Puzzling Puzzle Game About the Beauty and Joy of 'Yankai’ s Triangle' €3.49 > Free

Published in November 2016, free for the very first time. Full premium: no advertisings, no "In-App Purchases". Very recommended!

TA review (Musgrave; five stars): A Game with Kaleidoscope Eyes

Yankai's Triangle is weird. It seems to have a never-ending number of stages. Sometimes it looks at you. The colors are subdued one level, then shockingly bright the next. The scoring system is hard to make sense of. Everything is a little grainy. The eyes are watching. You might run into an absurdly difficult level followed by an astonishingly simple one immediately after. Before each level there are some symbols that mean something, but it's hard to say what unless you really watch carefully. Sometimes there are teeth. The game also introduces each and every level with a title card saying the level number followed with "by Kenny Sun". Perhaps the weirdest thing of all is that you're not doing much more than spinning triangles around, trying to match colors to make bigger triangles, and yet it's nearly impossible to put down.

At any rate, trying to explain Yankai's Triangle in words is a somewhat futile gesture. It's a fantastic puzzle game that I can't recommend enough. The number of levels is mind-boggling. It's relaxing, it teases the brain, and it's dazzling in its presentation. And oh yes, it's very weird, in perhaps the best possible way. Just go for it.
