One of the coolest things about being the
editor in chief at Family Friendly Gaming is getting to see so many
games before they are released to the public. Kroco Gems is one of those
games. A few months back I got a great sneak peak at a Beta version of
Kroco Gems. It impressed me, and I could not wait for the final product
to be released. Well that day has come.
The dragons in Kroco Gems look good, as do the various blocks. This is a good time to explain how to play Kroco Gems. Players move blocks around to form horizontal lines. The blocks resemble what you would find in Tetris. The blocks can also be rotated in most situations. At times they bump into other blocks and can not rotate. There is a time limit in Kroco Gems. The player must get the gem down to the bottom before time expires.
The music in Kroco Gems is exceptional. I love the happy sounds in this iPad app. It brings a real smile to my face. The special effect sounds are good as well. I love getting lines and selecting levels. All of these enhance Kroco Gems in ways that are barely describable. The audio department is the best part of Kroco Gems in my opinion. It is part of the game that stands out drastically.
There are forty levels in the story mode of Kroco Gems. Once a player gets past level five they can play in Classic mode. There are five difficulty settings in Kroco Gems. The price of this app is currently $2.99. This is okay for the level of content. It does have to compete with apps that are a dollar or two less.
The game play is really strange in Kroco Gems at first. It took me some time to adapt to the concept of the blocks already being there and moving them around. I also found myself frustrated with only being able to move them horizontally. At times one would drop if there was a hole where it was being moved. Not being able to move them up and over led to getting stuck in some levels. Restarting is pretty simple.
Kroco Gems taught me to think about my moves before doing them. I would try and figure out the impact of my move. At times this was trial and error. The storyline is different. These sugar fairies protect the gems because their essences are in them. They accidentally create the Krocos with magic. Krocos love to eat the gems. This leads to a conflict between the two. We get to play the Krocos as they eat gems.
