Project Void is a cover all kind of puzzle. You have to cover the entire grid with the colour indicated. It starts out with only white coloured Tetris shapes to rotate into place. As you progress the game gets more intricate.
The controls are all touch based. Tap and drag a shape at the top of the screen, and by using a second finger you can rotate the shape. I found it quite clumsy to rotate the shapes this way, and would rather have had some kind of rotate button option as well. Place the shape, and keep filling the void until you are done.
I am having a hard time hiding the fact that I found Project Void to be a really boring addition to the App Store. The reason is that basically you can fool up as much as you like because there is no game over due to not matching the shapes correctly. You get penalised for any parts of a shape outside the void, but other than that you can basically just chuck the shapes onto it. There is a timed game mode as well, but it suffers from the same basic flaw. If you are ready to loose a couple of points you can breeze through it without any trouble. To me this made Project Void a complete yawn fest.
The graphics aren’t too exciting either opting for a minimal approach. The music is ok, but I rather play my own, and thankfully the game lets me.
Online scores can’t save Project Void for me, and I really think that it needs to go back on the drawing board. A game that isn’t challenging is just boring, and when it isn’t really nice to look at it can’t pass as a board puzzle game such as Triazzle. I can’t recommend Project Void at all.
