Ensō is a brand new type of puzzle game! It’s a brilliant, addictive way for anybody to build their logic and decision-making skills.

Ensō is a character in Japanese calligraphy that symbolizes enlightenment, infinity, elegance and strength. This game incorporates all of those elements into an original gameplay experience.

You may have played connect-3 games before, but you have never experienced a puzzle quite like this. Inspired by traditional tabletop games like Mahjong and Mancala, Ensō is designed to entrance the player into a zen-like state. Players of all types can relax with Ensō thanks to the unique colorblind mode and multiple methods of intuitive control.

Your goal is to match three or more like-colored marbles in a row. Plan your moves wisely to beat the highest score. Certain marbles contain numbers: 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 7. These marbles can only be rotated as many spots as their number, so you’ll have to plan ahead to match marbles and earn points! Watch out for bonus symbols that add even more depth and fun to the game.

Like any good puzzle game, Ensō requires you to think multiple moves ahead in order to maximize your score. Every move in Ensō affects the entire board, and it’s important that you analyze the full effects of each swipe. As you play, you’ll naturally and intuitively train your brain to make logic connections and solve puzzles.

Ensō serves as both a relaxing zen experience, as well as a test of puzzle skill for competitive gamers. Active leaderboards mean you will always know where you stand against the world’s best Ensō players. Do you have what it takes to reach number one?

A Real Review


Okay. Graphics are good, music is fine. Gameplay is not original, but it's rare so that's good.

The reason for the one star is that an ad came up for me to download something else. That's not a problem - I even downloaded the other thing. But it would not let me get back to the game. I had to close the whole app out and restart. Because the game is unplayable, I can't give it a better rating. Four stars if it were playable.

PS: guys, it's pretty obvious reviews are fake when they say NOTHING about the game. It's fine to fake reviews to get people to download, but don't insult our intelligence.

UPDATE: tried again to see if it was just a fluke and the next time I got a pop up I was able to close it. But still, something has to counter those fakes...

Lives cost to much


First, this is a really great game. It's not the typical match three games, which I personally get bored with. This requires a bit more strategy but remains relaxing and easy going. The big problem I have is the $8.99 price for infinite lives. I want to play the game, not spend a lot of money for lives or wait forever for lives to play. I wouldn't mind $1.99 or even $2.99, but not $8.99. Yet another great game that loses its greatness because of its in-app purchase prices.

Interesting game mechanics


I like this game. You can think do some amount of plan ahead to make bigger moves. I would rate the game with more stars if unnumbered orbs were a little less easily come by - it takes a lot of strategy out of the game. I wish there were another mode that had an end goal (clear all orbs, for instance).
