Review Size DOES Matter
Music IS the game

Perfect soundtrack, unusual game play, two-finger controls, no ads
Too few levels
Size DOES Matter for Android is a fluorescent scrolling game with a dubby 8Bit soundtrack you can nod your head to. Playing the game feels a bit like playing a musical instrument; you'll do better if you 'feel' it, rather than carefully planning each move.
Each level scrolls along a kind of fretboard or music sheet. The challenge is to get a row of blocks exactly the right size and position to exactly fit through a series of gaps (color coded by size to help you). You use your right thumb to change length, and your left thumb to change position. Because you use both hands in a coordinated way, and the blocks play notes as they gracefully slide past each other, it feels as though you're playing your gizmo as a musical instrument.
My only critiscism would be that there are only 15 levels at the moment, which might not keep you going for a very long time. Hopefully the developers will continue adding levels to keep you interested.
Size DOES Matter is an immensely satisfying and addictive game. It's actually quite relaxing. What's more, it's completely original. At least haven't played anything quite like it before. The 8Bit music is beautiful. Unlocking new levels by doing well gives you the motivation to keep playing. The graphics are minimalist, but they fit the game design and concept perfectly. It's not expensive and it's ad-free. 10/10. I'm in love with Size DOES Matter, you simply have to try it out for yourself; you won't regret it.
