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 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.

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.

Incredibly tightly designed puzzle game with a bunch of ideas & mechanics thrown together - dashes of all the classic block moving, tile sliding puzzle mechanics, but with a 3D view (kinda) that makes the most of the fact it's a computer game. I like.

I've read overwhelming praise of this game but I've played through a few levels and it's really not doing it for me. It's confusing and not very satisfying.

Get this if you want a relaxing puzzle game and don't mind it being rather hard.
It's also cheap so nothing to lose really.

A true puzzle game, and if it seems simple as you start it, don't worry. It will keep throwing stuff at you until you get to levels that keep you scratching your head for days. Get it!

Designing a good puzzle game is difficult. In too many entries in this genre, you will get either a very limited set of rule that does not allow for creative puzzles or so many new rules along the way that none feel properly explored in their puzzle design potential. You will often get totally trivial levels at first that rapidly evolve into extraordinarily difficult puzzles or extraordinarily tedious ones. The brilliance of Increpare's English Country Tune is that it finds almost the perfect balance and avoid all of these pitfalls to offer constant challenge and clever use of its mechanisms.

This is not the most welcoming game and some of the fundamental rules are a tad tricky to assimilate, but it is an extremely rewarding game packed full with superb level design.

I just discovered this game. But I'm familiar with the creator, Increpare, who is known for making awfuly complex and mindbending web games at increpare.com. His games tend to lack guidance or anything that would tell you how to play them or what the objective is at all. But don't be fooled, these are bonafide games with well defined mechanics and objectives, as obtuse as they might appear to be.

This game is both more ambitious and somewhat kind of a let down in the sense that I was dissapointed when I saw the first "tutorial" question mark in the game. I really hoped to see zero instructions and be completelly baffled not knowing what to do for the first 15 minutes. In addition to this, compared to most of his other games, ECT is actually more simple. I would have probaby figured out the mechanics rather quickly without any kind of help anyway. But I'm not being kind by comparing this game to his more experimental and way less accessible creations.

All in all, this is still a very good puzzle game. One of the best around.

I'll probably ammend this review once I have played it for a few more hours.
