Colour-matching fun in 3D
Mix a standard colour-matching block game with a Rubik’s cube and you get Polyform. There’s a 3D shape made up of cubes of different colours, which you can view from all angles. You drop more cubes on the shape, and if you connect four or more cubes of the same colour, they vanish. Clear the whole thing as quick as you can! Simple. You can play just by spamming cubes of the same colour, but the game rewards you for building up to eliminate, say, seven or eight in one go instead of just four. Neither approach is explicitly correct, so it means the game can be as complex as you make it. Special cube types (such as protected armour cubes) add more strategy later.
We really like Polyform, but it could be even better. Correctly placing a block can be fiddly, and time limits irked us – it’s more fun to play in a zen-like way, aiming for the biggest combos. Matt Bolton
A simple and fun puzzle game, with some frustrating elements that could be improved upon.
