"Triangle ... Triangle ... Triangle"
5/5 - Touch Arcade
YANKAI'S TRIANGLE is a love letter to TRIANGLES. A puzzling puzzle game about the beauty and joy of infinitely tapping on TRIANGLES for some reason.
With an elegant innovative revolutionary TRIANGLE-first approach to interface, YANKAI'S TRIANGLE lets you tap on TRIANGLES to spin them and stuff. Colors play a part in gameplay too I think. Bring TRIANGLES to a forgotten TRIANGLE, and uncover a TRIANGLE hidden deep beneath the YANKAI.
• Pretty Fun Gameplay (it's all right)
• No Filler - A Veritable Infinity of Meticulously Definitely Handcrafted TRIANGLES
• Over 1.74 x 10^26 Possible Levels (all definitely handcrafted)
• An Inscrutable Three-Pronged Scoring System
• A 'Happy Sounds' Option (woohoo!)
• A 'Colorblind' Option if You Are Colorblind (it's not great tbh)
• A Cool Film Grain Effect (some people don't like it but i think it's cool)
• A Cool Tiled TRIANGLE Background Effect
• Also there are Leaderboards
• And some Achievements

What's New in Version 3.9.27
Various bug fixes
The most oddly creepy game I've ever had
When I downloaded this game I honestly was not expecting much. I just thought it was going to be one of the same run of the mill puzzle games you come across frequently on the App Store, but this one is surprisingly quite different. For the main body of the game it's an easy to pick up puzzle game revolving around matching the colors on triangles until you can form every triangle on the level into one. As you go on the game introduces new aspects, like locking triangles, triangles that move in sync, and triangles with multiple segments on each side. While the actual game play is challenging and quite addictive, it's not exactly... unlike other puzzles. It is unique, but the general concept of color matching isn't unheard of. What sets this game apart is the most oddly eerie atmosphere the game creates. The ambiance, the sound effects, the visuals, everything in this seemingly simple puzzler makes it incredibly creepy. While not necessarily scary, it did manage to actually make me jump when a voice began whispering things ( I had been playing it from level 1 all the way to 50 so the sudden addition was honestly pretty startling) I rate this puzzler a 5/5 for it's absolutely amazing presentation and I would certainly recommend to anyone who has a care for puzzle games. Even if you are not a puzzle fan, I would recommend you give this game a shot before passing it up.
Visually painful to use
This app's concept seems like it could have been a lot of fun to play… unfortunately I'll never know for sure because it's visually one of the worst apps I've ever used.
There are plenty of amateurish apps, especially games on the App Store in terms of interface and user experience design and this is certainly one of them. But a fun game concept can shine through a poor presentation. What sets this app apart is the jarring and nonsensical use of a constant noise filter over the entire screen. That, combined with the loud, flat colors and lack of any real user interface to speak of besides a few numbers set in an ugly serif typeface, gave me a headache almost immediately. I played a few levels in about thirty seconds and then exited the app.
I'm very glad this was the free App of the Week when I downloaded it. In its current state, it's a waste of money otherwise. If the developer were to give it a lot more visual polish I think it could be very fun and even become a popular game.
This game is art
This is one of the most mesmerizing and atmospheric puzzle games I've ever played. It does so much with so little: the auditory landscapes, the level transitions, the visual style—they all give an eerie glimpse into a world that you feel like you cannot understand. The gameplay is simple to catch on to, but surprisingly deep. I found myself constantly surprised with how far the designers pushed such a simple mechanic. This is the game I've been looking for, a rare gem that throws back to the early days of the app store when creative developers could make simple games with love and attention to detail, games like tiny wings, super hexagon, and async corp. Thanks for this.
