I like puzzle games. I really do.
And this is a nice puzzle game, for the most part.

It has a soothing atmosphere. The minimalistic looks is good. The puzzles are simple, yet complex.
Really, it seems like everything is done right?

Well. Not exactly.
This game is really repetitive. It introduces a block you have to pass mutliple times in the early stages and... that's it. Some games manage to keep things interesting, even with few mechanics, but I don't think I really works here. With the great number of level, it just feels really "diluded".

Choose one color. Make short part. Fill has much has you can with other colors. Make slight ajustements. Worked for 80% stages. I'm not trying to brag, in fact, I'm a probably few cards short of a deck, but this not a challenging game. It's long and tedious, but not challenging.

But that's not my biggest problem with this game.
If you're paying attention, you'll notice that many stages look similar. In fact, some levels are exactly the same, but upside down. This is almost insulting.

Or it would be, but this is only a 3$ game. There's only so much I could expect. It might not have blown my mind. It might not be a great game. It might not deserve a "Overwhelmingly Positive". Yet, I don't exactly regret buying it.


If you're looking for simple puzzles to solve and relax a bit, I suppose you could buy worst.

I really have to agree with some of the other fans of Lyne here. This game should NOT be bought for the sole purpose of cheatcoding through to all of the Steam achievements. It is truly worth one's time to actually DO the puzzles! ^_^ On a sidenote, I would love to see data on the positive effects of this game on the brain.

As someone who suffers from severe OCD and anxiety, Lyne has definitely provided me with an outlet for nervous energy--and a means of testing and controlling my compulsions! It can be so very difficult to NOT complete a level once I get started, so it can take a lot of willpower to leave one unfinished! It may just be anecdotal, but Lyne has increased my everyday focus, memory, and overall well-being!

o Lots Of Fun!
o Some Replayablity (That's If You Leave It A While And Come Back, You May Forgot Some Of The Puzzles)
o Calming Artstyle

CONS:

o Difficult...Sometimes Too Difficult

A pattern-sequence-like game. I reccommend this game because there are both super easy and super hard levels and the sheer amount of hours that you can get from this game is well worth the money!

I thought it was pretty relaxing and a little bit challenging puzzle game for 15h gameplay. Then spent my whole 45 minutes trying to find the right variation for T-13 , i didnt even think that much about my future.
Would do it again 10/10

LYNE is a simple but challenging puzzle game, it starts VERY simple but it keeps going harder and harder.
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.

This is a pretty good game, it is simple, you get achievements(which keep me awake sometimes), some nice and relaxing sounds and the puzzles are well made: some of them f@cked up my mind pretty bad and some others(while advancing) rebuilded my brain back to 1 piece or at least I think so.
I give it a 9/10 because I'm really not into puzzle games, but this little game gave me joy and that's that 9 for(it could have been a 10, but I'm a ♥♥♥♥♥♥)
