Saw it this morning and decided to give it a shot. It's pretty fantastic. Great audio and visual design. Definitely give it a try if you're a logic puzzle fan.

Oh yeah, this is amazing. It's really, really slick. Like Hobbsicle said, the audio and visual design is superb and the game plays flawlessly. It's like they used the basics from Flow Free (or whatever that popular game is called), and just ran with it in a whole bunch of directions. Beautiful. Just beautiful.

I'm completely lost about this game. How the hell does it work?

Starting at one of the outlined start points, click and drag a path connecting shapes of the same color. You can't cross your path, or go over the same path twice. There are spaces that need to be hit multiple times, and these can be crossed by the same color as long as you enter and exit by different routes. If you need to backtrack, you can drag backwards along your path, or click a starting point to erase all of the lines of that color.

Yeah, you just connect all the shapes of a kind to each other, basically. They just add tiles that have to be crossed multiple times. It's easy to get into, but has plenty of challenge so far.

It seems to contain several pre-made level sets (they unlock one at a time, so I couldn't tell you how many), but the cool thing is that they have "daily puzzles" that unlock after you beat the first couple of packs. But it's not just one daily level. It's an entire pack per day. Today was actually two packs (50 levels), and it says tomorrow will be one harder pack. So the content seems to be basically endless.

The game really feels great to play, so I would recommend you give it a shot.
