App description: - OpenFeint Enabled -

Part puzzle and part strategy game, Symbolism is a unique offering that challenges gamers to think both methodically and critically in order to rack up high scores.

The premise of the game is somewhat simple. Each square has a symbol and a color and can only be placed next to squares that have either the same color or symbol. Once an entire row or column has been filled, it is cleared. Once every square on the board has been marked at least once (signified by a yellow background), the level is over.

Sound easy? Sure, at first it will be a piece of cake, but with each passing level comes more and more color and shape combinations. Do you have what it takes to be Symbolism master? There is only one way to find out...

iBigGamer's comments:

I've been waiting for it forever, but someone has finally created one of my favorite games of all time on the iPhone...Alchemy. This game is named 'Symbolism' and is a great take on a classic puzzle game. It's a 1.0 version of the game, but it looks like (from the description) that more depth is in the works. Really cool game!! Check it out...let me know what you guys think. I've emailed the developer about getting redeem codes for the forum.

Here is the link for those interested:

I got it yesterday and I like it. Alchemy is also one of my favorites and it's nice to see this one on the App Store.

Got an email from Andrew (Drew)...

He passed along 25 redeem codes. I don't know the best way about going about this, but he recommended dropping them in the forum post, so here goes:

Looks good, I'm going to leave a code for someone else, as I don't think that i will play it much. Have enough puzzle games and someone else would get more use than me.
