Tietoja pelistä

Splice is an experimental and artistic puzzler. Immerse yourself in its microbial world and start splicing! Every level ("strand") consists of a number of cells that you will need to rearrange into a target structure in several moves ("splices"). Exploration and experimentation are key in determining how the curious little cells react to each other. Predict the sequence of splices you'll have to make in order to successfully arrange each strand. Re-sequence, mutate, and splice your way through this unique puzzle experience, and you'll exercise your ability to visualize sequential series of shapes over time. Solve your way to the final strands and you'll be left with a heady sense of mental accomplishment!

Splice is the fourth title out of Cipher Prime Studios, and was the Best Puzzle Game winner of the 2011 Intel Level Up contest.

Key Features:

  • 75+ Puzzles: The main sequences introduce the player to the game's basic mechanics and the epilogue sequences challenge the player's mastery of the game.
  • Angelic Solutions: Every level is solved in a few moves. Challenge yourself and find the angelic solutions of puzzles by completing puzzles in fewer splices than you're given. Novice players can still progress through the game by using all splices.
  • Unique Geometry: Explore the structure of a binary tree in radial space.
  • Absorbing Soundscape: Put your headphones on and lose yourself in Splice's hauntingly beautiful and Glass-ian piano music.
  • Compelling Colors: Massage your retinas with the soothing visual effects and ambience of this primordial puzzle environment.

Splice is a strange puzzle game. No instructions are given, so you're left to discover the mechanics on your own, and it feels like a great decision. I can't really tell you why I like this game as much as I do. This game presented something that few other games have for me: a few hours of losing myself in a seemingly simple task that is devilishly complex underneath it all, and loving every minute of it

Overall, an enjoyable puzzle game. The graphics and overall visual style make it fun to interact with the puzzles and are just visually pleasing to watch. The way the mechanics are slowly introduced prevent it from being too frustrating.

What makes the puzzles especially engaging is how it plays as they become more complex. In some puzzle games, it just becomes an invitation to "brute force" a solution, which is not very fun and tends to be frustratingly boring. In this game, however, the puzzles each seem to have several "insights" that you can discover as you play around, which you can then use to develop a solution. The rewind mechanic makes this discovery process much easier and more pleasant - for example, if you find all of your splices used up but your result is really close to the end goal, you can rewind and keep trying different things to try to "fix" your splices until you get the answer. You can also take the approach of trying to discover useful properties about each puzzle as you experiment with different splices and exploit those properties to devise a solution.

So, not only are there multiple solutions - there's multiple, challenging and rewarding strategies you can take to discover those solutions without using brute force.

One downside is that the music seems to have only one track and is too short and played too often, however, which gets a bit annoying after awhile.

And despite beating the main game in 4 hours, I'm sure you can get a lot of additional play time out of the bonus levels (the "epilogue").

An interesting little game with a very nice, if somewhat repetitive soundtrack.

There is nothing in the way of a tutorial, but the game does a pretty good job of introducing you to new concepts so it doesn't get confusing. It doesn't waste time with context or even a bare-bones story- just a pack of puzzles with some fun mechanics. It's short but remains challenging throughout. However, there's no real reason to revisit old puzzles once solved, so replayability is very limited.

For what is is, I can't recommend paying full price for this, but if you can get it for under five dollars it's a few hours worth of enjoyment if you like puzzle games.

Splice is a puzzle game in which you reposition cells in order to line up with an outline and create a biochemical strand. Cells are constrained by various rules and special cells such as those which duplicate or delete themselves, and it's in thinking around these that the puzzles are formed. There is a lot of playing with perspectives and intentionally attempting to overwhelm the player to mask a simple solution, which fluctuates between satisfying challenging and infuriating, with little middle ground and wild inconsistency.

Ultimately Splice's saving grace is also its downfall, and the same as virtually every game by developer Cypher Prime I've yet played, as they opt for a significant amount of style to make up for a lack in substance. The presentation is immensely cinematic, making great use of shifting planes and colors as you move from level to level, all complimented by an absolutely gorgeous piano score. It's a beautifully artistic game, but unfortunately I never found the puzzles remotely as well constructed. On the contrary, by the end I was fuming over some of the more difficult ones, and was more than happy when I was finally finished. Much of Splice's design seems dependent on confusing the player, but after a point this becomes immensely frustrating, almost as if the developers are just seeing how far they can push you without any hints or direction before you finally crack and quit the game.

My feeling on Splice are very...convoluted. The presentation is remarkable, yet the gameplay noticeably lacking. The entire time I spent with it my feelings were a mixture of awe and anger, kept only in line by a few simpler puzzles and a handy guide. I can't fully recommend it, nor can I entirely reject it, so my suggestion would be to check out the demo and see if maybe it clicks for you. If nothing else you'll get to appreciate a bit of the excellent audio and visuals, which rise so far above everything else.

Rearrange a chain of cells to match a specified pattern in a limited number of moves. Sometimes you'll have to activate special cells like splitters or deleters, but you can only activate them from the center of the chain outward, so you'll have to think ahead.

It's a very short game, but pleasantly frustrating while it lasts. For a puzzle game, it's got wonderful music and graphics, and accomplishes a very memorable atmosphere. Difficulty can get steep; beating all the levels is easy, but to get the last achievement you'll have to find alternate solutions to some of the puzzles which don't use all the available moves. Try doing it without looking up the answers for more of hardcore puzzle experience.

Don't recommend buying at full price, but if you're a puzzle fan and you can get it on sale, or if you're an achievement hunter and you got this in a bundle somewhere along the line, don't pass it up.

Splice is a pretty interesting puzzle game, in which you modify several strains of cells in order to solve the puzzle by forming the target strain. It has a very relaxing soundtrack, and the puzzles themselves are quite challenging; in some cases, they may be a little frustrating even. There were times I found the solution by pure luck, and other times in which I stared at it for minutes without knowing how to solve it.

It's still a good game, in my opinion, so I can recommend it.

I think the world needs more biology based games. Sure this game isn't scientifically accurate or educational, but just the aesthetics of the world sucked me in and wouldn't let me go.

Splice is a relatively short game depending on how natural spatial puzzle solving comes to you, but I felt like it was a perfect length for a game with such a narrow focus mechanically. Solving the Angelic Strands (completing a level with an extra move remaining) was fun and rewarding. The soundtrack is very relaxing and puts you into an almost zen state as you splice and manipulate cells.

Overall I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this game and I hope to see some more cellular biology themed games down the road.

A fascinating puzzle game, with a unique strategy behind it. Impressive graphics, but it grinds all of the platforms I have (android, laptop, and even my dedicated gaming tower) to a halt. I enjoyed the challenge of the game, and have beaten it on a phone, but the replay value is practically nil. If it were still a thing, I'd say rent it. As it stands, pass this one over if there's something else you're interested in.

Fantastic music is about the only good thing I can say about this game. It has no tutorial which leaves you trying to figure out how the game works which is more difficult then actually solving the puzzles themselves.

It is too expensive and boring. Don't waste your time with this.

Honestly I got this in a humble bundle pack. If you like puzzles and its on sale or in the humble bundle maybe... Or you want to 100% beat an easy game (all steam achievements) in a very short time. But otherwise, no.
