Editors’ Notes

This chilled-out title has a rhythm all of its own. By dropping tiny spirits into place, you’re not just solving the puzzle – you’re adding beats to the jam. Sit back, pop on your headphones and enjoy the relaxed grooves as you work your way through some delightfully animated levels.

Puzzles Rewarded With Beats

It took me like two years to play through all the levels just since I kept wandering off to find easier puzzles. But this app addict, who usually just plays games to death for a few weeks then cleanses my phone of them.... I always kept it around. It was great for the occasional thinker and I was determined to play all the levels. It’s genuinely fun to figure out without having any gimmicks that make it more addicting or leave you wanting more. At any point and especially the end of the puzzle, you can just dance to the beat! I feel like I can even listen to music with a more discerning ear, having now put together the elements of a complex rhythm myself. Super cute, sleek art style, super varied tools and solutions that are introduced in intuitive ways. No instructions necessary. I’ll probably keep it around and play through all the levels again! Such a sweet perfect game! Thank you creators!!!

Just Wow

I usually never give games 5 stars but this game deserves it. It’s beautifully made and worth every penny you put into it.
It gets difficult, but not so hard as to be frustrating, and there aren’t any ads getting in the way of your puzzles.
The ambiance and music is absolutely gorgeous, I love the entire concept wholeheartedly—it’s super relaxing and helped calm down after a panic attack. Everything about this game is just soothing and nice, from the unique, simple, and friendly graphics to the beautiful background sounds and music that plays behind the rhythms you create. I highly recommend this game for anyone who wants something calm and fun to play when they’re feeling stressed!
