Thinking back to when I got my first Android phone (the awesome Nexus S), Glow Hockey might have been one of the first games that I installed at the time. Like everyone, I’ve changed phone’s over the years and with those changes often comes a changeover in apps. Priorities change and new games replace old ones and the cycle continues.
Recently, I became re-acquainted with this excellent game. Glow Hockey has its roots steeped in Air Hockey: a classic 2 player game where you each have a paddle and the goal is to score the disk in your opponent’s net.
Glow Hockey‘s paddles are look cool and fresh like digital Life Savers, and the disk looks a lot like a glowing Cert (without the Retsyn). I guess what I’m saying here is that Glow Hockey makes me crave candy, because it looks a lot like candy. It’s one of those games that is very well executed in both design and game play.
What’s also cool about Glow Hockey is that it’s both a 1 and 2 player game. I find that there are definitely not enough 2 Player mobile games these days and Glow Hockey manages to allow classic head-to-head playing. Glow Hockey is also ad-free, which is another bonus. There is also a Glow Hockey 2 which does have ads, so if you’d like to help support the developer, install that one.
