Mobile game of the week: Happy Glass
Happy Glass is one of the top rated games on Play Store, this week. Developed by Lion Studios, it has amassed over 10 million downloads in a short span of time. It is a minimalist puzzle-solving challenge, which is guided by the laws of Physics. With numerous levels and interesting challenges, it is sure to keep you occupied. Here's our review of the game.
What is Happy Glass all about?
Happy Glass is a Physics-based puzzle solver. The motive is simple: there is a sad glass and players have to fill it with water to make it happy. However, the challenge comes from the obstacles. Players have to draw lines to ensure the water flows smoothly without tipping over the glass. The puzzles are creatively different across all 300 levels of the game.
A little about Lion Studios
The media division of AppLovin is Lion Studios. It coordinates with mobile game developers for publishing and promoting their applications. It started in March 2018 and has already helped multiple games hit the top 10 on both Play Store and App Store. Some of its success stories include Smash Balls, Weave the Line, Cash, Inc.
Build simple and smart structures to reach your objective
Although the challenges in-game appear simple, they need out of the box thinking. Players must be mindful of the amount of ink they use to build the structures. It shows up in a bar at the top of the screen; lesser ink means more stars. It is better if players build balanced structures so that they can support the glass from falling.
Minimalist games are easy on the eyes
As mentioned earlier, Happy Glass takes a minimalist approach. Accordingly, the game has few features. There are coins which players make as they cross levels. They can use these to buy different pencils, and liquid colors. Certain in-app purchases are available, which players can buy in-game coins with real currency. The simple layout makes it attractive and easy on the eyes.
Will Happy Glass make you happy?
If you like puzzle-solving, this game offers many unique levels to test yourself. However, there are ads popping up in between levels, which disrupt the flow. The simple layout and low graphics mean that the game is light on the phone's software. Though Happy Glass begins with a challenging tone, players might eventually find it repetitive. Nonetheless, the game is worth checking out.
