Earlier this morning, Eli and I spent some time with Eyelord [Free]. It's a marble popper that tasks you with spitting gelatinous eyeballs into a line of other eyeballs. Matches are created when three or more like-colored balls meet. The game ends if the last ball in the line of balls manages to enter the Eyelord's mouth.

So, basically, it's like Zuma, except with eyeballs and a massive heavy metal skull that eats eyeballs. Notably, you just tap to spit a ball, which is actually feels like a much better way to play these games. It gives you some actual precision.

Anyway, check out our video if this seems up your alley. It should give you a much more solid indication if this will click or not with you.

    This game is pretty good fun. It's highly polished and I've enjoyed what I've played, though I must admit the game is quite obviously geared toward pushing the IAP. The very first permanent powerup to unlock takes 5000 coins to get and each game produces roughly 75-100 coins. When you level up, you'll get a 1000 coin bonus, but you'll likely level up at a rate of once every 5-6 games or so. It's certainly not impossible to progress and obtain powerups, but e whole point to unlocking powerups is that it's supposed to provide some sense of progression in what is otherwise a very repetitive experience. The longer it takes for the player to complete objectives, the more likely the player is to drop the game and move on. I guess I just wish the game progressed quicker without having to pay for it...

      I got my first 2 permanent power ups very early on with no iap. I eventually bought the coin doubler since I am enjoying the game and it was free. I personally think the iap model was well done, and I like that you don't need to spend a cent to unlock any content if you don't want to. Once you get better at multipliers you can earn coins pretty quickly even without the coin doubler.

      Agreed, but unfortunately thats just the nature of a free game.  The devs gotta monetise it somehow.  If they aren't pushy with the IAP they will end up like the devs of Super Gasketball--may they rest in peace.

        Agreed. I'm not hating on the game, I really enjoy the gameplay and the polish and style (the rock tunes are great). I just worry that I'll grow bored after an hour pr two since I don't really feel like I'm getting anywhere... :-/ And while I wouldn't mind getting the coin doubler to remedy this, I feel like even that wouldn't quite make it progress at a pace I'd enjoy. I don't need powerups necessarily to unlock each round, but I'd like objectives or SOMETHING to make a sense of progression attainable.

        Nah, once you get the coin doubler and a few upgrades it is simple to get 500-1000 coins per round.  Just think of the base game as a trial version and the $2 upgrade as the "real" game and it all sits much better.  $2 for a game that is well-polished is a good deal.  I've played this a LOT the past few days.  It was great to fiddle with while watching football on Sunday.

        Heaven forbid someone spends $2 on a game they like!

    Pretty fun little game!

    This is like....my love of The Residents and and my love of Zuma had a really, really glorious night together and 9 months later this happened.

    • FrandSX

      Actually... about 18 months later. Halfway through development we kind of stuffed the baby back in and let her rock for another 9 months. This hopefully turned out to be a good decision, we'll see!

  • TheCurrentGamer

    This is a very entertaining game. The iap is actually very unobtrusive and the speed and flow of the game are top notch. See you on the leaderboards!

  • JCat_NY

    GREAT game with fair IAP system (see Temple Run). This is not your grandma's Zuma. 

  • morpheus

    Great game. May I suggest it's the love child of a late night rendezvous between Popcap and Brutal Legend? 😮
