Challenging, modern graphics, unusual game play
Steep learning curve, unbalanced difficulty
Primitives Puzzle in Time for Android is an unusual puzzler of a game. This one will really make your brain sweat and keep you thinking as you try to solve unusual geometric puzzles in a given time limit.
Primitives Puzzle in Time is highly intriguing and exceedingly difficult to master. The puzzles are unusual and unlike anything you've likely encountered before. A geometric shape appears onscreen, along with a series of stars and a countdown timer. The objective is to slide your geometric shape through the maze, collect all the stars, not get stuck against anything and make it to the counting clock before time runs out. sounds easy, right? Wrong! This practice levels take little skill or brain power, but as the game progresses, you might have smoke shooting out your ears while your brain overheats trying to figure these puzzles out.
The graphics are very modern looking and invite play. I found it all very interesting to look at, and even more challenging to solve. Every level brings something new and original. The animation is nicely done and the app as a whole has a top quality presentation.
Maybe I just really suck at this game, but I found the difficulty to be unbalanced. Some puzzles were exceedingly easy, while others were just nonsensical. The game seemed to lack a consistent progression in difficulty and just jumped back and forth between super easy, and super hard. Or again, maybe I just suck at this.
Primitives Puzzle in Time is highly challenging and thoroughly unique. If you like puzzle games, this one has something original to offer and there are lots of levels to keep you awake at night and drive you nuts. Fun!
