The Reactor is a classic arcade game with a few new twists. Featuring swipe controls and gameplay customization, The Reactor is a fun way to burn time and bring volatile reactors under control! The Reactor includes 3 different game play modes: CLASSIC, MELTDOWN (New!), and CONTAINMENT (New!).

CLASSIC - Eliminate a set of radioactive elements without breaching the reactor while watching for surges (optional) and working around lead obstacles (optional).

MELTDOWN - The reactor has gone nuclear and only you can keep it at bay. Radioactive elements are continuously being added to the reactor and its your job to eliminate them to prevent a breach.

CONTAINMENT - While somewhat innocent looking enough in the beginning, Containment mode quickly can get out of hand as each Radioactive element produces waste elements periodically. Its your challenge to eliminate all the active elements before a breach can occur.

For the next level in your Nuclear Physicist career, challenge a friend or foe in multiplayer mode to a race for containment.

The Reactor takes place deep in a secret power plant where all that stands between nuclear fallout and containment is your skills as a nuclear physicist. Use special neutralizing agents to eliminate dangerous active agents in the reactor. Get 4 or more of the same color in a row to eliminate the active agents. However, due to the instability of the reactor, random and dangerous surges are known insert undesired agents into the reactor (optional gameplay). Clear them out before things get out of control! For an extra challenge, turn on lead obstacles and see if your skills can handle it.

For gameplay controls, players can touch and drag on screen to skillfully place agents in either left, right, or downward directions. Also simply tapping anywhere on the screen will rotate an agent pair.

Scores are saved in one of the 5 the newly integrated global OpenFeint leader boards. Now you can compare your own standing to the rest of your fellow physicists. 16 New achievements have been added to stretch your limits and test your inner skillz.

Features:
- 3 Single player game modes with up to multiple levels of gameplay and 3 different speeds
- Optional random surges in all game modes
- Lead elements in certain game modes for an extra challenge
- Great visuals, music, and sound effects
- 2 Multiplayer connection options-Either WiFi or Bluetooth (bluetooth requires a 2nd generation device)
- 5 new global leaderboards
- 16 new achievements
- Touch, drag, and optional button controls

Guys I'mma have to bump this. It may be in a bit of poor taste to say "we ripped off dr. mario" but its really well done and hey nintendo isn't doing it are they?

seriously though, it's a good game. very well done. and free. don't miss it, and if you never played it, try it out, its a good block falling game.

the most important thing is that the touch controls don't suck. UGH did you try lumines and tetris? this guy needs to sell his code to them, he got it JUST right IMO. it's just...nice to play.

anywhoo, that's my .02. Don't miss it.

P.S. dev this game isn't actually on freeappaday.com? sup with that?

to the dev: I left a 4-star review. it would be really nice if there was a full screen mode and if there was a shadow that shows where your piece is gonna land, it can even be darkening the whole column its in...but those are relatively minor. thanks for making the game free for a day, I've actually kind of wanted a dr mario since my wii broke. and the bluetooth multi is GREAT! my moms a huge dr mario fan too and we play 2-player with it, thanks
