Get ready for an addictive but simple turn-based strategy game. Zigby is a fun-loving alien who wants to visit his friend, but his older brother interferes with the ship, so Zigby and his brother take turns controlling it. Will Zigby outsmart his brother and make it to his friend ? Or will the brother prevail and get Zigby grounded ?
The playing board is made up of a grid of points. Each turn, you move Zigby one square at a time, but can extend your turn by "bouncing" off grid points that have been used before. Grid points may contain a meteor, star or blackhole that provide further bonuses or penalties. Depending on the setup of the board, you may choose an aggressive strategy to get to your destination, or a defensive strategy to block off routes back home. Each game takes just minutes to play, while the larger maps (for tablets) can make for lengthier and more challenging sessions.
The game contains an embedded help system so you can learn the game as you play. It takes only a minute or two to learn all of the rules. The game starts up with a basic rectangular map, but many maps are available. Some maps will only play on larger devices, so the selection of maps on a tablet provides a range of simple to complex game boards. You'll quickly see that there are a large number of combinations between the maps and the randomness of the boards.
