Circull is a relaxing yet mind bending puzzle game.
It combines whimsical creatures inspired by the works of M. C. Escher with the familiar rules of a match three game.
* Relaxing and engaging puzzle play.
* Easy to learn but challenging to master.
* Great for on-the-go gaming.
* Fun for all ages.
I have been getting all kinds of crap from my hubby because I can't seem to stop plying this awesome and unique game! Thins are getting messy around here! I AM a bit frustrated, like another reviewer, with the hints. Sometimes you need them (when there's only one match and YOU can't find it no matter how long you've looked!), and sometimes they are offered too quickly, and are annoying, since you don't feel that you have exhausted you're own ability to find a match. Also, when I stay up until 4 am getting to level 15 or 16 (when I normally only rarely make it past level nine), and it gets me in trouble with the spousal unit, I expect, when I finish the level and go to bed, that in the morning, when I start the app (first thing-with my coffee!) I will be able to continue from there. No so. Sometimes, it kills your game and you have to start fresh. UGH!!!! Is this random act of unkindness built in, or a bug? And the elephants...don't get me started! The way they fit together (or don't fit together....maddening!!! By design? Who knows, but it keeps me coming back for more whenever I have a spare minute! Brilliant!
Really 5 stars but sadly I cannot play it because...
I am an audiobook addict so rarely am I using my device without a book being read and this app doesn't allow background music/book reading app to run. It's frustrating :( I like the app. I'd probably play it over my over mind numbing bejeweled-like games.
Things to upgrade:
Allow sound to play in background.
Changeable color schemes.
More levels :)
Special gem animals that give extra points or achievement cards for game center.
Anyway, I like it but I don't often get to play as I can't give up my books!
A Hidden Gem
Circull is one of those games you hear about from a friend, because unfortunately sites like Touch Arcade and TUAW haven't written about it yet.
Once you find out about it, and try it, you're going to love it. It is a great puzzle game that combines wonderful art with great gameplay.
Kudos for the developer too for supporting both iPad and iPhone.
