Not everyone can be so preoccupied with Angry Birds that they haven’t time for other Android games, right? It sure seems that way. Every time I try to suggest an Android game to friends, they say that they’ll download it right after they get three stars on a few Angry Birds levels. This is why I have yet to play Angry Birds. It leaves time for other Android games. As I’ve found in the past month or so, as my gaming has increased, puzzle games seem to fit naturally on a touchscreen Android. Today I’m looking at RuniK, the debut effort by developer SoFresh. You’re certainly familiar with the premise of the game, as countless other games have used a similar scheme. When you load up the app and click on New Game, you’ll see a grid with different colored tiles. The idea is to find big chunks of them and knock them out. The more in a row you get, the more points you accumulate. You start with Orange, blue, green, and red, plus the white wild card squares. Touch one square to light up all adjacent squares, including the white wild card. Touch it again to knock them out and drop down everything above it. Therein lies the strategy. You have to figure out how these blocks are going to drop so that you can make the biggest chunks. You also have to figure out how to optimally use the white squares. Once I got the feel for the game I started to get legitimately annoyed when I left a white square on the board and had to pair it with another single tile. The best strategy is to figure out how to use it in connecting two sets of blocks into one big block. Once you’ve hit every combination on the board, you move onto the next level. All of the blocks you didn’t eliminate stay. They turn gray, too, and the only way to give them color is to eliminate an adjacent box. This further complicates your strategy. Now you’re trying to free up the gray blocks while still trying to create large sets of blocks to get more points. The game ends when a level starts and you don’t have any adjacent blocks of the same color. I found myself really into this game. I love that it’s not timed. I have other games that work on time and I love them, but this is a nice break. I can play a level, do some work, and then come back and play the next level. It might not be as addictive as Angry Birds, but it’s definitely a fun puzzle game for Android. You can get RuniK for free in the market.
