Compulsive app review: get these colors organized



We've got a game that mixes challenge with fun and beauty for an offering you won't be able to put down. The Compulsive app can be played on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and requires players to get the palette of colors all organized and matched up. The game uses really simple controls and rules so anyone can pick it up but it's very difficult to master, which is exactly why it's so addictive. This one can be played for all ages and because it is integrated with Game Center you can challenge your family and friends.

Match Up the Colors

The Compulsive app requires players to match the colors in this puzzle-based game. Yes the concept is that simple but don't get too excited because all isn't as it seems. There are a few different game modes for you to enjoy which are Zen, Strategy, and Arcade. Each mode has its own feel and you'll find they are all challenging in their own way. The app supports Game Center, achievements, and the leaderboards. Games can be as long or as short as you want ranging from unlimited moves and time, to 30 moves only, or just 60 seconds per game.

Simple Rules

The Compulsive app features some very simple rules. All you need to do is drag around the colored tiles on the game board so that they join with another tile of the same color. You need to join at least four tiles in order to get points and clear them off the board. If you manage to clear more than one group of tiles with just one move you'll get bonus points. There are a number of power-ups that can help improve your gameplay in a big way so you'll want to try to take advantage of these. As well if you play on a daily basis you'll be able to earn an additional 1,000 tiles.
