To play MegaFlux
, you will be turning tiles that are already on the board and adding more tiles to specific spots. Components are different from normal tiles. They will let you modify the Flux stream, which can be quite handy. The Reverser will change the color of the Flux stream. To throw in even more of a twist, there are encrypted streams as I mentioned before. When you run across one of these, you will need to use a Decrypter Component before the stream reaches the processor. Encrypted streams can also be reversed, so as you can see, you will need to figure out how to stack these things just right. There are Infected processors to worry about as well. These will have to be dealt with by using a green SuperFlux, which you may have to make with a Capacitor. There are SuperFlux Generators for some levels. While this all sounds complicated, itís really not that hard to deal with. Sometimes these Components will need to be placed on the board in the correct spot. To place them, you simply have to tap on the component and drag it to where you want it to go. There are quite a few other types of components for you to use, but MegaFlux
is really good about explaining them well before you see them. Youíll get the hang of turning and placing things pretty quickly. Learning how to solve the puzzle is all up to you!
The only real problem I have found with the controls is that there is no way to drag a component off of the board after you have placed it. You can switch it with another component from the selection at the bottom, but if you put them all on the board so that there is nothing to switch it with at the bottom, you will have to start over. I found that it would be really handy to be able to drag one on top of another and just switch them that way.
If you are playing on your phone and get a phone call, MegaFlux will pause your game for you when you answer the phone. At least, it did that for me all but one time. That one time, unfortunately it simply kicked me out of the level and I had to restart it. Otherwise, I had no trouble taking calls in the middle of a level and picking up right where I was.
So far, I have spent more than a couple hours playing MegaFlux and there is still so much left for me to do. Most of that has been concentrated on the Challenge Mode, so Iíve still got plenty more hours in Relax Mode left. For a game that is free, thatís quite impressive. If you are playing the free version, you will notice an ad running across the very bottom of the screen at all times. I did not find it intrusive or distracting. You donít ever have to pause your playing just to watch an ad. You can buy the ad-free version for only $1.99, which will also come with five hints, which is a pretty good deal if you ask me! If youíre looking for a new puzzle game, I recommend you check out MegaFlux today, especially if you are a fan of pipe games. It should provide you many hours of entertainment!
