New to the App Store comes Dédale, a puzzle game all about mazes.
The name stems from the French word for maze and it’s that attention to detail that is evident throughout Dédale.
The aim of the game is to guide a butterfly around the maze without stepping on a space more than once. 100 handcrafted levels are included so there’s a steady learning curve ensuring that things become gradually more difficult rather than overwhelmingly so. Alongside that is a calming soundtrack that enhances the tranquil feeling of the game.
It all fits the meditative focus perfectly and creates a game that lends itself to relaxing gaming sessions perfectly. There’s no sign of leaderboards or stars to represent success, it’s just about enjoying the experience.
While some might crave a bit more action to their puzzle games, those after a serene experience will no doubt adore Dédale.
It’s out now, priced at $0.99 and is an Universal app.
Despite all the grandeur of increasingly impressive graphics and in-depth storylines, sometimes all anyone wants is an addictive and testing logic game. That game could well be LinkDots.
Based upon an Ancient Egyptian puzzle and the Pharaohs’ pre-occupation with geometry, LinkDots is all about placing dots in the right place. It sounds and looks a lot like Tic Tac Toe or even Connect Four. There’s a lot more to it, however, and players will find themselves swiftly tested by the three different difficulty levels, or against their own friends thanks to the four player multiplayer. Players must think quickly while also working out the best move to succeed. It’s a great challenge.
For those looking for a new logic game to test the grey matter, LinkDots looks set to be an ideal game to play. It’s available now for the iPhone priced at $0.99 or for the same price for the iPad.
Check out the gameplay video below to see what’s involved.
