Or: ‘In Monospace, No-one Can Hear You Solving Puzzles”. Something like that.
Available from today on the iPhone/iPod Touch, Monospace is a rather nice idea. Created by ‘Faber’, players must slide a blue block around a cube by making it pass through all the white blocks, and hence complete the level. The cube is spinnable with the flick of a finger and it looks simple enough.
However, there’s a catch – some of those white blocks seem un-reachable! Ahh! Calm yourself, child, for this is where the magic comes into play. Double tapping the screen causes the 3D scene to collapse into a 2D square – meaning blocks which were technically apart from each other a second before may now be positioned directly next to each other! Ahh!
What starts off as quite an easy concept to follow soon becomes nice and mind-boggling and makes for a great puzzler.
Check out the trailer below and then consider giving it a purchase from the iTunes store for a measly $1.99. Yes that’s right – $1.99! Honestly, you couldn’t afford NOT to miss it for that price.
