I’ve played a lot of iPhone puzzle games, and KinWits is the undisputed king of making me feel like a gigantic moron!
The goal is simple enough: move the little KinWits from the start of the puzzle to their respective places at the end of the puzzle. There are two rules, however, that make this game really tough.
a) KinWits will always move in the same direction as other KinWits of the same color
b) KinWits will always move in the opposite direction as different-colored KinWits
Ouch. Add in the fact that each level’s KinWits move as a unit (you can’t move them individually) and you’re in for some really challenging puzzles. Along the way there are squares that will change the color of your KinWits and if you can navigate those properly then you just might make it to the end of the level you’re on.
If you get stuck (and you will) there’s a handy reset button that you can use to start over, plus the funny little sound effects can be turned off if you’d rather listen to your own music while you’re playing.
Troutfly Software clearly put a lot of thought into this game and it’s pretty fun as long as you’re smart enough to figure out how to master the little KinWits. Casual puzzle players like me will find this game really frustrating really fast, but if you’re not a total dumbass and want something different, $1.99 is a reasonable price to pay.
