Pebble Jump HD [rating: 3.5/5]
Pebble Jump HD for iPad is a solitaire style puzzle game where the object of the game is to not only clear the table of pebbles but ensure that the last pebble finishes up on a given spot.
The premise is simple enough as is the implementation. The large pebble board is clear and looks good too and the orange pebbles are large and easy to see.
The pebble board is not filled with pebbles, instead the pebbles are place sporadically across the board. In fact the first few levels contain only handful of them as you practice your moves but as you move through the levels the pebbles will not only get more numerous but the challenge in clearing them all will get more difficult too.
The end spot for each level will be marked with a star and as you step your pebbles over other pebbles the pebble that is leapt over will disappear so you’ll clear the table as you go.
You can undo your moves apparently limitless number of times if you feel you’ve made a mistake or you can even reset the whole level and start again. You’ll also restart again if you run out of moves and you have pebbles left over or aren’t on the star shape.
If you get really stuck you can use one of your hints and that’s just exactly what they are, they don’t tell you exactly where to make your move but the do highlight the spaces that are used to complete the level. This helpless your focus on your solution without given the game away completely.
You have to complete the levels concurrently meaning that you can only do the 1 level in front of you and until you solve at there is no chance to move on to any others. There are 120 levels in total split into three difficulty levels of easy, medium and hard and they will certainly give your brain a good workout.
There’s no multiple-player mode where two players could battle it out on a single device to see who completes the levels the quickest and no leader boards either local or online to rank the quickest players either.
Pebble Jump HD is a simple solitaire puzzle game which despite have many bells and whistles will still provide an adequate challenge to those who enjoy logical problem solving.
