Critics on the original version of Gaia...

"One of the most usable iPhone games we’ve played yet [...] This beautifully crafted puzzle game deserves a spot on every iPhone." - SlideToPlay.com (4/4 Must Have)

(8/10 + Editor's Choice)

Unique and Captivating

Engaging graphics and clever gameplay combine to create a never-before-seen experience only possible on the iPhone.

 

Gaia is simple: pieces fall onto the screen and link together to form complex blocks.  By rotating the iPhone and eliminating the right blocks with a touch, a player can grow a larger block and earn more points.  In this way, Gaia rewards deep thinking players while remaining simple and intuitive.

 

We take pride in Gaia's satisfying responsiveness and ease of play.  So be careful, you may find yourself addicted.  We did.

BEST Christmas Version of App SO FAR!

:
This app is really really great!

It is probably the BEST christmas-tization of any app so far.

The game play beats as you break chains and when you break chain after chain, it plays a little harmony to it. Upon finishing a level it plays a cute short song as well.

VERY well executed app I might just have to buy the regular version!

5/5 stars

Thank you, thank you, thank you

I love the original Gaia and discovered the Christmas version last night (Christmas Eve) when I couldn't sleep and picked up my iPod around 3am. I was thrilled- I feel like I've been given a wonderful gift. I love how the sacks of coal are used in this version instead of the skulls and crossbones- it's a really cute touch.

Just Like Gaia but with Christmas Cheer!

:
This Plays just like the standard Gaia but all of the graphics have been replaced with Christmas themed graphics. As in the original version, the images of beautiful hand-drawn images that fuse together in a delighful and visual appealing way, for example the boxed gifts appear to stack when fused. Each image has its own chime and when you play the frantic timed levels, it sounds like you are playing a song as you rapidly tap the images. The countdown to the next level is now a string of lights, and when you turn the device you hear soft sleighbells. Gaia is one of my favorit iphone games and I was hoping they would come out with new graphic sets for the game so the Christmas Edition is very welcome. I hope they come out with more grapic sets in the future. I've included my original review of Gaia below.

This game is a clever and addictive variation on the Jewel Quest style of game play. The twist is that 3 or more matching pieces that touch, fuse together into one unit. Touching a fused unit, destroys them and awards points based upon a complex calculation that includes the units size, the current level, and the number of times you have destroyed a unit of that size, plus any multipliers that appear on some units. Instead of new pieces dropping from the top you can twist the device to control which direction that the pieces slides towards and where the new pieces emerge much like you do in Trisim. The fused units lead to interesting play as odd shapes may block new pieces from emerging from some directions and some pieces get locked inside larger snake like units. As the levels ramp up obstacles crop up with greater frequency. Every 5 levels a special timed speed level appears. The artwork is appealing with the fused pieces creating an ever changing landscape. I have downloaded a ton of games, and this is one of my favorites. I'm surprised that is not more popular. For the price, you can't go wrong. Highly Recommended.
