Mobile Game of the Week #10- Zhed

I’ve got a bit of a simpler game this week. ZHED, by Ground Control Studios, is a decently challenging puzzle game where you move blocks to hit a certain square. Each block has a number on it, and when swiped it will cover that many squares; no more, no less. If a square is already covered by a block, another block can “hop” over that square, essentially gaining an extra movement tile in that direction. It’s simple, elegant, and can get pretty challenging. If you’ve having trouble you can use a hint, which you can pay or watch an ad to get. Of course, it’s unnecessary, as you can get through all 100 levels without using a single one.

Aesthetically, the game’s alright. Each of the five level packs has a different color scheme, and some look a little nicer than others. As you can see from the page image, it’s not dull but it’s not all that exciting. Of course, given the nature of the game, the simplicity does work out in its favor. When doing puzzles, you don’t want the background to distract you. There is music, but as usual, I preferred playing my own over it.

There’s five level packs of 20 levels each, which was more than enough to occupy me for the week. Of course, if you’re a lot smarter than me and can power through them in a couple days, check out one of my previous selections:

Alto’s Adventure
