Description

GlowGrid is a hypnotic, retro puzzle game.

GlowGrid has a very simple mechanic: players must lay Tetris-like pieces onto the grid. The player earns points by making groups of matching tiles, while blocker tiles get in the way of their progress. By earning enough points, the blockers on the grid are destroyed, opening up the grid for further play.

This mechanic of filling and emptying the board gives the game a hypnotic, addictive quality. A carefully balanced scoring system gives the game strategic depth - the player must decide whether keep the grid open by making small groups, or play a riskier long game by trying to make higher-scoring combos.

History

The game originated as a kind of city-building / puzzle mash-up, inspired by games such as Carcasonne and Triple Town. A basic Flash version was released in September 2013, which has had half a million plays and an average session duration of 45 minutes.
