Viola's Quest is an arcade marble shooter game where the marbles are moving every second and it needs to be popped before the cat eats one of the marbles. The goal of the game is to clear all marbles and achieve the goal for each level.
The story is simple. Meet Viola. Viola has a quest and it involves defeating Desmond.
The game starts off with tutorials for those who are not familiar with marble shooters. It also gives hints on how to use the power ups just in case it is really needed. As soon as all tutorials are done, be ready to do some serious game play.
If you are familiar with marble shooter then you know the rules. Shoot the marbles of the same color to eliminate the marbles.
The speed of the marbles start off slow. Point your shooter to the marbles and just tap on the marbles you want to destroy. Along the game, you will notice there are arrows or square boxes that blinks on the marbles. Don't worry, it's not an application bug.
These icons, when destroyed, can help the marbles do a reverse or the marbles completely stops. These will help you destroy as much marbles as you can so that the whole path towards the cat are not full.
The game requires your quick thinking and your fast hands. The slower you are, the chances you might not make it.
If you cannot clear the level, one of your life will be deducted. Remember, you only have 5 lives.
It's a very simple game but the levels gets harder as you increase your level.
The Power ups
There are some power ups offered in the game. The crystal which fills up after you destroy some marbles can be a lifesaver when you are in a pinch.
There's also the powers you can get by destroying the marbles like Slow Activation, Stop Activation or Reverse Activation. These powers can help get pretty handy when the marbles are slowly filled up.
Although we do think there are other power ups available but we haven't gotten there yet.
Each level has a mark whether it's an easy or hard level. So you would know what you are getting into. There's a goal in every level. Finish the goal and at best, earn 3 stars. These 3 stars earn you potions. These potions can be used to create your own Garden.
But as you go along the game, it gets harder to get that 3 stars that you badly want to earn.
Basically, this game is fairly straight forward but never an easy one. This game is one challenging game and would need to have your fastest hands at play. Although we haven't gone to the farthest level yet but in time, we'll get there.
If you got a lot of spare time or just need a game to pass the time, this game is for you.
