BLACKOUT! by Sunken Media is the latest puzzle game to be published by Disney for the App Store. Players will require more than just their luck and observational skills as BLACKOUT! focuses on the puzzle aspect of powering up cities that have been without power for too long.
Power sources under the city have been blocked off, but carefully clearing out paths will allow the energy to flow around the level in order to light up the remaining switched off lights. Paths can be blown up by combining explosives with three or more gems in the 'Power' mode or just a single gem in 'Light' mode. Once enough gems are destroyed you'll earn special power-ups to help you complete each level. Caution is still required despite the puzzle aspect of the game as random gem spawns can block corners of the level, making it hard to progress.
Art-deco inspired designs are evident throughout the game, from its interface right down to the bombs you detonate. This keeps things clean and easy to read, while the special effects provide a healthy splash of color to keep things exciting. The music is a soft blend between jazzy synth tones and some grinding rock moments, but iTunes is supported for background music if you're after a change.
You'll be kept busy for some time as you complete the game's 55 levels that slowly introduces new mechanics you progress, while an endless mode is available out of the box. A great addition to anyone's puzzle collection.

“…addicting and challenging…”
"A great addition to anyone's puzzle collection.”
“…a definite winner, and certainly is a must buy game…”
BLACKOUT is a match game with a mission. Time is running out and only you can save the city from blackout! In this illuminating new puzzle game, you must connect chains of subterranean crystals to clear a path of liquid energy that lights the city. Charge your crystal meter, trigger power surges and unlock special effects to score maximum points.
Three shimmering gameplay modes:
*Power — Challenge yourself in Power Mode. Create a chain reaction by matching at least three power crystals and a detonator.
*Light — Choose your path quickly and wisely in Light Mode. You can detonate one crystal at a time in this combination of maze and speed. *Eternal — How long can you keep the lights on in Eternal Mode. It’s just you against the darkness.
Radiant power ups!
*Detonate red crystals to unlock a superbomb, destroying the surrounding objects!
* Special green crystals reset your timer.
*Randomize your game board with the blue crystal power up!
*Yellow crystals instantly eliminate all the obstacles blocking your path!
Watch out for hazards and obstacles:
