Played it through from beginning to end. The puzzles are sublime.

I especially liked the tricky ones where you have to build the level yourself! Seriously brain-bending. I couldn't figure out "Lesson" while looking at it but I sat up in the middle of the night and shouted "AHA!" much to my wife's chagrin.

Looking forward to the next one from this developer.

Ignore the name. The name has nothing to do with anything about the game.

This is a pure puzzle game. One part 3D sokoban, one part Koenigsburg bridges, and about fifteen parts of evil genius. It's a game of discovery, where you may not know exactly what you need to do.

Either you're looking at this description and wondering why anyone would want this, or you're salivating at the prospect. If you're in the first group, go buy a different game. Life is too short to play games that aren't up your alley. I won't judge. There's a lot of popular games out there that aren't my speed.

If you're in the second group, you should have already played this game. But if you haven't, buy it now.

3D Sokoban with complex rules. There aren't very many types of blocks to get used to, but the rules governing each of them are surprisingly deep, and even at the beginning of the game, you really have to understand all of the subtle rules thoroughly in order to plan ahead and complete each level. For example, the "larva" blocks are pushed around when you run into them. But gravity applies to them selectively, and you absolutely must understand how gravity works in order to get them to fall into the right positions.

Because of the complex rules, you need to plan ahead - guessing rarely gets you to the correct solution. And as a result, completing a hard level, at least to me, gives a Dark Souls-like satisfaction. You *earn* your victories!

Some of the other reviewers don't like the minimalist, abstract music and art, but I think they're beautiful. You can see for yourself what it looks like form the screenshots and videos and decide if the art is up your alley or not.

English Country Tune es el primer (y único, hasta la fecha y hasta mi conocimiento) juego comercial de Steven Lavelle aka "Increpare".

El juego consiste en moverse en un espacio 3D completando desafíos pequeños similares (en cierta forma) al clásico Sokoban.

Es un juego simple, sin historia ni música épica. Está puramente para el disfrute de poder lograr terminarlo y para sentarse unas horas y pensar cada puzzle.

Al cabo de unas horas jugadas se notan un par de patrones que restan un poco la originalidad de cada solución, pero se mantiene híper disfrutable para los amantes de los puzzles.

¿Es recomendable?

Sí, sin dudas si te gustan los puzzles es una masa. Gran parte de los puzzles se resumen en despiezar la forma en un plano (similar a un papercraft) para poder analizar el movimiento que hay que hacer. El tiempo da todas las soluciones, pero querer pasarlo en una sola sentada puede resultar frustrante (bueno, como casi cualquier otro puzzler).

A challenging 3D puzzler. Very first impression is "Oh, this is just sokoban", and then it starts ramping up newer and newer concepts on you throughout the whole game,

A downside is that if you get stuck on a puzzle, you don't have many options to simply play around that puzzle - you HAVE to solve it in order to progress, even if that means looking up the solution. A case could be made that if you don't master the concept in an earlier puzzle, it will bite you in the ♥♥♥ in a later puzzle anyway, but I'm not sure that is always true.

If this sounds like your type of game, the amount of content makes it worth the full $5 pricetag. Otherwise, move on.

I've had my eye on this game for more than a year and I'm so glad I didn't miss it this sale around! If you like puzzles and challenging your brain, I definitely recommend it. The soundtrack is quiet and soothing, and it's a nice game if you want to wind down for an hour or so at a time...or if you just want to switch it up from shooting, running, jumping, hacking and slashing. As far as the length of the game, I'm not even halfway through it, but I am a slow puzzler. That said, I think it's definitely worth the 4.99$ purchase price and, if you get it at 90% off during a sale like I did, you will have no complaints! I mean, ok... you might, but that's probably just because you're prone to complaining in general.

i'm a big fan of games where simple rules make the game really fun. this is one of those games. i think good puzzle games also make you feel smart by the end of each level, and this is one of those. unfortunately, it gets super hard by the end, so i just sort of half-assedly try every one in a while and then say, "yeah, i still don't know how to do this," and give up. but until that moment, it's a good game lol

Well this is an interesting take on the puzzle genre. Rather than sticking with a single set of mechanics and making loads of puzzles off of them, this one goes the opposite route of having lots of related mechanics and making a small number of puzzles off of each one. It doesn't work quite as well as the first approach - for example, I'd put Puzzle Dimension over this one - an it does have that odd moment of not being sure what to do next because you don't fully understand a mechanic, but it's still quite a fun game nonetheless. I'd certainly recommend it!

(1) Every level is NP Complete. That is to say, every level will take you exponential time to solve.
(2) The level editor is also a level.

Puzzle game for serious puzzlers. I don't currently love this game because there is a lot of spacial and 3D challenges going on, and I've always had a problem solving 3D puzzles. This does not make it a bad game, it's just difficult for those of us with problems like that--but good for stretching your brain???

Don't get fooled by the 2-D slow start, the game gets much more complex and satisfying once the gameplay mechanisms are introduced and the 3-D puzzles come into play. As a lover of puzzle games in general, this game was a solid pleasure to explore and beat. Highly recommended.

This is a rather unusual puzzle which will wrap your brain in a knot at times - but the solutions are always there, there's usually something guiding you towards them, you just need to find that thing!!

There are a couple of puzzles which are frustrating and the game doesn't give you much latitude for progress (you need to complete most of the puzzles to continue) but overall I found it challenging and thus I recommend it!

Steam Roulette forced me to play this game and boy was I surpriced! This game is one of the more amazing puzzle games I've ever played. The concepts are brilliant and varied and the level design are astounding! The graphics are not adavanced but every detail is executed well.

The game is quite dfficult and when you beat some levels you feel really, really smart for doing so.

Get this game if you in any way shape or form like puzzle games or want to challange your spatial thinking!

Creias haber pasado con facilidad todos los juegos puzzles?
Creias que que no existia nada que desafiara totalmente tus habilidades mentales?

Pues dejame decirte que estas equivocado! English Country Tune es un juego indie puzzle bastante sencillo (visualmente) con una gran variedad de niveles y dificultades. Claro esta que si digo que sea sencillo visualmente no quiere decir que sea un juego facil de desarrollar o pasar, sino que simplemente somos un cubito que debera ir moviendo pelotitas y cada una tiene que ir llegando a un punto en particular. Hay mucha variedad de niveles y la dificultad en alguno de ellos es bastante alta.
Sin duda es un juego que recomiendo totalmente para poner a prueba tus habilidades en este tipo de juegos.

Desafiante y entretenido!

The short version: this is an insane game for insane people, and I loved nearly every moment of it.

The long version: this starts as, basically, Sokoban, but quickly reveals itself as much more than that: the spheres (or "larvae") you push "simulate gravity as camouflage" i.e. fall in the direction dependant on how they wre pushed. The difficulty past the first five or six levels skyrockets, and the game keeps piling up new mechanics on you until almost the very end. It requires excellent spatial awareness, but the feeling of satisfaction after cracking a particularly fiendish puzzle is unparalleled. The levels are ordered in semi-nonlinear fashion, but there are several "chokepoints" that may block you from further progress for hours as you despair for a solution.

The presentation is very simplistic (as you van see from the screenshots), but clear and legible. The sound and music are, fittingly, ascetic, with ambient humming and chanting.

You will get stuck. More than once. And you'll love it.

I am recommending this game, but it is important to note that this is not a universal recommendation.

This is a puzzle collection, and honestly a pretty good one - there's a wide variety of puzzle "types," but some of them are VERY difficult. Expect to be challenged, and do NOT expect to sit down and crank through a bunch of these in a single sitting. For folks who are not looking for difficult, abstract, mind-bendy 3D puzzles? Definitely not the place to look.

That being said, I had a good time with it for the most part. Some of them were just plain old DAMN hard, but when I felt like I had some degree of comprehension of what was needed, it was a good type of challenging.

In all honsety, I'm putting this game up there with the expert mode of super monkey ball. It's just insanse. It does share the tools that made smb great though, you can instantly restart a level with the press of the button, when you fail, and failing will come often here, you also get the turn back by one move feature, which is great for experimenting when your not sure , powering through with trial and error, or salvaging a run on one of the later puzzles. Together these make the game bearable.

