Ikue is the ideal pick up and play game and can be enjoyed at the doctors office, on the bus or in the sofa at home.

The game includes is free and includes story mode with 50 levels as well as a starter pack with additional 50 levels. Those thirsty for more can buy 4 additional level packs of different challenge levels with 100 levels each for a total of 500 levels.

Features:

* 50 Starter pack levels
* 400 IAP levels of varying difficulty
* 10 Unique tile types

It's a nice little puzzler, not sure how IAPs play into things just yet though. Really nice presentation too. As much as I hate to criticise though, the tutorial is pretty poor as it dumps a bit too much on you that you won't need for a little while but other than that, worth trying

Got my interest - but why does every 2nd puzzler story resolve around mysterious artifacts

Really enjoying these puzzles & I'm a big fan of that slightly scruffy, antique look & the interesting design of the puzzles' pieces. Have to agree with the earlier comment about the tutorial - it's more complex/confusing than the initial gameplay requires, but once you're into the game that's pretty much forgotten.
This is definitely a game worth keeping & your playing experience will be vastly improved by chucking a mere 69 of your Earth pence at it to get rid of those god-awful mood-ruining adverts.
