About

LYNE is a minimalist puzzle game where the player has to connect geometric figures. Connect blocks (these can be square or triangle) to other blocks of their respective color to pass the level.

Gameplay

The goal is to connect the same colored shapes with non-intersecting lines. Depending on the difficulty of the level, there is a bigger network on which to do this, and more color sets to connect. It is a fairly straightforward title, but what makes it replayable is execution quality and unusual puzzle-solving experience. There are no timers, no enemies to kill, and no penalties for making mistakes. The puzzles are simple in the beginning but as time passes they become more complex. In a while, the player faces more colors, shapes, geometrical figures, lines. Lyne has several pre-made puzzles (650+), so it does not run out of levels too soon. Also, the game also offers daily challenges; they're called procedurally-generated puzzles. It also supports multiple languages.

Key features

The game mechanics are easy to follow. The player might get stuck on a puzzle, but every one of them can be solved.
The interface, in general, is smooth. The sound effects are string together in a pleasingly melodic fashion; they are soothing and quiet. The graphics and the music are designed to calm the player; the colors are soft and pastel.

LYNE reviews and comments

Pros:-Very many Levels (plus daily Extra Level)-Very pleasant and quiet Atmosphere-Acceptable price/performance-Very passive Music, Which fits reflection-Cleanly UI-Can get very tricky Http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1329344629 Cons:-No http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1329345194 conclusion: In LYNE you have to link the same-colored targets, whereby you have to be careful that all Surfaces are used, otherwise the Level cannot be reached. Some Fields also have 3 Connections, but they cannot overlap. What is particularly pleasant, however, is that by Clicking the Mouse you can easily reset Connections. LYNE is a great and simple Puzzle Game overall, which shows that even simply knitted games can be Fun. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1329344284

Per letter as Achievements Simple principle Kontra repetitively clearly designed for smartphone/tablets LYNE is a nice, little Puzzle Game for In Between. The Mechanics are quickly learned with the first Level and the Level Of difficulty increases at a moderate Pace. Once you understand the Patterns, it is only a Matter of Practice to apply them through the Levels. Running The Game on a PC, though, is quite an Overkill. Control and Play itself are obviously designed for Use on Smartphone or Tablet. A PC can easily do more here and offers As a Platform possibilities for much more complex Puzzle Games, which remain interesting in the Long run. For a few Laps of LYNE on the Train or Bus, the Purchase of the Adroid app is certainly better invested money than the Steaming Version. A Recommendation is therefore limited by me for the Steamversion, who wonders at this Point why my Review is indicated as positive: Letter achievements. You just need them:)

Simple Principle-Heavy Tasks LYNE is a very minimalist puzzle game In which the Player has to work his way through a total of 650 more serious Puzzles. Game Principle: A Level consists of about 5-20 ' Stones ', which are divided into different geometric Shapes. The Aim of the Game is simply to connect all the same Shapes, but without the Connecting lines overlapping Or a Stone not being integrated into the Chain. (If you want to know more about it more closely, you should watch a video for a Moment, the Principle should be clear quite quickly ...) Technical Implementation: The Interface and The level Design is very minimalist, as already mentioned, so there is actually not much to say here: The User interface is attractively designed, the Control Is very intuitive and works well and The Sounds are very discreet and well chosen. Verdict: LYNE will definitely be Fun for all Friends of Puzzling, Knobeling and Thinking, but is a bit tough in the Long run. However, this is no longer tragic, LYNE is just a Puzzle Game for in between and also does really well in this Role: Small Price, daily Newly generated levels and great Puzzle fun.
