The best games in the App Store are those that are simple and unique. Zigzag definitely fits that description. This games a whole lot of fun and will keep you coming back for more. If you’ve ever played a game that you just didn’t want to put down that you kept on telling yourself just one more game, then you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into with Zigzag.

There was a game that was popular in the 1980s called Labyrinth. It was a wooden board game in which you had to navigate a marble through a maze while avoiding holes in the maze. That game has since been made into a game that can be found in the App Store and it’s probably the closest thing you’ll find to Zigzag, but Zigzag is definitely unique. There are no holes to avoid in this game just the potential to fall off a cliff at any time.
The biggest drawback with Zigzag is that it’s full of ads. The first thing you see when you open this app is a full-page ad. There are banner ads at the bottom of every page and after every couple of games you’ll have to contend with full-page ads as well. This is more than a little annoying although you can get rid of the ads if you want to purchase the ad free version from the App Store. This app will require 24.5 MB of free space on your iOS device.
How to Play
The simplest games really can be the ones that are the most fun to play and Zigzag is definitely one of these types of games. In Zigzag the idea is to keep your ball moving forward by tapping on the screen to change its direction when it’s approaching a dead end. If the ball goes off the edge it’s game over and you’ll have to start again so it’s something you’ll want to avoid at all costs.
The graphics are quite simple in this one with just basic geometric shapes like circles, squares, and triangles. As you move your ball through the maze there are gems that you can collect for bonus points as well. You can also share your high score through social media as well and there is Game Center integration so you can compare your high score against others to see how you’re really doing. Zigzag is definitely one of those highly addictive games that will keep you coming back for more.
Zigzag is a simple and addictive game that will keep you occupied for hours. The graphics are simple and clean as well. The ads are a little annoying but this one’s definitely worth downloading anyway.
