Catch, a fun touch puzzle game for Windows Phone 8

Catch is a casual game for Windows Phone 8 that calls upon you to connect like symbols together without getting your lines crossed.  The game is simply drawn-up but challenging enough to keep you interested.

The game has forty levels of game play with the free version with additional levels available through in-app purchase.  Catch also has a colorblind mode that adds a letter to the colored stars to make them distinguishable.

If you are looking for a challenging game to help you pass a few minutes with, Catch is worth a try.

The main menu with Catch has options to jump into the game, rate the game over in the Windows Phone Store, view other games from the developer and follow the developer on Twitter.  At the top right corner, you will find a mute button and as you begin each puzzle, an additional icon will appear that resembles an eyeball that turns on the colorblind mode.

Game play is simple with Catch.  Each puzzle will have an assortment of colored stars that you will need to connect the stars of the same color.  The paths connecting the stars must not cross and some levels contain bridges and overpasses to act as intersections.

To connect a series of stars, tap and hold on your starting point/star and draw a line to the next star of the same color.  Continue drawing until you connect all the stars of the same color.  Lines are drawn either vertically or horizontally.  Some puzzles will have barriers you have to draw around to make the connection and some barriers will allow for diagonal lines.

As you progress through the levels, game play gets a little more challenging with more stars added to the puzzle.

Overall, Catch is a fun game to consider for your Windows Phone.  It isn't a puzzle game that will drive you crazy but challenging enough to be an entertaining way to pass the time.  The first few levels are rather easy but allow you to get used to game play.   The first forty levels of puzzles are included with Catch with additional puzzles available through in-app purchase.  The Master Pack and Elite Pack both costs $.99 each and contains sixty levels per pack. 

Catch is a free game and available for Windows Phone 8.  You can find your copy here (opens in new tab) in the Windows Phone Store.

  • How many puzzle games to play:/
  • Desperately waiting for temple run2 on wp8 platform. Today i updated temple run 2 on android device. It was a best. New features were added like swimming in running water, Christmas artifacts, Santa Claus character and new objectives.
  • Omg y ur making us so jealousy :'(
  • I deleted Temple Run 2 off of my Nexus 5 before the update. I don't feel compelled to download it again and most likely, when we get it for Windows Phone, it will probably be the version that I deleted on Android and not the Christmas version. Here's hoping it is the latest version. Side note, even though I have and a Nexus 5 and iPad 4, I download the WP versions of apps that are on all 3 systems just to support the Windows Phone ecosystem. Go Team!
  • Great going dude
  • Looks pretty interesting as a time waster. I'll cop.  Thanks George.
  • I wanted to buy sparkle 2 but it was 4,49euros and it as droped to 1,29euros today
  • It's too easy for my liking. I'd finish the whole thing within a hour, considering it only took me 5 minutes to run through 40 levels. :O
  • Considering it took only a few minutes at most to get through the first 40 levels, I'd like anyone who's bought the other levels to confirm if it actually gets challenging in those levels or not?
  • Most challenging levels is in "Elite Pack".
  • It was enjoyable, but I'm with others the first forty levels were incredibly simple and over in less than 10 minutes, probably will grab at least one of the extra packs if only to support the developer as I quite like the concept.
  • so addicted. love this :)
