Catch is a very exciting puzzle game for Windows Phone in which you will have to connect stars of one color with each other. The game reminds Flow Free but here are a few interesting features that you will surely enjoy. The game nicely stretches brain and simultaneously allows you to relax, as it does not require instant decisions from you.
GameplaySo, the game consists of 160 unique levels, in each of them you will see several colorful stars. Your task is to connect the color-matching stars with a single line. Simply touch the outermost star and swipe through the cells of the playing field to bring the line to the second star (and others, if there are many). The path for the line should be selected so that it doesn't hinder lines of another color that you want to draw to connect stars of other shades.
Initially, the game will seem quite simple to you because there will be not much stars and their colors, and their location will be quite convenient. However, with time on the playing field more different elements will appear. Those are elements and not just stars, because among them there will be some kind of bridges and tunnels which will be used to achieve that very goal. You understand what is our point? The fact is that the playing field will be very densely sown with colored stars, and without the peculiar flyovers you will simply fail to draw the required number of lines. Otherwise, they will intersect with each other which is forbidden by the rules of the game.
Using auxiliary elementsIt's pretty easy to use bridges and tunnels. Imagine that this is a road on which transport is moving in a dense flow in a certain direction. So, at first you can draw some shortest paths between the stars of a certain color and then get to long ones and those that are on the bridges and tunnels. Most importantly, do not remove your finger from the screen until you have connected all the stars of an identical color. Once you miss at least one star, the line will disappear while an attempt will be counted which affects not very well the overall score.
Soon, in addition to bridges and overpasses there will emerge some plates on the playing field with which you can change the direction of lines by 90°, as a mirror changes the angle of reflection in games with laser beams. A cell with such plates can be used twice (from different sides, of course), no matter what line you want to carry through it.
ResumeThe game provides a total of six colors, and in a single level there may be up to twenty stars waiting for you to connect them observing the color gamut. In general, the game is very, very exciting that fans of such puzzles will appreciate. You can download the game Catch for free but will only be able to play the first 40 levels. For the remaining 120 challenges, you will have to pay.
