Put Your Skills to the Test with Fill The Gap from Tournesol
The game developer Tournesol is slowly becoming one of my favorites as they’ve just dropped another killer Android game with a Retro feel called Fill the Gap. If you’re a fan of Tertris or games that really put your skills to the test, you’re going to be a big fan of Fill The Gap.
Fill The Gap is not your typical line clearing block game… So says the market’s description and I’m inclined to agree. Your goal is to clear each line of blocks before it hits the bottom, and to clear a line you’ll need to fill in the gaps with blocks generated from the drawing board that runs along the bottom. I know that sounds like a “typical” block clearing game, but that’s where the similarities end. The fun comes into play as you can form any shape of blocks you need by dragging horizontally or vertically across the drawing board. Need a shape like and E lying on its side? Not a problem, you just need to draw one quickly. Points are accumulated for every block cleared that’s generated from the top, not the ones generated by you. The more you clear the more points you’ll get, and you can pull off some wicked combos to bring in the big points.
Fill the Gap has 3 different modes of play and 2 different themes with Colorful and Melancholia. Each theme has its own distinct look and feel; Colorful hits you with techno and bright colors while Melancholia slows things down with its muted tones and classical piano music. I thought the themes were a very nice touch, and mine has been set to Melancholia for the past few days now. The game allows you to play with a friend in Dual or Versus mode, and all 3 modes allow you to choose between 5-10 columns or split blocks. Like keeping score? Fill The Gap has you covered there as well with Scoreloop’s online leadboards and achievements.
Tournesol got our attention with Cannonbowl, and then smacked us in the face with a dose of awesomeness called Fill The Gap. The game manages to be simple, but fun and very challenging at the same time. The dual themes really helped sell me on the game as well; it’s always great to be able to change the entire appearance of a game to freshen things up from time to time. It’s also nice to see a game that’s 100% free for once which means you get the whole game with NO ads or in-app purchases for free. Tournesol is 2 for 2 in the game department, and I for one can’t wait to see what pops out next. You can check out Fill The Gap for free on Google Play.
