    I don't get how too play and it don't show u. I don't even know what the goal is

    Fun to try to figure out the pattern, but no real sense of reward. No high scores, no points, no achievements. There is a timer for the level, but it doesn't seem to affect anything. Even when you finish all the levels there isn't a congratulations screen or anything.

    Actually, use it to teach weaving skills + dexterity. Thanks. Super fun.

    Good challenge.

    This is a fun little game. Some reviewers have marked down the game because they couldn't figure it out. This is unfair for a puzzle game. The instructions and tutorial provided are brief, but adequate, and figuring out the rest is half the fun. My only criticism of the game is that once you recognize the general solution pattern, solving even the hardest of the levels becomes a mechanical exercise. Still a fun little game, though.

    Fun app once you figure out how to play.

    Natalie sums it up well- once you figure it out it's a good challenge. If you imagine a circuit board with the wires fixed at the ends, your goal is to make the pattern as simple as possible. That means the straightest lines and the fewest number of crossings.

    Unclear what it is I'm supposed to do.

    I love this game. At first, I thought it was too difficult because the explanation they give in the tutorial is a tad vague and complex. The simplest tip I can give is that you should practice on the first few levels and learn the patterns of untangling the strings properly. These patterns repeat and will help you solve the harder puzzles (like, seeing a certain junction of strings and knowing which position to move it to in order to access a new junction). I just beat the 67 levels they had and I hope they update more. Hope this review helps!

    Great to play when I'm bored.
