4 Elements - top game!
on 8 March 2011
4 Elements is a totally addictive game which is the next level for those who enjoy 3 in a row matching games such as Jewel Quest, Ancient Rome etc. The graphics are superior and the game expands onto different screens, following the flow of energy released as you match 3 or more in a row. By pressing the B button, an overview of the whole game can be seen, showing you which direction to head in order to achieve success.
There are 4 sections (elements) of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. Within these sections are four other categories, some of which, themselves have four further categories. My partner, who is particularly good at these games managed it with many hours over 2 weeks. I play for around half an hour a day and am on the third level after about a month.
Interspersed between the 'matching' games are 'spot the difference' games, which although good in graphics, are not challenging for those who are seeking that kind of game. Personally, they are a very small portion of the game, so I still rate this whole game 5*.
My 7 year old grandson is also hooked and doing surprisingly well with tuition, so suitable for all age groups.
