What a cool game. Starting scores for main game and the bonus. The bonus seems almost impossible, and it's only dumb luck that I scored as high as I did.

Although I'm not very good at twitch games, I do appreciate that it doesn't take a big time commitment.  This game also has that "just one more time" fun factor.

 

x 4 = 2,820

 

x 8 = 920

Cool pick McCallister! I had never played Assembloids before tonight but it seems like one of those games that feels impossibly fast at first but you end up quickly improving with practice. It's a lotta fun, if not a bit headache inducing :lol:

 

 

Assembloids (4X): 6,400

Bonus

Assembloids (8X): 1,080

Bit of an improvement on the main game (score 7,860, although the image isn't the best)

And as an aside, I kept accidentally making shapes with a red and blue "stripe", like the top guy in the image below

My five year old daughter therefore asked why I was "making Crystal Palace players". For those who don't know (which will probably be most people on here given the largely U.S based make up), Crystal Palace are an unsung football (the proper version, played with a round ball 😁 🤣) team In London, who play in red and blue, and who I have had the misfortune to support for over 40 years. To illustrate the point, here is an image of the wonderful Wilfried Zaha in said Palace kit

Assembloids (x4): 10450

 

Assembloids (x8): 1000

 

Fun game.  For those looking for scoring rules, see https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1094.

 

For strategy, I'm wondering if it's better to try to clear the entire board for the 500 points + bonus life or if it's better to try to get the colors to match.  For many games, sacrificing points to get a bonus life is best since you'll usually recover the points you sacrifice and then some with the extra life.  With this game, I've found that after getting the extra life, the game speeds up significantly.  This shortens my current life which reduces the value of earning a bonus life.

PAL users might want to download the PAL bin as the NTSC colors on a PAL system are not very distinguishable from each other.
