App description: Selected for PAX10! Indiecade 2012 Nominee! Winner of Best Puzzle Game 2011 Intel Level Up! Kotaku Gaming App of the Day!

"Nigh-on perfect. 10 out of 10" -- TouchArcade

"Easily one of the best puzzlers available on any gaming platform ... should not be missed. 5 out of 5" -- AppShack

**Optimized for iPad 2 or newer; iPad 1 users will experience sluggish performance.**

Splice is an experimental and artistic puzzler. Immerse yourself in its microbial world and start splicing! Every level ("strand") consists of a number of cells that you will need to rearrange into a target structure in several moves ("splices"). Exploration and experimentation are key in determining how the curious little cells react to each other. Predict the sequence of splices you'll have to make in order to successfully arrange each strand. Re-sequence, mutate, and splice your way through this unique puzzle experience, and you'll exercise your ability to visualize sequential series of shapes over time. Solve your way to the final strands and you'll be left with a heady sense of mental accomplishment!

I reached the end of Sequence of 7, and was like... there's no way this is the end of the game...

I read that this was incredibly challenging, and, while challenging, there was nothing that really drove me crazy. Then I reached the Epilogue stages. OMG. That, with the Angelic solutions, really pushes this game above and beyond just about everything else in the AppStore. I really can't recommend this one enough. LOVE it. =oD

Even more twisted and crazier than SpaceChem?

Wish I could say yes, but I don't have SpaceChem. Slipped by me because I got my iPad at the beginning of this year, and didn't pay attention to iPad games before that. But... thanks for bringing it up, I wishlisted it, and will get it when I get another gift card (this week was crazy for games... spent a good $40+) =oP

Anyone have suggestions for sequence 3 strand 07? I'm stuck.

I'm a big fan of Cipher Prime. Pulse requires way too much coordination for me, but I loved Auditorium and hold the top spot on the Fractal leaderboard. Unfortunately, when I tried the demo for Splice on PC, the camera motion made me nauseated. While it might be better on the smaller iPad screen, I'm hesitant to purchase for that reason.

Then you need to dip your fingers in some mayo and smear it all over your iDevice screen for greater REALISM!

Unlike the PC version, the screen only moves when you tilt your iPad... it does NOT move when you're moving microbes around...

Oh? That's really helpful, thanks Synthetic. Maybe between that and the smaller screen, it will be ok. The menus are annoying, but not a huge deal, because it isn't constant. I had actually forgotten that the camera moved constantly in the PC version until you mentioned it, just that it gave me fits.

Just came in here to say that I really like this game. The rules and controls are simple; the puzzles challenge my brain without challenging my fingers or my patience at all. The graphics and music are beautiful. Great stuff.
