Cosmorphosis Free is one of those Windows Phone games that is hard to put your finger on. It is a fast paced game that calls on you to tap targeted aliens that are bouncing about in space.
You've got to reach a target goal before time runs out and to help slow you down, a pesky UFO skitters about the screen dropping bombs. I'd call it a puzzle game but some may see it as more of an action game. Regardless of the genre, Cosmorphosis Free isn't a bad game to pass the time with on your Windows Phone.
You can play Cosmorphosis Free as a stand alone game or create an account with Cosmorphosis which lets you create a player profile. The main menu has options to jump into the game, buy the full version (on Cosmorphosis Free), check the high scores, access your gaming options and view the help screen.
Cosmorphosis Free's gaming options cover music/sound effects on or off, vibration on/off and the option to log in/out to your Cosmorphosis account.
When you first launch Cosmorphosis Free, the game will walk you through the help section that will cover the main thrust of game play. Cosmorphosis Free is a multi-level game where you are tasked with tapping targeted aliens as they bounce about in space, reaching a goal within a minute. The challenge being they constantly morph and you have to tap them as they morph into the correct target.
The game screen for Cosmorphosis Free has your target and goal information in the upper left corner and your timer in the upper right corner. To slow you down, a UFO will randomly fly across the screen dropping bombs designed to hinder your progress (freezes aliens, carbonite bombs making aliens untappable, etc.). You can defeat the UFO by tapping it four times before it crosses the screen and diffuse the bombs by tapping them twice. Each will earn you bonus points but will also take time away from the main task.
The further you progress in the game, the quicker the aliens morph and bounce around. Tapping the wrong alien will cost you points. There are three levels of difficulty (easy, medium and hard) to keep Cosmorphosis interesting.
Game play is rather simple but is not without challenge. Cosmorphosis Free has decent graphics, nice sound effects and will test your reflexes and concentration. There are two version available for Cosmorphosis. Cosmorphosis Free is an ad supported game that you can find here in the Windows Phone Store.
If you don't like the ads, there is a $.99 ad-free version of Cosmorphosis (has a few more levels as well) that you can pick up here at the Windows Phone Store. Both are compatible with Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices.
