ENDING -> Free

I can't post the app info right now, can some one fill it in for me? It was featured/reviewed on TA a few weeks ago, iirc. The icon is black,grey,and white.

Not typically a big fan of board games or roguelikes... but I like chess and small original games so I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the heads up.

This is very good. Menu and interface may take some figuring out.

Just deleted this, stupidest menu system in the world award goes to this game. I played the first three levels and have no clue what the menu buttons do. Or why there seems to be different modes and why I couldn't quit from one of them without closing the app.

It's really not that hard to figure out. The three icons that show when you first start the app are the "main menu" that shows the three different modes of the game. The first is the "campaign" mode that serves to teach you how all of the various enemies and other entities work. There is no written tutorial, but the levels are ingeniously designed so that while figuring them out, you learn all the elements of the game.

The second is a "challenge" mode where you have to use your knowledge gained in the campaign mode to navigate randomly generated levels and get to the numbered gates, or you can go through a non-numbered one if you have no other choice, but you have to find the numbered ones to progress. I'm pretty sure the idea is to go through all the numbers, counting down from 8 all the way to 1. I haven't finished it, though.

That's all you need to know to play. The third icon in the main menu is evidently some kind of creation mode, but I haven't messed with it. But the game itself is quite addictive, and plays fast enough that you want to keep playing just one more, especially in the challenge mode.

Great example of finely executed minimalism in vidya games
