Platonic Games is a two person team which creates adorable games such as Rainbow Rush, Happy Hop and Sweet Sins. A departure from these type of games featuring cute monsters, Symmetria has been made in the school of slickly designed minimalist games. As the name suggests, the mission of the game is create symmetry by tapping on blocks in the empty half of a grid to complete the pattern in each level. The game is not competitive and is quite relaxing, endowed with the ability to keep you glued to the screen for several levels at a time. If you have played Loop, you will have a fair idea of the pace of gameplay in Symmetria. You would also know how easy it is to just breeze past levels.
Nonetheless, unlike Loop, new obstacles and challenges keep getting added to the levels and soon the zen game turns into something far more dangerous. The game also has a two-player mode where you compete on the same device to create symmetry before the other player.
The level maps are beautiful and are based on various constellations. One thing that might irk you about this game is the frequency of ad pop-ups, but it’s hardly a new problem if you are a fan of mobile games. Unfortunately, even after spending on an in-app purchase to remove ads, you will still be plagued by messages from the developer asking you to rate the game. If you are looking for a game which will really grill you and test your reflexes, this is not it. Play Symmetria if you are someone who likes to arrange and rearrange your bookshelf or make sure all your music is meta tagged properly. Play it to forget the chaos in the world and have some order for once, even if it is only the simulated kind.
