Symbol6 [Short review]

So I just got this game from a promo code that the developer posted here a short while ago. All they asked for was a review in return, so I am going to write this honest review.


It has a really cool "How To Play" area I saw when I first started using it. Which shows you how to operate it in real time playing.

If you like strategy games, or puzzle games this might be something you like.

Game Play:
Basically it consists of a hexagonal shape with 7 shapes. You must change the shapes to the area which the similar incoming shape is headed toward. Though there is this one item which turns your shapes all gray so watch out.

Cost / Other Info
$2.99 in the App store.
App store rating: 4.5


My opinion:

Though puzzle games are not really my style, this game is actually pretty cool. Though I have not gotten the full hang of it for my self. I have not really seen a game like this before, and the graphics are amazing.
The background music is calm and doesn't disrupt the game at all. The sounds are in good quality, and not really any complaints at this point. Though if I have suggestions or complaints I will be editing this post with them.

So I only suggest people whom like puzzle games buy this. Though even if you don't 100% like them, but sort of like them you might like this one.

Though I will leave it up to you. Post your thoughts about the game here if you get it.

My rating: 4/5

Hey thanks a lot for the review, I was actually pretty curious about the game from the screenshots. Can you put a link with a game play vid?

phewww, that game is tough. I lost around level 9. Well, I'll put that game on my list. It's fun, but Zen Bound and Sway are calling me atm.

EDIT: Why'd I say level 9? I meant 11. Lol.

Tried the web version and this is not a puzzle game. You have a few sides and there's symbols coming towards you and you have to swap the symbols on the sides to match the incoming ones. This is a dexterity game, nothing puzzle-ish about it.
