This is a punishing pyramid-pushing puzzler that's even more challenging than saying ‘punishing pyramid-pushing puzzler’ out loud.
The mechanics are simple enough: you begin with a pyramid on an empty grid. Swipe it and it moves to the next space, or tap on a corner to 'pin' it; if you do, then your swipe makes the pyramid pivot around that point. All you need to do then is move the correct coloured pyramid to the right space.
It sounds easy, and it is…at first. Moving one pyramid around is easy. Moving entire blocks across increasingly tricky levels? Not so much.
We found ourselves baffled even in the early levels, and as you progress through more than 130 stages of ever-increasing fiendishness there’s a very good chance that the people around you will learn some terrible new words. In later levels, you might start to think that flipping real Egyptian pyramids around might present less of a challenge.
This is not a game for the easily defeated: Yankai’s Peak is a puzzler for people who like their games to really give their brains a workout. If that sounds like you, we – ahem – Sphinx you’ll love it.
