Attention span: 6/10 To many balls to look at.
Controls: 8/10 2nd should be used instead of F1.
Implementation: 5/10 Bad remake of a classic game.
Overall: 6/10 Has lots of room to improve.

Call it what you want but the concept is still the same. SomeGame is a clone of a game which can be called SameGame or Insane Game. The object of SomeGame is to clear balls from a playing field. To clear a group of balls from the playing field they must be touching.

I am a fan of puzzle games and I was actually excited when I saw that a new puzzle game was out. I rushed to download and load SomeGame to my calculator and when I started playing it I was very disappointed. The game itself is very professional and has a lot of good features. The good features of the game are the variable sizes that you can make the balls so that you have a lot of balls to clear or a few balls to clear. Within the different sizes you can also store 5 high scores which is a nice feature to track your performance.

Now that I have listed some good points of the game I will cover what I think is a major downfall to SomeGame and should be changed as soon as possible. The balls are just that all balls. The only way to tell the difference is by which shade the ball is. When you are using a small size it is rather hard to look at the screen and tell the balls apart. I think the author of this game should change the balls and make different shapes should you could more easily tell them apart. At first the balls are very hard to tell apart. But I do admit that after awhile they can be distinguished a little easier. Overall I would still say this game still merits an average rating. If the balls were changed so they could be more easily looked at I feel that this would be a grade A+ game.
