Once you stepped into the game, you can not get out of it. Fill is an app game that has a background that may look unexceptional, but it would not disappoint you once it is played. While growing in levels, this app gets challenging, requires to have an excellent IQ, which is “a number meant to measure people cognitive abilities (intelligence) in relation to their age group,” and it is free to download.

While most people like to get challenged by anything, “Fill” is just the right app game to go too. First, it starts off by giving different levels and each level has 100 games. Once a level has been selected,  the puzzle starts of by the easiest game level someone can possibly get. As you move on from levels, the puzzle gets even harder. The difficulty of the game goes up to level 5.

“Fill” requires the user to have a good level of intelligence because when you are looking at the level, you may think that it is easy to complete, but in reality, you can actually mess up the way that the level has to be completed. It is okay if you do not have an excellent IQ, just give it a try and challenge yourself to do your best. Do not just give up and delete the game once you have only passed the easiest levels. Believe that anything you give a try will succeed later in the day.

Lastly, it is free to download. Other games require you to pay an amount of money for a game that may not even be interesting. The only thing is that if you get bothered by the number of advertisements that are coming out, you need to pay a certain amount of money to get them removed such as three dollars and above. One last thing that requires you to pay money is if you want hints for the level you are trying to pass. The number of hints that are available range from one to 110.

Some people may argue that the game is not that of an excellent game because once you get on it, the background is not that satisfying. A user of the game wrote, “It looked fun at the surface but the quality disappointed me a little bit.” I would have to disagree because once I opened the game and say the home page background, I thought it fit the game perfectly.

Another user argued, “Levels constantly get [repetitive]. [There are] only about 5 actually challenging level designs, bloated with ads and the controls are a bit wonky sometimes.” I would also disagree because the repetitive games are used to practice those levels and get comfortable with other harder levels that may not be easy to get through.
