Splice is an experimental and artistic puzzler. Immerse yourself in its microbial world and start splicing! Every level ("strand") consists of a number of cells that you will need to rearrange into a target structure in several moves ("splices"). Exploration and experimentation are key in determining how the curious little cells react to each other. Predict the sequence of splices you'll have to make in order to successfully arrange each strand. Re-sequence, mutate, and splice your way through this unique puzzle experience, and you'll exercise your ability to visualize sequential series of shapes over time. Solve your way to the final strands and you'll be left with a heady sense of mental accomplishment!
After buying this game I can not believe that it has only received two reviews prior to this one. I hope this is due to people been too captivated playing this wonderful puzzle game to come here and add one.
I was attracted to this game due to my interest in biology, but don't that let that put you off this game if you have no interest in science as its not needed.
This is a game Underneath its science exterior of cell splicing effectively match the pattern. This is achieved by changing the original in the most efficient way. It's a very simple premise executed with a beautiful minimal style that's just a joy to play, with excellent one touch controls that are quick and easy to pick up. Coupled with this is a fantastic soundtrack that really captures the mood of the game.
All in all this game is easily one of the best games on iOS. Don't let the scieince themes and lack of reviews put you off buying this absolute gem.
Excelent puzzle game
Probably the best puzzle game on the App Store (sorry Cut the Rope). This is just so elegant and simplistic, yet not simple by any means. The soundtrack provides the perfect background to get you in the right mood and the art is just jawdropping. For me this is the pinacle of iOS puzzle games. I should also note I really like the lack of any tutorials and menus. Just like it should be. There's no need for them. Just experiment and enjoy it.
Really amazing game. Love the calming ambient music, and the graphics and style are brilliant. It's great and easy to pick up. New types of particles are added eventually and are a great addition to spice up the gameplay. Really awesome. Been a fan of Cipher Prime for a while now, I love their Pulse game too. I bought that and really love it, thank you Cipher Prime, for bringing us spectacular games!
