Beautiful but fussy

I wanted to love this game as I'm a big fan of imaginative visual puzzles. Great creative concept. Pretty visuals and soothing music. Gameplay is simple enough. Rotate the object in front of the light until a recognizable shadow is cast. I did love it at first. However-

There is a major jump in difficulty from single everyday objects to two-object obscure shadows. (Sock, the number "5" etc) At this point I found myself frustrated and burning through hints. Once you run out of hints there's no way to refill them. You can't advance beyond the level... Meaning, you're just stuck. Not the fun and calm time waster I was hoping for.

My second complaint is that the game is too fussy about what counts as a completed object. More than once I had completed the object- the shadow looks perfect- but I had to keep fussing with it to get the game to register that I was done. Takes the fun out of it to watch the timer ticking away while you know you're actually done.

Overall I still *want* to love it. But for how much memory it uses I want to be able to play it and enjoy it regularly. I find myself annoyed almost as often as enjoying it.


The price is an amazing deal for such a well-designed piece of art. The puzzles vary in difficulty and provide the user with subtle hints and a progress bar that lights up the closer that the puzzle is to being solved. What really took my breath away were the intricacies that went into making the game immersive. The music, different environments, and even the 3D-Effect presented using the gyroscope is very well integrated into the app. It's a very clean and polished interface that makes for an amazing app overall. Great job guys and keep up the hard work.

Worth the small price for this game

I played a demo of this game in the store, and bought it as soon as I got back home. This is one of those games that is unlike the rest, and it stands out as something thought provoking, creative, and very fun to play. If you like to solve puzzles, it really doesn't get much better. It also goes without saying, but the graphics and gameplay are exquisite, once you get the hang of it. Do yourself a favor and buy this game.
