A good puzzle game lets you sit back, relax, and get lost in thinking about solutions. “Klocki” is a new puzzle game from the makers of “Hook” that is aiming to be a good puzzle game. The main idea of Klocki is connecting different types of lines to make one single piece on varying boards. All you have to do is tap on one piece, and tap on another piece to swap those two pieces. The process continues until you figure out the solution, and the connected pieces light up when the solution appears.

Klocki introduces variations as you go, so soon you need to space out black tiles, so there’s a gap in between each one. There are new color variations, line alterations, and more changes to contend with to keep the challenge consistent. Klocki includes a smooth difficulty curve, so that the game never feels overly easy or difficult, and instead just keeps you solving puzzles. It’s unclear just how many levels are included, but after a considerable amount of time playing, the levels just keep coming. The best part is that you can truly get lost going from level to level. There are no level breaks, or move count, or anything but the puzzle on screen that then blends into the next puzzle.

Klocki delivers a true zen like experience with the minimalistic design, no interface, and a subtle soundtrack. The levels can blend together from time to time when you’re within a stretch of subtle variations until you reach the next substantial change. It would be nice to have an optional challenge mode with the number of moves restricted so you have to think just a little bit more. The challenge mode would also introduce a replay factor, because as it stands, there’s no reason to replay anything. With that said, there are so many included levels, and it’s very easy to just get in the flow of going from level to level, and lose track of time.

“Klocki” ($0.99, Universal) delivers an immersive puzzle experience that is well worth picking up.
