Editors’ Choice

From the developer that brought the superb board game Carcassonne to iOS comes a fiendishly tricky puzzler that’ll test your memory and your reflexes. To clear each set of colorful tiles, you’ll need to follow specific rules in order—like removing odd-numbered tiles first, then ones with animals—before the clock runs out. Each super-short level is more tense and demanding than the last, making it that much more satisfying when you clean the board and progress to the next challenge.

Very cool, clever, fun game

I appreciate that this app was just updated, with a new mode too, and is such a fair price with no ads or IAP. It’s also good on storage and battery.

The design s gorgeous, the UI smooth and intuitive. It’s very easy to pick up and play.

I wanted something that would be a fun, quick game to play when I have a few minutes, but not something mindless. This strikes a great balance. Also I purposefully wanted something to exercise my short-term memory, and this definitely does stretch your brain, while still being charming and fun.

Great job, developers, and thank you for monetizing so fairly with no ads.

I highly recommend this game. Besides being fun, it would be good to help children learn memory skills, for adults who want to keep their brain sharp or work on improving memory, or anyone who wants a chill but challenging game when you have a few free minutes. I’m so glad I bought it! I don’t know how well I’ll do, but it’s fun even if you can’t get too far. Just go with it and have fun!

Very Addicting

It requires time and patience to have a complete bing of playing it for a while, but if you only have time to play one round it's still amazing. Like a previous review stated, it is a bit expensive for what it is, but there are multiple game modes, and who knows how many levels are actually available. I think the price could be dropped a bit, but either way it's a great investment of time, energy, and money.
