A casual game that's all about timing.
Acclaimed in the iOSphere, comes to the Androidverse Pebble Universe. When you first have a look at it, at the overall look, screenshots and video, it may seem a little bit too rovioish, but fortunately it has its own character.
Gameplay consists on tapping on every pebble to let him roll slope downward. If it meets another pebble, they both explode, able to destroy any evil black shadow monster whatsoever the resulting pellets hit. When you get used to it, new elements will be introduced into the playground to either hasten or slow down pebbles, and monsters won't be still anymore and start to hover around. Likewise, you will eventually get access to new pebbles with new abilities.
A nice design and sound work has been done to give this game a unique childish-yet-cool look. Although it isn't the height of innovation, it should be highlighted as a virtue, because it's actually very well done.
Game's free to play, though you can unlock all worlds at once for 1$ and help Itatake by the way. In short, it's a great game, perhaps too technical for the more casual games and maybe not strategic enough for the hardcore ones. Either way, recommended.
For centuries the Pebbles lived in peace. They farmed their loved flowers, which they ate with great appetite.
But that was then, before the monsters came. Now they are neurotic and constantly chased by the soot-lump creatures who love Pebble-meat more than anything else. And the monsters have a great advantage. With their great horror instil xray-eye, they see through the Pebbles stone camouflage, and they can't protect themselves against attacks. Until now!
The Pebbles discovered that their hats explode when they smash into each other at high speed. Suddenly they had a weapon to defend themselves. Now they can finally fight back. And they need your help.
