Polarium is a game with a simple concept: you're given a pattern of white and black blocks, and your tool is the ability to draw a line through it. Each block it passes through switches color. To clear a puzzle, you need to use one unbroken line to fix all of the rows of blocks on-screen so that each individual row is either all black or all white. If you've played the DS version before, you probably remember that it was challenging, but kind of stark and repetitive. With no special blocks to break up the black-and-white monotony, it got kind of tiring. The stylus control was a good showcase of the DS's abilities, but it was also easy to mess up with all those tiny squares, not to mention you could be blocking your line of sight.

The GBA game fixes all of this. You can change the 'skin' of the blocks you're playing with in the 365-puzzle Daily Mode (which you can play straight - there's no limit to how much you can do in a day), which lets you add a dash of color if you want it. Plus there are new blocks to add to the challenge. When you clear a row of hurdle blocks, everything above it falls into the spaces below. If they don't also make rows of the same color, then you have to change your approach. You'll also get X'ed out blocks in corners and along the edges of the field, which may force you to rethink a puzzle that would have been easy otherwise. Finally, there are Joker tiles, which are not affected by your color-changing line and instead turn into the color of the solid tiles only if they're all the same color.

There's more, too. The first time through a puzzle, you can do it any way you want. Then you can go through it again, and you'll get two markers on the screen.

Your playing field is a grid patterned with squares of two colors and neutral border squares. Your goal is to make each row the same color by drawing a single non-crossing path which will flip the squares to the opposite color.

There are three new special types of squares(that are not found in the original DS version, which BTW is also worth getting): ones that block parts of the border limiting your solution pathways, ones that can change into either color, and ones that disappear when a solid row is made allowing squares above it to fall below to make new rows.

After you solve one the first time, you have the option to try and match the official solution in terms of starting and ending points and maximum number of steps. If you do this for enough puzzles you can unlock new color schemes.

Also, there is an additional mode which gives you 10 easy or 5 hard randomly-generated puzzles and then records your best times solving all of them.

Pros:

* Puzzles are quite a challenge to figure out on harder levels.
* It lets you see your previous attempt at any point while playing, which becomes particularly helpful as the difficulty gradually increases.
* 383 total puzzles will last most players a really long time.
* You can play with one hand.
* Has a puzzle editor to make your own.
* Can play it on your DS lite/original DS.

Cons:

* The officially-intended solution is often not the most efficient solution.
* The only way to share your created puzzles with others is through entering a long code.

Comments: Even though the presentation and main concept of this game is simple, it really allows for some challenging solving as the levels get more complex. It is an outstanding puzzle game for those who like to figure out solutions.
