Ka-Glom (NOW 99 cents!!!)

itunes link - $2.99 (now 99 cents)


One of the most popular mobile puzzle games of all-time comes to iPhone! Over 5 million downloads since the gameís debut in 2006.

Combine the explosive Ka-Glom jelly to blast blocks and get the ultimate chain reaction.

Ka-Glom is a high-pressure game of falling blocks. Of the two block types, only the Ka-Glom jelly is explosive. Connect four Ka-Gloms of the same color to start an explosive reaction that eliminates all connecting blocks of that color. In building huge chain-reacting explosions, your Ka-Glom Factor increases and your bonus points multiply.

Play in Survival mode for a classic puzzle experience or try some deep thinking with the Puzzle mode.

If the gameplay is similar to mean bean machine by sega, I'll buy it.

Hmm...game seems fun but I don't like the exploding animation, too pokemonish for my taste. I think more of a gooey explosion would be better.

Well first off if you loved mean bean machine by sega, then you'll enjoy this.

The gameplay has you make four or more gloms (the balls) touch to make them explode.
You can make combos by setting them up right. Thankfully, I have MBM experience =D

The graphics are really colorful and have decent animations, but I agree the explosions could be better.

There are a bunch of different modes, and a well made tutorial.

The game however, has awful, boring cheery music. It's better to just turn on your own to not fall asleep.

It uses swipe touch controls, and works fairly well. I wish it had a quicker response time though.

It also has online high scoring, but the top ten is complete madness, and I suspect hax or nerds =P

It's worth a dollar, and is a well made puzzler.
