Rolling Ghosts

Oh physics puzzle games, I love you and I hate you. 

In 'Rolling Ghosts,' the player is tasked with assisting blobs that have been turned to ghosts by evil dark blobs. Over the course of 30 levels, you reanimate the blobs, who exist in various shapes (round, square, triangular and rectangular), use the different physics in relation to the environment to keep them alive and destroy the evil blobs in the process. The catch is, if they fall off the screen or overlap with another blob that is being reanimated they die a horrible death, much to the chagrin of the other blobs on screen.

 

This is a relatively simple, mouse-only game with 30 levels of fun. With a little mind-bending innovation you can easily solve most of the puzzles with a few experimental clicks and minimal carnage (though there are some levels where I managed to slaughter most of my blobs repeatedly before I realized what I was supposed to be doing). For effect, if one of the blobs does die, brightly-colored gore splatters the screen in this otherwise adorable game.

It's a fine line to walk between too easy and too hard. I found that I cruised through most of the levels, which is cool but has the adverse effect of making you think it's overly simplistic. Until you get stuck and want to punch the screen. This one is, I think, a little on the simple side, but again, no one really wants to get stuck.

You can play for free at Kongregate.com, or check out the developer, Jellimatic Studios, at jellimatic.com
