"Swipe Away"

Reviewed by / May 06, 2014

Create lines, fill the grid and match the colors. Is it simple? No way

Welcome to Strata, the new and addictive puzzle game featuring minimalist yet fascinating graphics.

Choose your difficulty level, which basically translates into bigger grids and definitely means higher challenges.

How to play: your objective in every stage is to fill the whole grid, which basically presents a series of colored squares. Swipe and create colored lines across the board, making sure the top color matches each square.

First of all, we have to say that Strata's interface is nothing short of amazing: swipe away and access all the game's features. The graphics are also wonderfully smooth, and the game presents no bugs or errors, it works just flawlessly.

But the most noteworthy element is perhaps the game's fresh idea, which manages to create something original, simple and completely appealing.

    Clean and minimalist graphics. Simple to learn, but difficult to master gameplay. My only complaint is that the tutorials are slightly difficult to understand at first. Some of the instructions could be explained a little more simply, but once you get the hang of it, it is a great way to challenge the mind. Involves proper ordering and spatial reasoning.

    Do you know why Celtic & viking art has intertwining ribbons and knots? Its because they believed it would lure evil spirits to get occupied for hours trying to unravel their puzzling entanglement, leaving the people well alone while busy in their puzzle entrapment. Get this along with Kami and Lyne. Will never regret it. ㄖㄧㄖㄣ

    Gorgeous Mondrian-meets-Leger-on-pastel-paper puzzle game with chesslike chin-stroking complexity. Murtherfore, I'm a musician and find that the soundtrack is *not insulting* (which is good). An exit button would be worth an extra star, though.
