4.0 out of 5 stars Really difficult 7 May 2014
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
So this one took me a while to figure out; there's no manual or instructions so you're thrown in at the deep end.

An assortment of polyhedrons are thrown at you and you use your thumbs to spin the shape until you find the missing face at which point your white dot passes through the open face and inside the shape where there is...another polyhedron of some variety with a missing face. You are travelling at an increasing speed towards the shapes.

You have to spin that shape to find the missing face and repeat. Inside every shape is another and you have to pass your starting white dot through the gaps to progress. It's as simple as that, except for a single miss means you start from the beginning. It took me about ten minutes to get a score over five! It's well animated, the shapes move smoothly but it's insanely difficult. If you are looking for an app that will infuriate you to the level of Flappy Bird then you've come to the right place.

High-score so far: 29

5.0 out of 5 stars so addictive! 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase
this game is a little difficult, but that's what makes it fun really. It's one of those games that you literally can't stop playing until you've beaten your high score (mine's only 25 at the moment) after about 15 it gets faster and a lot harder but it's definitely my fave game AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT ONLY HAS 3 STARS

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive and fun! 7 May 2014
By Amber
Verified Purchase
This game is incredibly addictive!
Love,love,love it!

There are no instructions but seriously? If you can't figure out what you need to do after a first or second try, then this game isn't for you. Because you need a LOT of patience and determination...

It really is very simple -
You have to capture the tiny white cube,
- You do this by twisting the big moving polyhedron to position the opening so you can capture the tiny white cube.
And then repeat with the next polyhedron within that one and so on, and so on.

It is fast and tricky! And lots of fun.

Good, smooth graphics!

Happy that I got this little gem for free but would be just as happy to pay for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars wow. Never played a game like this before. 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I know someones explained before, bit I still didn"t get it. Here's my take.
Two shapes start from a far away perpective. One has a white dot and the other an open gap in one part. You've got to turn one shape until its gap swallows the white dot. Then you get another shape and that must be faced to swallow the dot. The thing is, its coming at you in real time and when you succeed with the 1st shape you must be already turning the next shape. BUT you still have to watch out because the previous shape can still block your view if you turn yoo much. Miss the gap and you start over.
It is hard, but kind of addictive too.

4.0 out of 5 stars once you get it... 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Very steep learning curve. Dev should include a tutorial maybe. But basically you need to rotate the polyhedron to allow the floating piece into it. As a tip, on the "menu" screen, there's a slider on the left which let's you pick the sensitivity of rotating it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ultra hard! 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Yes this game is hard, though that doesn't make it a bad game just a hard one. Even if hard games aren't your thing it's worth having a look. The graphics are smooth and flowing. I am still amazed at what the kindle fire HD is capable of. If it's free get it, however if your reading this after its period as free app of the day I would highly recommend seeking out a demo or watching a video before dropping any cash.

2.0 out of 5 stars VERY DIFFICULT.. 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Nice smooth graphics don't really compensate for the difficulty in playing this game. From the outset you have to rotate a quickly advancing 3-dimensional shape that has one face missing so that the previous shape is consumed by the hole the missing face has created. My reflexes are pretty good, as is my hand-eye coordination, but this game doesn't really let you ease into the rhythm - it's relentless from the start. If quick reactions are what makes having fun for you then this may fit the bill. Otherwise, the reflex reactions and monotonous game play involved in this particular game will wear thin very quickly.
2 stars because of the smooth programming... no stars for the game itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent.. No instructions required! 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Thanks to the dev for this interesting game.. I don't think a low star rating for a lack of instructions should be given on a game with such an obvious aim as this: "Guide the small shape into the fast approaching big shape (and repeat) by dragging anywhere on the screen".
