PowerballsAlthough I prefer to offer a wide array of games and genres over featuring games that are similar to those already reviewed, once in a while I come across a clone that offers something different in terms of gameplay that I feel is worth mentioning. Powerballs is a clone of Lines, as was the recently reviewed Bloomin' Gardens.

What I like about Powerballs is that not only does the game display the colors of the balls that will appear next turn, it does so by indicating the space that each ball will appear. This is helpful, albeit incrementally so, since you can move an existing ball to one of those spaces and force the game to reposition the incoming ball to a different location (the color may change as well).

Additionally, this game seems to be a more solid implmentation of Lines than Bloomin' Gardens is. Add to that the gameplay feature mentioned above and Powerballs comes out smelling more like a rose. The difference in graphics is merely a matter of preference between the two. Click.

Fun, and interesting. And finally I can understand why Bloomin Gardens wouldn't let me plant certain flowers in certain spaces. :P The only thing that annoys me is the fact that the two different shades of blue are so similar. It's just one is a small shade lighter. I was lining up blue dots, and realized they weren't going away, then saw that one dot was a tad lighter than the other.

Good call, Grace. The two blues are indeed a bit too close for comfort.

Although I enjoyed the nice blooming flowers of Bloomin' Gardens, this one seems a bit easier to figure out graphically due to its simplicity of style, color choices notwithstanding. =)

You ever start playing a game, only to stop later wondering what happened to a large chunk of time? Playing it is pretty much like that. It's so simple in design and practice, yet challenging enough to keep you clicking "Replay" each time. Plus I like the fact that the balls look kind of like clay or play-dough. ^_^ Cool find.

this is very similar to atomica, except I like atomica better because it has nice sound effects

Er, I'm not even sure how you play or what the goal is.
