Rocket Mania! is a tile-twisting game in the same vein as old puzzle games like Pipe Dreams. Here, you'll be twisting tiles that have pieces of fuse on them, and you must connect the left side of the playfield to the right side in order to connect flames to rockets. When you do, the fuse burns, the rocket launches, and the pieces used to make the fuse are replaced with new pieces. The main game has you working under a time limit as you try to launch a set number of rockets in each level before time runs out. There are also other variants, including an arcade mode that goes until the screen fills with unused fuse pieces.
It's easy to understand and also a fairly easy game at first. Of course, each mode gets more and more difficult at higher levels, giving you an increasing level of challenge. All things considered, it's a decent puzzle game, but you'll probably plateau pretty early and start looking for something else.
