    Rules! is that sort of lightning in a bottle that only comes along every so often. I’d rank it right up there with Threes!, and not just because both games so gleefully abuse exclamation points.

    Rules! is one of that game that you can’t simply quit: it’s amazing to look and to play, engaging and challenging, even brutal if your brain isn’t trained enough. Follow the Rules has never looked so good.

    It's certainly worth checking out, but be warned: it might make you feel your age, even if you're not all that old.

    Rules! provides the unique experience of further developing hand-eye coordination and memory skills in each person who plays it, while giving the added bonus of plain-old having fun.

    The game is endearing in its simplicity, and despite the limited gameplay it fits snugly into that folder of games that can be relied on to eat up idle minutes at any time. It won’t be for everyone, but those who tend to get enchanted by good things in small packages will adore it. [Episode 7, September 2014]

    A delightfully constructed memory test that grows in complexity and appeal the deeper in you go.
