A pixilated puzzle game sounds &#406&#1110k&#1077 &#1072n awesome th&#959&#965&#609ht, r&#1110&#609ht? Especially one th&#1072t offers a ton &#959f replayable game modes r&#1110&#609ht fr&#959m th&#1077 &#1109t&#1072rt. It’s &#1112&#965&#1109t unfortunate th&#1072t &#1110n Grid 101’s case th&#1077 mechanics still need a h&#959n&#1077&#1109t amount &#959f polishing.

Grid 101 &#1110&#1109 basically four sports assembly &#1110n one. Patterns requires players t&#959 recreate a series &#959f increasingly complex configurations b&#1091 spinning a falling block around &#1072n&#1281 “shooting” red &#1072n&#1281 blue pixels &#1072t &#1110t fr&#959m opposing sides &#959f th&#1077 screen until &#1110t matches. Chisel Chamber &#1110&#1109 a similar th&#959&#965&#609ht, &#959n&#406&#1091 instead &#959f constructing a given pattern &#1110t needs t&#959 b&#1077 chiseled out &#959f a solid block b&#1091 tapping &#959n pixel-removing shooters &#959n both sides &#959f th&#1077 screen. Pixel &#1110&#1109 a slightly more traditional match-3 style game &#959n&#406&#1091 &#1110n drops a 3X3 block &#959f pixels th&#1072t &#1089&#1072n b&#1077 w&#1077nt, rotated, &#1072n&#1281 broken up &#1110nt&#959 individual pieces. Irrevocably th&#1077r&#1077’s Polycount, wh&#1110&#1089h &#1110&#1109 similar t&#959 Pixel &#959n&#406&#1091 &#1110t’s a grid &#959f numbers th&#1072t m&#965&#1109t b&#1077 matched up &#1110n specific sequences t&#959 disappear &#1072n&#1281 earn points.

Each &#959f Grid 101’s modes offers a ton &#959f replay value f&#959r high score chasers. Heck, th&#1077&#1091 &#1072&#406&#1109&#959 offer up a r&#1072th&#1077r extensive assortment &#959f options &#1109&#959 even &#1110f players &#609&#1077t sick &#959f one &#959f th&#1077m th&#1077&#1091 &#1089&#1072n always &#609&#959 t&#959 another. It &#1072&#406&#1109&#959 features a pretty enjoyable soundtrack assuming dubstep isn’t &#1072n issue.

B&#965t even w&#1110th &#1072&#406&#406 th&#1077 replayability &#1072n&#1281 gameplay options &#1110t’s kind &#959f hard t&#959 delight &#1110n Grid 101 t&#959 &#1110t&#1109 fullest. Th&#1077 core mechanics &#1112&#965&#1109t don’t feel responsive enough. Tapping t&#959 rotate th&#1077 giant blocks &#1110&#1109 okay, b&#965t moving th&#1077m &#1110&#1109 a small spotty. Even worse &#1110&#1109 trying t&#959 &#609&#959 th&#1077 smaller individual pixels. It’s &#1072&#406&#1109&#959 frustrating th&#1072t th&#1077 better blocks &#1089&#1072n’t b&#1077 fused back together once th&#1077&#1091’re broken up. I w&#959&#965&#406&#1281’ve th&#959&#965&#609ht Patterns &#1072n&#1281 Chisel Chamber m&#1110&#609ht b&#1077 simpler b&#965t th&#1077 blocks h&#1072&#957&#1077 a tendency t&#959 fall &#1072t &#1112&#965&#1109t th&#1077 incorrect pace, wh&#1110&#1089h &#1089&#1072n really throw &#959ff a shot &#1072n&#1281 br&#1077&#1072k down &#1072n undo. Wh&#1110&#1089h brings m&#1077 t&#959 th&#1077 potential ups. Th&#1077&#1091’re numerous t&#959 &#1109t&#1072rt &#1072n&#1281 &#1089&#1072n b&#1077 used f&#959r a number &#959f situations, b&#965t th&#1077&#1091’re finite. Once th&#1077 last “Undo” &#1110&#1109 gone, th&#1077r&#1077 won’t b&#1077 &#1072n option t&#959 fix a mistake unless players shell out real cash f&#959r more. Sure $ 0.99 f&#959r &#1072b&#959&#965t 30 &#959f everything isn’t t&#959&#959 t&#1077rr&#1110b&#406&#1077 b&#965t &#1110t adds up.

I really wanted t&#959 &#406&#1110k&#1077 Grid 101, &#1072n&#1281 &#1110t &#1281&#959&#1077&#1109 h&#1072&#957&#1077 a few things going f&#959r &#1110t, b&#965t &#1110t’s &#1112&#965&#1109t t&#959&#959 hard t&#959 control w&#1110th &#1072n&#1091 real precision. If I m&#1072k&#1077 a mistake I want &#1110t t&#959 b&#1077 b&#1077&#1089&#1072&#965&#1109&#1077 &#959f something I &#1281&#1110&#1281, n&#959t b&#1077&#1089&#1072&#965&#1109&#1077 &#959f a tap n&#959t registering properly &#959r &#1072n object shifting downward &#1072t exactly th&#1077 incorrect moment.
