Fractal: Make Blooms not War (Nth Review)
This game has a few problems: The difficulty curve is rather wavy, going up and down through the levels. Some are ridiculously easy and some are not only pretty hard, but also depend on luck - because your starting field is randomized in campaign mode, you can get everything from a 60 points head start to an unsolvable mess.
The graphical presentation is nice, but doesn't go beyong functional, really. Same goes for the Sound.
The game modes are fairly diverse, though the campaign is rather "puzzle"-y, safe for the previoulsly mentioned randomness - which can be really annoying and warrents constant restarts. The puzzles are pretty good and serve as the only "sort-of" tutorial, because a really detailed introdution is missing. The arcade mode is boiled down to frantic clicking, which becomes a bit more strategic with practice.
All in all this is a nice puzzler, with some rather annoying problems. If you're looking for a small game to play in between other things to do, this fits the bill. But it is no game to sit back and relax, because it will annoy you from time to time.
Rating: Only just recommendable.
