Pebbles is ideal for a quick game!
The game is easy to get into as well as get out of again. There is no troublesome saving or loading – just end the game (by pressing the home button on the iPhone) and start exactly where you left off next time you turn it on.
Pebbles is flexible!
Pebbles has got everything: from a quick game here and there to tricky challenges.
The easier levels don’t require too much sweat; however, they are not trivial and still a lot of fun. The higher levels of difficulty get pretty tricky, though. Just the right thing when you’re in the mood to get that gray matter working.
Pebbles is pretty and sounds cute!
What’s more, Pebbles is supported by adorable visual effects (three pebble designs to choose from) and the cutest sounds.
How does Pebbles work?
The basic principle of the game is irresistibly easy: from the edge, you throw a pebble into a square playing field. When one stone lands on another of the same color, this stone as well as all bordering stones of the same color disappear. The goal is, of course, to empty the field – so far, so good.
Yet, this simple concept leads to surprisingly challenging functions, and the variety of strategic possibilities make Pebbles an absorbing game.
A shelf above the playing field shows which stone is going to come next. Knowing which stone is going to follow is a deciding factor in the game’s strategy.
Choosing the sequence of the moves with care is also very important: a well positioned pebble can do more than just eliminate others; it can also be the basis for up coming moves, just as a badly positioned pebble can prove to be terribly obstructive.
The level of difficulty increases with the number of pebbles that are in the playing field at the start of a game as well as the number of different colors.
