Squarescape is a sliding block puzzle game from Jacob Koch. Working with just a few basic colors and a minimalist visual design, the simple title challenges you to move a square around the screen in an attempt to make it to the exit. Of course, strategically placed blocks, stoppers, orbs and many other obstacles stand in your way, so it's not like you can just waltz on in there and start the end of level celebration.
If you've played a sliding block puzzle you'll feel right at home with Squarescape. Swipe the white square to send it off in any direction. It continues to move until it collides with a wall, at which point you can make another move. There are colored orbs you'll need to carry to the goal, adding another layer of complexity to the sparse layouts. There are also stop-pads, death spots, and a handful of other obstacles you'll need to use as the game progresses.
Attractive in its simplicity, Squarescape reels you in with its no-frills design and attention to smooth gameplay. There are 100 levels to work through, each one free from ads and other annoying mobile monetization attempts. It's just straight-up retro puzzle goodness, through and through.
