Pobs was voted one of the Top-20 casual games of year. This should be enough to let you know that this game has some very attractive qualities. The way the game works is that each player has pobs that are each a different color. When it is your turn you can choose to either copy your pob to an adjacent cell or jump with it. All of the opposing players pobs that are near your pob that you just put down will become yours. This is a basic strategy game of wit and forecasting moves. The better you are at guessing your players moves, the better you can set yourself up for a win.
The game is over as soon as all of the free cells are taken up. The way you win the game is by having the most pobs at the end of the game. Pobs Android game is very unique and lets you challenge yourself as you move through the puzzle. You and your opponent start with the same amount of Pobs and you battle it out to the end.
Just a note of advice, the best way to learn how to play is to just face-off against the computer. Once you get through the initial shock of the first few losses, you will have a much better idea of the strategy you should use to win. The more you play the easier it will be to play, and the better you will get. Pretty soon you will be addicted to it and will be pulling out this Android app anytime you have a spare second.

The good parts about this game are that it is fun and very challenging. We need more Android apps like this to give us more variety. The bad parts are that it does not have a lot of features. It has limited internet connectivity and you can’t even post the high scores online. A better multi-player option would have done this Android app a lot of good.
