Review SOMOS

Brandon Girod
Top-notch animations, unique gameplay mechanics
Difficulty spikes
Obviously, not every game is created equal. That typically rings especially true when you’re comparing paid games to unpaid games on mobile platforms. But every now and then you’ll find a truly free and unique game that will change your mind. SOMOS for Android is a great endless arcade game that is truly unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.
At first glance, SOMOS might look like a puzzle game, and I guess you could say there are a few puzzle mechanics involved with figuring out how some of the game’s mechanics work, but the game revolves around quick decision making. I’m going to do my best to describe how the game works, but it’s one of those things that’s easier to figure out in practice. Essentially, you are a colored ball that will swap between two sides of the screen. Doing any type of action will move the ball to the other side of the screen and change the color of the ball.
What you need to do is dispatch objects floating toward the ball before they reach it. Sometimes you’ll see large rings that spawn around your circle that slowly close in around it, you need to make sure your ball isn’t inside the circle when it closes around it. Other times you’ll need to swipe things away. The game gets more difficult as you need to dispatch more things at a faster pace.
Overall, SOMOS an incredibly unique arcade game that has probably the most unique art style I’ve seen in a game like this. Everything looks very fluid and the animations are top notch. Do yourself a favor and give this game a shot. You won’t regret it.
