Project Void is a fun block based iPhone puzzle game from iGotit Games with a wonderful soundtrack and addictive gameplay. Playing the game is very self explanatory once you launch the app, but it goes something like this. You are given a random board made up of empty (black and eventually colored) pixel based blocks called “voids”, that you must fill in. To do fill in your board, you drag and drop one of 4 available pixel based building blocks onto your target board. You can rotate the blocks around by using a second finger to swipe left or right simultaneously as you are dragging the block. After each move a new block is added to your pile of building blocks to use. Keep going until you fill in the entire board, or you run out of time.
Speaking of time, you can play the game in time based mode, or in untimed mode. Start out with the free playing mode so you can get a feel for how to use the blocks, how to rotate them, and how to plan your moves as to use the blocks in a way so that no pixels are left unused. This may seem easy but can take a lot of practice, strategy, and also a good amount of intuition as well. As you start to complete the board, you’ll start running out of perfect matches, unless you’re truly awesome. But not to worry. If you have extra pixels, they fall off the board, but you get penalized in the scoreboard for each single pixel that is dropped off as you play.
As you get further into the 50 stages you will start to see colored blocks. Colors add a second element of trickery to the Void game. You will have to match them as well as the board at the same time. As you get further into the game, you will also get handed additional boards to fill in per stage, which you can see by swiping the playing board left and right. Now you can use your building blocks in two places, so you’ll have to plan out your moves with pinpoint accuracy for a good score. Finally, to help and reward good skills, you get a variety of power-ups that you can use to blow up blocks, fill in the empty voids and more.
Project Void is seriously addicting. The game graphics are minimalistic, and mostly in gray scale, backed by a science fiction like trance soundtrack. There are options for changing audio levels, and posting online scores. If you enjoy playing logical puzzle based games, Void is a must have on the iPhone. Simple, original, a ton of replay value, and the right pricing all make Void a terrific little app. Can you fill the Void?
