I would give this game five stars, I really enjoy playing it. However, it has a major glitch. Occasionally it will lose the game you're playing if you switch out of the app for any reason, phone call, text, etc. Even though the app is still open, when you return to it, the main menu page appears and you must start a new game. Doesn't happen all the time though, sometimes you'll return to the app still in the middle of the game you left. If the developers could fix that, it would definitely be five stars
Any chance you are planning to update this app to x64 bit? I play this game almost everyday and I don't want to loose it when iOS 11 is released!!
A great Drop7 alternative
The new update remedies the lack of an audio toggle and iPhone 5 support. Thanks guys!
Eighty-eight is a well polished game and plays like you'd expect it to if you've ever played Drop7 (or its predecessor Chain Factor online) but this time, you've got an 8x8 board to work with. New players might take a couple rounds to get the hang of the game, but that's the hook. Once you get it, you're already addicted. It's brain crack, seriously.
The inclusion of combo badges is a neat addition, allowing players to see just how many points they gain from putting long chains together. The bombs add more strategic gameplay too. The game history is really nice as well.
