Flash Diamond is essentially Collapse (for those who are familiar), but with a twist. In the game, you’ll see an assortment of different colored gems, placed in horizontal rows. The object is to click on groups of three or more matching gems in order to make them disappear from the screen. As you play, new rows will generate at the bottom of the gameplay area, pushing the previous rows closer to the top of the grid. Obviously, then, if your gems reach the top of the screen, and have nowhere else to go, it’d be game over.
The overall goal at hand is to do more than rack up a high score, however, as you’re actually trying to create diamonds on the screen. Diamonds appear when you make a match of 10 or more like-colored gems. To make creating diamonds easier, you’d want to play the game by going through one color at a time, leaving a single color for the very last click in the hopes that by that point you’ve created a large enough grouping of the remaining color to generate a diamond.
You can end the game at any time by making a match out of your accumulated diamonds. As you might expect, the diamonds provide a massive score boost, so you’ll want to have as many of those to click at once as well.
For those who would like to try the game, but don’t have an account on King.com, you can play the short game which lasts about a minute, just to get a taste of what’s in store. To play the longer game, you’ll have to signup for an account, but luckily, Facebook Connect is offered so it doesn’t have to be a long, drawn-out process.
