  • Lack of Game Center Sync Apr 20, 2019

    I can’t pick up from the last level completed I’m Iphone from iPad. Failed. Don’t feel like replaying from the beginning.

    Amazing game. I love the idea and the app is simple, elegant, perhaps has ads but I haven't seen any yet in 20 minutes of play, and they didn't beg for a rating before I could play past the first level. This is what the app store should be hosting and the dev of this piece of art should be proud! I haven't looked yet but if there is a way to support them I will pay for this. Fantastic game, fantastic ambience, and what all app development should strive towards! Well done!

  • Great, relaxing mind-bending puzzles Oct 16, 2020

    By Luna Lunita Lunera
    This is a nice little game to get enough of a challenge in while perhaps waiting in line, relaxing after a tough day or challenge the kids to stretch their imaginations a bit. Some levels are trickier than others but they’re all quite doable without any kind of hint system or walkthrough. Reminds me of a much more simplistic and less-involved version of The Bridge (which is another great game I’m still waiting for on mobile). A bit of a mind-bending puzzle game. You can tap or swipe to lead the block around. Not sure why another reviewer broke their phone as you certainly don’t need to tap or swipe that hard. Calibration shouldn’t be that intense.

    Mind bogglingly simple yet deceptive enough to keep you racking your head to figure out each level. Haven't come across such an interesting puzzler in a very long time. Completely impressed by it. And as if things weren't already amazing enough, there're no ads either! Definitely recommend this game to anyone who enjoys puzzles and illusions.

  • Its okay, but... Aug 26, 2020

    By βwabel
    So i got this a couple years ago and its really fun! The challenges and puzzles are nice, but after a bit of time the puzzles were to challenging & to repetitive at the same time. They didnt add any features like maybe a blue square, or something, but just the repeating levels with just little change and no new features get repetitive, and VERY boring after a bit of time.

  • Sometimes you have to swipe 20 times for the app to register Jul 12, 2019

    It is very frustrating... I know it’s a bug, and the developers have worked hard to create this app, but this annoying bug is preventing me from enjoying it.

    Sure, the concept is ok, but only 100 levels for a game that costs money? I would rather play a free game with over 3,000 levels than this.

    So you basically removed pocus from the AppStore and put back the same thing with a different title on it as puzzlement?
  • Mediocre game. Needs work. Aug 8, 2016

    By ANickNameNoOneElseHas!
    I liked the idea of using optical illusions for mazes at first but it didn't take long to realize their really are only a few techniques to learn that, once you master them, make every puzzle so easy to beat it's just plain boring. One nice feature is that users can create their own puzzles which other players can rate. The trouble is apoplectic are creating puzzles before they've even learned all the tricks so almost all of them are ridiculously easy. The developers are smart in one way. Users are creating their puzzles for them (and what do we get out of that? Hm?), AND rating them to boot! All the Devs have to do is load the best rated puzzles from a database. Nice way to make your users do all the work for you, but it won't last.

  1. 120 different mind-twisting levels of illusion puzzles optimized specifically for mobile devices
  2. Intentionally minimalist design ideal for winding down and de-stressing after a long day
  3. Relaxing music and background sound tracks help you find your zen while focusing on the puzzle at hand

    Simple in appareance, challenging in practice, this game is awesome. The level design is incredible, the interface is simple and smooth. No idea how the music is ,i play on silent, its the best way to enjoy it. This game is definitely something to play for a long time. Its a great example of a casual game done right. Level creator , infinity mode, a lot of standard levels, makes up for great value for the money.

    A great game to get your brain into gear. Even the early levels are a bit challenging. I recommend turning your 'Screen Timeout' setting off or the red block will move when you tap the screen to keep it on. A good little brain teaser for your bus ride to work (if you are working).

    Fun game no ads but after level 40 you have to pay for the rest of the levels...it's a little frustrating that I can't play any further without paying for it but if from what I could play was decent

    It's good, but it takes up only half of my screen. I would like the game to have a "Adjust Screen" option, but it'd be good either way. If I could give this game a 7/5, I would, but the issue took a star. I'll be waiting (patiently) for the issue to be resolved! Any way, 4/5, 9/10, very good. Hope to be replied to in two days!

    It is just awesome. I loved how minimalistic this game is. However, I didn't like the request to pay for unlocking the rest of the game.
  • Beautiful, but boring Dec 4, 2017

    By taysxfq
    Games like this are beautifully crafted and pretty to look at but the novelty quickly wears off when you realize how easy they are. There isn’t much strategy to these levels, you just can swipe around in a relatively limited number of paths until you win.

  • Actually Fun Oct 22, 2017

    By Faraven
    An actually fun/challenging puzzle game. It's unique and creative and really challenges ones special skills. While still being a very fun puzzle game we haven't had new maps in forever and it doesn't look like that will change. You're paying for 100 maps folks.

    Its a good game with a fun and relaxing puzzle mechanic. Unfortunately you only get 40 put of the total 120 levels and in my experience the 'Endless' mode will not work.
  • Puzzle 36 Sep 7, 2020

    Puzzle 36 is unsolvable. I’ve tried every way - keep going in circles. Flaw in design.
  • Easy going, mind bending, needs more. Oct 7, 2015

    By Sammythemannybolany
    I like the unique quality of the gameplay. It's simple and slow-paced which is nice, but it begins to get boring after a while. It didn't take long to finish the 50 levels that are on here. I wish there were more. It needs more gameplay mechanics but also needs to retain its simplicity. The game continues to play the same from level 1 to level 50. The difficulty doesn't really increase much. I want faster rolling and I don't like that the screen dims while the cube roles then flashes back when it finished. When you become more comfortable with the game and begin to play faster, the screen starts to look like a strobe which gets annoying to the eyes. Overall, I really enjoyed the game. It's a nice breather from the majority of other games on the App Store that are over-encumbered with coins, tokens, gems, complicated mechanics etc. it just needs some small improvements. I look forward to seeing what it becomes.

  • Needs improvement Aug 6, 2016

    By Smorze
    I like it somewhat, I love impossible figures. I played monument valley and it used impossible figures amazingly and made them easy to navigate. However I went all the way to level 25 and realized the game was too one sided. What I mean by this is there is like only on way to beat each level. I've positioned the cube on a position where if the physics of monument valley were in place I would be able to pass it. It frustrated me that my way of solving it wasn't in the game. If the team new more about these figures they'd know how to implement the multiple ways of moving the cube. I deleted it because that's just failure of game design by the creators.

  • Bad color. Boring, Too easy to play. Not a 3D game. Dec 29, 2015

    By Game_and_Music
    This game is too easy to play. Although I love the M.C Escher’s art, the game is kind of boring and the puzzles are too easy to solve. All we need to do is to aimless roll the cube around for a little while without even having to think and then all the puzzles are solved… The worst thing is that the colors of the metal bars is always silver, which is not fun. Perhaps, you could change the color of the metal bar, background and the cube to some things more pleasing to the eyes. Also, this is not a 3D game. Overall, I wish I had my money back, and I asked Apple to refund me, but they say there is no option to refund this game unfortunately.
