Magic Point Lite
So it’s a hard day at work, or maybe you’re in the bus or in the metro travelling to or from a particular important place you had to be at. You are tired and frustrated and need something to do. So what do you do when the newspaper in your hand doesn’t interest you much and you can’t really find the best kind of people around you to talk to? It’s simple! You whip out your Android device and get your game freak on with Magic Point.
Magic Point Lite is one of those typical Android games that will occupy you till the end of your virtual journey and continue entertaining you right till you reach from A to B. It will see to it that you have completed the entire game.
This is so because the game is relatively short and sweet and serves the purpose of fulfilling your time when you’re bored and have nothing to do.
Unlike conventional no-brainer button-mashing games, Magic Point Lite is a mind game where you need to apply your math brain to an extent and the analytical side to it in the rest.
Once you launch the Magic Point Lite app, the watery blue color of its interface will automatically soothe your eyes and you’ll be lured into clicking on the first of the following three options:
The About section will tell you all you need to know about the game and how to play it, but you won’t need to hit that button once you’re done reading this.
The white button that says play will lead you into a simple level section button which starts with level 1 that you are required to unlock.
As initially mentioned, the Magic Point Lite game is small and thus you will see only 1 levels to unlock but the nature of the game is such that you will want more of it even when you’re done.
Now once you dive straight into level 1 what you are required to do is follow a simple pattern. The pattern is basically a grid of 5×5 squares and a design that has random dots scattered covering one box each.
This pattern has an evident shape to it. All you have to do is follow the shape.
The first three to four boxes have the shoe moving in a particular consistent direction.
You job is to detect and identify this movement and choose the most appropriate option from the list of four options given below and it’s as simple as that.
You can see the level you are on at the bottom and keep progressing as you strain your cerebral cortex on the puzzling of the puzzles. The game is a perfect time saviour and you know by then that you’ve added some bit of value to your time.
The puzzle evidently gets tougher as you progress and unlock each level one by one.
A common complaint is that the game is too short and could have provided for more than just 10 puzzles, but the purpose is to kill your time in the most constructive way possible when you are at a loss for things to do, and the Magic Point Lite game does exactly that.
Happy brainstorming Androiders!
