Great puzzle game! This is well worth the price, especially bc it has three daily puzzles and 26 sets of 25 puzzles each. This has TONS of content for your puzzling pleasure!

As marvelous as simple -- and by simple I mean the handling, not the solution of the puzzles.
And beyond the stock sets it seem to generate dailies to keep your mind fresh.

If you like this kind of path-finding puzzles it's a no-brainer to have.

Three hours in and I already add the game to my favorites. Bought it during the Summer Sale 2016 for under one Euro and boy, is that some money well spend. My mind is spinning from solving a hundred puzzles or so in three hours. I wanted to go to sleep like two hours ago. If there will be a game runining my sleep cycle, it might actually be this one.

10/10 would puzzle into insanity again.

Fantastic, fun unique, and challenging puzzles from an indie developer I had never even heard of, I would highly reccomend it. I'd honestly pay £20 for this, instead of the £2 that I did pay. Takes almost no GPU or CPU power to run, or hardly any RAM. Gameplay is fun, fast and fluid and I've never ran into a problem with it. If you've agot a bit of money lying around on your desk; Get it.

Don't mind my negative review, that's only my opinion, and I would perfectly understand that other people would precisely recommend it for what I didn't enjoy myself.

The main reason why I couldn't recommend LYNE, is because I bought it at full price, and would have expected a bit more variety in its gameplay. Apart from the multi-nodes, it's always the same idea, and there's no new mechanic involved further on.

Sure, there's a lot of hand-crafted levels, which is usually a good point in puzzle games, but for LYNE, it felt like it was a bit too much. It seems like you're always trying to solve the same level over and over on the long run, and I even noticed some of them being exactly the same, except rotated in a different manner.

Now, I'm not saying LYNE isn't worth it. If you're just looking for a puzzle game to kill some time, without being afraid of the "assembly-line work" feeling of it, then just go ! The minimalistic art style is fantastic, and you can even chose your colour palette, which I appreciated a lot.

If I was to be honnest, I don't think that game is that interesting on a computer, you might prefer playing LYNE on your phone/tablet whenever you feel like it.

If you expect diversity, this might not be for you, but it remains a nice little puzzler overall !

LYNE is a very casual puzzle game where you connect shapes and lines in order to progress through the game. I would have liked to see an option where you can make the game window much smaller, so you could play while watching a stream etc.

Pros:
- Very long game
- Smooth game play

Cons:
- Some levels are a bit too hard

A minimalistic puzzler with a simple concept but ramps up the difficulty as you progress. A great time-consumer and the large-scale layout can easily be played on the TV screen from a distance, making it extra relaxing due to the sofa factor.
