Can you connect the dots to reach the end of this review?
LYNE is a puzzle game about connecting various points. Each level introduces new mechanics or tricks, such as diagonals or multiple passthrough connectors. The only rules are you cannot connect a block twice, and you can’t cross a line. The game is controlled via the mouse, using left click to select a block and drag a line to others connecting them all.
LYNE has a wonderfully ambient soundtrack. It’s barely noticable, but not because it’s boring. It fits the game well enough to not distract you from the puzzles. It is a wonderful little piece of the game.
Overall, I’d give LYNE a grilled cheese rating. It’s a wonderful ambient puzzle game that doesn’t frustrate you. It has levels that will have you trying over and over, but it’s so simple that you can’t get mad at it. I recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing puzzle game.
