Featured Play Store Newbie: Lines & Puzzles [Brain & Puzzle]

We recently featured Four in a Row HD +Riddles by Alberto Hernandez, and he just came out with another one called Lines and Puzzles. It’s a similar game but it’s based on Gomoku. In case you’re wondering what Gomoku is, it’s similar to Connect Four, but you need to get five in a row and pieces can be placed anywhere you want (non gravitational) as long as it’s on an intersecting line (like the picture above). Lines and Puzzles offers some variations like  3-in-line (tic-tac-toe), 4-in-line, or 5-in-line Freestyle Gomoku. You have your choice of themes which include wood, chalk, printed paper, Go-like (traditional Gomoku), or neon for boards up to 15 x 15.

You can play against the AI or against a friend, with your choice of six types of games: 3-in-line (3 x 3), 4-in-line (5 x 5), 5-in-line (7 x 7), 5-in-line (9 x 9), 5-in-line (11 x 11), or 5-in-line (15 x 15). Also just like Four in a Row HD, you can play what’s called riddles, which are partially played games. You are presented a game after a certain amount completed moves. It’s your job to win in less than the given amount of moves so it actually trains you to be a better player. There are over 100 riddles included with the Free version, and another 100 available via an in-app purchase. That in-app purchase will also get rid of the ads.
