[prMac.com] Chico, California – FireFlux’s new iPhone game GemPulse has been released on Google Play! The hit puzzle game from FireFlux downloaded over 20,000 times on the App Store comes to Android devices.
GemPulse is an easy to learn, challenging to master puzzle game with dozens of compelling levels and thought provoking strategy. With this exciting new twist on classic puzzle gameplay, you have 2 minutes to strategize, replace gems to form massive chains, and trigger detonations along the way to earn as many points as you can.
The goal of GemPulse is to reach a target score before the timer elapses. Each level consists of one white gem and an array of other colored gems. A pulse begins at the white gem and travels outward, creating a chain to like-colored gems. Every third gem in the chain will continue to chain to all adjacent gems, regardless of color. The player replaces gems one at a time to grow the length of the chain, and finally detonates it for points.
Each level in GemPulse represents an 8×8, two-bit picture. A crossbow, a reference to Scorched Earth, and a broken heart are among the many levels to play. Players can earn bronze, silver, or gold medals for completing levels quickly by reaching the target score.
Players must vary their strategy while playing GemPulse. A player can detonate their chain at any time, collecting points for the length of the chain. The longer the chain, the higher the score multiplier will be. Players must balance the detonation of chains against the complexity of the current puzzle in order to best determine when to detonate. Multiple detonations can be performed per level.
