Product: Major Magnet
Developer: PagodaWest Games
The word 'magnetic' is a synonym of 'attractive'. When people think of magnets, they generally imagine a piece of metal sticking magically to another piece of metal. But magnets have another side to them. All it takes is a tiny half-turn for them to stop attracting and start repelling instead.
Major Magnet is capable of the same feat. In its early stages - and in a lot of its latter ones - this authentically arcadey casual game contains nothing but invention and flow and nostalgia and joy.
But after a while a subtle shift in orientation makes it, if not repellent, then at the very least less attractive than it promised to be at the outset.
Major Magnet is a colourful, playable, and imaginative arcade casual game that suffers from a vertical difficulty curve
