Totemo is a very exciting and quite challenging arcade game with elements of a puzzle, in which you will remove glowing balls and other objects of various shapes and colors from the playing field. The difficulty lies in the fact that you can remove only those elements that are aligned horizontally or vertically. In addition, the number of eliminated items is strictly limited.
GameplayFor example, in the first location you will find blue balls that can be removed only in pairs. That is, it is simply impossible to destroy one ball and more than two balls more in a single move. The balls located diagonally or just not side-by-side, also cannot be eliminated. Yet there are no desperate situations in the game. You just need to think well over what balls you should start removing from in order not to bring yourself to a standstill.
With each new level, the tasks will grow more complicated, and the reason is not only more intricate arrangement of elements. Over time, the rules of the game will change and instead of two balls you will have to remove three pieces in one move. Moreover, they again must be located on the same vertical or horizontal line with respect to each other.
In some cases, there are elements of a different color on the playing field, and the first of them will be purple stars. The distinctive feature of these stars is that they can allow you to remove one ball from the puzzle. To perform this, you first need to tap on the star and then on the nearest ball. At that, it should be considered that both the star and the single ball must be located on the same line.
Gameplay featuresDespite the presence of such bonuses in the game, do not use them right away. Thus you may destroy the right combination of balls and won't be able under any circumstances to remove them all. Before every action, it is necessary to think several moves ahead. The game will grow particularly complicated when on the playing field there will appear be a lot of balls of different colors.
