Top Android Game: Trap!
Trap! is a very simplistic (yet addicting) Android game. The goal of this game is to capture screen area by trapping the bouncing balls inside walls.
Overall Score: 4.5/5
Again this game’s basic premise is to secure and enclose area without a ball inside. To draw a line, swipe your finger in the direction you’d like the line to be. When you capture >75% of the area, you beat the level. If a ball hits your line before it’s completely drawn, you will lose a life. Progressive levels are harder as more balls are added. Power-ups and a bonus system are also implemented in this game for greater playability. For example, if you tap the blue “SPEED” button, your next line will be drawn faster. These bonuses are limited, although you can capture more of them by entrapping them in the play screen. The full list of bonuses and icons for each can be found below. Also, in order to increase your score, try: completing the level faster, collecting items, isolating each ball in its own box, capturing a large area in one swipe, or capturing other bonuses. Each of these is a multiplier used to calculate your final score.
There is a high score entry for the game which is nice to track your progression. However, there isn’t an online scoreboard which would greatly add to the indispensability of this app as you’d be more likely to play if you’re trying to beat someone else’s score.
The graphics aren’t the greatest but the game does bring a simple, yet challenging game to Android. Try it out and see what you think.
