Super Collapse! is the second game in the Collapse! series and the first to be released for Windows and Mac OS X.

Revisional Differences

  • The v2.1 release of Super Collapse! in-game is just called Collapse! as opposed to v2.7's release having Super Collapse! as the title.
  • The title names of both are slightly different - v2.1 called GameHouse Collapse! and v2.7 called Super Collapse!.
  • When the Start button is clicked on in v2.1, the blocks appear instantly, whereas in v2.7, they crawl up from the bottom.
  • During the Level Complete screen, clicking anything on the right is impossible, but in v2.7, it is possible to use buttons during a level complete.

Loading Screen

  • The loading screen of v2.1 has the GameHouse logo slowly slide down from the top with a green static LOADING, while the loading screen for v2.7 has a static image of the loading screen, with LOADING flashing slowly.

Main Menu

  • The blocks are generated at random or can be the bonus level blocks in v2.7 when you boot up the game, as opposed to v2.1 showing just the bonus level blocks.
  • The menu itself also differs; in v2.1; it is much more like the Adobe Flash version's menu, with the buttons being white, and turning orange when hovered over.

In v2.7, this is switched, with the buttons being orange with the buttons turning white when hovered over. With a slight reduction in size too!

  • The overall background of the menu is a plain, orange gradient in v2.1, but was changed in v2.7 to have gameplay elements on the menu for background usage only.

And in forth of doing that, the UI was moved slightly to the left of the background.

  • The logo was also changed to have and add Super in a fancy, golden cursive font above Collapse! for v2.7.

  • Instructions are a huge wall of text with no images in v2.1, with just one page.
  • This was changed in v2.7 to have images with the text spread across two pages.

Exit Dialog Box

  • v2.1 lacks a greyed out END CURRENT GAME, which v2.7 has.
