"Pops domination"

Reviewed by / Sep 06, 2012

Pobs is a challenging puzzle game

NOTE: This version is ad-free

I hope you like racking your brains since in Pobs you'll have to. Pobs looks like Checkers or Reversi, however, gameplay is quite different. Board game is an hexagonal grid. Each player owns some pobs (balls of a give color). Each ball can move to some free cells around. Choose one and tap to make it jump to there. If the ball jumps to a opponets's neighboring cell, their adjoining balls will turn to your color (you'll dominate them). The goal is to catch as many pobs as possible before no more cells are available.

There are five different game modes: quick game, classic, time attack, score and 2 players hot-seat classic mode. Likewise, there are lots achievements to unlock and players will be able to post their score records on online leadeboards provided by OpenFeint. HeyZap check-in service is also integrated.

Graphics are simple and should be certainly enhanced (there's a sort of ball superposition). Controls are intuitive: tap a ball to see cells you can move to, and tap the cell to move it.

Challenging and addictive. Good one.

Developer's original description available here
"One of the Top-20 Casual/Puzzle games at Android Developer Challenge 2!"

Pobs Premium is an amazing logic game similar to Checkers or Reversi, but with unique game mechanics – the game takes place on a level made of hexagonal cells.

Each player owns pobs of a distinct color. With each move you can choose either to jump with a pob or to copy it to a free neighbour cell. Consequently, all the opponent's pobs near your newly placed pob will become yours!

The goal of the game is to capture as many pobs as possible. The game ends when no more cells are available.
