As reported on MacWorld/MacCentral this weekend, shareware group Xenquin Software released their newest game, Elasticity for Mac OS X last Friday.
Similar to other recently-released puzzle games, Elasticity features simple yet engaging gameplay:
Elasticity is a game of tactics and good luck. When three or more bubbles of same color form a vertical or horizontal line, they disappear, allowing bubbles above them to fall down. You get score from each row you remove, and when the bonus bar on right side of the playfield overflows, you advance to the next level. You should try to get as high score as possible. (Chain reactions give a lot of score).The game also includes simple yet elegant graphics, and a funky and calming techno soundtrack that doesn't distract the gameplay. The game requires only OS X and plays on even the oldest OS X-friendly systems. A ten dollar registration fee allows players access to the game after the game's 30-day free trial period.
You move a bubble by swapping it with the one above, below, left or right to it. If the move does not form any rows, it is not valid. When you run out of moves (e.g. cannot swap any two bubbles to form any row), the game ends.
Elasticity is the latest addition to Xenquin Software's roster, which includes Blockforge, a tetris knockoff, Cave Bombers, and the classic Reversi Unlimited, which have all been released in the last two weeks.
