Perfect for that casual puzzle fix, but lacks significant staying power

+ Puzzles are intuitive in a way that requires no tutorial or hand-holding; mechanics are fully understood in perhaps 2 minutes or less
+ Initial advancement feels rewarding in a simplistic, fulfilling manner
+ Sound effects assigned to moving the puzzle along are enjoyable, and string together in a pleasingly melodic fashion
+ Puzzles of each set build consistently in difficulty, keeping one solidly hooked every step of the way
+ Daunting quantity of puzzles to run through
+ Daily puzzles that offer one an occasion to return
+ Unlockable palettes that serve to mix up the stale colors a bit

- Novelty eventually gives way to tedium if trying to blitz through much at once; save for puzzle fanatics, this game may be best in smaller bites, as it quickly stops introducing new mechanics

Once upon a time, there were three friends who were called Diamond, Square and Triangle. They lived in their palette world filled with multicells, quite contempt but lonely. One day they discovered they had identical partners who wanted to meet them. The three friends ran across to join them, but never against one another because of their trusted bonds of friendship. They decided to dance working together in unison via a melodic vec-flow pattern to illustrate their happiness. Unbeknownst to them, they were simply puppets to a 'Hacker' trying to solve the alphabetic password to access the 'LYNE’ files.

A visually pleasing simplistic puzzle game that rewards you with achievements that you can use to spell things out on your profile with! Although puzzles may seem easy at first, the truth is it really gets challenging once you progress further into the game. Yes difficulty is debatable but it really was quite challenging in my opinion! If you find yourself stuck on a puzzle, the community has generously created a cheat sheet that will allow you to finish the game in no time! Haha, but try to play the game without any "Guides" first, then once you start flippin out over a specific stage, cheat away! Overall an enjoyable, calming (most of the time), beautiful game.
