I’ve been feeling less then stellar the last couple days. Not because I’m sick or have a case of the winter blues, but because I’m starting to question my very intellect and problem solving skills. What might you ask would cause an intellectual person like myself (Tongue placed firmly in cheek right now) to dwell on such dark and interpersonal thoughts? Well… the short answer is Squarepeg Game. Once you try it I think you’ll understand. Squarepeg Game is a new iPhone/iPod Touch app created by FatAttitude Ltd. Their description of Squarepeg Game is:
A modern twist on traditional peg puzzles; players must get shapes down holes to finish each level. A simple premise with increasingly complex logic!
Increasingly complex logic is definitely the key part of that description. Like I said before I consider myself a smart guy but there’s no doubt that I found Squarepeg Game to be challenging, entertaining and down right mind addicting! There you go… it’s caused me to coin a new phrase… Mind Addicting. Perhaps this is just some of my OCD coming out but I just can’t let something go until I do it right. Unfortunately for me that meant I basically couldn’t put Squarepeg Game down. The mixture of quick level game play with ever increasing difficulty kept me glued to my iPod Touch like a burr on a donkeys rear-end.
The premise is quite simple which is the deceiving aspect to this game. Similar to a peg puzzle you have to find the matching shape to fit in the matching hole. Sounds simple right? We’ll there are allot of other variables that get thrown at you in Squarepeg Game. For one thing, you not only have to use shapes but also colors as guidelines for a successful match. Also the orientation of a shape can be very important. There are unique features like spinners that will turn a shape to get them in the correct direction and also gates that have to be opened by one shape in order to get another shape completed. For each level there are multiple shapes that need to be dropped into their corresponding holes but there is also an ever increasing complexity in the mixture of other factors that needs to be logically approached to be successful.
I think FatAttitude LTD should be given major props for creating what I find to be a fun, addicting and unique game for the iPhone and iPod touch. To start you can try the game out for free! That might be the best news here. Try it out for yourself and see if you like it. Once you inevitably do become addicted you can then choose to purchase more levels directly from within the game. Give it a try today and download Square Peg!
