Physi Nibbler is a very fascinating arcade game for precision and accuracy, in which you will use colored balls to destroy blocks of the corresponding color. The game is based on physics, thanks to which there are almost no surprises in it, and if there are errors, you will understand what they involve, and draw appropriate conclusions.
GameplaySo, each playing field will represent a certain structure of white blocks among which there will be located blocks of green, blue, yellow and red colors. At your disposal there will be colored balls with certain physical (or mechanical) properties. In the first levels, you will use green shells alone similar in their properties to ordinary stones. At a collision of a green ball with identical blocks, the latter will be destroyed bringing you 4 game points per block.
You have an unlimited amount of shells but each of them will cost you the same four points from the total game score. The transition to the next level is possible only when you score the required number of points (indicated by a slash with the number of game points scored in the upper right corner of the screen). That is, having spent too many balls, you will not be able to score the necessary number of points and will have to pass the level out of the chute. Actually, you can click on "Help" button located in the upper right corner of the screen, and choose in the window that opens the transition to the next level, but thus the game is not funny at all.
Gameplay featuresAfter some time, there will appear blocks of different colors, but the distinctive feature of the gameplay is that you cannot go to their destruction until you finish your business with the green ones. The thing is that when the ball of one color hits blocks of a different color, both the ball and block that it managed to tough, get destroyed. At that, for each block of an improper color you will be fined by 4 game points. Once there are no green blocks left on the playing field, the next ball will turn blue and, accordingly, you will have to destroy blue blocks trying to avoid hitting the remaining yellow blocks.
Eventually, the shells will acquire different properties. For example, instead of rebounding from various surfaces, they will stick to them. After a few more levels, you will get an opportunity to choose balls spinning clockwise or counterclockwise and thus rolling across locations in certain directions. In order to select the type of a ball, you need to tap the bottom right corner of the screen, and in the window that appears you will see the range of all the available shells along with their price which will be deducted from your score.
ResumeThere are 120 levels in the game, and believe us, if you do not cheat, they will last for a long time. The graphics and sound in the game are modest, but for this genre it cannot be called a big disadvantage. Especially, given the fact that you can download the game Physi Nibbler for free and find no advertising there.
