Interesting levels, exciting game play, one-finger controls
Needs To Be Expanded, a bit static
LineUp! for Android is an addictive brain teaser. You have a grid of colored squares 3x3, 4x4 or 5x5 depending on the level of difficulty. Above the colored grid there's a color sequence; find the corresponding pattern within the grid and slide your finger across them to make them disappear. Each level has a set number of sequences you need to find within a time limit. Sounds easy? Not. The sequences you're searching for aren't always linear. Sometimes they can twist and bend, so you really have to look sharp, and fast.
LineUp! is one of those games that gets more and more frantic as you go on. It's easy to get flustered searching for color sequences and knowing there's a ticking clock adds to the pressure and anxiety. I had trouble keeping up just playing the 3x3 grid. The 4x4 and 5x5 are off the hook. I think you need to be on something or borderline schizo to play this game on that level, but more power to ya if you can do it.
Controls are simple. Graphics are appropriate and the sounds enhance the fun.
ResumeLineUp! is a great brain teaser that you can come back to again and again. It plays well and is challenging without feeling impossible. It has the look and feel of a familiar classic and can be enjoyed by all ages.
