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.
