I often enjoy simple games more than complex games. Grid is the latest time killer that I’ve found and became quickly addicted to.
Grid is a spin off of the old style circuit games where you have to get all the pieces connected in just the right order to form a circuit. The exception is that Grid requires you to connect every connector to some other connector. Each “grid” only has one solution, so you have to get it just right in order to move on to the next level.
This doesn’t sound too difficult, but there’s a great twist. There’s a central power point that feeds the circuit. Only pieces that actively have power can be rotated. This means that if you make a mistake, you can disable a piece and leave yourself with no way of sending power to it again.
There is a way to restart the puzzle if you have messed up too much, but fortunately, there is an undo so that you can reverse previous mistakes.
In order to add an extra layer of challenge on top of all of this, you start off with a base level bonus each time you start a new puzzle. Each time you rotate a piece, this bonus goes down by one point. If you use the undo, you lose two points. So, not only do you want to complete the puzzle, but you want to do it in as few moves and mistakes as possible in order to maximize your score.
My final score was 68671. See if you can beat me.
