Collision Effect is a simple game, perfect for micro gaming sessions where you need eye candy to help fill the gaps in your day.
By Brad Russell
A cross between Geometry Wars and Cut the Rope, Collision Effect packs boxes of eye candy into mini puzzles where you set star dust on collision courses.
The default game has 60 or so puzzles where the objective is to combine like colored stars so that only one star of each color is present. You cannot have stars collide with opposing colors, and to assist you can adjust the speed of the game. And thats the whole game; you tap stars to pull them together in what may actually be fluctuating difficulty. Sometimes youll get a puzzle that seems impossible, and then follow that up with several easy levels. Purists will not like the broken I win hint button that reveals itself in every level after several fails to give you the first step in the solution given only a few colors in each puzzle the remaining moves wont be hard to figure.
The game looks gorgeous with splashy particle effects for both vapor trails and collisions. There is one additional mode called Survival where you get moving stars in waves and combine them in the same way as the puzzles. And there is no more to say because thats the whole game.
