Besides the achievements, (which is pretty much the reason everyone bought this game) this is a really fun, challenging, and calm game. Pretty good. Get it! (also for the achievements ^v^)

Other than having letters to showcase my name on my profile, it is a great time killer that does get pretty challenging (just takes more time). Probably get it when it's on sale, fun.

A beautifully engineered game, built to test the minds ability to trial and error and to look at multiple angles for a given solution. I find myself pondering how similar it is to real life, as we are faced with a problem and have this giant picture layed out in front of us; not knowing what path to take we try different methods until we find one that works. Eventually you get good enough to be able to see patterns, learn pathing, and diagnose a situation for perfect completion. Thank you for such a simple, yet complex game.

As a mega nerd, I am of the ilk that enjoys math. So sue me. This game is an awesome puzzling experience.I find the noises that the shapes make as you connect them to be kind of annoying, but overall I like this game a lot.

A fine game you can play when you need something to do. It's a puzzle game that requires you to connect all shapes together. However, there are different kinds of colors/shapes and two different colors/shapes can't connect to eachother. Your task is to solve the puzzle without leaving any shape unconnected.

Positive view:
✔ If you want time to go, this is a game that can help you.
✔ Good amout of levels.
✔ Daily new puzzles.
✔ Nice and simple art.
✔ Nice and simple created puzzles, but they still require you to think.
✔ Good training for your brain
✔ Yet, it's still a quite relaxing game. (Except when you get to a puzzle that's hard as f*ck. Then the relaxing part is gone.)
✔ You can change the theme. (Choose what color theme you want.)

Negative view:
✘ Some of the puzzle levels repeat. (I only noticed this later in the game, but it could as well be the same in the early game too.)

This game is perfect. Its execution is flawless. If you like puzzle games, this is a must-have.
The letter achievements also compliment my profile pretty well.

Playtime and Time/money
This game is actually quite fun, and is great to just toy around with for a few hours at a time, most of my playtime consists with the android version of it, but I have it on steam because I got it through the humble bundle and I am planning on playing just to unlock the achievements to spell out my name on my profile, all in all it's a great game with hours of enjoyment, I don't have an actual rate per hour because most of my time went unrecorded. but you can trust me when I say hours. I mean or you'd just be disregarding my entire review, which is fine too.

Exactly what is this game?
Puzzle game, you draw lines, you learn the patterns you play challenges and you just unlock new themes, there are hundreds of levels and probably thousands because of the daily challenges which are selected from a pool of a... lot.
The dimensions of this game involve drawing lines through points that require up to 4 entries in order to be activated and moving 3 different lines through every point on the board to the other side.
It is a lot more difficult than one might think at first and has an amazingly good learning curve, like it felt like I was naturally moving through the game at a very nice pace, and I was learning the best ways to complete puzzles, which do have multiple answers.

So now the standard game rating:
  • Story: 0/10 (Simply put there is none, but it's a puzzle game, not every one is equipped with a cheesy story to go along with why you're figuring out puzzles.)
  • Gameplay: 10/10 + 📱 (addictive, smooth, aesthetic, and highly mobile are ways to describe it, I would suggest getting this on a phone though.)
  • Presentation: 10/10 (A minimalist design with a changing theme, and it's always smooth, the game just looks and feels great.)
  • Soundtrack: 7/10 (by no means is it a bad sound to the game, however there is no soundtrack and you get a hovering highlight sound everytime you connect a line, but thats all, it's still very smooth and relaxing though and it doesn't get annoying.)
  • Replayability: 10/10
    (Perfect on the go puzzle game.)

My grandma always disliked how I spend most of my time playing video games. After I introduced her to LYNE, I never get to use my PC as my grandma is always trying to grind the first few levels. Thanks Thomas Bowker!

Lyne - a puzzle game very interesting, though a bit monotonous gameplay, Connecting identical tiles in a continuous sequence.
The main feature of this game, for which it is likely buys Most of this achievement in the form of letters, with which you can decorate your profile in Steam by writing your name or nickname, for example. As for the cards, they are expensive here, even if you buy the game without the discount is 3 cards for almost half the game cover. I put the 26 letters of the 26

LYNE - игра логическая, весьма интересная, геймплей правда немного однообразный, соединяешь одинаковые фишки в одну непрерывную последовательность.
Главной чертой этой игры, за что её скорее всего и покупает большенство это достижения в виде букв, с помощью которых можно будет украсить свой профиль в стиме, написав свойимя или никнейм, к примеру. Что касается карточек, они тут дорогие, даже если покупать игры без скидки то 3 карточки уже почти на половину покрывают игру. Ставлю 26 букв из 26

LYNE is a simple but challenging puzzle game, it starts VERY simple but it keeps going harder and harder *sex joke incoming*

The design and sounds are simple but beautiful, if you want a good puzzle game or simply kill time, then you do certainly nothing wrong with this game, after beating the game you still can keep playing daily challenges to keep the fun on rail. (bad thing on daily is they are not very challenging)

For sure the money worth, and hey its not much money... now BUY IT finally.

A relaxing, ambient, puzzle game that you can revist for seemly infinite puzzles via randomly generated daily sets. The difficulty, from the start of a new set, varies from easy -> moderate -> complex towards the end of set, but there's nothing you cannot solve eventually. I found that if a particular one was giving me trouble, I could return to it later refreshed and figure it out with little issue (there is no hint system). I purchased this on sale for 0.89 cents, but I'd wager it's worth the full price if you want a little brain-teaser to play on the side.

Oh, and the achievement icons are great for spelling out silly things on your profile. :V

When it started it was innocent enough, just a few puzles ,but once it hit E, It got real. I made it through first and with some ease, Sad to say for my pal ,He didn't quite make it( Rip Kirby 2K16). The hours and days I spent started to wear my sanity down. I slowly began seeing Lyne ( I pronouce it like Lin , with a silent E ,but I am told I am wrong) Everywhere I saw the game, when I closed my eyes it came up, When i tried to look in the sun to make it go away, It came back stronger. I Tried sleeping it off ,taking a short break ,but that made it even worse. I bought It wanting to spell out my name, but ended up almost forgetting how to in the process. My pal has yet to make it through E 24, But I hope for the best. Once you buy and play this game till it talks about stabilty you realize.....Are you really stable? OR ARE YOU A PIECE OF TRASH THAT MAKES YOU GO INSANE AND WANT TO JUMP IN A WELL AND AVOID ALL SOICAL CONTACT UNTIL YOU CAN BEAT A PUZZLE GAME.
