Gameplay can seem weird at the beginning but you'll get the hang of it pretty soon. You start with a board and a given amount of building (tiles). You have to place them on the board, but no buildings can share the same height in any given row or column. What's more, there may be any number of parks per row or column. The purpose is to place them following that golden rule while trying to do it in agreement with what indicates the number at the end of some rows and column. For example, if the number is a 2, two buildings should be visible from that approach (from that skyline).
First levels are easy in order to facilitate the learning of the logic of the game. However, it will become more complex as you progress. There are up to 56 challenges divided in 4 difficulty levels (trainee, specialist, professional and master). You have to beat one level to unlock the following.
It's set in cool and clear 3D graphics. It's noticeable a hard developing effort backing it because performance is also smooth. We've noticed no lag, not even rotating 3D board. An excellent scenery, more than expected in this kind of puzzle games.
In a nutshell, a well-developed challenging puzzle game, a groundbreaking one, regarding gameplay. Highly addictive, truly recommendable.
An addictive challenge for all logic puzzle lovers.
56 challenging levels, divided into 4 categories.
Reiner Knizia and Aidem Media, to celebrate the upcoming release of City of Secrets 2, present to you Skyline. A new and refreshed edition of the popular board game, designed to fit the style of the City of Secrets.
The City of Secrets has more secrets and hidden places than anyone could have imagined. Deep inside the bowels of the Earth, in an abandoned mine, there is a very old and, one has to admit, pretty well-designed gate. Behind it lies... well, that's the heart of the problem actually - nobody knows what the aforementioned gate guards, because a security-crazed ancient builder decided to secure it with a multi-leveled puzzle. Face the ancient challenge and see what tasks await you in the City of Secrets 2!
This product was not tested on animals. During the production process, no sweet potatoes were injured, nor any other funny vegetable... neither a fruit... OK, we admit: someone was hurt - one coder had a runny nose, a very irritating one.
Recently changed in this version:

Comments and ratings for Reiner Knizia's Skyline Free
Would be nice if at least a few hard puzzles were in the demo. I'd like to see how's hard it gets before I buy it. Plus the same puzzle but with a different name is on the web at puzzle sites.
I wish I knew before spending money that you are not truly able to upgrade within the app. There is no where to go to do the upgrade. The game itself is fun but very very easy. I am very disappointed.
If you try to upgrade to the full version through the in-game interface, it will take your money, but you will not receive the full version. The in-game menu will claim you own the full version, but that's a ruse. You will still be locked into the free
Just want to try...
Fairly simple puzzle. Well executed.
The game claims to have 56 levels, but that only applies to the full version. This version only appears to have 12 which are all exceedingly easy...
Knizia's take on sudoku, nice puzzle game.
