ENDLESS LINES [IOS] – REVIEW (78%)

12 Aug

Endless Lines is a puzzle game released by Bit By Bit Games.

This is a game about creating paths, you need to get as many red blocks as possible to get the highest score when you connect your path to the other side of the screen.

The game is played by sliding the rows and columns to create paths. The longer the path the more points it is worth.

The game has three game modes:

  • Blitz – 60 second to get as many points as possible.
  • Sprint – Select a total score to aim for and then reach it in the shortest time.
  • Zen – No limits, just practice and play.

To make the game more interesting you get power up blocks that effect the game, these include multipliers, locking blocks that cannot be moved and bomb blocks that add to the score.

Gameplay wise the game is fun, with Blitz and Sprint begin fast and furious as you try to get the best scores in the limited time available. I found the 10,000 point Spirit could be done in less than a minute like blitz.

The game is controlled by sliding the columns and rows with your finger.

The graphics are functional rather than flashy. The music is OK, but can become repetitive after a while.

On the upside:

  • A nice puzzle game.
  • Quick and simple to play.

On the downside:

  • Zen mode is a bit of a waste at the moment, it is nice for practice, but just becomes dull. May have been better with no limit, but with some challenges instead.
  • The game lacks a little polish at the moment.

Overall, this is an interesting sliding puzzle game. It is fun to play and is a very good for the more casual gamer who has a few minutes free play. I think the game needs a little more polish in places, but the basics are solid and work well. I look forward to what future updates bring. For now, if you enjoy “pipeline” style games this is well worth picking up.
