was still getting the hang of the game).

As of this writing, Clickr is currently on sale for .99 during the 2014 steam summer sale, and will be that price until June 30th, so hurry and get this while the price is low.

The game has it's moments, it can be fun and frustrating (like many games).

Game has many different modes, Puzzle, Battle, Push, IQ, as well a Multiplayer.
However, Multiplayer has not worked since i bought the game years ago.

50 Puzzle Stages (although some are really hard). They give you conditions you have to beat in xx amount of time.
I originally got stuck on Stage 21, even weeks on and off playing, still couldn't beat it.
Now stuck on Stage 41.

Battle Mode has 6 Difficulties to play on (some you will have to spend ingame Cubes to unlock).
Easy, Normal, Hard, Extreme, Geek Play, and Self (uses your data).
Geek Play has 6 options to choose from: Clone, Star, Stone, Big, Rush, and Hell.

Push Mode has 6 Difficulties to play on (like Battle Mode).
Easy, Normal, Hard, Extreme, Geek Play, and Self.
Geek Play has 2 options to choose from: One Color and Hell.

IQ Mode basically gives you Puzzles to complete.
IQ Mode has 3 Difficulties: Easy, Normal, and Hard.
Easy Mode has 40 Puzzles (5 Pages of 8 Puzzles).
Normal Mode has 92 Puzzles (11 Pages of 8 Puzzles, + 4 more on Page 12)
Hard Mode has 83 Puzzles (10 Pages of 8 Puzzles, + 3 more on Page 11)

If you want a casual game and don't mind puzzles, you should like this game.
Just note that Multiplayer doesn't work, or I haven't been able to get it to work.
