As everyone's said it ia really good game me and my 13 year old son go back to it again and again but hasn't Amazon already given this game away before as the free app of the day? And I don't think it's the first time either. ..?

Super puzzle game. Nice to have an Australian one for a change too.A simple premise, join together a set of coloured shapes, then two sets of different colours and shapes and so on. You get three sets to start with and each one in the initial sets guides you through how to solve the puzzle going through the conduits that join them up. When you connect with everything correctly they turn white and you get a new one. After 4 sets are completed you get the option of another colour palette which changes the background colour and the shape colours too. You can change these back at any time. Some of the puzzles are easy but some are fiendishly difficult!
You also get daileys. This a mixed ability assortment of 100 puzzles, different every day. There is also a somewhat eerie bamboo flute sound when you slide along the pieces and the puzzle number also quietly fades in after starting with a sprightly eerie noise which makes the game strangely atmospheric.
You don't have to go in order so if you get stuck on one you can try another and go back to it.
The game is totally addictive! I find it great when travelling or in a waiting room and absolutely have to do a few at bed time as well.
Have shown it to friends and they have trouble stopping playing it too!
A super, well thought out puzzle which really stretches the mind.

It wont be for everyone but hey, if you love unique puzzle games you'll wanna check this one out.

This puzzle game has you linking together coloured shapes via means of per-determined lines set out in each puzzle. It starts off slowly and introduces you to each game mechanic at an easy pace, allowing you to get used to what each thing does before introducing you to the next. There's no time limit on the regular puzzle sets nor is there any in-app purchases. Just chill out and solve the puzzles at your own pace. Once you complete the second set of puzzles, three additional sets open up as well as the "Daily Puzzle" mode which randomly creates three sets of puzzles which you can only play during the day that you generated them. Much like the main game, these start off easy and slowly work their way up to be more complicated. Also, when you complete one level in a set the next three or so puzzles get unlocked, so if you ever get stuck on one you can always just move onto the next one until you feel like going back!

Also available on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Windows Phone.

This is the 2nd time I've downloaded this app and I have to say that every time I see this in play store I think this one is a good idea. So why did I uninstall it? Well it became so complicated that I lost interest , having tried to complete the levels took so much stress and time that I gave up as it didn't hold my interest. So what's it like the 2nd. Time around? Well if you play the first game all the rest are very much the same only harder and therein lies the problem its the basic design its rather plain and although there is some colour change its more of the same as you progress, so apart from the competitiveness of the games there's little to hold interest. Its why Devs spend so much time putting that sparkle surprising and delighting to draw us on through the game. This is a good, sound, well thought out game and it has a lot of good points to it but I feel it could with some more zing to bring me back a third time.

Only had the game 1 week but can't put it down. It starts off fairly simple but increases in difficulty fairly quickly. On starting the game you have 2 choices: 'Begin ' - this directs you to 3 sets of 25 games each where the difficulty increases with each set.( Not sure what happens when all 3 sets complete as I have not got there yet). or' Daily' - here the puzzles change each day and are very varied. They can be easy, medium, hard challenging or a mixture.
The only slight complaint I have is that the Daily puzzles sometimes consist of 2 sets of 25 games which can be too many to complete in 1 day. It would be good if you could go back to complete previous days' puzzles when you have more time.
Overall I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a challenge and has a few mins or even hours to spare!!

Initially intriguing but rapidly gets monotonous. Essentially you are presented with a puzzle akin to a maze to be navigated from a start point to a finish point via a number of points to be passed once only and calling a specified number of times at various way points which permit you to cross a previous section of your path. Otherwise you cannot cross the path you are making or retrace a path you have made.

The challenge is stepped up by introducing two colours of path which have to be traced on the same board.

This challenge is initially interesting and requires some reasoning and forethought to avoid being locked into trial and error. However, the spatial limitation of a tablet or phone screen doom this game eventually to becoming tiresome.
