NONO GO! is a very nice arcade game for Windows Phone which is sure to please children and to help adults spend time in a queue or transport insensibly. The game has nice cartoon graphics, bright rich colors, and beautiful animation. The essence of the game is that you have to gather colorful feathered creatures of an unusual shape next to each other in the amount of three or more individuals.
Naturally, a single cluster must consist of birds of an identical color and only after that they can disappear or merge into one fiery bird, depending on the situation which we are going to discuss below. Tellingly, the birds disappear not immediately after they become three, and this gives you an opportunity to add to them a few more relatives.
GameplayIn the first level, as you will be dealing with the task, the general flock of birds will rise from the bottom. Starting from the second level, in addition to the major birds cluster's rising, some additional rows of birds of different colors will begin to fall from above. Over time, the rate of appearance of the birds will start to increase and you will have to act more quickly.
ControllingYou can drag birds from one place to another by using one finger. Simply choose a bird that is not fenced by others, and carry it wherever you want. For this purpose, there are suitable not only those birds located in the top row, but also those that are in the center of the playing field, provided that there is an empty space to the right or left of them. When you remove birds from the sides while above them there are others, the latter will fall down by gravity and in some cases even create fine combinations.
Gameplay featuresAnd now let us return to what actions lead to removal of birds, what actions provoke their unification, and what this gives us. So, birds collected in groups of three individuals, disappear after a few seconds if you do not add to them a few more birds. Once you combine four or more feathered creatures, they turn into one bird in flames. At that, the greater number of birds will be in a particular cluster, the stronger the flames around the created bird and consequences will be.
It won't change the color and you will be able to combine new matching birdies with it, and when their number reaches three or more, a powerful explosion will thunder which carry away not only those who were a part of the second cluster, but also those who were near. It all occurs pretty funny. At first, the neighboring feathered creatures get charred and blink, and then disappear.
ResumeThe game lasts as long as new birds have enough place on the playing field. Once the conveyor stops, you will find yourself in the menu with the results of your efforts. As it has been already mentioned, the graphics in the game are of excellent quality. The soundtrack is also quite nice and fit wonderfully into the gameplay. The game is absolutely free but there is a small advertising banner located at the bottom of the screen.