You play as a square which flips from space to space, but it throws new things at you constantly. One of the most notable, is that gravity is determined in the direction that you move, and only for things you come into contact with, which is one of the hardest conceptual challenges I've faced in a long time. You'll have to deal with the cube based nature of the game on another level when you are asked to "cut' specific shapes into your square, using a raised platform to flip right, on top of it, and back down to present a different face to be cut.

Gameplay is pretty varied, and the game is semi non linear, as the unlocking process branches out early in the game, giving you some things to come back to if you are stomped to hard. For example, you can choose to work on whale after beating larva, or go straight to advanced larva, and later you can choose (freely, you get them all at once)between planting, half sided, and Larva+Whale, and planting itself leads to a further choice of advanced planting and garden.

Every new level brings something new to the table, and every one of the advanced levels turned out to not just be a "more of the same but super long now" but to creatively ask you to do something different. Also intereactions between the gravity ball from larva and the whale thing... turn out to be absoultely insanse.

This game is pretty much the benchmark for undiscovered gems for anyone who loves playing puzzles. It is almost entirely clever, and has an unusually amount of content for this genre of game. The time saving features make it seem fair. It does have a few sour spots... a handful of levels literally cannot be done in less than 7+ minutes, ramping up already crazy difficulty on an artificial level. They are very rare and unlikely to be encountered by anyone less than 15 hours in, or 9 if you have a ♥♥♥♥ ton of experience.

This game will be in your libraray for an insanely long time if you have the will to beat it. The graphics... grow on you after a while. While you are in some kind of geometrical nighmare puzzle world, the background is like a petri dish under a microscope with cell things just floating around or idling in place, and the level selection just looks amazing, although it is a bit unwieldy.

If you think you have become the god of all things puzzle;that you will never be beyond a weekend stand to learn the mechanics of some new gimmick game and master it : then English Country Tune will be your final trial before you can ascend to a higher plane. And it might just put you in your place.

Puzzle lover heaven \:D/ You flip around a square on 3D platforms and push things. A bit trickier thant it sounds actually. Although the main world selection it would be nice to see which worlds you have already completed or not. But other than that and the rather odd title (English Country Tune? Any ideas for why it's called that?) definitely a must buy.

English Country Tune, an inexplicably-named geometrical, abstract puzzle game. First of all, the soundtrack isn't English or Country... though it is a tune (albeit not an amazing one). And while this review may have started negatively, my opinion of English Country Tune is anything but. Simply because it is a very good puzzle game and that it's everything it's aspiring to be. The puzzles are based on those movement or arranging puzzles where you have to move certain objects to certain locations (some further research lead me to a style of puzzle called Sokoban).

Overall, the game has the feel of an end of degree, final project except for one difference. The gameplay and level design is actually well-refined with a lot of thought and time going into each level. The harder puzzles have only one solution with only an undo button and reset button to help you through (or help you backtrack). The graphics are rudimentary and there is no initial instruction in the menu screen. It took me a while to work out how to access the puzzles. And while the graphics are basic, they are perfect for this game.

This is a good puzzle game. But my biggest gripes are the frustrating camera angles, and the unintuitive level select menu. Better complete each world in one go, because if you skip some puzzles you're gonna have a frustrating time finding them later on with this awful menu.
Some of the hardest puzzles of the game also happen to be in some of the earliest worlds in the game, while a lot of the later worlds are a breeze. I also don't like the levels that make you build the puzzle yourself. Overall though, this is a good game and I enjoyed it. Give it a go if you like these sorts of games.

The puzzles in this game are incredibly well-crafted and difficult. It's like sokoban but in 3D space where gravity is relative per object and can change and also there are blocks that you can push from across the level and also sometimes you can put holes in yourself and aaaaaaaaaaaaaa

If you like hurting your brain this game is for you.

This is a very hard 3D puzzle game with wildly varying mechanics built in the unity engine. There are balls that fall differently depending on where you hit them (their gravity changes), boxes that only move when you push the light that beams from all sides, and those step on all the blocks puzzles. One world consists of levels that require you to actually build the level until it is covered in immobile, impassible cubes that result from your every other step, and that's where I gave up. There is no story; it is just a bunch of gated puzzles. Also, don't expect any great soundtrack, despite the name, because it's all ambient music. That being said, if you want a ton of challenging logic puzzles, this is the game for you.
