TrickySticky LinkyHi! It's Tricky, with a special offer sure to fulfill all your casual casual gaming needs. Move over, Vince, there's a new brand of schticky in town, and it's much more browser compatible! You're gonna love this game! It's Sticky Linky, an arcade physics puzzler from Sergey Batishev's Gluey Games! You'll match colors! You'll build wobbly structures! You'll see them crash to the ground after an unfortunate move! No other game is gonna do that!

You following me, camera guy? Let me tell you how it works. In the game, you use the mouse to click chains of blobs of the same color in a free-standing linked structure, to make them disappear. What you want to do is click the chains in ways that will link them up with Creatures of the same color. They'll disappear along with the colored chain if you click it, and the goal of each level is to collect a given number of creatures. A new Creature is spawned when a chain of five or more blobs is clicked. You only have a certain amount of clicks, limited by your "mana". However, selecting a colored chain with a power-up will give you extra clicks, or explode surrounding blobs. More colored blobs will be added to the structure after every click. Be careful though! if too many blobs are added, the structure might dip below the surface of the water, which will cause it to rise and destroy the bottom level of your tower. Later levels will reverse the gravity, take place underwater (where gravity is less of a problem, but there are hungry fish to fend off), or at night (where new creatures won't spawn). There are 24 campaign levels, plus a Zen Mode, where you can just click and play around with the blobs like one of those desktop magnetic sculptures.

For Sticky Links, first impressions can be deceiving. The cartoony visuals and relentlessly cheery music might've been taking from any of a dozen fun-if-slightly-generic physics puzzlers featuring various bleeps, blobs, bloops, blips, or blorps crashing into each other. However, below the surface of Sticky Links lurks surprising gameplay depth. With mechanics that combine cool aspects from both World of Goo and Collapse, new elements are introduced at just the right rate to make the game complex, without being complicated. It strikes that perfect balance of strategy and randomness that'll eat up a half hour of your time without you even realizing it. So, what are you waiting for? Act now! Operators are standing by!

Play Sticky Linky
