"A work of Art"

"...its character, art style, and terrific gameplay justify the price. Mondrain can rest in peace knowing that his iDevice game has been transformed into a 5-Dimple work of art."

✭✭✭✭ 4 stars "Mondrian is a great game injecting loads of personality, and style into a genre that usually is just associated with blue blocks."

TouchGen.net

"...a challenging and visually pleasing puzzler brought to you by Piet Mondrian...anyone who downloads the game is in for quite a few hours of brain-tingling puzzles."

✭ FANS ✭

"I just wanted to say that having played through to almost the end of Brazil now, I find this a brilliant game. Really hard, and therefore thoroughly rewarding when you DO actually beat a level. And I (strangely) love it when I am busting with pride at having beaten a level and good old Piet says words to the effect of 'Well done, but actually you're cr*p. I could do better than that, and I'm dead'. Lol!"

"This is absolutely superb - I really love the game. ... Plays really nicely, extremely polished. I love it."

"...This game is definitely one of the harder puzzle games out there, so anyone up for a tough challenge should pick this one up."

✭ ABOUT ✭

This beautiful modern art puzzler may seem easy. Just slide squares of color to solve the "paintings". But by the end of this game, the puzzles are about as difficult to solve as modern art is to understand!

But don't worry you won't be alone. The ghost of Piet Mondrian will be with you every step of the way to help or to chastise you with his wicked sense of humor.

Slide colored squares to make the finished "paintings." Special squares make solving even harder - squares with a required move count, squares that change color, and squares that slide right through the matching colored ones.

✭ FEATURES ✭

- Game elements never seen before in a puzzler like this

- Undo any move

- Every position is saved

- Replay any puzzle to try for a better score.

- Play your own ipod music

Travel through a dozen world locations and solve puzzles for money and the satisfaction of restoring abstract art!

Mondrian brain drain

:
Based on the works of the famous De Stijl artist, Piet Mondrian, this unique puzzle game has the player creating symbolic representations of these rectilinear masterpieces in as few moves as possible. The components of each painting are broken down into colored squares that must be swiped into position in a set number of moves. The player is then rewarded with money, based on the number of moves used and the time it took to solve. This money, in turn, allows access to new areas of a geographical map that display where other paintings have been “hidden”. This is the only way to advance, which may present a problem for some players, because the puzzles can be quite challenging. By challenging, I mean stuff-your-head-in-a-blender challenging. Die-hard puzzlemeisters will love this to death, but I think it would have been accessible to a greater audience, if the difficult curve would have been flattened a bit (although an opt-in hint system midigates this issue somewhat). Several types of special blocks are present on the painting to help or hinder your progress. Static black blocks allow you to maneuver your pieces into place, counter blocks have a counter that displays the exact number of moves that must be used, and fiendish grey blocks switch to the color they last touched, just to tax your brain even further. The graphical presentation is very clean, just like the artwork it is derived from, which is quite impressive. There are humorous cut-scenes shown between locations, spoken by a lively representation of Mondrian himself. The whole package is clever, polished, and very challenging; a true brain-burner.

Update: Now with optional timer and unlocked levels. Excellent.

5/5 stars

A masterpiece

:
Challenging and unique puzzles is what the iDevices are all about and Mondrian does not dissapoint. First, it has an exquisite presentation based on the artist's style. Mondrian himself guides you through the toughest puzzles, even helping you out when stuck. The levels themselves are quite hard, but the joy you derive when solving one, is of the highest caliber. As others have stated, you will probably have a hard time solving them all, but it's completly worth it. Give it a try and get ready to embark in one of the most challenging journeys on the iDevice.

5/5 stars

Mondrian: A Work of Art!

:
I wasn't sure about this game as it is difficult to grasp the puzzles and gameplay from the screenshots or even the online video, but grabbing it up for the snow day sale was a great decision as this has turned out to be one of my favorite puzzles games.

It's beautifully presented, funny, and brilliant. The puzzles will have you scratching your head as the ghost of Piet Mondrian will have you laughing out loud with his caustic remarks and chastizing.

Well worth the price, get this game now if you like tough puzzlers and beautiful visuals!
