ZPlay’s new iOS release, Inner Circle, may just drive you round the bend

Posted by 148Apps Staff on June 8th, 2016

Pairing slick visuals with a frustratingly addictive premise, ZPlay’s Inner Circle is a must-play for anybody who enjoys a good time-sensitive puzzle game. Using a simplistic (but highly effective) layout, the game is opened up to a vast demographic of players – young and old.

To succeed at the game, players must work to line up rings of colour to match that of the ‘inner circle’, whilst the ring shrinks in size and looms closer to its orbit. If players don’t line up the colour before the ring hits the centre - by tapping the screen to rotate and swiping to shrink faster - they will lose the game.

With an impressive 250 levels to get stuck into, the title offers extensive gameplay and promises to get right under the skin of its players. Perfect for those who lean towards brain-training and cognitive challenges, with its Tetris-esque format.

Inner Circle possesses a selection of interesting features, including a night-mode to ensure the brightness of the nigh-neon colours doesn’t affect eyesight, and an Arcade mode that allows players to plough through levels indefinitely. The night modeis achieved by altering the colour scheme presented in the original version of the game.

The title will be available soon, for iOS devices, so keep circling in on that App Store!

However, there's also something to be said for making a mobile game accessible to the widest possible audience, which is what the latest update to slither.io has done.

That said, there is life beyond Snapchat. A number of free iPhone and iPad apps are out there that allow users to easily communicate with friends and loved ones without necessarily needing to download the current industry leader. Let's take a look at five of them that are currently popular on the App Store charts.

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 6th, 2016
