Game of the Week: Kaleidoscope Reef
Well, my apologies for not getting to this last week (or doing it earlier today, but where I live, it’s still Tuesday soooo…) I was just having a ton of fun being a counselor at a camp for disabled kids. Then today I spilled Mello Yello on my laptop and spent like half an hour drying out the keyboard and then the battery died. Plus I had no wi-fi.
Once upon a time, there was a lovely little coral reef populated by all sorts of colorful fishes and sea creatures. Unfortunately, the reef was ruined by a sinking oil tanker, and all of the fishes lost their home. In Kaleidoscope Reef, a Strategy game suggested by brandi mcdougle, you must grow and feed corals to rebuild the reef.
As long as you’re able to drag stuff with a touchpad, Kaleidoscope Reef is laptop-friendly.
Doug Bot has a series of quests to play this game, where you can earn badges, extra Flow, and even some gear.
Here are some tips:
- Make sure you feed coral polyps the right color of food. You can tell which color of food a coral likes by its color.
- Some corals like more than one type of food. White ones can eat anything.
- You can get rid of the tar sticking to the rocks by clicking on it.
- In the level with the magma vent, you can change the color of food by putting it in the side of the vent like an oven.
- In the level with the clamshells, try to place the correct colored corals right above the clamshells that release their color of food, that way they’ll catch them automatically so you don’t have to catch that flying food.
- Don’t feed the skulls to the corals. Please.
- Careful of fish that will eat your coral, feed it skulls, steal your food, etc… Most can be scared away by clicking on them.
Well, there you have it. Do you have what it takes to save the reef? (c’mon guys, it’s easy.)
Have a suggestion for a game you’d like me to explain or feature? Leave me a comment or shoot me a message on here or on ourWorld. I’ll try to take all suggestions, but of course it may take a while.
