Quite a while ago we featured one Windows 8 app that you could use to transform your Windows 8 tablet into a piano – Piano 8 was its name. Now, the developer of that app has reached out to use to review another fun Windows 8 game – Connect-Mania.
Connect-Mania is a very simple, yet very nice Windows 8 game for you to play on your Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or Windows RT tablet, as well as desktop device. The game features beautifully crafted hand drawings that I always appreciated in mobile games. Filed as a puzzle game in the Windows Store, this game will only take a little over 5 MB from your storage space, but it can take a lot of time, if you get sucked into it.
Connect-Mania is an addictive bubble connecting game for Windows 8
Your goal : Connect as many same-colored dots as you can in one minute. Too easy? Not too simple… Challenge your friends’ scores with the worldwide leaderboard. Highly addictive game. A game that is harder than it seems
So, as the description says, this is a game that is hard than it seems. After playing for a good minutes on my Windows 8 tablet, I can indeed confirm this. What’s cool about is that, the longer your line gets, the “sharper” the sounds gets, indicating that you’re about to receive a bonus which will increase your score. Many might think that these games are a waste of time, but they actually improve your attention for details. And in Connect-Mania, you only have 60 seconds at your disposal, so you really need to have an eagle’s eye to spot which is the best way to connect those colorful dots.
The game can be played with your mouse and keyboard or with touchscreen control support, on your Windows 8 or Windows RT tablet. If you get really good at it, there’s also a worldwide leaderboard where you can challenge your friends or players from all over the world to see who’s the better player.
