Are you a fan of marble shooting games and match 3 style puzzle games? If so, check out the latest from Eithythree Technology, Rolly Pop. Like most games of this type, the object is to shoot colorful “rolly” at a line of moving rollies in order to try and match up three or more of the same color. Doing so will eliminate that sequence of colors. Keep eliminating rollies until there are no more left in order to win the round.
Of course Rolly Pop is nothing new. It’s very similar to other games in the genre where you basically just shoot marbles to match colors and remove them. The only real difference is in presentation and art style. This game has a bet more of a cartoony feel to it and is a bit more colorful than most. This also goes for the music and sound effects as they are a bit more lively and colorful here.
Gameplay is precise and accurate since it is all touch based. Match marbles, gain combo multipliers, and use powerups to help you along the way. Again it does play like many other marble shooter type games except for a minor difference. While most allow you complete a round until you either beat the level or if you fail to remove all the marbles, Rolly Pop has another restriction in place, mainly the number of marbles you can have per round. You must at least reach a 1-star rating before yourrollies run out or the game will end and you’ll have to start over again.
Overall though, Rolly Pop is a very good game in the marble shooting genre. It has solid game mechanics and is quite entertaining thanks to the graphics and sound. There are in-app purchases in the game, but I never had to use them once to have fun with the game.
