Gemstars: (for) The Idle

I feel like John Walker.

An associate pointed this action-puzzle game at me, and I decided to unwind from the simple joy of jetpacking across a landscape with no legs. Gemstars is a highly slick riff on the coloured-gem-matching game. Rotate circles of gems to create combinations and… well, it’s not ground breaking, but it’s got a certain panache. I especially like how the next levels are visible behind the one you’re playing, receding to the distance. And when the enormous constellation-fashioned sheep loomed up behind the playfield I filed it mentally in the superior-casual-game category in my mental head. The demo’s available here and the trailer’s beneath the cut. It features the enormous sheep.

I’m a sucker for sheep, it seems. It’s the Llamasoft influence, y’know?
