Very nice game, I caught nostalgia when I was a child playing this game on the football field, instead of bombs we had a ball, and instead of a castle and minions, a grid/wall

Convenient one-mouse operation that allows you to take a breath while working.

I liked the idea, with construction, in this game you can even shoot))

A simple game that I figured out in the first minutes of the game.

Retro-style graphics are very suitable for it, it feels like you moved to the 90’s, and you play this game on a slot machine, and there are a lot of spectators behind you

Hack Grid

Hack Grid

Full disclosure: I was a playtester for this game.

In Hack Grid each level has a different setup of pieces and trails within a 4x4 grid (sometimes it’s smaller).

In order to move a piece, it must have a straight line of trails or empty sockets leading to a differently colored piece. What makes the grids interesting is not only the different setups of pieces, but also the way the trails connect between them; It varies from level to level, and sometimes the lack of a direct trail between two pieces can trip you up, if you are not paying enough attention to the trails.

Do you have some free time during your evening? Do you like puzzle games? Are you nostalgic for DOS aesthetics? Great, then Hack Grid is a game just for you!

This is a well-made game. Sure, it’s relatively short, but I think it has just enough puzzles to explore its simple, yet entertaining gameplay. I didn’t encounter any bugs, it runs smoothly. Graphics are minimalistic, very nice, and you can spice them up a little with CRT filter. Puzzle themselves have a right level of difficulty, and you get some new mechanic once in a while, so you don’t get bored.
