Squares Are Better – Android Game Review
As much as I try and keep an eye out for cool new games, occasionally some slip through the cracks. That was the case with a little game called Squares Are Better by Petras Zdanavičius. Squares Are Better has been out since September, and I just ran across it last week as I was combing through the market. After spending some time with the game, I didn’t figure out if Squares Are Better (I’m partial to Hexagons), but I did find out that Squares Are Fun…
The goal is to destroy the circle with the square and you’ll launch the squares by dragging them in the opposite direction. You just need to hit the circle in order to advance to the next level. Sounds simple doesn’t it? I thought so too, but you’re going to have to get the squares to the circles and that’s not always easy. Squares Are Better has shades of Brick breaker games as most of the time the circles have a wall of blocks protecting it. This is where the game got cool for me, as you can touch a square to break it down into smaller square giving you more ammo to fire. The squares “drift” a bit though so you’ll need to be quick to get your shots lined out as the game progresses. You can also fire multiple squares at once, and if you’re careful you can gently fire the squares back into range if they drift too far away.
Squares Are Better is one of the most addictive games I’ve played recently, and it’s also one of the simplest. The game screams RETRO with its bright neon colors and the simplistic approach to the gameplay. There aren’t any real options or extras to speak of, but the game does offer up 40 colorful levels to play; hopefully the developer will add more levels in the future. Squares Are Better is a great time-killer that’s easy to pick up, but hard to put down.
