- App Store Info
From the culminated efforts of two fantastic developers, GeoSpark is a highly addictive pick-up-and-play game where players must shoot their way to survival by destroying all the geometrical “sparks” whilst trying to achieve the highest score possible.
The game can be approached in two ways. You can either take the easier and subsequently longer approach and tap and destroy each of the sparks for 10 points, or if you're feeling more adventurous you can tap on a spark and drag it to a similar spark to create chains which attract a nice score multiplier. The only catch with the second approach is that the chains create gravity wells which pull the sparks together and increase the risk of sparks colliding, so the longer the chain the greater the risk which adds an exciting and tactical element to the game. The game has also utilised Openfeint for local and global leader boards as well as achievements.
The graphics are a visual treat with neon-like, vector-based objects on top of a smooth animated grid which display sensational particle effects as each spark is destroyed. The soundtack like with most puzzle games is ambient and suits the game well with nice explosive sound effects.
GeoSpark with its simple yet addictive gameplay and amazing graphics, is a game which has delivered everything its promised and so much more. It offers great re-playability value and for its low price, is a must have title for anyone who enjoys a good puzzle challenger.

WARNING: HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!
Get ready for geoSpark – a collaboration between the acclaimed developers of geoDefense and Harbor Master. It’s the fastest game on the App Store!
An assortment of colorful neon Sparks are flying across the screen, and it’s your job to prevent any two different Sparks from colliding. Chain similar Sparks together by dragging them with your finger. The more Sparks you eliminate at a time, the more points you get.
But be careful! As your chain gets longer, your finger becomes a gravity well that draws all nearby Sparks inwards, adding even more entropy to the mix.
Be on the lookout for bonus Sparks with special powers – they’re the key to mega success. See how high you can score, then brag to your friends via OpenFeint!
geoSpark: all the spectacle and style you expect from the geoDefense series, with the addictive, casual gameplay of Harbor Master.
Thanks from Critical Thought Games and Imangi Studios!
