Diabolika

Diabolika

This game is the brainchild of Derek Yu, an accomplished artist and the creator of several indie PC titles, including Aquaria and Spelunky. The goal is to blow up the red demons that populate the board before each turn; those that aren’t blown up, persist. A row of incoming greeblies is shown at the bottom of the screen, which the player can drag ‘n drop to the battlefield. What makes this game interesting is that each greeblie has it’s own explosion pattern; a cross, 3 adjacent squares, and entire column, etc. Explosions can trigger other greeblies, so it’s all about min-maxing your placement to create chain reactions. It turn-based, so there is no time pressure. While it’s not the all-time-best-game-EVARS, I like indie projects like this and I hope he does more for the iPhone.
