Reminiscent of games like Hook and the recent Up Left Out, Unpuzzle takes the block-sliding puzzler and challenges you to unmake each mess of blocks while managing a number of different mechanics.
Unpuzzle starts simply, asking you only to slingshot blocks off the main jigsaw structure. The initial rules means you can’t release blocks if their path is…blocked or if they‘re connected to more than one piece. But Unpuzzle quickily begins introducing new mechanics that build upon that early ruleset.
Soon you’re dealing with blocks that require a certain amount of pieces to be removed before you can interact with them, blocks that can only slide in certain directions, blocks that teleport, blocks that can rotate their pegs, blocks connected in a single group, and many more variants. While these mechanics make those later levels quick tricky, you never have to fret over a timer or move counter while solving.
