Sput­nik Eyes

Falls just short of bril­liance

Mac Format - - RATED -

In just a few years, mobile games have gone from time-killing cu­riosi­ties to must-have ti­tles. Puz­zler Sput­nik Eyes comes close to the lat­ter, but falls just short of ad­dic­tive great­ness. In each level, colour­ful one-eyed crea­tures sit on a grid of lines, and you’ll match each Eye with its coloured base us­ing sim­ple taps. As you progress, lev­els add chal­lenges like more Eyes and colour-coded tracks. This throws a wrench into the game­play, and you’ll be re­warded for com­plet­ing each level un­der time and in as few moves as pos­si­ble.

Where Sput­nik Eyes shines is its pol­ished pre­sen­ta­tion— pretty but min­i­mal vis­ual de­sign and calm­ing am­bi­ent sound. While the game­play it­self is cer­tainly fun, it never quite reaches the level of mad­den­ing brain-teas­ing that puz­zlers should pro­vide. Sarah Le­Boeuf

Sput­nik Eyes is a fun puz­zle game but lack­ing in chal­lenge and depth, de­spite gor­geous de­sign.
