Customer Reviews

Been playing for years

Insta-bought the original after playing it at PAX many years ago. Had no idea this new edition existed until a few days ago! This game is pure distilled action puzzle loveliness. It sounds cliche, but you get into a flow state with this game and come out of many rounds totally exhilarated. Highest recommendation!

Simply Complex

This game is so strangely addictive. The more you learn it the better you want to get at it, the better you want to get the deeper the game becomes. Keep it up Developers!


matching puzzler that is both simple and complex. It’s highly polished in every way and completely addictive. Highly recommended.
