    Due to the level of difficulty and its minimalist theme, Splice is going to be a bit of an acquired taste. Some will prefer more handholding and more character. For those who love to experiment, however, this is the game to gravitate towards. It's a purist's idea of heaven.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    An effortless and elegant puzzler, Splice is a wonderful expression of the freedom the App Store can offer.

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

    Considering its graphics, sound, and gameplay, few apps offer the elegance that is Splice: Tree of Life. Four dollars is a small price to pay to expand one's way of thinking.

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