Game Review: Lyne

Lyne is a game available on Steam and iOS/Android for $2.99. I really enjoy this game a lot. I bought it on Steam and would like to preface by saying that the entire time I played it I kept telling the hubby that it felt weird playing on the computer, it feels like a game that is much more suited for iOS although it does have Steam achievements and trading cards so that’s something. However, I’m thinking I may buy it for my phone as well and just play it on there.

Lyne is a puzzle game (I tend to play a lot of puzzle games). Their slogan is

Deceptively simple, Infinitely complex.
LYNE is a minimalist puzzle game that will knot your brain as it calms your soul.
Connect the shapes, Fill the board.
Lose yourself in the interflowing paths of LYNE”

Overall, a very calming game. The colors, backgrounds… everything is very zen, very relaxing. The hubby was watching me play while he was laying down not feeling well and he was having fun watching it and if I got stuck he was enjoying pointing out different ways to try.

The whole premise of the game is just connecting shapes. If you’ve ever played Flow or Flow Free on the iPhone, this reminds me of that. You are drawing lines from dots to dots connecting the main shapes. There are intersections where you sometimes must have two or three lines pass through it to make it count. There are different colors and you can’t cross lines. It’s a logic puzzle, and has something like 650 levels so it can keep you busy for a while!

All the reviews seem to be overwhelming positive, so I’m not alone in liking it apparently! Just a fun game and nice to sit down with when you’re stressed. If you are looking for a calming, relaxing puzzle game, I would recommend it… especially for your phone or tablet (unless you like the steam achievements and stuff… it is also good for computer).

A lot of people say this is a geometry game, which scared me because I stink at math… but for me playing it, it had nothing to do with that. So, I don’t know. Maybe it’s secretly math, but I liked it anyway!
