Gameplay 80%

90 Degrees is a minimalistic puzzle game where you have to separate balls bouncing around the screen by drawing lines either vertically or horizontally. The objective of each level is to place each ball in its own square. It sounds easy, and it is at first, but eventually there will be so many balls on the screen, and moving around so fast, that things won’t be a piece of cake. 90-Degrees-Screenshot-1 In order to draw a line, just touch the screen and drag your finger either up or down, or left or right, and the line will start being drawn from the center of the screen in the direction you draw it. If a ball hits the line end, you lose the level and have to start again, but if it touches the already drawn surface, it will bounce in the opposite direction. If you draw a line and create a new square without a ball in it, there won’t be any problem. The first minutes don’t represent much of a challenge, but after a few levels the difficulty increases quite much, and you’ll need to time your lines really carefully. Overall is a minimalistic casual puzzle, that can get pretty addictive once you reach level 10 or so.

Graphics 70%

90 Degrees features a simple design, just a gray background with some round figures and white lines. Animation wise, there’s nothing going on besides lines drawing and balls moving around, so the game is definetely not eye catchy or a visual experience worth remembering. 90-Degrees-Screenshot-2 While it’s pretty minimalistic, the visual style gets the job done, and for this kind of gameplay, the user won’t really complain. It’s meant for casual players just looking for a few minutes of entertainment, and while there are similar games with cartoon character and fancy visual effects, 90 Degrees it’s still a good option.

Value for your Money (100%)
