Magic Hearts – Break a few hearts why dontcha?

Magic Hearts is a great app for anyone who is looking for a new game that's fun to play for short period of time (read: when you need to kill a bit of time), doesn’t take long to load, doesn’t come with several tomes of gameplay instructions and can be paused or interrupted at any given time without losing your score. If all or some of the above applies to you, be sure to check out today’s review!

Magic Heart came out around Valentine’s Day, 2011... You could say I’m about half a year behind reviewing the app, but better late than never, I say. The game is a pretty simple one:

Lots of different coloured hearts (red, blue, orange, pink and yellow) are stacked one on top of the other. If you tap on two hearts that are the same colour and happen to be next to each other, they disappear; the hearts that were above the two that disappeared fall down and take their place.
From now on, whenever there are two or more hearts of the same colour next to each other they can be removed in the same way, until there are no hearts left. You can then move on to the next level.

This might sound easy, but let me give you a word of warning, my pretties: you have to be careful that you don’t accidentally let a heart slip by, because otherwise it can happen that you have one lonely little heart left over at the end of a level, which, of course, you won’t be able to get rid of. Should this happen you won’t have a choice but to start the level all over again (you can do so by hitting the Reset button, located at the top of the display).


When you successfully complete a level, you will automatically reach the next one. Everything gets saved automatically, too.
I found the automatic saving feature to be convenient, seeing as Magic Hearts is the type of game one is likely to play when one is in-between things, when one is highly unlikely to think about saving stuff manually.


The further you get, the smaller and more numerous the hearts become, meaning the game becomes increasingly difficult.


On the whole my verdict is: Magic Hearts is a pretty neat game if you’re looking for something to pass the time.
