Description

Squares is a puzzle reflex game for PlayStation Vita that will be available in early 2015. The objective is to turn grey all the blue squares, while dealing with different kinds of squares before the time goes up. The game will feature 80 levels as well as a level editor for creating your own challenges and share them with your friends.

History

We started making a prototype of Squares back in 2012, during the Global Game Jam. That's how we ended up creating our studio and after making some small games we released Squares Trials for mobile devices in late 2013. In 2014 we got into the PlayStation Incubation Program and decided to make a new and updated version of Squares for the PlayStation Vita, that will come out in April 2015.

Features

  • 91 levels that will challenge your reflexes.
  • Simple but rewarding game mechanics that use the different features of the PS Vita.
  • A level editor for creating your own challenges and share them with your friends.
  • A fabulous electronic soundtrack.
  • Minimalistic design.
