    Category: Games
    Price: Free, Version: 1.0 (iTunes)

    [​IMG] Description:

    ★★★★★
    AN ENTIRELY NEW KIND OF GAME -- NOW FOR THE iPAD
    ★★★★★

    "Emblem presents a form of a puzzle game that has sadly not yet been seen on the iPhone before--or really anywhere else--and it's so incredible, it's genius."
    - Examiner.com

    Be the first to experience a puzzler engineered from the ground up to be like nothing you've ever played before!

    EMBLEM challenges players to think laterally, building patterns of connection and meaning through the rearrangement of symbol-tiles on a dynamic board.

    ✓ FIFTY levels of ADVENTURE across FIVE WORLDS

    Follow the story of famed archaeologist Catacomb Kat as she delves beneath the sands of the Egyptian deserts, searching for treasure and the secrets of the ancients.

    As the adventure progresses, Kat fills in her symbol dictionary, uncovering fresh insight into the hidden mysteries of global culture and expanding the depth and challenge of play.

    ✓ HILARIOUS CHARACTERS

    Ditsy archeologists… considerate tomb-robbers… bored gods of the underworld… and a sardonic blue cat.

    In-game dialog will never be the same again.

    ✓ GLOBAL COMPETITION

    Challenge players across the world for dominance in Competition Mode.

    Solve puzzles faster and in fewer moves, then submit your scores to our global high-scores leader-boards and watch your standing soar!

    ✓ STATE OF THE ART PRODUCTION VALUE

    3D art and dynamic lighting brings the mysterious world of the tomb-raider to life as never before seen on the iPhone. 3D positional audio and hand-drawn interface elements add the final layer of polish. Features the amazing music of the underground sensation The Haserjian Brothers.

    ★★★★★
    THINK LIKE YOU'VE NEVER THOUGHT BEFORE
    ★★★★★

    Memory… pattern recognition… forethought… strategy…

    It's time you changed the way you see the world.

    It's time to play EMBLEM.

    Well I played the first Free Ten levels, after that you have to purchase the full 50 levels with symbols.

    Its ok but seemed more inclined for a 10 - 15 yr old. As it progresses the puzzles get harder, only wished that the AppStore showed more than just one tile preview for the game. At least I would have had more of an idea what the game was before installing it.

    The dialogue within the game is cheesy at best and had grammar errors, or got too wordy instead of just a simple walk through with practice puzzles or perhaps a slide show showing how the pieces form shapes etc.

    The graphics are ok as well, not what I would class HD but for cartoon it was ok. The game just needs to be more clear that it is a puzzle solving game, not some adventure 3d perspective walkthrough or 1st person view while exploring, as the description almost leads one to believe.

    Its time consuming as well once you get into the larger puzzles, but the price should remain free until they add better features or lighten up all the chatter from the characters in the game.

    The puzzles were interesting to sort after say level 7, before that not much thinking involved. But Im sure after buying the full app to get the 50 levels they would be harder puzzles as they progress and more intricate shapes are formed.

    Thanks I can now see why this would never be a killer game on the iPad.
