(8/10 + Editor's Choice)
Unique and Captivating...
Engaging graphics and clever gameplay combine to create a never-before-seen experience only possible on the iPhone.
Gaia is simple: pieces fall onto the screen and link together to form complex blocks. By rotating the iPhone and eliminating the right blocks with a touch, a player can grow a larger block and earn more points. In this way, Gaia rewards deep thinking players while remaining simple and intuitive.
We take pride in Gaia's satisfying responsiveness and ease of play. So be careful, you may find yourself addicted. We did.

Gaia's concept and gameplay remind me of Tetris, but with the added fun of being able to tilt the board. The only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is because the tilt mechanism (actually the tilt's software implementation) has too much hysteresis, and only allows me to slide the pieces all the way to the end of it's vertical/ horizontal travel. The game would be more fun if I could gently nudge a piece into a slot diagonally. Otherwise, this is a fantastic game.
Best of Class
This game is in the "drop and pop/match 3" class of games, but it has some very innovative aspects with the seamless linking of a variety of nature themed tiles and the accelerometer control. I think its pretty much way out in front of the rest for its production value - incredibly smooth fluid animation, visual appeal and soothing sound effects. Very Slick.
more than worth trying!
fantastic game! I'd been considering the full app and this lite version is the perfect teaser to whet your appetite.
stunning, slick graphics; my favorite sound effects in any game yet; and nuanced game play make this fun and thought provoking app a must have!
