Oh, this game...
This has to be one of my favorite games on the App Store. This game combines simplistic rules you could teach to a six year old, just swipe to move and you don't stop until you hit something, with mind bending logic puzzles... It's hard to describe the feeling when you beat a level you've been stuck on for a long time and unlock a new world, do yourself a favor and download this game. (Also would like to mention I haven't ran into any of the levels becoming impossible like other people have mentioned) I played this game a year ago or so, beat all the levels then went back and beat all but two of the levels perfectly (with minimum moves) try as I might I could not perfect those last two levels. Then I came back to the game recently and beat both levels. Now I'm the thirty second person to ever have a perfect game of squarescape will you be the thirty third?...
Great puzzle game.
I've always loved puzzle game, so much that I end up burning myself out on specific ones.
Squarescape is different, it has that perfect level of simplicity mixed with complication allowing you to feel accomplished yet incredibly dumb for not solving puzzles faster. The creator did an amazing job. And from what I hear it was a side project!
Perfect game to kill time and get a brain work out.
Thank your buddy Jack for recommending it!
Buy this game. I got sucked in and managed optimal scores on all levels. It's just the right mix of challenging and rewarding. Plus the author is just a student who responded directly to questions/suggestions and was super friendly and helpful. The add-on level pack is a little light for .99 but I bought it just to support this great game. Plenty of fun and "aha!" moments.
