Simple at first, gets challenging but stays fun

This game was a joy to play. The design is clean and simple, and it starts very easy but quickly becomes challenging. It stays interesting, though, and I was actually thrilled when a new set was added.

What’s really interesting is that there are internal rules you learn, where sometimes you’re matching up triangles on top of each other to figure out how it goes, but other times you’re trying to find where they fit side by side. It forces you to try different things to find solutions, which keeps the gameplay from getting stale.

I wasn’t expecting to like the game so much, but I’d gladly pay for more levels. I’m replaying the ones that are out now. Thanks for making this charming little game!

Great Game

This game is super simple in theory but offers a good bit of challenge in practice. It’s quick to pick up and easy to jump into for a minute or two. It’s well worth the money and I worked through the currently available puzzles in about a day, a few minutes at a time.

You’re given a static base layer and, currently, up to 4 layers to move and spin into place.

The most difficult puzzles are ones without a main color to anchor onto. Zebra was probably the hardest one for me even thought it didn’t have the most layers.

I found it most helpful to clear the field and work top layer down, especially in later levels.

My only criticism is how fiddly the rotation can be. It feels like the layers have a bit too much inertia and spin; they’re just as difficult to get spinning as they are to stop. I was hard for me to get layers lined up exactly. That said - the game has a proper amount of wiggle room in the solution to counteract this. I’m just a perfectionist and really wanted every piece exactly in place.

Overall, well worth the price and I had a good bit of fun with it.

Hi Baubear - Thanks for the thoughtful review. I will definitely take into account you control inertia comment. Hope you keep a lookout for my next big update in about a week. It will include 10 all new 6-layer puzzles. I’m glad you enjoyed Layer Up

Maybe 3d objects, animals etc

I haven’t played this yet but the concept is fascinating. As I was looking at the video, I envisioned a maybe possibility of doing this in 3 dimension. You would have to be able to turn layers 90 degrees etc., and/or flip the layers to reverse them for right or left side fittings. Maybe down the road a game like that could be designed???

Hey Rd- I love that idea. May need to make a “Layer Up 3D” as a sequel 😉. Thanks for playing and your feedback
