Color Surge (Mobile)

In this falling block match three puzzle game for iOS and Android (reviewed on iPad here), you must guide colored circles in columns and switch their colors so they match three when they hit the bottom.  If you can match colors, they’ll disappear.  If this sounds exactly like Columns, you’re right!  I’m surprised SEGA hasn’t released that one on mobile.  Or maybe they have and I don’t know it.  It’s hard to keep up with all those mobile releases.  Anyway, Color Surge is free to play, but you can buy more modes once you download it.

Anyway, the base game plays exactly like Columns.  If you can make chain reactions, you’ll get a higher score.  The game is over when your pieces reach the top of the well.  You control the pieces with virtual buttons on the bottom screen. You can move them left or right, rotate colors, and send them down quickly.

The in-game shop lets you buy other modes and remove ads.  I got a code that removed the ads, but I couldn’t figure out how to unlock the other modes.  There’s one where the blocks are arranged in a hex pattern, and a similar one but they add gravity so the pieces fall.  I imagine it’s like that one puzzle game in Clubhouse Games on the Switch.  About the only problem I could find with this game is that they don’t give you a lot of time to switch colors once the pieces hit the bottom and the next piece comes on top.  But if you like Columns, you may want to check this one out.

Kid Factor:

Nothing violent or objectionable here.  Reading skill is helpful for some of the text, but not necessary just to play.  Parental supervision is recommended for the ads and in-game purchases.
