Definitely i recommend this game if you love the puzzles like me. :)

If there's a simple yet challenging puzzle game, it's Ichi. The gameplay only revolves around rotating 'bumpers', so you can collect all items in a level (the objective). If you can rotate just enough, you'll earn better scores. A being the best and you can achieve every level with allotted rotations. There are sixty basic levels included in the game.

The game also supports workshop, so you can download user made levels for more challenges. The workshop has no regulation, though, so you can literally upload broken levels and/or spam.

Note about buying price: The game's been on bundle multiple times already. According to Enhanced Steam it's been 9 times, so there are bound to be keys floating around for cheap. Check Steamtrades.

All in all, recommended little puzzle game. 7.5/10

Rather unsatisfying, simplistic little puzzler.

About 2 hours in and having completed (with an "A" grade) almost all of the 60 official levels in the game, I've yet to find a single one of them even remotely challenging (and therefore rewarding) to figure out. And yet, I still feel like those levels have taken far longer than they should have to complete, for two reasons;

First, because the pace of gameplay is so gratingly slow. The level starts, and within a few seconds it's pretty clear how to solve it - and you are left for several minutes just watching the ball crawl its way back and forth across the level before you can move on. Worse, maybe you overlooked something, and need to make a minor change to the sequence in which you collect the circles - so you must start again, and crawl your way along the same path again... This sense of boredom is only made worse by the extreme simplicity of the graphics, with the result that every level looks so similar as to barely be distinguishable.

The second, and probably more significant problem, is the control system. Having been designed entirely around touchscreen support, they are an overly simplistic "left-click-anywhere-does-everything" affair, with no alternate or rebinding options. It wouldn't seem like a big deal, as the game mechanics are so limited - and, as far as rotating and activating or deactivating bumpers, if you've got a smoothly functioning mouse there's no real problem. The second control mechanic of drawing lines, however, becomes unnecessarily clumsy with these controls. If, for example, you need to turn a bumper then immediately draw a line, or vice-versa, this imprecision can easily trip you up and force you to restart the level - taking us back to problem #1.

Overall - as a lover of puzzle games, I became so bored as to find playing the game a chore after less than 2 hours of gameplay - which in any case, was enough to grind through almost all of the levels. Unless it's 95% off, I'd recommend avoiding this one.

Really fun, minimal puzzler that's great for passing time. The type of game I'd play on one screen while watching a movie or TV show on the other. If not though, the music and sounds are great! At the current sale price of $0.49 USD it's a great pickup.
