Divide and Conquer is a simple yet addicting game for the Android platform. The objective of this game is to do exactly what the title says, divide up the map and conquer the free floating balls.

At first this game does seem fairly simple and you won’t run into many issues. You’ll be creating lines across the screen by swiping either vertically or horizontally. Once you swipe, the line will spread out towards both walls from the point where you connected with the touch screen. The fact that the line goes in both directions allows you to be a little bit more tactical in your approach.

Each level gets increasingly more difficult as more balls are added and their speed increases. If a ball hits your line before it’s complete, you lose a life. You only get three lives so use them wisely or you’ll find yourself starting over constantly, which is no fun at all.

The secret to games like Divide and Conquer is to separate as many of the balls as you possibly can. Keeping them all grouped together might make it easier to take out 75% of the board, but breaking down the remainder of the level will be very difficult to accomplish with a cluster of balls bouncing around in one small space. If you’re looking for a simple pick up and play app for your Android phone, definitely check out Divide and Conquer.
