Review Scalak

Brandon Girod
8.8Excellent
Extremely clean, minimal design, unique sound design that interacts with gameplay, introduces new concepts as you play
No significant shortcomings
The developer that brought you PUSH, Zenge and Art Of Gravity, is back with a new game. Scalak for Android is a brand new puzzle game that will have you matching shapes, finding patterns, rotating things, using spatial awareness and harnessing your critical thinking skills.
Booting up the game for the first time will take you to one of the most visually appealing, yet totally simple screen I’ve ever seen. It was simply two squares with a nice gradient background. There were no instructions, but I knew what I needed to do: Fit the smaller square into the bigger square. So I did. Then I was presented with a few more shapes. My initial fears were that a game based on such a simple concept couldn’t possibly challenge anyone enough to keep them entertained through 90 levels. Then I made it a little further.
The game really picks up when it throws non-traditional shapes and has you fit them in tandem with each other so they can then fit into other shapes. The game really challenges you to push your perceptions in order to figure out the puzzles. It’s a hard game to find faults with, though there could definitely be a bit of variation in the music playing.
Scalak is a game all about the details. It’s got great sound design - you can create little jingles as you place pieces. The puzzles are challenging pretty early on and the aesthetic is pretty fantastic overall. The game is thought provoking rather than frustrating. It’s a no brainer buy for $1.99.
