We know. It doesn't look like much.
But we promise that it's a very good puzzle game.
Like, really good.
What's New in Version 1.11
- A minimalistic fix related to the japanese version.
More than what it seems...
First off, if you loved Simogo's other hit, Device 6, you will love this game. If you didn't like Device 6, you will still love this game (as long as you have a respect for puzzle games and care more about thought and strategy than mindless tapping).
As some other reviews have mention, there's a lot of depth here. And they're right. There are TONS of little hidden secrets. One example of this is if you hold on the "Spl-t" title screen you can play a mini-game where your balancing a ball. There's much more but I think I'll let you figure that out for yourself :)
On the surface, this game looks simple. You tap squares alternating the type of line you break. At first glance this game with its simple design, ironically has a lot of rules and looks complicated but once you start to get the hang of it you can't put it down (Also if you shake the device it can change the color if you ever get bored of the normal 'black and white' theme, and if you flip the screen over you can invert the colors). The goal is to get the highest score. Surprisingly, there are TONS of possible strategies to this game, and it's just one of those unique games you can't get enough of.
Remember, don't quickly disregard the game because of its early frustrations and huge learning curve.
All in all this is an amazing game that is easily worth the $2.99, all it needs it time and it will become your new favorite game.
Have Fun :)
When you pick this game up, it can seem boring at first. You get a few hundred points at first and you're maybe asking yourself "what's the point".
But you pick up a few common patterns after a few games, and start playing around, and soon your making a few thousand points. There comes a point where suddenly patterns start turning into strategies, you check out some ideas...
And suddenly the game opens up into something amazing and deep.
You realize you are fighting to stay on the cusp of creation and destruction as the whole world crumbles around you. The complexity of this struggle is great, and you build a huge chest of tools to carry with you.
Now you're making tens of thousands of points, breaking a hundred thousand, getting deeper and deeper. And you find yourself sketching mathematical analyses of fall patterns, looking for that something that unlocks it that you now know, just deeply, intuitively know, is hiding there.
This could very well be the mindworm that Device 6 alluded to.
Lot of Depth Here
When I first opened this game it was not immediately apparent how great it is. Reading the instructions is fairly necessary though you can figure out the general mechanics without doing so.
I've been playing for a few days now and I've already changed my strategy completely several times. There is a lot of hidden depth to this game. Very fun, no time pressure at all. Doesn't look ridiculous in public. Definitely worth a buy.
Source: Brought enough apps at this point I shouldn't talk about it. I don't review but this game is 5 stars. (Also math major, maybe that's affecting my score)
