Description

Square Valley is a unique, world-creating puzzle game – with the goal to find the most rewarding positions for tiles and edges (such as roads, rivers or city walls).

You play as the Spirit of the Valley, tasked with creating unique lands that meet the needs of the citizens. To achieve this, you will need to place tiles such as houses, trees, farms, animals, and much more! Each tile you position is unique in its characteristics and will be scored accordingly. You'll also create roads, rivers, fences, and more to connect all your tiles together in a meaningful way.

However, your task is not as simple as it sounds. You have limited control over which tiles you can place where. Each round will feel like a new challenge, so you'll have to plan ahead to succeed.

You'll play in three different chapters with a total of 45 levels. With each level you advance, you'll be offered more tiles and have more difficult obstacles to overcome. The journey starts with setting up fences and walls and then moves on to building plateaus, lakes, and even islands! It's no easy task, but we think you'll rise to the challenge! Once you've completed the levels, you can play them again to improve your score and compete in the leaderboards.

With the puzzles randomly generated, it's fun to replay each level. Whenever you finish a challenge, you will have created a unique little world to be proud of. If you are interested in even more random experiences, take a look at the sandbox mode, in which you'll be given a unique level depending on your preferred game settings.
Good luck, Spirit of the Valley – go forth and build spectacular little worlds!

Great Puzzle Game

Very solid, relaxing but challenging puzzle game with solid art and music. The developer stated Carcassonne was an inspiration but I think the logic/gameplay is more similar to a deck builder with roguelike elements where the “deck” is the 9x9 board. Goal is to look for synergies and handle randomness best way you can.

I agree with the other review(s) that stated tiles need more definition. I too had no idea Cherry Orchard would be a -20 enclosed. Even the glossary, which uses pictures to define things, could be a bit more detailed with some of the games’ other terms like “connected,” etc. This would not stop me from giving such a good game like this 5 stars.

Fantastic, a steal at the price

To my surprise, I got many hours of interesting and enjoyable gameplay out of Square Valley. Dev was responsive and fixed a couple of issues along the way. Goal descriptions are occasionally fuzzy or not clear and could use some standardization, but that doesn’t stop this from being a great experience. Would love more options to play past the main campaign and I can’t wait for more!

Excellent relaxing puzzler

This game is both relaxing and exciting at the same time. I will start it up for a chill moment to listen to the music and ambiance, and then get pulled in right away with the struggle of the puzzle.

The latest update with the undo and skip buttons takes this game from a 4star to a 5 star . There were plenty of times i accidentally put down a building and wished for an undo. And the skip *chefs kiss* what an awesome addition to the whole puzzle. You’ll be constantly wondering which turn would be the best use.

The challenges will keep you coming back to see what new buildings and scoring scenarios are in store. If you love puzzle games, I highly recommend this one.

Thanks devs for making such a great little game!
