App Review: Linkish Is a Fantastic New Puzzle Game for iOS

Linkish is an incredibly fun and unique puzzle game for iPhone and iPad. Developed by Anthony Alan Garcia, it’s a brand-new game that was recently released to the App Store.

My initial thoughts when I first opened the game were that it looked sharp, well-designed, and I fell in love with the graphics and animations. It’s not often that I’m so strongly impressed by an app’s appearance, but Linkish reminded me of one of the apps you’d see in an iPhone commercial.

The idea behind Linkish is simple: connect the dots by drawing lines. Sounds easy, right? Well, initially it is. Each dot has a number at the center which tells you how many lines need to connect to it. In the beginning, you’re making fairly easy patterns that you can figure out rather quickly. However, as you move into the higher levels, things start to get challenging.

You get to battle your way through 400 levels across a variety of level packs, and each pack is locked until you complete the previous pack by earning all of the stars available. Essentially this means you have to beat every available level, as you receive only one star no matter how fast you complete it (there’s no numerical score).

You can optionally use hints if you happen to get stuck on a level. Each hint equals one line solved for you, but I noticed that hints won’t work if you are in the middle of solving the puzzle and you already have lines drawn. It seems like hints are meant to start at the beginning of the puzzle, so keep this in mind if you try to use one.

One of the things I really enjoy about Linkish is that it allows players to quickly navigate between levels without having to go all the way back to the main menu of the game. Controls to go to the previous level, restart the current level, and move forward to the next level (if you have completed it) are located right at the bottom of the screen, which is pretty convenient.

It’s not very often that I find it tough to put a game down once I’ve started to play it for a review, but Linkish had me hooked in no time flat. I thoroughly enjoy the sharp graphics, animations, and overall gameplay of the game.

There are ads that pop up occasionally when you’re moving onto the next level, but it’s nothing intrusive or annoying. I certainly wouldn’t mind paying $0.99 for an upgrade to remove them, or even for a full version of Linkish; it’s certainly worth the money.

As far as whether or not I’ve seen games similar to Linkish, I’m happy to say that it’s the first of its kind that I’ve personally encountered. I’m a huge fan of innovative apps and games, and this is certainly one of them.

If you’re looking for a uniquely challenging and visually stunning game, you can’t go wrong with giving Linkish a try. I definitely recommend it!

Linkish requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
