Tap/touch any of the flying colourful 8 shapes (box, sphere, pyramid, torus, capsule, cylinder, cone and tube ) before they disappear down the black hole. But, you must avoid the Bad Shapes (Box and Sphere) and the Bad Colours (Green and Grey/Gray). Tapping any Bad Shape or Bad Colour removes a Heart from your Level Lives. When all Lives are lost, Game Over!
Beat the Best Score within the defined maximum number of 99 colourful Shape objects per game.
8Shapes starts at Level 1 (of 8). However, when you exit the game at a specific level, then the same level is presented when you re-launch the game again. You can also set a Game Launch Level in Settings (then exit game and re-launch).
8Shapes levels have pre-defined lives and maximum spawn time (time between different shapes being generated or spawned) per level. In Settings: Game Custom Parameters, you can Set your own Max Lives (from 1 to 9) and Max Spawn Time (from 0.4 to 6.0 seconds), which will apply to all levels when a new level is launched (not the level displayed before the parameters are set). You can always return and Cancel the custom parameters, which will restore the defaults Max Lives and Max Spawn Time per level.
MUSIC & SOUNDS:
Game spawn and tap/touch/hit sound effects have dedicated On/Off buttons at anytime during the game (bottom of screen buttons) and can also be set in Settings. When you tap/touch Settings icon, all music and sounds will be set to Off.
Game Score increases +1 for each Good Shape or Good Colour tapped/touched. The Game Lives decrease -1 for each Bad Shape or Bad Colour tapped/touched.
The Bad Shapes are: Box and Sphere.
The Bad Colors are: Green and Gray.
The Good Shapes & Colours are all others!
