Hello people, ss4gogeta069 back again with another game review. This time it’s a fresh, brand new game that launched on July 21st. It’s called Squares and published by LEAP Game Studios. This is strictly a Playstation Vita game and once we get into it you’ll see why.
Here is the description from LEAP:
“Squares is a puzzle reflex game for PlayStation Vita that will be available in early 2015. The objective is to turn grey all the blue squares, while dealing with different kinds of squares before the time goes up. The game will feature 80 levels as well as a level editor for creating your own challenges and share them with your friends.”
LEAP Games has done a great job of making improving coordination and reflexes a lot of fun! Squares is a mix between a puzzle game and a brain trainer! It seems to mainly test and improve your hand-eye coordination and reflexes. You start out really simple with just tapping a couple of squares, as the name of the game implies. You’re timed so naturally there is some pressure and the farther you get in the game, the more difficult it becomes to complete the challenge in the amount of time given.
It’s not just tapping squares either. Some you must move, some can’t be touched and others must be double tapped. The arrows must be swiped but only toward a gray square so if you have a blue square in the way it must be tapped first. If there is a dark blue square it must be double tapped. Also, you’ll get into levels where squares appear only after you have tapped another square. The challenges never slow down. Once you think you have them down pat and can move with ease, BAM! you get hit with a new challenge.
All in all this game is a great exercise in coordination while having fun. You can get frustrated very easily but once you conquer that pesky level you’re elated at the accomplishment! For the price, I say grab this game up as it’s only $4.99 and well worth the value.
Here is a video of some gameplay to wet your appetite and get you excited to be pwned by this game!
Thanks for reading guys and as always… HAPPY GAMING!
