Description

Flipster is a falling-block puzzle game. Individual blocks fall from the top of the screen, and can be moved as needed. If three or more blocks of the same color are touching, they will be removed from the board, blocks on top will fall down, and points will be given. The twist is that all blocks can be flipped, from one color to a second color, before landing. Power-ups include bombs (destroy all nearby blocks), row destroyers (destroy a row), flippers (randomly reflip a row or column), and color destroyers (destroy all matching colors). Special blocks include metal (will crush all blocks underneath, but cannot be matched), and stars (can only be matched with stars). Levels will be completed once enough blocks have been destroyed.

Two modes are included. Puzzle mode is level-based, with over 100 levels, and endurance mode just asks you to survive as long as possible. Each can be attempted on three different difficulty levels. Also included is a tutorial.

The retail version is bundled with Crystal Wizard.
