Product Description

NEXT is a matching puzzle game for Kindle that is easy to learn, but hard to master.

The objective of the game is to clear all the pieces off the game board. Game pieces disappear when they are matched with, and touch, other game pieces with the same symbol. Your job is to move the game pieces around the game board to make this happen. Clearing the board allows you to move the next level.

The challenge is that if you don't plan ahead, you might not be able get the pieces to the right location because they are blocked by other game pieces. Because sometimes there are an odd number of a certain types of game pieces, if you match them too soon, you risk leaving stray game pieces behind and then you won't be able to finish the level.

NEXT includes 128 levels of varying difficulty and is easy to learn, but hard to master -- give it a try, and you'll see what we mean!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Next Puzzle Game" should be your next puzzle game! November 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
Okay, it's not a word game, and it doesn't take a genius to play it. You don't have to come up with long words, and the game is pretty simplistic in design. And it doesn't have cute pandas. And those are just some of the reasons to like this game!

If you like a change from the usual word-type games, this is a perfect game for your Kindle. Sure, we've all seen this type of game for years, but that was on our computers. This is a Kindle, and as such it cannot handle the really complicated games (yet). When you consider what type of game COULD be played on a Kindle, this logic/puzzle game fits the bill perfectly.

Yes, you have to think out your moves ahead of making them. Most puzzle games are like that. You COULD just make moves without thinking, but then you'd have to re-start the level you are on if you make a bad mistake. As far as this game wearing out your 4-way pointer, as one reviewer mentioned, I doubt that will happen any more than playing word games will wear out your letter buttons.

The idea of this game is to place identical squares next to each other to make them disappear. When all squares are gone, you have won the level. When multiple identical squares exist, you must be careful not to match them in a way that you end up with only ONE of that square left, as this will lose the level for you. Some of the later levels get pretty complicated and require much thinking to solve them.

There are 128 levels in this game, separated into blocks of 64 each. One cool plus to this game is the fact that you can see a list of all 128 levels on one page. It shows you, with check marks, which levels you have solved, and allows you to pick ANY level to play. You do not have to slowly work your way to the hardest level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Addictive November 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of logic computer games rather than action games, and this is my new favorite! Every time I finish a level, I tell myself, "OK, just one more." Then ten levels later I'm still playing...

I've found some kindle games annoying to use because it can be difficult to highlight the right item, but Next is super easy - it is all about the strategy.

A must have!

I purchased this game because I prefer puzzle games over word or killing games. I love to be challenged and keep my brain stimulated. In fact, one level (level 28) was so challenging that I was forced to email mobigloo and ask for helpful hints. I sent the request late Saturday evening and I received a response early Sunday. It has been quite sometime since I have received that level of customer service and technical support!

The goal of the game is to eliminate all of the game pieces by matching them in groups of 2...3... This is similar to Tetris, Dr. Mario, Block Breaker, Bubble Breaker...etc.

With Tetris, you lined up shapes and colors, with Dr. Mario it was colored pills (half or whole), but with Next it is squares, circles, triangles, stars, etc and you have the wall of one game piece touch the wall of the corresponding piece (or pieces for those sets of 3 by dropping it between two pieces or connecting two corresponding pieces).

I hope you found this helpful.
A.

4.0 out of 5 stars varied levels of difficulty intermixed May 21, 2011
the first several levels are very easy ... sort of more a tutorial as to how it works ... after about level 20 the difficulty seems varied rather than steadily increasing ... then you hit a real poser at 26 or 28 but right after that they get a bit easier again ... so the progression is not steady and if you get stuck you can skip it and come back later ... i also found a tough nut in the mid 40s and a couple in the 50s ... if you revisit a solved level you can replay it so more than one person can try a hand ... overall an interesting and absorbing logic and spatial exercise ... i have been playing intermittently for a week and have not completed the first set of 64 yet ... one level can take 5 minutes or an hour depending on insight

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Basic for the Price November 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
I love Kindle-based puzzle games and have bought every single one of them as soon they appeared on the market. Unfortunately, NEXT is pretty much my least favorite of them all. Graphically, it is quite primitive, especially in comparison with a lot more sophisticated SCRABBLE or Panda Poet.

Moving the pieces around with Kindle's five-way pointer is quite tedious. You solve the puzzle in your head first and then spend the next 15 minutes trying to move all the pieces around in a very repetitive and boring set of movements. I also have a feeling that playing this game on a regular basis might end up damaging or wearing out the pointer. This primitive game is definitely not worth damaging the Kindle.

The game has 65 levels but they all look so much the same that the game become very boring after the first couple of levels. There are so many games of the same type that are a lot more sophisticated available online that it makes no sense to buy such a basic version on Kindle. If the game cost $0.99, it might make sense to buy it and see if you like it. However, at the current price of $2.99, the game is mostly a waste of money. I can't imagine playing it more than a couple of times because it gets too monotonous.

will this game work on Ipod touch?
You can continue to ask them but I do not think most of the games transfer like the books do. I think they only download to the kindles...but so many other things are fine to send to the Ipod touch and other apps.
