"4.5 of 5 stars. Connectrode is everything I look for in a puzzle game!" -

"...Gorgeous in design and both smooth and challenging in play. …You’ll never tire of this epic game of thought-provoking strategy." -

"Connectrode is easy to pick up and hard to put down." - The Austin Chronicle

Connectrode is a pure puzzle game of simple but elegant strategy. Connect the chips to clear them from the board - but with each connector you place, beware blocking off parts of the board from yourself!

The game has no time limits - play at your own pace. Once you master the gameplay, try for a high score and discover new depths of challenge and strategy - and land a high score on the Game Center leaderboards.

The "boards" you play in Connectrode are randomly generated - you'll never run out of new challenges. Post your score on a board to Twitter or Facebook, and friends can use your link to play the very same board - they may even beat your score and send a challenge back to you!

Connectrode features a gorgeous ambient soundtrack by David Pencil (known for his soundtracks for Penny Arcade: The Series on PATV). This game was developed completely independently by a small team in Austin, Texas - we appreciate your support of indie game development!

3 stars with ads, 5 stars without.

I bought this game and now it's been updated with ads. Please either take the ads off for people who previously purchased the game, or at least let us buy out of the ads. The second option really isn't really fair since I've already paid for the game, but times are changing and I'm sure updating the game wasn't cheap. So I'm willing to help out. But I hate the ads that are constantly at the bottom of the screen. Please let me buy out of the ads for a reasonable price. I do love this game, but I do hate ads.

Pass On This Ad-Riddled Game

July 30, 2017: I've had this game since it was introduced for the iPhone and I paid for it. I wanted to support the developer as he was an independent. I updated my reviews for years with each update from the developer. I love the game and the game play, but...

What I find interesting is when I updated my review a week ago, it was removed from the App Store. I'm guessing it's because I included the fact that the developer added ads to the game and I gave it a negative review. I guess if you're a developer and you don't like negative reviews you can complain to Apple and have them removed. Funny, because my review was 80% positive, but I dinged the game on the new ads and the fact that you now cannot turn off the sound, EVEN IF YOU SILENCE THE SOUND ON YOUR PHONE!

Pass on this game. You can't remove ads and you can't silence it. Good game play isn't worth that.

I like the game but!

I really like this game but I can't play it with the sounds on and the slider for the sounds does nothing!
I'd be happy to pay for this game but I need to silence it or it going to go.
