- Unique concept
- Streamlined visuals are effective
- It's never 100% clear what your goal really is
- Can be more confusing and frustrating than fun
It's certainly a novel take on the futuristic auto-runner / match-three formulas, but the lack of internal harmony means Kapsula can sometime be more confusing than entertaining.

What do you get when you combine a futuristic arcade racer with a match-three puzzler?
The answer is Kapsula, a peculiar mash-up of genres and ideas from developer Beavl Games.
In addition to making you navigate your vehicle around a minimalistic sci-fi cityscape, the game also encourages you to merge with other vehicles by crashing into them. You can then create chains of colour which must be wiped out for points.
Pocket Gamer review Harry Slater was a bit bemused by the game, as you can hear in the video review above.
DescriptionKapsula is a puzzle/racer set in a Soviet space colony full of clones. *WARNING: It's a difficult game, comrade!
