When the weather starts getting cooler, you might dig through your closet to find extra layers of clothing to put on. When it starts getting warmer again, you've got to find a place to store all your extra layers. Whatever you're doing with your layers, Magic Layers is a jigsaw-style puzzle by Lysis Games where you've got to rearrange layers of shapes with bizarre properties to reproduce a picture. It's a challenge that's fun to play and comfortable to wear all year long.
On one half of the screen is a picture made up of overlapping shapes. Your goal is to reproduce that picture on the other half of the screen by dragging a handful of transparent-ish shapes into place (the game is generous with snapping shapes into place, and often gives you dotted outlines as a guide). That "-ish" is tacked on there because while they often seem clear, they usually have peculiar properties that only become evident when they're stacked on another color. Red and blue don't necessarily make purple in this game; sometimes they make green, or yellow, or even clear once again. That's part of the challenge of Magic Layers. You've got to discover how the layers interact with each other in order to stack them all correctly and make a matching picture.
There's a certain odd sense of observation that becomes crucial when solving some puzzles that doesn't come up in many other jigsaws. For example, you might see a bunch of seemingly identical transparent circles, but they interact with each other in a very specific way, and only one of those circles will mix with another shape in a unique way. While some of the later levels ask you to apply several layers on top of each other in one of what feels like a billion possible combinations, there's often a hidden logic to putting them in place that makes the puzzle quickly solvable; you just need to discover that logic to succeed.
It is unfortunate that a clever game such as this is very colorblind-unfriendly (maybe use simple patterns?). Also, the working space you're given to shuffle layers around in is a bit small and you might accidentally lose one piece underneath another if you're not careful with how you're stacking your reserves. But these hitches aside, Magic Layers is an entertaining puzzle and worth a playthrough once you get your sweaters and swimsuits sorted.
