Say...this looks good. The visual style reminds me of Puzzlejuice a bit, which is definitely not a bad thing.

I think is this very similar to Pathpix and all the others in the series.

If this is true, then this absolutely no bad thing and highly recommended to all puzzle lovers.

Just bought this. Lovely spin on the aforementioned already well-established series. So, for this reason, and the fact it's got a great social component, all I can say is highly recommended.

It seems Noodlecake did the porting as they just released a trailer... Unfortunately that video reveals nothing about the gameplay

It does look reminiscent of PathPix, but with more variety in the mechanics/designs (one way paths, not always knowing the other endpoint, etc)

I just finished the first level pack (Starter) and let me just say if you want a really challenging game, I think we've found it. Even the levels in the starter pack start to get mind bending at the end (35 total). Nice, moody music, responsive controls, clean and simple look. No landscape mode, unfortunately.

Imagine PathPix, then add in spaces that only let you move one direction, tunnels that let you wrap to the other side of the board, and spaces that add or subtract from the number of moves you have to use for a particular line. It starts adding up to a lot of variables in a hurry.

There are three additional packs included Easy (30 levels) and 2 medium packs (20 each). Then we get to the IAP. There are 17 more level packs ranging from easy (30 levels), medium (20 levels), to hard and insane (10 levels each).

I haven't tried the easy or medium levels yet, but while there's a reasonable amount of purchase for a dollar, I'm not crazy about the IAP setup. So far I really like Huebrix, but I'd rather pay a flat purchase to unlock everything (and I've felt the same way about other games, this is nothing new for me).

There is a timed component to this but it is fairly easily ignored unless you are the sort who has to get the highest rating at everything. I don't really get the appeal of giving medals for fast times when you can replay the levels as much as you like, but it's there for those that are into it.
