  • Summary: Optimized for iPad 2 or newer; iPad 1 users may experience sluggish performance.Splice is an experimental and artistic puzzler. Immerse yourself in its microbial world and start splicing! Every level ("strand") consists of a number of cells that you will need to rearrange into a target structure in several moves ("splices"). Exploration and experimentation are key in determining how the curious little cells react to each other. Predict the sequence of splices you'll have to make in order to successfully arrange each strand. Re-sequence, mutate, and splice your way through this unique puzzle experience, and you'll exercise your ability to visualize sequential series of shapes over time. Solve your way to the final strands and you'll be left with a heady sense of mental accomplishment!Splice is the fourth title out of Cipher Prime Studios, and was the Best Puzzle Game winner of the 2011 Intel Level Up contest.

    The Tree of Life grows on you with each mutation, and Splice is certainly a breath of fresh air.

    Elegant in its execution, Splice : Tree of Life mixes visual, aural and tactile elements to create a puzzler that feels organic to its core - a real gem for fans of puzzle titles.

    Splice is the most immersive puzzle game I have played the last couple of years.

    If the game feels like it's missing depth, it is; but relax and let the music take you for a cell-splicing ride and you'll probably never notice.

    Featuring gorgeous art design, smooth controls, and heady puzzles, Splice is a bit of a head-scratcher that ultimately satisfies.

    As a toy to play with, Splice is a wonderful thing. As a game however, it just lacks that essential moment where you feel that you've made progress entirely through ingenuity rather than random experimentation.
