Next Puzzle Game

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!

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.

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.

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!

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

I loved the game at first and went through several levels. I didn't like this game after getting really stuck on level 16. Things changed ! I figured out that the 3-matching blocks need to be done before the 2 way matches. The matching pieces cannot be slid across the matching ones, either. Be thoughtful of dropping, since you can go down, but not up. The 3's need a drop in or an L shape, since they can't touch sides until all 3 do it at once. Use non-matching squares to slide on. Move pieces several times.This got me through 12 more levels, quickly. I had to figure out the logic and the order of plays myself.The graphics are fine. The 5 way control button, yes, will be improved someday. They also need to add in a few clues, hints or someway to know you've just totally done it wrong before you move 15 blocks and have to RESTART which is a nice feature).
BUT ! The beauty of the game is that if you do get stuck,keep working on it and look for principles "like do the 3's before the 2's " works.
You'll see the answer and fly through the next 5 or 10 levels... It's a "learn as you go game" but I was happy when I got past a rough level. Still, not for children that have to be told what to do.
