Review from TheAppleGoogle site

7 Planets for iPhone is a Classic Remake of a 1985 Board Game http://theapplegoogle.com/ 7 Planets is a logical board game based on the traditional board game of 1985 named Ziv Zav. It is not as simple it looks, 28 balls of seven different colors are moved around until a row of 4 ball is achieved for every color. The gameplay is fairly challenging. Swipe the ball to move it up, down, left or right. But that swipe will not only start moving the ball but all the balls in that row or column will move together depending on the direction. Each row or column will continue to move until they hit a wall. Lining up the colors in a row of four is not as easy as one might think. One could just not line the rows up as the wish, then it wouldn’t be a game. The walls have colors indicated on them to which the ball is need to be aligned. As progress is made the levels get a bit trickier. Blocks appear in the field which increases the difficulty of the level. The appearance and design of the app is decent. Colors are nicely picked and the sound of the balls is great. There aren’t other modes in the game except of the main board game named after Ziv Zav. For a 1985 board game, it’s an excellent digital remake. Overall, the game has great mechanics; looks simple but challenging and the lack of modes won’t let you down. Even with these small features, you’ll find yourself playing for hours. There are no cons to it...

7 Planets The Perfect Logic Board Game http://www.iphoneglance.com If there is ever a great puzzle game then 7 Planets has to be up there with the best of them; forget Connect Four or Solitaire marbles this is a game of logic, cunning and strategy and is a whole heap of fun. The Ziv Zav game that was bought out in the mid-1980s was where 7 Planets was born. I personally never played that game but it was apparently groundbreaking in its day. It is a subtle and irrepressible game that will keep you occupied for ages. I know when you first look at the game it appears to be simple and straightforward and even a little basic but don’t let that fool you. 7 Planets has far more sophistication you might imagine. It is actually rather calming and relaxing. For those of you who are addicted to puzzle games and strategy then I would say this game really hits the nail on the head. It is a logic puzzle that will bend your mind and there truly are several more of the puzzles in there somewhere that will keep you on your toes. In fact I am willing to bet you will be playing for several hours on end. There are four elements that are captured in a ball. Each colour needs to be in its own row then you unite the seven planets all together. To get the menu up you have to tap the screen twice and there is Game Center leader board available which allows you to check your score against others. There is also a...

A fascinating but very tricky puzzle game. Nice review on German site (use google translate) http://www.apps.de/review/7-planets Target of 7 Planets is to move all the balls on the board in the specified color order. The board consists of five columns and eight rows, each with four ball in seven different colors. This is deceptive at first glance, simple gameplay! Although there are no modes (apart from an expert mode), it comes with 7 Planets a good sweat. If you move a ball that is in a row or column, move with all the balls in this series or column until they are stopped by a wall or another ball. The game is fascinating in its simplicity. Only once you have solved the classic game mode within seven minutes, the expert mode is enabled. Conclusion: A simple but very fascinating, challenging game you can play again from time to time between. CHECK OUT OTHER GREAT REVIEWS ON http://www.apps.de WEB SITE!!! Original text in German language: 7 Planets Ein faszinierendes aber sehr kniffliges Puzzle-Spiel. Ziel von 7 Planets ist es, alle Kugeln auf dem Spielbrett in die vorgegebene farbliche Reihenfolge zu verschieben. Das Spielbrett besteht aus jeweils fünf Spalten und acht Reihen, mit je vier Kugel in sieben verschiedenen Farben. Das auf den ersten Blick einfache Spielprinzip täuscht! Auch wenn es keine verschiedenen Modi gibt (abgesehen von einem Expertenmodus), kommt man bei 7 Planets ganz schön ins Schwitzen. Bewegt man nämlich eine Kugel in einer Reihe oder Spalte bewegen sich alle Kugeln dieser Reihe bzw. Spalte mit, bis sie von einer Wand oder einer anderen Kugel gestoppt werden.  Das Spiel fasziniert in seiner Einfachheit....

7 Planets iOS Review – Reunite the planets 7 Planets for the iPhone is a mind bending logic puzzler based on the 1985 board game Ziv Zav. You have 28 balls in 7 different color sets, which symbolise the planets in the solar system. You need to move these balls around until you get a row of 4 for each color. Gameplay Swipe to move the balls around the screen and make rows of 4 of the same color. Now when you swipe a ball you will not simply move that single ball, instead all the balls in that row or column will be moved together rather than one by one. Even if there’s space between two balls – no matter how much space there is – all the balls will move. Each row or column of balls being moved will continue to roll until they hit a wall or a still ball. Don’t let the lack of game modes turn you off to this title, with these small features you will find yourself playing for hours on end. Test yourself and become the best with “Game Center” leaderboards and achievements. Try beating your last completion time or shave off the number of moves taken for each level. Best yourself and become the master of the 7 planets. Pros: Great game mechanics, Simple yet Challenging, Pick-up and Put-Down gameplay Cons: None The Verdict 7 Planets is definitely one of those games that I highly recommend you have on your iOS device especially if you’re a traveler. It’s a great drop in and drop out game, simple yet challenging and is great...

7 Planets for iPhone – Very good and Challenging Puzzle Game! Nice review on Greek site (use google translate) http://www.iappsreviews.gr/7-planets Text from Google translate (with little correction): In AppStore now are so many good games that you really sometimes don’t know what to choose! The small company Toma & Puzak introduced quietly a very good puzzle game the 7 Planets which we present today because they managed to keep us interest on its beautiful graphics, but especially with the high level of difficulty, which is legitimate, since games are getting easier as a result of heavy fast. The game is based on good old Ziv Zav game that had appeared in 1985 (when;;;). On the screen we see some balls that symbolize different planets. There are 7 colors with 4 bullets in each color. The aim of the game is to place the balls by color, as the table shows. This seemed easy but in practice proved quite difficult! Very reminiscent of the old mind games (such as the cube of Rubik) and requires real thought from the player to reach the solution. The graphics are beautiful, without exaggeration, the sound is adequate but austere and handling and movement is at a high level with easy and simple movements. The game is priced at 0.79 euros and is already in our iPhone. We like to support small and independent developers who really are the heart of the AppStore, offering small and quality applications.
