App description: Unscramble the tiles to reconnect the broken lines into closed rectangles. Each puzzle level is algorithmically generated on the fly - meaning you'll never solve the same puzzle twice even if you play the same level again. Need a hint? You earn a peek at a possible solution for each level solved without peeking. Earned peeks can also be used to restart the level partially solved. If you're stuck at a difficult level with no peeks remaining, you can go back to a prior level to earn more peeks or restart the level with a new puzzle. Finding the puzzles too easy? Adjust the difficulty by skipping levels. Every level has at least one solution and most will have many. The puzzles and solutions are infinite.

Movement:

Tap - Select a tile to move. Tap again to move.
Long Press - Select connected tiles to move. Tap to move.
Tap the selected tile - Cancel move


Peek options:

Peek - Peek at a solution at the cost of one peek
Restart with Help - Spend a peek to restart the level partially solved
New Puzzle - Generate a new puzzle at this level without spending a peek


Game options:

Music - Turn the music on/off or adjust the volume
Sound Effects - Turn the sound effects on/off
Difficulty - Adjust the difficulty by advancing 1, 5, 10, or 20 levels at a time
Replay Completed Levels - Replay any level previously completed except level 1

Quick thoughts: interesting puzzler. Works like a digital jigsaw puzzle where you have to assemble quadrilaterals. The kicker is you can't just build them as you want. Some pieces are interlocked so you have to plan your screen space around that. There is an element of tedium in putting hem together but, you know, it's a puzzle. That's part of the deal. Downside: ads between each level. It's not terrible because you only have to watch the first few seconds before you can close it. The background music is 16-bit techno, which sounds like the backbeat from an old Casio keyboard but actually fits suprisingly well with the aesthetic. I really kinda liked that. The thuds when you select/deselect a piece got old quick when I had to reposition half of my board because I miscounted by one space though.

@meponder, thanks for the good review! Cool that you noticed the retro vibe. That was intentional. I binge watched "Stranger Things" while I was doing the development, and got nostalgic for the old 80's arcade games.

Just in case you haven't discovered it yet - you can use long-press to select entire connected sections for movement. It helps a lot when you realize you're off by one or two spaces.
