Welcome to our third edition of PuzzleNation App Reviews! Today we continue our quest to explore the world of puzzly games and apps for your tablet or smartphone!
Our resident App player and puzzle fiend Sherri has another intriguing game for us today, so without further ado, let’s dive into her review of Point 2 Point!
If you enjoy pure puzzle games, then Point 2 Point is the game for you. This iOS game is essentially one puzzle with varying levels of difficulty.
Normally, I prefer games with more graphics than this one, but the simplicity of it lured me in. The “point” of the game is to connect all the points in each level without crossing the lines. Each point has a numerical value that represents the number of connections you must make. Each collection of levels is called a pack.
I played the introductory pack, and it kept me engaged. The game started off very simply, but as the levels progressed — some with movable dark blue points — they grew more and more difficult. For each completed level, you earned 1, 2, or 3 stars based on your proficiency.
While I prefer games with more puzzle variety and a greater emphasis on striking graphics, I was drawn into this game. I wanted to match the points and earn 3 stars for each level, and I nearly did that! Some of the levels, even in the introductory pack, were really tricky! This game really works your brain and makes you think. You really have to puzzle out the best way to connect the points.
Ratings for Point 2 Point:
- Enjoyability: 3/5 – it isn’t a spectacular game but it is interesting and really makes you think; its joy lies in its simplicity
- How well puzzles are incorporated: 5/5 – it is all about puzzles. You have to puzzle out how to connect the number of points to get to the maximum number of stars in each level.
- Graphics: 1/5 – the graphics are simply lines and points, but the simplicity doesn’t distract at all from the game
- Gameplay: 3/5 – it’s a deceptively simple game that really challenges your mind, but it really is just one puzzle repeated several times. There isn’t much variety, but the increasing difficulty keeps the game fresh.
