Woooohooooooo! Another stylish, polished, wacky release from Kenny Sun that has killer bgm and sfx.
And this time, the puzzles are INSANE, in a good way. Think snakebird levels of difficulty. I'm yet to complete world 1 after a whole evening with this. Super cool puzzles, really unusual movement mechanics that are perfectly logical but really brainmelting.

This looks so good! How do you manipulate the triangles? Multitouch?

You only control one triangle, the blue one. Swipe in a direction to move, tap to place pivot points.

All the chaotic triangle movement you see in the trailer is a result of the trippy chain reaction mechanics of triangle movement, which are really hard to explain in words. Think sokoban on a triangular grid, but weird stuff happens.

Honestly, I like the idea, but it's not hooking me like TRIANGLE. I feel like I'm battling the controls half the time (thankfully there's an undo button!). Will spend more time with it to see if it might become second nature, but I prefer my puzzles to be tricky to solve, not tricky to control.

And again...no iCloud. This one does feel like it could use the bigger screen sometimes.

Crashes immediately after opening on iPhone 6+ and Air 2, both running iOS 9.3.4. Will contact developer.

The controls can be a bit fiddly, but once they click it gets easier. Understanding how to place the pivot point is crucial to success, even on some of the early "easy" puzzles. This game is not messing around.... it's quite the brain buster. The satisfaction of figuring out a puzzle that seems impossible is highly rewarding. This is a great new take on sliding puzzles. Definitely made for those who like a good challenge.

I thought it crashed too but it's actually just the start of the intro animation and credits. It's a cool delayed intro. Try it again.
