Easy to learn, hard to master

The game steadily adds complexity, to keep it from being overwhelming at first and boring later on. There's a medal system, like Angry Birds has stars, to let you know how well you are doing; there's lots of bonuses and tricks to the game.

The audio on my iPhone 6 is entirely too quiet; this started with update 1.01. They added a headphone recommendation to the loading screen but I should be the one to make that choice.

Simple, but surprisingly deep and addictive.

I recently visited the nonPareil Institute, and got to play a few levels of Lightwire, their newest release. It seemed simple at first, but became more complex as the levels went by. I liked it so much that I bought it the next day, and have been playing constantly. A combination of visual and math puzzle, the game's challenge lies in racking up as high a score as possible to earn medals. A really fun and visually impressive game!

Fun but frequently crashes

Fun game experience marred by crashes that occur upon completion of every level. My son keeps playing it despite the glitch though. Update, after deleting and reinstalling, the crashing has been eliminated.
