Connect 4 by Electronic Arts is the real deal for a digitalized version of Connect 4! Last week, I was wondering if there was a legit Connect 4 app, and didn’t find one. I ended up downloading an app with the same concept called Fantastic 4 In A Row. It was a pretty good game, but very simple. Other than switching out the background, nothing else changed, so it got boring fairly quickly. Last night, I was showing my hubby my new app, Fantastic 4 In A Row, and he asked my why I didn’t download the real version. I did a search in the app store to show him how there wasn’t one. I guess the reason I didn’t find the real version was because I spelled out Connect “Four”, instead of using the number “4”. Sure enough, there is a legit version developed by Electronic Arts, so I immediately knew it was going to be a hit!
This virtual Connect 4 is extremely similar to the real game! The colors used are identical, and the virtual grid is identical to the one I have in my pantry! I love that! Connect 4 can be played in a classic-mode, which is the mode most of us are familiar with), or it can be played in a more advanced-mode. The advanced-mode can be played as a single player or multi-player.
Connect 4’s graphics really surprised me – flashing bright and bold colors! The setup is pretty awesome, too. Before you begin your game, you see what looks like the box of Connect 4 you have at home. Then, the top of the box pops off and you watch as the game is set up in front of your eyes! It’s so cool! If you’re hunting for Connect 4 for the iPhone, this is the one!
