A simple idea with some luck-based flaws, Plavee is still kind of appealing.

Plavee is a very simple game and that’s kind of what works for it. It’s the kind of game you can dip into when you have a spare five minutes and still enjoy that brief session. At times though, it’s going to feel unfair.

Your aim is simple - move the balls to the correct sides of the screen, according to color. You do this by moving a triangle along the screen, with its point and its flat sides redirecting the balls. Red balls have to go to the left, while blue balls go to the right.

It’s tricky though, because those balls can drop from the sky anywhere on screen and they come down at an alarming rate in very little time at all. Due to its random nature, you can end up with a blue ball on the furthest point to the left, leaving you with very little chance of actually getting it to the correct side. It’s possible but rarely while juggling other balls at the same time.

That’s the main issue with Plavee - it’s a little too dependent on luck rather than skill. No one likes to lose out because of such an incident and it soon proves a little infuriating.
