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

    This is a really great take on a puzzle game. It's simple to pick up and start, then the puzzles actually get more difficult. I'm still stuck on a level that I'm trying to figure out on my own. Very refreshing gameplay. Definitely recommend it for any puzzle game player, and I love that the game doesn't spam you with ads at all. The Escher style is really cool and trippy. It's interesting to grasp the different dimensions around each shape and super satisfying when you beat a level. 10/10

  • 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.

    This game is very awsome!! This game helps me use my useless brain for complex puzzels. Im already at level 30 in 15-20 minutes. Everyone should play it for 15 minutes so their brain can warm up and not be frustrated. Also the game has very relaxing music that helps you not get frustrated but calm.

    Cool puzzle game with a mind-bending twist; you can never know which strategy to use for the next level, so it makes you adapt to the circumstances. No ads and relaxing chimes music. Great puzzle game!

    I can't even open the game, it keeps telling me that app has stopped working. I think it shouldn't be the problem with my phone, I have android 10 and 18:9 aspect ratio.

    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.

    Main menu has no words. While the game is in the background and you have another app open, hocus will continue to make background noise

    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.
  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

    It's genuinely a really good game and super fun to play and sometimes the puzzles get super hard I started recently and it's really easy to pick up and I haven't run into any adds so far .

    It's a legit puzzle game that's a lot of fun to play and collect high exp achievements without ads pissing you off. I'll consider buying premium after reaching lvl.40, but "Endless Mode" doesn't work (S10) and causes the game to hang (force close). The recent update just promotes the new Hocus 2 game - no new features or fixes. Not ideal for a premium game.

    Only thing is I wish there were way more levels, but 120 is still awesome. Love the soothing wind chime music, super relaxing game to play.

    Kind of like Monument Valley I guess, except the concept and the controls are more spotty. Also, it lacks oomph.
  • Excellent if... Dec 22, 2017

    It will be excellent if there is a dark mode with dark background for iPhone X users.
  • 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.

    Fun game but Google Play doesn't save your progress if you get a new phone and it's pay to play after 40 levels anyway.
