Frozen Free Fall is a very bright and colorful arcade game related to the genre of "three in a row" which will take you into the kingdom Arendelle from the recent theatrical release of the cartoon "Frozen". In this game, you have to manipulate colored crystals while assembling from them chains of three or more pieces, after which they will disappear.
The game will delight you with colorful design, amazingly high-quality graphics, and eye-pleasing effects, and it will be accompanied by relaxing music and other sounds corresponding to what is happening on the playing field. The size and form of the latter are constantly changing and you cannot even imagine what it will be in the next level.
GameplayAs is customary in this genre, you will first be allowed to get used to the game while from time to time given hint of right moves how to use these or other bonuses. In a short time, the number of the latter will be so big that you will start being confused amongst them. This is about not only those bonuses that are above the playing field and allow to use themselves at any time, but also about those that a player comes across on the crystals themselves, or depend on their location.
Game featuresIn addition to straight chains of three gems, subject to destruction are also those chains that cross each other. The main thing is that each of them should consist of three stones and then they will disappear completely. Tellingly, this is not about chains of a larger number of crystals. Strange as it may sound, but to assemble chains of four and five crystals is very disadvantageous. The reason is because not all the jewels disappear in them but only those that are to the right or left (top or bottom) of the crystal that you have added, and the latter will remain in loneliness among stones of unsuitable colors and shapes.
Goals and objectivesWhile destroying the crystals, you will see how a small scale located above the playing field, gets filled. You must make sure that it is completely filled, or at least 90%, but there is a nuance which is that you are limited in the number of moves. If you fail to cope with the task, you will be forced to either sacrifice some achievement in exchange for five extra turns, or start the level from the beginning.
ResumeBy the way, another interesting feature of the game in terms of design is that it works in both portrait and landscape mode by rearranging the location of the playing field and the main character depending on the chosen orientation. Here is, basically, all that could be told about the gameplay which, of course, will grow more complicated with each new level. The good news is the fact that you can download the game Frozen Free Fall absolutely for free.
