Conlan and Dr. K. give us something original for the iPhone!

:
Unlike many of the other Dr. Knizia ports on the iPhone, this is something he designed with Conlan Rios as an original iPhone game.

Your objective is to make sets, meaning a group of three tiles in one of the game's 8 little 3 tile rows that all share some common attribute (color, type of symbol, or number of symbols). Making a group that matches in multiple ways is worth even more points. For even more points yet, if you manage to make scoring sets in the same row on both sides of the center column, both scoring sets will get a little bonus to their values. The tiles come down the center of the screen and can only be flicked left or right. Flick a tile off to the left or right and all of the tiles above it will drop down down a space to fill in the gap. There is no clock in the primary game mode so you can take as long as you want to plot your moves out. Once you've managed to flick out enough tiles the game will increase in difficulty by either adding a new color of tile, a new symbol, or even a higher potential number of symbols (initially the tiles only have 0-2 symbols on them). While this makes creating the sets harder, all scoring sets made are worth more points. Rows are not cleared from the board until the bottom rows are filled with tiles (scoring or not) and the game will continue clearing rows out until it hits a row that hasn't been completely filled on both sides. All of this fun ends the second, while clearing rows, the game hits double X's (two side by side non-scoring sets). The game even makes your impending doom clear by changing the graphics of the two side by side X's to skulls...a clear indication of a bad thing. So is there anything to help you undo bad moves or to get that desperately needed tile in the center column down a space even though you can't use any of the tiles currently beneath it? You bet! As you score points you'll notice that little jeep in the lower left get closer and closer to his base camp. Once he reaches his tent you'll get a stick of dynamite which you can use to blast away any tile in the game (in the center column or already placed in one of the rows). Don't worry if you don't have any immediate use for the stick as you are allowed to store an infinite amount (not that you're likely to ever have more than a couple of storage at a time).

5/5 stars

Truly Original and Immersive

A great game that perfectly combines deep problem solving and planning ala Reiner Knizia with a fluid, seamless, iPhone game experience from Conlan. Very highly recommended.
