    If you're willing to overlook a few missing features, you'll soon find that the biggest challenge is leaving your job at ASYNC Corp. to get back to the real world.

    It nails everything a fantastic puzzler should: simplicity, addictiveness, catchy music and overall polish.

    A fantastic puzzle game. It's fun and challenging and pretty much unlike anything else in the App Store. That said, if you're a player who lives for things like achievements and community rankings, then you might want to give this a pass.

    Fans of matching puzzle games should give Async Corp a try. While not treading new ground, it accomplishes good gameplay with flair.

    But none of the modes instill the kind of panic that the rising speed in Tetris or falling ceilings in Bust-A-Move do.
