Quell HD is a puzzle game released by Fallen Tree Games.
The idea of Quell is you are give a puzzle area to solve, you have a water droplet that needs to collect all the pearls on the level. The droplet can only move in one direction until it is stopped by an obstacle. There are various things placed on the level to stop you such as spikes, teleporters, one way blocks and blocks that merge to get rid of them.
Gameplay wise, you are given all the time in the world to complete the puzzle and can reset it at any time. You are given a limited number of moves to complete the level, you can go over this, but will not be awarded the hint point.
Quell HD offers over 80 levels to solve so should take some time to complete.
The game is controlled by a swiping the the droplet in the direction you wish it to travel.
The in-game graphics are basic, but functional along with some nice still artwork and the water droplets. The music is relaxing.
This is the same as the iOS, which is currently free on iOS.
On the upside:
- Well designed puzzles.
- Relaxing gameplay.
- Nice in game hint system.
On the downside:
- Need to realise that you can go off the sides of the screen if your path is not blocked.
- Some levels you will need those hint points.
Overall, I really enjoyed this game, it is a nice game to unwind to. I have played it because on iOS and the game has lost none of its charm. If you love your puzzle games this is well worth a look, especially as unlike other puzzle games it gives you time to think. There is a free version of the game to try around 20 of the puzzles if you are not sure if this is for you or not.
