Kuchibi is a new puzzler with a unique game idea. No match-3 or falling-blocks clone,
but instead a game with a new exciting mechanism that is equally captivating as those classics so that you will just
want to keep on playing and playing. Oh, and did I mention the explosions? Lots of them!
The goal is to score as high as possible, and explode as many stones as possible, by building the largest possible
chains, which are then ignited.
For each exploded stone you get score points. The farther away an exploded stone is from the ignition stone, the higher its score.
So the goal is to create the longest possible chain, carefully avoiding to flip a corner stone so that it becomes
"locked" into an unwanted position and also avoiding a premature ignition by accidentally flipping the wrong straight
And to make things even more interesting, there are of course various types of extras to earn and use, for example
bombs of different types, jokers and multipliers. The game also has four different game modes,
each in three difficulties, local highscore lists, online top-score lists and you can earn medals in the ranks
Bronze, Silver and Gold. You can even view replays of the turn where you earned each medal. Perfect for bragging
in front of your friends with your latest Kuchibi accomplishments!
The rules are simple. Each stone has a fuse connector and there are only two types of fuses. Straight fuses and
corner fuses. You build fuse chains by flipping the existing fuses. Of a corner fuse, only the free ends can be flipped:
If both ends are free, both are flipped at once (to the opposite side of the stone). If only one end is free, only this
free end will be flipped. If no end is free, the fuse can not be flipped at all. A straight fuse can always be flipped
(between vertical and horizontal) no matter if it is connected or not. But if a straigt fuse is flipped so that it
connects with another straight fuse, then the flipped fuse is ignited and this ignition spreads along the fuse chain
in both directions, exploding the underlying stones.
