If you ever were a fan of Go Fish but wished it was paced a bit faster, you are in for a treat with Time Geeks: Cloneggs. In the last version of the Time Geeks series, players had to quickly search out busy scenes to find specified objects. If you found the object before time ran out, you could progress. This time gameplay still utilizes a time limit and quick recognition of objects, but that’s where the similarity ends. a
Time Geeks: Cloneggs by Cory Games (.99) is mostly a test of your speed and the sharpness of your eyes. As with most games, it starts out simple to allow you time to get used to the gameplay and controls. You are presented with a few eggs. Touch each egg to crack it open to reveal a quirky character. As you crack open the eggs you will notice that nearly every character has a clone match. Draw a line from each character to his clone and they will disappear. Match everyone up before time runs out or you lose!
At the end of each round there will be just one unique character left without a match. This is the character you have unlocked for the round. For the next round, the character will have his or her own clone to be matched up with. The additions of eggs for each round adds to the difficulty and craziness. I found my eyes getting a bit spazzed out as I unlocked more and more characters and had to race against the clock to pair them all up.
Some people don’t like pixilated images reminiscent of yesteryear. If you like retro graphics, you’ll enjoy the character stylings in the game. Even if you’re not a fan of the old school pixilations, they will grow on you after a while. I know I prefer sleek, futuristic graphics to the bulky old fashioned ones but even I found these squarish characters fun.
There is plenty here to keep you busy for quite a while. I usually don’t play games to pass the time, but found myself going back to this one tonight as I waited in the car to pick my husband up from work. It’s a great way to pass the time. Unlock level after level and challenge your friends scores in GameCenter.
If you have a sharp eye and quick fingers, you will find the challenge that Time Geeks: Cloneggs presents. It’s a match game with a twist and adults and kids alike will find it entertaining and fun.
