Phone Battles Begin

Unlike many of the people I work with, I like simple video games.  I don’t need epic story-lines and award-winning graphics.  I don’t need booming soundtracks and epic boss-battles.  I just need something to occupy my time in short bursts.  I also need someone around to compete against—either head to head, or in a level by level basis.

To that end, I play games like Words with Friends (and I am sure I have written about it–I have.  I have linked the text.).  I am not sure my family enjoys playing with me, but they manage to keep their trash-talking to a bare minimum.

So Yesterday, I discovered Happy Glass.  It has all the things I listed above.  It’s a cute problem-solving game that has multiple levels that get harder.  I enjoy it because it requires problem solving skills and a fair amount of experimentation.  Because it has levels, I can compete against friends and family.

After a hundred levels, things started to get harder.  I and a friend found ourselves stuck on the same level for what seemed like an eternity.  Then, with a little bit of strategy and a staggering amount of good luck, I completed the level first.  Though they are only bragging rights, they are all mine.  Perfect Moments come from anywhere.
