Graphics & Sound:

GEOM is a vibrant and unique puzzle game that will entertain any puzzle game enthusiast for hours.

While graphics are rarely the primary focus of a puzzle game, it’s always a wonderful thing when they can please your eyes and ears while entertaining your mind. GEOM does just this with its vibrant palette, entertaining animations, and soothing melodies. GEOM does not disappoint in any department.


As with any puzzle game that offers a style of play you haven’t seen before, describing it can be a little tricky. A level of GEOM consists of a field of varying colored line segments, all connected to each other’s endpoints by grey joints. Ultimately in any given stage there are three recognizable shapes on the field: triangles, squares, and hexagons. The player can click on any of these to rotate them clockwise or counter-clockwise.

The object of the game is to have the lines that make up a given shape be all the same color. Since many of the lines can be part of one or more shapes, this is accomplished by rotating the shapes so that you can move a given line segment around the board. When you succeed in having a shape be a uniform color, these identically colored line segments are replaced with random colors and you score points. Complete shapes fast enough in a row and you can score extra combo points.

As an added twist, bonus objects sometimes appear inside squares and hexagons for a short amount of time. If you can complete that shape before the powerup vanishes, you can get things like extra points, time or explosive effects.


As with any great puzzle game, the old clichéd line of “easy to play, hard to master” applies. Getting into the game is one of the simplest things you can do. However, to really master the more complicated maps, which may contain very limited shapes, or be constructed in a way such that moving a segment across the board may take a lot of time, you will have to set up many shapes at a time to be completed as fast as possible in a row. The trickiest thing, at least for me, was turning shapes the direction that maximizes my time. I tended to want to always spin the shapes in the same direction, and sometimes it may be a lot faster to spin them the other way.

Game Mechanics:

GEOM offers many modes of play. Arcade Mode is a series of stages that the player can progress through in a linear fashion. In these stages, you must achieve a certain score in a limited amount of time. Classic Mode is similar, but in this mode, whenever you complete a shape, all the segments in that shape are marked as “cleared”. You must clear every segment in the pattern to complete the stage. Survival Mode is almost identical to Arcade mode, except that you are given much less time and must maximize your use of time increasing powerups to complete the stages. Finally, Unlimited Game is one big giant pattern that you can play with to your hearts content. Just make sure you complete at least one shape every time the “scanner” passes over the stage.

GEOM is a little gem of a puzzle game, and I highly recommend it to just about anyone, but especially puzzle fans. You can download GEOM at geomgame.com.
