ZigZag by Ketchapp is one of those games which keeps things simple and then you end up being hooked. All you have to do is tap away to change the direction of the ball and avoid falling off the platform. The hard part is that the ball moves continuously; you just decide in which direction.
ZigZag is an arcade platform game where you control a little black ball that you have to try to take as far as you can through a maze filled with dangerous corners.
Gameplay in ZigZag is very simple (as usual in games developed by Ketchapp), but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Lasting more than 30 seconds in a ZigZag game is a challenge that you’ll have only your fingertip to get you through: tap the screen once to make the black ball rotate one way, tap twice and it will change direction. It’s that simple and yet so complicated at the same time.
Your aim in ZigZag is to do as many rotations as possible, which typically requires you to go very far. On the way, you can also pick up colored crystals that will give you extra points (even though that’s all they do).
There are no real levels, just randomly generated scenarios, so every time you start again you will get a new challenge. Try to get as far as you can and collect the rubies along the way which can be used to unlock upgrades.
ZigZag is an addictive and quite lovely game where you can play quick rounds lasting from a couple seconds to one or two minutes. There is also an online leaderboard and a good handful of achievements that make the game even more addictive.
ZigZag's graphics are simple but well finished. The touch response is accurate, which is a real necessity for this type of game. The randomly generated scenarios and upgrade store significantly improve the gaming experience. It also includes online rankings (Google Play Games).
