Weekend Distraction: Star Mania! (this is a misleading title)

Screen Shot 2014-05-02 at 7.49.50 PM When I hear the word “MANIA!” attached to an app, I’m prepared to turn away. I don’t want bells and whistles, excitement and frantic action. If I turn to a game on my iPad, I want to relax, and just kind of zone out for a bit.

And so, for this Weekend Distraction, I give you …. Star Mania, which, in my opinion, is NOT at all manic. It’s quite relaxing, and pleasing, and pleasant, and delightful, and enjoyable (and mis-named :) )

Star Mania presents you with a screen of colorful stars. Your job is to tap groups of the same color and watch them disappear. Tap groups again and again, in an attempt to clear the screen. It takes some thought (but not much) to plan your strategy. Your goal is simply to clear as many stars as you can.

When you get near the end of the screen, there is a bit of a twist. See these non-star squares? Tap them, and the stars nearby change color. Just a bit of a mix-up to keep it interesting.

From Skitch-5

There are some levels to proceed through, but the basic premise is group and pop. Group and pop. And relax. And have fun.

You can try Star Mania for FREE with a limited screen version in the iTunes store

The Full version of Star Mania is $2.99 in the iTunes store.

  1. If only there was room in life to play, Kathy…!
    Seriously though, I played a game, similar to this on the daughter’s iPad. It was relaxing…
    I’ll investigate… :D
