Flood-It! Over, and over, and over…

What I love about my iPod Touch is the fact that I can waste time on it in a lot of different ways. Especially when I’m waiting anywhere where they don’t allow cell phones. Here enters Flood-It! by LabPixies. It’s a free app that is also a very addicting game.

It works by changing the colour of a square starting in one corner, floods those same coloured squares touching the original, and expands across the board like a virus. You have to fill the board with one colour in a certain amount of steps – that amount of steps depends on what difficulty you choose. Did I mention it’s free?

Not only is it addicting, but you get to choose between 12 different 6-colour colour schemes to play the game in and 3 different difficulties. It seems like a mindless game, but if you want to win you’ll have to find a strategy to fill the board quickly enough!

This free, fun, and colourful game is a must-have time waster on your iPod Touch or iPhone. My record is 18 on the small board – can you beat it?
