Default Sparkle - the Game - by 10tons (v1.06 GameCenter)




Already TOFTTed a copy. Will post impressions in a few minutes!

Do we have a good replacement for Stoneloops! of Jurassica here?

Be careful, Mumbo Jumbo may try to bully you around

This looks beautiful and I love Azkend and Stoneloops. I'm eager to hear some impressions!

Because it's weighty?

I say get this fast for everyone interested. And if it sells too well it'll be pulled in a instant. Hmm, will this actually guarantee good sales?

Has somebody come up with a cut and paste app creator for wannabe devs?

O.k., been playing for a few minutes only and already fell deep in love with that game!

It is a marble shooter, like Atlantis: Sky Patrol, Stoneloops! of Jurassica and other marble shooters.

The graphics are crisp and clean with a very nice (dark) art style. It is - like always when it comes to games from 10tons Ltd - highly polished and running smooth on my iPhone.
The soundtrack and the sound effects are great! One of the best tracks I ever heard on my device. The music fits perfectly into that game and the effects add even more atmosphere to that game.

Sparke comes with 3 game modes:
- Quest mode (where you are playing through a story, including own decisions and maps)
- a challenge mode, locked at first but unlocked after two levels of Quest play (did not play that yet)
- a survival mode (has yet to be unlocked).

The game has also a bunch of archievements you can earn.
And there are hidden secrets you can find and solve (from game to the options screen, they are hidden everywhere. Try stopping all 4 balls in the options menu, for example... ).

Controls are simple, intuitive and easy. Just tap and the marble flies to where you want it to be. Tap your shooting device to swap marbles. Shoot at the rows and at power ups.
In the instructions screen (how to play), you can test every function for yourself before trying in gameplay.

They should add leaderboard support, like OF... did not found that yet.

I'd say we found a nice replacement for Stoneloops!

I'll add my score later when I know more about the other game modes, replay value and overall content.

Don't think so. Atlantis: Sky Patrol is still in the Store and hasn't been pulled yet. Because that's a "Big Fish" for Mumbo Jumbo. They don't dare to compete with them.

And also, gameplay varies a bit from Luxor and Atlantis: Sky Patrol... you don't target with your shoot device and release for a shot. you tap the screen to target the ball.
