StoryIt all starts in Crowberry Woods. The darkness is rising. The only thing that can stop it is to be found in these woods. Caught in the middle of all this, the burden has been placed on your shoulders. Your journey starts at the giant Mushrooms.
How to play
The basic goal in Sparkle is to form groups of at least three orbs of the same color. When a group is formed, the orbs disappear. Playing the game is simple: aim with your mouse and press the left mouse button to release an orb. You can switch orbs in the Orb Slinger with the right mouse button. You have to light up the outer ring of the Orb Slinger pedestal to complete a level. In the picture below you can see a situation where the player could shoot the green orb to break a total of five orbs.
The Quest Mode is the main game mode. You need to complete levels to progress on your journey through Crowberry Woods. You will gain new abilities in the form of amulets.Challenge
In Challenge Mode you try to be as fast as possible. Each level can be played on four difficulty levels which are: apprentice, journeyman, expert and master. While apprentice may be quite easy and relaxing, the master will challenge even those most devoted to art of playing Sparkle.Survival
In Survival Mode your task is to survive as long as possible in levels that get more and more difficult by the minute. Use your amulet wisely! There are total of four levels which are called apprentice, journeyman, expert and master. Each level has five phases. You need to survive through all these phases to fully conquer an amulet. You can only play with amulets you have unlocked in the Quest Mode.
Power upsYou can collect powerups by shooting at them. Once hit the powerup activates immediately. You gain powerups by making at least three orb breaking moves in a row.
AmuletsYou gain amulets throughout the game. You can select the amulet you wish to use by clicking the amulets button in the map screen and then selecting the desired amulet. The more you play, the more amulets become available.
