Rotate Mania Deluxe - Puzzle Kaleidoscope
"Is there anything more about those puzzles than just match-3? I am sick and tired of it. I have tried everything - Big Kahuna Reef, Bubble Shooter and all of them are about matching 3 objects. I badly need a change now." - Mary, 32 years
Yes, Mary, there are. One of those puzzles is under review today. That's Rotate Mania Deluxe developed by Absolutist.
The main principle of this game well reminds of a kaleidoscope that you are to rotate in order to see multicolored glass patterns.
Rotate Mania is a computer version of this toy, yet the difference is you've got to create the patterns yourself, which is a tougher task, since you'll have to rotate the same triangle for several times before you reach the expected color combination. But in contrast to kaleidoscope, in Rotate Mania Deluxe, there are only two colors. And this makes color matching easier.
How to Play. This game can be controlled with help of mouse.
The playing field consists of yellow and blue triangles forming boxes. Some of the boxes are locked.
To unlock the boxes and thus, complete a level, you need to match the sides of four adjacent boxes. This can be done as you rotate the boxes with help of your mouse - that's it!
But mind your time. In case you are not in time, you'll have to go through the same level once again, and lose the score you earned.
The game contains hints, that sometimes are of a great need. It can be found on the left part of the playing field. As you press it, you'll be prompted to the correct move.
Pros. Wonderful graphics and color combination that surely please your eyes. The game is not boring at all. The graphics of Rotate Mania Deluxe gets a player a feeling of eternal rotation that is always associated with a clock.
