52 Game Reviews: 05 Polyforge

Welcome to Jempanada’s 52 Game Review! Every week, I review a newly released game under $2 that can be easily downloaded from the App Store, Google Play store, or Sony store.

Hope everyone had an awesome Halloween! Didn’t do much, but I did have a fun weekend at the Playcrafting’s Halloween Expo! Playcrafting is a great community for people who love indie games, but doesn’t exclude developers. You’ll meet all types of people creating awesome app games, on console, or table-tops games.  They even have classes on different topics like how to market your game, develop a game through Unity, and how to create better storylines.

Speaking of Unity, this week’s game made by Unity from ImpactBlue Studios. A beautiful game called Polyforge. In the description it says, “Forge amazing crystals in a symphony of shapes, sound, and color.” Which is absolutely what it is.

My own tutorial for the game was simply watching the introduction video that’s available when you’re about to download the game in the App Store or Google Play. If you’re too lazy to watch it, then allow me to explain. A crystal is formed moving clockwise while your tiny little triangle is moving counter-clockwise. The objective of the game? To simply tap to hit all the edges of the crystal without hitting the same edge twice. Edges that already have been hit are highlighted.

Once you get the hang of it, then it’s easy-peasy moving up to the higher levels.. I must warn you that once you get up to around level 10 it does get harder. Some edges are smaller than others, so make sure you time it right, otherwise, you’ll hit the edge that’s before or after it. If you hit a highlighted edge, then you’ll have to start all over again. You do get a second chance if you watch an ad, so you don’t have to start all over again, but that is your choice if it’s worth it.

Polyforge level 13 - 6 point star
Looks easy, but it gets harder!

Honestly, this is one of the best time killer games I’ve ever played. I’m always determined to beat a level and even though I get frustrated when I mess up, I always find myself to keep going until I get it right.

Final Thoughts:

  • Super great time killer
  • Beautiful color schemes
  • Peaceful piano tones
  • 5/5 Empanada bytes
