“Father of Internet”: Anonymity is okay

Note that if you’re addicted to retro games or easily get hooked or obsessed with fun games, then you should just skip reading this now.  I’m about to introduce you to the most addictive game of the year.. Smagnetron.

This game takes you through the universe in a ship that uses magnetic forces to propel and guide itself through the cosmos.  You, of course, have to be astute enough to harness the power of physics to maneuver this craft, the Smagnetron.

On each level, you’ll have access to things like g-spinners, ejectors, injectors, reversers, rotators, and more.  The faster you get through to the end of the level, the more crystals you earn and so the more you’ll be able to buy to upgrade your ship.

There are over 100 levels in all, each in one of five constellations: Ursa Major, Scorpius, Pegasus, Taurus and Cassiopeia.  The visuals are all retro and very cool, with sound effects to match.  The real hook here, though, is the awesome hypnotic soundtrack to go with the thoughtful game play.

The game is available in the App Store for both iPhone and iPad.  It uses the entire Retina display (if you have it), so it’s highly engaging on the new iPhone.

This is a very addicting game that will have you playing for hours.
