Any puzzler out there as cool as Mondrian?

I don't even know if it available any more - but I thought that Mondrian was one of the best, coolest puzzle games that I have ever come across. Nice difficulty ramp up, different effects over time, a minimalist, but very humorous story line. i know that there are lots of puzzlers that have elements every bit as good as Mondrian - but nothing has the whole package - or have I missed something? Any suggestions would be welcome.For more recent excellent puzzlers - I have dwelp, blec, all the Quell series, perfect paths, Pathz, Monument, Quetzelcoatl, Huerons, Marbly Deluxe.

Yep - still available.

Sigh - I guess the lack of replies indicates a "no" response.

Ah well.

Well, there are zillions of creative puzzlers on the appstore, even old iPhone ones like Chromixa which still works well, even on an iPad. As I do not know Mondrian, it is hard for me to recommend something similar. Have you tried Clarc, Hitman Go, English Country Tune, Shapist? It all depends on your personal taste.

Now playing: Tokaido, Jaipur, Race for the Galaxy, Potion Explosion, Lanterns, Lotus
Waiting for: Enough time to play through the back catalogue of my recent purchases

Different game, but Helsing's Fire definitely has the same 'cool' factor!

Chromixa was mentioned, and it's solid.

Maybe Dream of Pixels? Girls Love Robots?
