CrossCells reviews and comments

Kurzwei-going Game. Most Puzzles are relatively boring. Especially at the Beginning you have the Feeling of Arbitrariness and the Puzzles are solved rather intuitively, which can be frustrating, because one finds no Approach in itself to solve the Puzzle logically (which certainly may exist, but is not obvious at all). Towards the End, puzzles are rather Puzzloated, because you can and must act logically on what you exclude and what you don't. That's fun, too. Here there is no error counter or Similar, which gives an incentive to play as well as possible. All in all, the Hexcells games are far from being run. Still, I recommend the Game, as the Approach and Handling of Numbers is different for everyone.

CrossCells has very few Game Mechanics, but cleverly combines them into interesting Puzzles. Unfortunately, I can't compare it to the predecessors from the Hexcells series, as it's been too long since I played them. But also taken on its own, it offers good Entertainment. Most Levels can only be solved with Logic. For some, however, I had to choose one of several Options at one point or another. However, if you are cleverly aware of this, in the Event of a Wrong Decision, one usually arrives at a Contradiction very quickly and can backtrack. For €3 you get 50 Levels here, among them, however, there are also some very minimalist Tutorials. So in Total it's 40 real Levels and about 4 Hours of Puzzle fun. Since most of these Levels are really good and offer Interesting Solutions, this Game has earned a Full Price recommendation for Puzzle fans.

CrossCells is another Game of thought from Matthew Brown after the Hexcells series and Squarecells. It is very different from its Predecessors, where it is important to find the right Corner of the Puzzle again and again from a Variety of Information where you can determine more fields. At CrossCells, you have to count much more into the Depths in order to be able to exclude Alternatives, because they do not end up. The Degree of Difficulty fluctuates. I have to confess my old Brain sometimes doesn't manage to calculate all the Alternatives to the End. In such Cases, I have to help myself with an Assumption and see if, the Puzzle then rises. This is a permitted Evidentiary Procedure in Mathematics ("Vote sent!"), but for me personally slows down the Game pass. Verdict The Game is solidly made but does not get to Hexcells ran. I just love being able to say from the front Step by Step exactly why a Field is selected or deactivated. You should have mathematical Talent to fully enjoy it. The paid £2.39am Is fine.
