Puzzle games were among the first genres to hit mobile devices – games like Astraware’s infamous Bejeweled have become bestsellers. Gross Games SpinBalls wants to combine puzzle and action…but can it impress?
SpinBalls is played on a grid made up of balls – these balls must be rotated to create groups of at least three adjacent balls. These can then be removed by pressing the button at the bottom of the screen, refilling the timer in the process:
The four large bubbles on the sides can be charged by destroying groups of balls close to them – when enough balls have been loaded, the charge becomes available.
Charges have extremely interesting features. One of them stops the timer, the other doubles the score:
The two other charges clean up the playing field.
In the end, it is difficult not to like this game – addicting to the extreme. Definitely get the free trial to see if you like the concept – the price of 6 USD is more than ok…
