    Compulsive's review

    Published: 2013-07-11, by .

    Compulsive is a color-matching puzzle game set in minimalist graphics

    • Addictive as hell
    • Local and Facebook friends ranking
    • Animations and sound
    • Minimalist graphics
    • Touchscreen response
    • No global leaderboards
    • Only one game mode

    "Guys, I'm addicted to these colored-tiles"

    This is one of the oldest concept on gaming history: match 4 or more tiles of the same color to clear them from the board and score as many points as you can in 60 seconds. However, the folks at TMSOFT managed to make it beautiful and highly addictive.

    Maybe is due to its sober and minimalist graphics or to its excellent touchscreen response when swiping tiles or, maybe, it's just that this gameplay perfectly fits mobile gaming: it's one of those timewasters perfect to play while waiting the bus or queuing. Whatever the reason, Compulsive isn't one of those childish 3-matching games full of animals, gems and fireworks. This goes straight to the issue: colored squares, white background, swipe to move, score as much as you can. Period.

    There are local leaderboards but since beating your own records would become boring after a while, you can also add Facebook friends and try to beat their personal best. In order to achieve it you should keep in mind that combos will multiply your score and that glowing tiles of a specific color from the board.

    Animations and sounds are great. Only two lacks: first, a global leaderboard would make the game even more challenging and, second, different game modes would increase playability.

    I am not a narcissist; therefore the desire to post every f-ing game score isn't there. Any game that requires social media posting to get anywhere is NOT a game worth playing.

    This is a great game. Youll be soo. restarting over and over to get a good start and then racing to make squares to get to 400+.
