Test your arcade-style puzzle solving skills with the connect-four game, iSquishU. While it is really enjoyable to “drip a Squishy” or even just squish it, the most delightful thing about this app are the sound effects. I dare you to play it with the sound turned up and not giggle.
As you play, just keep reminding yourself that the goal is to get at least 4 Squishies in a row and you’ll do fine… though it really is more challenging than it sounds, which is the kind of combination that makes for a really addictive and light-weight game that you won’t be able to put down once you start.
Puzzle mode delivers 80 challenging levels of play that you can use to hone your skills for the fun multi-player modes that let you choose between challenging your friends, or playing a random opponent online (using Game Center integration).
For those of you with a new iPad, the graphics have been optimized for the Retina display.
What I liked: I thought it was clever that multiplayer mode and endless mode are locked until you have played a few levels and have the hang of the game –so you are only challenging people who know how to play!
What I didn’t like: Even though there are a few instructions available from the entry page of the app, it would be helpful to have a few on-screen tips when you start playing to make it easier –because the concept really is simple once you understand it!
To buy or not to buy: This is another in the group of iOS game apps that are simple but addictive. If you’ve lost a few hours to other arcade style puzzle games, chances are good that you’ll like this one too.
