I got way too excited when I saw this blast from the past was available on Android – Supaplex. It’s not newly available, in fact it’s been available on Google Play for a couple of years now, but this game polarised my family in the early 90’s when we first got it back in the heady days of 386 computing.
The game itself actually doesn’t operate that well on a Galaxy S4, in fact I think the resolution does it no justice and the control system is kind of awkward to begin with, but once you get the hang of it you’ll be navigating your character around the screen in no time. The game is very similar to boulder dash in that you have to collect what appears to be atom symbols while avoiding orbs which can fall on you. If you’re after a time waster this game is pretty good.
Available for devices running Android 2.0.1 and upwards, it’s a free game and at 1.7MB it’s only slightly larger than the original was which used to fit on a 1.44MB floppy disk.
