joyeAsteriskTwinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder how I can get you without overlapping any shapes I've already made? Not much of a song, but it does make Asterisk a soothing puzzler from Vivern Games.

In each level, you're presented with a field of different shapes such as pentagons, circles, and triangles, and a whole bunch of red stars. By clicking and holding on the other shapes, you expand their edges to capture stars. So clicking and holding on a circle makes an ever-increasing circle, and the same with the other shapes. The goal is to clear all the stars on the level. The catch is that you can't have any shapes overlapping each other, and you can only use each shape once. To maximize your score, try to capture the shooting stars that randomly float through the level, and complete the board as quickly as possible for a time bonus.

With its tinkling music box soundtrack and simple design, Asterisk is easy on the eyes and ears. Since there are only 20 levels, this is more of a Zen, stress-relieving coffee break game than something meaty to really get your puzzling hooks into, but sometimes that's exactly what you're looking for.

Play Asterisk

Anyone notice there aren't any asterisks in this game?

The second time I played there were 25 levels.

Not bad... but somewhere shortly after level 5 I had got the hang of it, and then the difficulty curve flattened out totally. Which annoys me.

People, you are sooo funny.:) Do you really think that the asterisk is only a (*)?
Read more clever books, ok?

Something happened slightly off screen in Level 16 and I got a huge score. As a result, the border around Level 16 is more bold than the outlines of the rest of the levels. Maybe there's some trick you have achieve in each level to unlock the five extra levels?

Asterisks are distinct from the five-pointed stars that appear in this game. So, before you show up and snootily correct people, you might want to make sure you're actually, you know, correct, first.
