Blossom is an interesting puzzle game. You connect pipes and rotate tiles so that you can water your flowers. The Kindle platform works well for this kind of puzzle game because it is on a grid. Your goal is to connect all pipes to the watering can so that your garden can be irrigated.
There are 120 puzzles to choose from and you can choose levels of difficulty ranging from easy to expert. Blossom is the classic computer puzzle game. You’ll be navigating through twists and turns all over the “garden.” The flowers bloom when you connect them to the water supply. Watch how they bloom differently depending on what end you connect them to.
Gotta love those addictive games that don’t require too much brain power…
“Connecting the pipes and flowers to the watering can in Blossom is a nice balance between easy and challenging. It’s involving without requiring too much brain power and it’s possible to spend way too much time playing without realizing it. The five-way button on the Kindle is a satisfactory game control, though it’s easy to hit the wrong button and pause the game. That’s OK. I love this game!
Pluses: The game keeps track of time elapsed. A hopelessly fouled up game can be reset, and once all 120 games are played it’s possible to go back and replay.
Minuses: Color would be nice, but we’ll have to wait for the Color Kindle for that. ”
The following review is a good suggestion for future updates to Blossom.
“The game only uses the 5 way pad and the space bar to continue after completing a puzzle. I suggest to the developers that the game would be improved by combining the game time screen with the completed puzzle … maybe just add the total time under the flower field … and ask the player to click the 5 way to continue instead of the space bar … it is just soooo much effort to move my thumb ;-)”
So, great game, and quite reasonable at around two bucks. The Kindle game collection has certainly grown over the the last year or so. I love seeing old computer game favorites being added to the Kindle so that they can be enjoyed on the go.
