MasonicGamer.com - We’ve seen a great rise in “casual”, physics-based puzzle games over the last few years, thanks to the abundance of smartphones occupying people’s pockets, and the surprise success of titles such as Angry Birds and Cut the Rope. Following in the footsteps of those breakout hits is The Splatters, a new title on Xbox Live Arcade by an Israeli Studio known as SpikySnail Games.
To be honest, it’s a little strange playing a game such as this on the big screen. Everything about it screams “mobile”, from the single screen levels to the three star rating system, and having been spoiled by the cheap (or even free) titles available on iOS and Android, it’s little tough to shell out a full 800 MS points for something so similar. However, once you get over the initial sticker shock, you’ll discover a really fun and highly addictive puzzler underneath.
