Review: GEOM (Wii U eshop)

Message reputation : 100% (7 votes)
Getting Geometric!



Intro And Gameplay:

Geom is a Puzzle title developed by Pablo Millan a one-man indie developer who just recently became an official Wii U developer! His first game Geom is a puzzler title that focuses on scoring big in each of the three modes of play which all have different rules and ways to score! The gameplay itself is easy to learn, but difficult to master as scoring big will test your brain in a big way. Of the three modes the first is by far the easiest because you can move tiles anywhere you want before matching them, while mode two requires you to clear specific shapes that are shown in the top-left corner of the screen, and mode three has a similar concept as two, but the blocks scroll vertically making it difficult to match the shapes.



Controls, Graphics, And Sound:

The touch screen controls are a perfect fit for a game such as this one and they're quite smooth and easy to learn, while the Off-TV Play is a nice touch! The graphics are simplistic as they should be in a title like this, but the blocks and background also have so much depth that it almost feels like a 3DS game with the stereoscopic 3D turned on! The music and sound effects are also fairly simplistic, which is good for titles that force you to use your concentration to score big!



Bottom-Line:

If you're a fan of the puzzle genre the superb gameplay and several challenging game modes you will likely enjoy this title, while the solid touch screen controls and simplistic graphics and music will allow you to concentrate on the game without being distracted, all in all Geom is a great game that is well worth its almost non-existent price!

Score: 8/10

"well worth its almost non-existent price!"

What's the price of the game then?
And when will it be released?

Who decided to drop the info boxes in reviews?

@SKTTR it's just 0.99ยข and releases in North America on June 19th. Secondly I was the one doing the info boxes in the reviews, however I no longer have a working PC so I can't use the graphical software required to create them...Neutral

If I can find a new graphics designer we'll be able to use the new reviews style again, but right now it's impossible for me to do so with just the Wii U browser. Neutral

$0.99 is cheap for a game that has been given a score of 8/10 lol. Surprised

The score is way too high in my opinion. I would give this a 6/10.
