When you first begin playing Urchins Boom, this week’s Free Game Friday selection, your first thought is probably something along the lines of “well, that was easy!” And even after the second or third stage, you’ll more than likely feel much the same way. But wow, when the difficulty of this devilish, unassuming little puzzler begins to ramp up, it gets really hard, really quick!
The object of Urchins Boom is deceptively simply; tap one urchin and send its spines into the others to blow them up. But while some urchins require only one tap, others require two, three and so on. And of course, you’re only given a fixed number of taps with which to accomplish this.
