Fourtex Jugo Indie Game Review
Are you looking for a single-player strategy puzzle indie game to play? There’s a new indie game that is fresh to the market called Fourtex Jugo, that you may want to check out.
In Fourtex Jugo, you are given a layout of 4 columns by 4 rows of white blocks. In those blocks, you have to combine either two numbers of the same, or two numbers that add up to 15. However, whatever white box that exchange happened in, will make the white box turn gray. When you add two numbers that equals 15, the number block changes into a colored block. Add two of the same colored blocks together and you get a white nom. Add two different colored blocks together and you get a black nom.
When you add the white and the black nom together, a hole opens up in the puzzle. The further you continue adding blocks together the claw of Jugo appears. When Jugo becomes powerful enough he will steal pieces and points from you. The goal is to get to the target amount of points that is written on the side of the game before all the white squares disappear on the puzzle.
There’s a lot going on in Fourtex Jugo and it took me several tries to figure out what exactly was going on, despite the tutorial. Unfortunately the tutorial wasn’t handy after the first couple of moves. It was a lot of trial and error to finding out what was going on.
However, if you’re a fan of single-player strategy puzzle games like 2048 you may enjoy this game. Adding in the element of Jugo stealing your pieces definitely adds in a different aspect. If you’re not sure if you would like this game, try the demo first!
