The player with the fewest squares on remaining pieces is the winner!

Use power-ups to destroy blocks, freeze your opponent, search for traps, morph your pieces, and get out of tough situations!

Oh. Well I didn't now that. Odd that they would release their own, independent app.

I passed on the original after reading reviews about bugs and clumsy UI controls. Maybe they fixed it up?

That was my thinking too, hoping they'll have improved upon the game or at least be better at patching than GameLoft are. Plus, the original has been pulled - most likely due to licence expiring.

This. I remember playing it a lot when it was released by GL. It was good, but nothing which hooked me for too much time.

I would like to know, whether this re-release has working async multiplayer, something that the Gameloft app did not provide unfortunately.

Now playing: Unworded, Aurora Puzzle Adventure, Steamworld Heist, PinOut!, Sproggiwood, Colorcube, kubic, Mekorama, Open Bar!
Waiting for: Any Star Realms expansion, Nyheim, Onirim
