7 Planets for iPhone is a Classic Remake of a 1985 Board Game
7 Planets is a logical board game based on the traditional board game of 1985 named Ziv Zav. It is not as simple it looks, 28 balls of seven different colors are moved around until a row of 4 ball is achieved for every color.
The gameplay is fairly challenging. Swipe the ball to move it up, down, left or right. But that swipe will not only start moving the ball but all the balls in that row or column will move together depending on the direction. Each row or column will continue to move until they hit a wall. Lining up the colors in a row of four is not as easy as one might think. One could just not line the rows up as the wish, then it wouldn’t be a game. The walls have colors indicated on them to which the ball is need to be aligned. As progress is made the levels get a bit trickier. Blocks appear in the field which increases the difficulty of the level.
The appearance and design of the app is decent. Colors are nicely picked and the sound of the balls is great. There aren’t other modes in the game except of the main board game named after Ziv Zav. For a 1985 board game, it’s an excellent digital remake.
Overall, the game has great mechanics; looks simple but challenging and the lack of modes won’t let you down. Even with these small features, you’ll find yourself playing for hours. There are no cons to it and 7 Planets is worth the dollar. 7 Planets is available on the App Store for $0.99 for iPhone.
