  • Summary: Ichi is an easy to play but challenging one button puzzle game. Don't be deceived by the game simplistic look, it’s a braintwister for sure! Collect golden rings by rotating objects, using teleporters, breaking blocks and more. If that isn’t enough, the game includes a level editor that allows you to create your own levels and share them with anyone around the globe!

    Ichi started as a challenge for Jay van Hutten to develop a simple, cute and fun one button puzzle game. Almost a year later Stolen Couch Games took over the challenge and co-redeveloped the game for mobile devices.

    Features:
    - Fun and original one button gameplay
    - Over 50 brain-twisting puzzles
    - Catchy music
    - Built-in level editor
    - Hundreds of user-created levels
    - Game Center support

    Clever, clean and devious in its design, ichi by Stolen Couch Games pulls no punches when it comes to its puzzling gameplay.

    Unless there's some grim subtext I've not managed to pick up on, that is. I guess you could say this whole situation is... puzzling. To add to the mystery, "Ichi" is the word for "one" in Japanese, and the game is very much a one-button affair. Could that be the link? I leave that mystery to you.

    The main challenge with Ichi isn't so much solving a puzzle - with the tricks at your disposal, solving puzzles becomes largely trivial. The real difficulty comes in solving the puzzles in as few taps as possible.

    Ichi is a simple and adorable puzzler for all ages that relies on the magic of pen and paper.

    It's a sparse recipe that makes for a sometimes infuriating, but always compelling, puzzler which is spiced up by the inexorable progress of your dot.
