DoraElectro ComboKragSoft's chain reaction arcade game Electro Combo is for people who like to make things go boom without all that pesky police involvement. Your goal is to clear each stage of all the floating icons by clicking to place explosions that detonate everything in their vicinity. The catch is that each icon has a different effect and explodes in a different way, so watching and planning for just the right moment is key to getting three stars and 100% completion on each level. But it's not just about bombs, with coins floating around that can be spent on upgrades between levels when nabbed.

Though the inclusion of different elements with different behaviours for you to puzzle out is a clever idea for injecting some strategy into the genre, Electro Combo doesn't quite manage the effortless addictiveness of, say, Icy Fishes or Icy Gifts. Largely its due to how repetitive Electro Combo winds up feeling, and don't you kind of need sound effects to really capture the dazzling "popcorn for your brain" feeling that chain reaction games require? As an example of clean design wrapping up a familiar, engaging idea, however, Electro Combo is a fine specimen indeed. It's the sort of thing that fits perfectly into any sized break you have, with the stars giving you added incentive to upgrade and try for perfect, and delight the ol' ocular orbs with all the rupturing pixels your heart desires in the process.

Not quite as good as the games it's emulating, but level 28 with the laser fully upgraded is a thing to behold.

Nice game. I felt like the music gave the game a really great atmosphere, and towards the end the power ups made the game almost like a webtoy. Combine audio and visual and it makes for a really nice overall experience.

Level 35 was somehow the most difficult. Coins take too many hits. And none of the other effects seem as impressive as the laser when upgraded fully.

I can't get 3 stars on level 39, at this point it's pure luck. All items upgraded fully.

I'm hoping that once I post this, the level will complete for me.

Level 35 and 37 were my last two troublemakers. However after a lot of doing over I managed to get 3 stars on everything.

It's a nice little game, really.

Level 35 is next to impossible. I can get down to one, but cannot get them all. It needs to be a bit more than just blind luck.

Got it, finally. I still wish there was a bit more skill involved than just clicking and hoping everything goes just right.
Three stars on everything.
