Mini Metro

Mini Metro

Summary

Mini Metro is a strategy simulation game about designing a subway map for a growing city. Draw lines between stations and start your trains running.

It was first created during Ludum Dare 26, a game development competition in which you only have a couple days to create a game that fits the given theme. The developers liked their prototype and decided to develop it further.

Review

I love Mini Metro. It’s a brilliant game idea that is executed well. It is fun to play, the achievements are challenging, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite Steam games.

It’s currently available as an Early Access game and will be released soon. Hopefully they’ll add a Seattle map. <3

LYNE

Another game I got during the Steam Summer Sale is a puzzle game called Lyne, available for only $0.74.

LYNE

Summary

LYNE is a minimalist puzzle game in which you connect the shapes to move on to the next level. Each shape has to be used a certain number of times in order to complete the level.

There are hundreds of levels and a new puzzle gets released every day, so there is plenty of content to keep you entertained.

Review

LYNE starts off very easy, but this simple game gets more challenging as it introduces new colors and mechanics. I really love the minimalism and the soothing audio. The game is beautiful, relaxing, well executed, and challenging.

I highly recommend picking it up (especially while it’s on sale). It’s also available on Android and iOS and while I haven’t played either of those versions, I can tell that it would do really well as a mobile app.
