It's a lesson you learn very early on, the first time someone gives you a crayon: if you can make things green, suddenly everything ought to be green. So if Blobble Wars, the new addictive action game with a dash of strategy from J. Appleyard, gives you a green blobble spitting tower, then red, yellow, blue and grey towers better watch their backs, yo.
You start each level with a single green tower. All the other towers on the field are shockingly lacking in greenness. This must end. By using the mouse, you click on your tower and drag to aim at a non-green tower. Hit it with enough of your projectile blobbles, and it will turn green! Unfortunately, the other colored towers on the field do not appreciate this and will try lobbing their own blobbles. In order to win the day, you'll have to strategize and make a plan of attack to control the field, using your captured towers in harmony with each other. If the battle isn't going your way, hit [r] to restart.
Although the mouse-dragging works well enough to beat all 20 levels even on hard, it seems a little unnecessary. You're only going to be aiming at targets, so it would make for a much simpler interface if you could just click on a tower and then click on a target for the tower to attack. Just like a real melee fight, there's a certain amount of randomness once you start doing 1v1v1 and 1v1v1v1 levels. If the other colors gang up on you, you're toast. However, it's not as random as you might think. You can manipulate the AI to a certain extent because basically whenever you aim at a tower, that tower will turn to aim back at you. I rescue towers in trouble by taking a secure tower and waving its line of fire over the enemy towers, which then turn away from the weak tower and start firing at the strong one.
Colorblind players will be pleased to know that Blobble Wars has a colorblind mode in options. With four difficulty levels, Blobble Wars can accommodate any level of skill, and its twenty levels should provide a decent amount of playing time for any blobble-spitting fan.
