You click on the beginning block of a certain color, and drag a path to the finishing block. It's very basic and simple, but it gets more complex when more colors are added, as well as when conjunction blocks are added that can have multiple paths go through them. I only got a couple hours of fun out of it since it's incredibly redundant, but if you're bored or want to exercise your brain a little bit, LYNE isn't a bad place to start. It has a very simplistic and sleek design, which isn't hard on the eyes. Also, for an asking price of $2.99, I can't really complain much. I've paid more for games that are much worse. Very fairly priced, fun concept, a little repetitive, kind of gets boring quickly.… Full Review »

There are one to three colors of tiles, including two special “starting tiles” for each color. In addition, there are tiles which correspond to none of the three tiles, but instead have 2-4 holes in them.
The purpose of the game is to draw a continuous line from the starting tile of each color to the other starting tile of that same color, while, between all three colors, running through every single tile on the board, and filling up every single hole on the board. Every colored tile can only be run through once, while the tiles with holes in them may be run through a number of times equal to the number of holes in them.
The game is played on a square grid, so each tile adjoins to up to eight other tiles. Every level has a unique setup, and the game has an enormous number of them – 650 levels in the main game, plus 1-3 daily puzzles which are released on a daily basis, and which are of variable difficulty.
Some people become really enthusiastic about this game, and there is some sort of secret cipher/puzzle hidden beneath the various daily puzzles, but I never really got into that aspect of the game. Instead, I simply solved the puzzles. The puzzles are, on the whole, fairly decent, but the game is basically one of those “standard puzzle games” – the puzzles are mechanically interesting enough, but they’re not so interesting that they’ll fascinate most people. Some people get really into them, just like some people get into crosswords, but for most people this is just something they’ll periodically sit down and beat a set of puzzles on, and then leave alone for a while.
At that, it is decent, and you’re likely to spend 20 hours or so solving all the puzzles. After that point, you’ll likely have had your fill of the game, but if you haven’t, you can keep playing various daily puzzles pretty much indefinitely.
It is what it is, and it is decent at what it is. If you’re into simplistic but potentially quite challenging puzzle games, this might be up your alley. If that sort of thing isn’t your thing, though, you can really skip this and not be missing anything.… Full Review »
