simian.interface | Hands-On

By , on January 6, 2014

Tilt-based puzzler simian.interface is a game with blocks and no tutorial. 

While that sentence might not sound like a shining recommendation, I consider both of these things to be a plus when it comes to games.

You see, when a developer can eschew a hold-up-to-look-up text tutorial in favour allowing players to learn through exploration, it's generally a sign that somebody on the team has their head screwed on right.

Also, blocks are cool. Obviously. 

I went hands-on with simian.interface earlier today. You can't see me doing any actual tilting in the video below, so just picture a bald guy handing upside-down from a bannister waving an iPhone around like he's trying to swat a particularly aggressive bee from his nose.

The game will hit the App Store this Thursday.
