"4.5 of 5 stars. Connectrode is everything I look for in a puzzle game!" - TouchArcade.com
"...Gorgeous in design and both smooth and challenging in play. …You’ll never tire of this epic game of thought-provoking strategy." - AppAdvice.com
"Connectrode is easy to pick up and hard to put down." - The Austin Chronicle
Connectrode is a pure puzzle game of simple but elegant strategy. Connect the chips to clear them from the board - but with each connector you place, beware blocking off parts of the board from yourself!
The game has no time limits - play at your own pace. Once you master the gameplay, try for a high score and discover new depths of challenge and strategy - and land a high score on the Game Center leaderboards.
The "boards" you play in Connectrode are randomly generated - you'll never run out of new challenges. Post your score on a board to Twitter or Facebook, and friends can use your link to play the very same board - they may even beat your score and send a challenge back to you!
Connectrode features a gorgeous ambient soundtrack by David Pencil (known for his soundtracks for Penny Arcade: The Series on PATV). This game was developed completely independently by a small team in Austin, Texas.

A Nearly Perfect Puzzle Game
Updated review: October 18, 2014
Wanted to add updated review to let potential downloaders know that even though the game is no longer supported, it's still a lot of fun to play. Unfortunately, the game sounds don't work on my iPhone 6+ using iOS 8. So that's a bummer. Only the music works.
It also could still use an "Undo" button. Just a simple, one move, Undo function for those of us with unsteady fingers who need to take back that last misplayed move. But I wrote the developer a couple of years ago and he said he would not add that feature.
My review is almost identical to that written by ElfynChild on April 7, 2012, so rather than rewrite it I'll just reference it. Go read it for a very balanced, in depth review.
I will reinforce a couple of things that the developer should pay attention to.
First is that the game must include an "Undo" button. It's far too easy to mislay a block because the touch points don't seem accurate (or are simply too small on the iPhone screen). The ability to make that simple correction would be wonderful.
Also, showing what block comes up next would turn this from more of a game of chance into more of a game of skill and strategy.
Those are my two biggest requests. Otherwise this is a fabulous game. Well done. Great music. No time limit. Good job! It goes to five stars with those changes.
First of all I LOVE this game! I have my son to thank for gifting me this game. I like the upgrades, but one thing is left out. While you can turn down the sound effects and it stays the way you left it even after closing the game, the same is not true of the music. It would be great if the music would also stay the way you leave it. Thank you
PLEASE! PLEASE!!!! PLEASE!!! Fix the music!!
Looking forward to more from Shay!
Like many more this week, I was drawn to purchase this because of the creator's open stand against Zynga and OMGPOP, in the face of the childish flack he took from OMG's narcissist CEO. Connectrode, despite the hype, proves to be a genuinely well-designed, engaging and just plain fun game. I can't wait to see more from this developer.
