Indie games developer Michal Barszczewski has released their minimalist puzzle game, Lines On Sides, as a paid title for iPhone and iPad devices. It was originally announced last week for iOS.
Lines On Sides is an extension of Barszczewski’s minimalist style that they used for their previous mobile game, Cubether. In it, you must rearrange different tiles so they can match the colours of their sides to any other adjacent shapes. When you can manage to sort them into their correct positions, black lines appear between them to confirm you found the correct solution.
Because of the game’s minimalist style, this means there aren’t any tutorials to follow which may be a little disorienting at first. However, they are not completely necessary as the mechanics are pretty simple and not too hard to solve. If you want to see what the game looks like in action, be sure to check out the trailer linked below.
What’s most important about Lines On Sides though is the game’s committed minimalist art style can lead to you enjoying it at a relaxing pace. You can use it to chill in your spare time, completing each stage at your own pace without worrying about anything else.
Barszczewski’s previous title, Cubether, had released for iOS devices last year and uses a similar minimalist style as Lines On Sides does. The gameplay was different though, as you had to move around cubes through a board to match up the colours and create larger cubes out of it. Each shape moved in its own way, so it became a way of experimenting with patterns to make large cubes and find the solution to each stage.
If you’re ready to check it out, you can grab Lines On Sides now from the iOS App Store, where it is a paid title which costs $0.99.
