Sparkle - add a little light to your life!
All fans of Zuma! Those who are addicted to throwing colorful balls! Lovers of Luxor
series! Rejoice! Here comes a new title of your favourite genre -
Sparkle! This game will provide you all the fun you would expect from a
good Marble Popper, and a lot more! Sparkle offers all the features
inherent to the genre and some novelties for you to enjoy.
The story line of the game is rather sad, I would
even say tragic. Darkness has fallen over Crowberry Woods, and not a
ray of light can be seen here. But there is a way to bring light back
to the country, starting with a single sparkle.
You will make your path through the whole region, claiming land after
land, and return light to its inhabitants, casting the darkness away.
For this you will have an orb slinger and a snake of orbs to destroy. The gameplay is
nothing special - shoot orbs, creating
groups of three or more like-colored ones, which will be destroyed. As
soon as you destroy all the orbs in the line the level is passed. As
usual, you can swap the orbs in the slinger with a right mouse click.
What distinguishes the game from others of this type is the number
of its powerups - there are 13 of them, each one really helpful if you
learn how to use it. At the first levels it is rather confusing, but
later in the game you come to get used to them rather soon. It's
interesting that the powerups appear not in the line of orbs, but next
to it, and you have to shoot them separately. Sometimes it can be
rather disappointing, because it's not that easy to aim correctly, but
you will quickly get accustomed.
each several levels you will earn an extra life and an amulet giving
you some benefits further in the game, for example, making your orbs
move two times faster. When you earn several amulets you can choose
which one to wear.
There are also another choices you make in the
game. For example, the map is not linear, and now and then you reach a
certain point you are offered to choose your next step.
Your progress and skill will be reflected at the Achievements page
and Trophey Room, where you can track how successful you are in the
The game also features three modes, two of which are unlockable and
can be played only after you have earned some of the amulets in the
first Quest Mode.
Sparkle is the game that is worth your time to look at - check yourself!
