For some reason, conventional games with a "glow look" have been all the rage. iPhone apps and games like Spawn Glow and, now, Glow Puzzle, really make you wonder why this small modification to an otherwise tired formula allows it to reach the top download spots at the iTunes App Store.
Glow Puzzle is a basic puzzle game where you are given a basic geometric graphic and you must trace a path through it. What it is composed of is lines and dots, which act as joint points between the lines. It is up to you to analyze the Glow Puzzle so that you can figure a way to go from your starting point to have covered every line without doubling up on any single one.
This is a fairly standard puzzle game that you could probably find in a Flash version on a back alley website, but now it is here on your iPhone at it is making waves. The "glow" aspect of Glow Puzzle comes in the fact that the color scheme is Tron inspired and it the line lights up as it forms. This is not something that is going to excite a generation raised on macro-stimulation, and probably not even those that grew up watching Saturday morning television in black and white.
You can go ahead and download Glow Puzzle since its free, but its time that all iPhone gamers step up their expectations. On the other hand, Glow Puzzle may hit you perfectly and will become a great game for passing quick minutes on public transportation. In the end its up to you.
