JayCrystal ClearIt isn't often that I come across an addictive browser-based Flash game with which you can play against a friend over the Web. I was pleasantly surprised to find the latest game from Gamesheep is just that kind of game. Crystal Clear is a simple casual game with gameplay similar to the classic game of Lines, and yet with some subtle differences that turn the classic into a compelling two-player battle.

The objective is to fill up your opponent's board before your own board fills up. You do this by moving tiles to create groups of five (5) or more of the same color.

Each turn you get to move a single tile. By taking your turn, three (3) tiles are automatically sent to your opponent unless you execute a combo, which can send a lot more. The larger the combo, the more tiles you give to your opponent.

Two special tiles add spice to the mix and add depth to the gameplay: a broken tile will explode when used in a combo, and thus taking out the tiles around it regardless of color; and a heart-shaped tile when moved will change the color of all tiles around it to the same color, but it will not execute the combo.

Appealing graphics and addictive gameplay, Crystal Clear is great multiplayer fun.

This game is really addicting to play with a friend. You want to just try to stack up as much as you can then you get blocks that block you path and ...well there goes your big plan.

I haven't played it yet but it sounds good, I could never get too into the 1 player 5 line games but this looks more funner
(ha! take that grammer police!)

Is everyone just too busy playing this game to comment? Because I think it is entertaining, engaging, and just frustrating enough to make it insanely addicting, yet there are only 4 comments in 12 hours.

Anyway, back to the game!

zxo - my guess is because the game looks like many other connect-3 type games, folks pass by thinking "Oh, one of those games."

It clearly is something special. =)

This is a great game, thanks for posting the link Jay. Highly addictive. The only problem is it doesn't kick your opponent if he just walks away from his computer and forces you to drop out of the game.

Very addictive. like it a Lot.
The only drawback is, that you don't get any hearts from time to time, so that the game is definitely lost.

Very nice game. The help system is spotty though.

And has anyone figured out how the bonus system works? When does one get a *2, *3, *4 bonus?

Those who are very good, please post some strategy suggestions/hints.

Thanks!

Hi DanielJ, while I wouldn't say I'm very good, I do seem to win more than I lose. The strategy I use is to keep an eye on those hearts and use them to create very large groups that can be joined together. Also, it helps if one of those tiles in the group is a broken tile, as that will creat additional collateral damage and send tons of blocks to your opponent.

It also helps to watch what your opponent is up to as well, and try to send a bunch of tiles in a timely manner to block a big manuever.

In summary, hearts and broken tiles are the keys to success with this game. Learn to use them most effectively.

Be on the lookout for Absalon or Santamontiac. THat's me. I have just over 50% win :)

Is there a version of this game where you can protect your account name with a password? I'd be all over that.

Oh man, I love this game. It's definitely unfair how you can have a dry spell with the 'heart' crystals, but it all evens out in the end.

I have won 98 games and lost only 36! That REALLY is addicting... score: 1800...

My srategy is in two parts. First, i create a lot of small an medium bunches and make them explode as soon as possible, to load the opponent's grid. Then, When he becomes a little stuck in his labyrinth, I start big bunches that I try to grow as much as I can. If possible two at the time. Then kaboom. As I made everything explode at the beginning, my grid is no too charged, wich is a big advantage to grow big bunches...

I had to create an account on that site to play it. It would be nice if guest play was allowed.

I get a 404 on this game now.

Like many online multiplayer games, there comes a time when most players drift away, and now I'm lucky to find anyone online who will play.

I know I shouldn't complain about a free game, but really, you need to make some bots when setting up a multiplayer game.
