Is It Any Good?
If you enjoy games like Zuma, SPARKLE HD for the iPad is all but guaranteed to please. A high quality marble blaster with beautiful, crisp graphics and a pleasant, vaguely mischievous score, this puzzler has players shooting colorful balls from a central hub with an aim to match them with like-colored spheres in a line that slowly snakes its way around the screen to a terminus. Match three or more and they’ll disappear, making the line shorter. Fail to make a match and the snaking line will grow longer, edging closer to the game-ending finishing point. The controls are perfectly intuitive—just tap where you want to shoot the ball—and objectives are clear within seconds, even for beginners. Avid marble poppers can count on countless hours of entertainment.
