Review Mr. Square

Brandon Girod
9.4Excellent
Fun gameplay, level editor, replayability
Touch input isn't always responsive
Don't let the smiling face on that square tile fool you, Mr. Square for Android is a puzzle game that is more difficult that it leads you to believe. Each level is a new floor that you need to paint over. The problem is that you can't cross a floor that's already been painted, so you need to find a way to navigate through each floor so that you can paint every tile without double tracking.
Each floor will get progressively harder, but the first few are just a walk in the park. You'll learn the basics of the game, which basically consists of swiping in whichever direction you need to go. Here is my first problem with the game: swipes don't always register, so I often find myself just swiping in a general direction until I eventually get to where I need to go.
Every level has preset paths with objects that you'll need to navigate around. It was probably level 7 or 8 where I ran into the first puzzle that caused me to restart. Initially, I believed the game was just targeted towards children, but that level knocked me on my butt, and it only got harder from there.
There are over 85 levels to play through, and you'll collect coins as you play. Coins are currency (big surprise) that you can use to buy one (or more) of the 35+ skins that are available. Skins are relatively cheap, too, so you can pretty much unlock them as you go.
One of the game's other biggest selling points is its level editor. You can design your own level that can be shared with friends, and play through levels created by others. To me, this is the ultimate level of replayability and brings a lot to the table as far as mobile games go.
Mr. Square checks almost every check box on my list of what makes a mobile game good. The aesthetic is fun, gameplay is really engaging, and there is plenty here to keep a player invested in the long term.
