Android Game - Clear Synthesis: Bumbaroo and the Yellow Ghost
I made a phone game for Android! It is a casual/puzzle type game where the objective is to match blocks and empty the board.

Try it out. You can play through the whole game for free, so you really don't have anything to lose.

It's fun! Though I am not very good at it. Nice work!

Thanks! I am working on putting together a more comprehensive tutorial because I think the learning curve is a bit steep.

I don't know if anyone will read here, but I added a training ground where you can practice on a smaller training field. :)

The training ground did improve my skills... slightly. It's good to get the speed practice with that, but I'm still awfully slow at figuring out what combinations I should use. Someday I'll get through the first stage!

Don't be coy, I saw your high score on the leaderboards. :)

Anyway, I will tell you how I play:

1) Match the highest numbers first (get rid of 9s then 8s and on down)
2)If there is only one high number and you can't easily combine two numbers to make a match (say there is one 9 and no 8-1 or 7-2 available) add the two highest numbers on the board together and go back to instruction 1.
3) Once there are 5-6 blocks left, stop for a second and make sure you won't end up trapped on the last two blocks.

Just by doing that I am pretty successful. I don't know if this is the best method, but I have been playing a ton while working on the development, and this is what works for me.

I'm, uh, pretty sure I racked that one up in the easiest school mode before I realized that it wasn't going to end and that there were other modes available. :)
