MegaFlux – if you love challenging logic puzzle games, then you must play this!
Dec 24, 2012 8:54 AM –
MegaFlux is a challenging and compelling puzzle game for Android. The game plays a little like a blend of Flow Free, Trainyard and SpaceChem- a twisting, connecting, logic-testing plumber-style game that is massively rewarding and nail-bitingly tough. If you like your game mind-bending and fresh, be sure to give this a look.
Tested on: Nexus 4
Pros & Cons:
- Neon retro graphics!
- Unlimited levels!
- Create your own levels!
- Two modes with another on its way!
- No paid-for version so you do have to put up with banner advertising.
MegaFlux is an excellent puzzle game that tests your capacity for logic to the maximum. You control a grid which contain a series of nano-pipes which in turn go towards powering one or more processors. The funny little icons are called Flux and these power the processors. You have to channel the right colour Flux towards the matching processor to make it work. All this starts pretty easy, but then it gets harder and harder with the introduction of additional components and larger grids!
Controlling the game is easy. Just tap one of the nano-pipes or a component to rotate it when the Flux automatically begins to flow. New components can be dragged into position as the level requires it. The challenge lies in connecting everything together as quickly as you can. There are scores to accumulate and achievements (in the form of medals) to collect.
Watch on Mobile
The game consists of two modes- Relaxed Mode which includes unlimited levels that range in both sizes and difficulty. Then there is a Challenge Mode which presents over 50 progressively fiendish levels to complete. According to the Google Play Store description, a community mode is also being created where you can create your own levels and share with other players.
The game is beautifully challenging and if you love logic puzzles, this will be right up your street. There is just the right balance here so the game is immediately rewarding and very addictive. You will have to put up with banner ads and, while these are not too annoying, there is no option to remove them at this time. This aside, I found MegaFlux to be a fantastic little game that is likely to keep you engaged for hours.

Completing a level is hugely rewarding and the game has a great learning curve, each level taxing you just a little more than the one before it. The game features plenty of levels, plus the ability to make your own, so it has a significant amount of longevity. With the introduction of community levels, it’s a game you might go back to time and time again.
I think if you consider the elements I mention above, plus the fact you have loads of medals to collect AND the integration of the Scoreloop social scoring platform, it very easily a game you can share and compete with friend over. If you like these games, it’ll certainly have to coming back for more.
The graphics are designed like a retro-arcade game with bright neon themes against an all-black background. Everything runs beautifully smoothly and looks vibrant and slick.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The music is nice, cheerfully futuristic and quite catchy. There are different notification noises too which work well with the theme of the game.
