A nice relaxing Match 3 game until the later levels, which get quite difficult. However, getting past them seems to rely more on strategic planning than luck, so while it's sometimes frustrating, it doesn't feel unfair.

Major downside: no level selection, so if you want to replay, you have to delete your save or create a new profile and start from Level 1.

I really like such puzzle games. Someone said that after level 45 it gets really hard but that wasn't true for me. Only the last level (55th) took a while to beat but it's doable. Not hard to 100% (at least for me it wasn't). :P

Art style and presentation is trippy and honestly very interesting.

Gameplay-wise, it’s one of the more terrible puzzle games I’ve played. In this game, you have to clear regions of same-color blocks, like SameGame, but with the baffling restriction that you can only clear a region if you can draw a path through every block. This leaves your options severely limited at all times.

With such limited options for moves, it’s next to impossible to set up any big combos or get out of trouble on purpose (about on par with Bejeweled / Candy Crush), and in the cases you do, the game could drop a Lucid block in the middle of it (which are supposed to be rewards) and force you to reset the board, destroying what you built.

Starting level layouts seem to be hand-designed, but random skyfalls and target colors mean it doesn’t really matter.

Competitively, there are no game mechanics in place to prevent you from playing a level forever for unlimited score, except that getting stuck with no possible moves will zero your score. At about level 48, there’s a sudden difficulty spike as all objectives require regions of 3 or more, so playing through all 55 levels without getting a Game Over is highly unlikely. Oh, and no leaderboards!

For a game that tries to sell itself as relaxing, it’s a bit too far on the frustrating and stressful side, and certainly not something you can zone out to while playing. Achievement hunters should probably grab it on sale, as it’ll be in your 100% trophy case in a few mere hours, but for casual or hardcore puzzle fans, there’s so many better options out there.
