Great fun

:
Good: Challenging but not impossible, great idea for a game
Bad: Levels can be played a long time only to mess up at the very end
Bottom line: Addicting puzzler that you HAVE to keep playing because you got SO close on the last orb.

Orb is an exciting new puzzle game by Ginetix Games that keeps you wanting more. Though not as similar to the Rubik’s cube as claimed, it is still a tricky puzzler that requires some thought.

When I first looked at screenshots of Orb, I thought it would be VERY similar to the Rubik’s cube, with rotating slices. Turns out, that’s not the case at all. The triangular pieces swap positions with their neighbors, and you need to align several of the same color to make them disappear. When you clear the orb of 96% of the pieces, the next level is unlocked. It would seem that this could be extremely difficult requiring much planning. but it’s really not that bad.

One thing that really surprised me, and that I really enjoy, is that you can move several pieces together before they all disappear. For example, if I have RED, BLUE, RED, BLUE, RED, I can swap the first red and blue AND the last red and blue, before all the middle reds disappear! This is really cool, and the extra second before matching neighbors disappear can get you some crazy combos (and score multipliers).

That being said, one thing you do NOT want to do, which I did waaaay too much, was neglecting to notice when pieces will be stranded. The last thing you want is after playing for 5 minutes to not realize that this combo you’re coming up with is going to strand this blue piece and make 100% impossible for this orb. (Getting 100% unlocks some “secrets of the orb”) Once you figure out that not-stranding-pieces is the name of the game, clearing 100% of the orb is really quite a manageable task.

Like I said before- this is a game that’s hard to put down. I got 99% on the first orb, and I really think I could have gotten 100%. I saw it, but I made a silly mistake towards the end. Just a little frustrating – but not so bad that I didn’t want to try it again right away.

All in all this game is fun – it can take a little long to beat an orb, but there are a lot of cool things to look forward to. There are exploding tiles, bugs running around, orbs with thousands of tiles, among other cool things. It’s worth picking up – it’ll surely be taking up quite a bit of my on-the-train time.
