- Great puzzle gameplay, hard without being impossible.
- Quirky visuals and sound design fit concept perfectly.
- Plenty of levels with the option of replaying levels for a better time.
- No leaderboard or highscore options available.
Ynth is a deceptively challenging game, that is a must have if you are a fan of the puzzle game genre. This title is worth the current price.

Ynth is a puzzle game where players take controls of Ynth the ladybug as you try to pass through a ghostly marshland to try and return to your family. You must use the various maze pieces to roll through the swaps safely. However, you must also watch for dropping spike balls and other nasties that may drop into the maze and become a hassle for you.
You move Ynth by using the buttons on the side of the screen; two buttons to move and two buttons to jump. Move to the edge of a maze piece and when you use the directional button, you will be able to roll the piece. This means you must navigate the maze pieces in order to keep it rolling to get through the swamp.
The visuals are cute and all hand drawn, which effectively ties in with the games quirky style. The sound is great; Ynth’s footsteps and the various hazards items all have individual sound effects. Players can also enjoy their own music as they have the option to use their iPod during gameplay. This is a single player only game, with no highscores or leaderboard options, but players can replay levels to try and get better times.
Ynth is a simple but great puzzle game for the iPhone. The 61 levels and increasing difficulties mean that players will not get bored by this title. A leaderboard option for best overall times would have been a great addition, but this isn’t a big issue. Overall, Ynth is a fun little title that can be played by almost anyone and offers a fun and challenging experience to anyone who plays.
DescriptionHelp the small red bug Kribl on its way through a deadly swamp. An endless rain of spiky fruits and Kribl's lack of swimming and flying abilities force you to move by tilting chest-like labyrinths left by mysterious former inhabitants.
The rotation of the chests leads to a clever 2d-physics-based game, combining elements of puzzle and platformer games.
With its cute'n'weird graphics style, Ynth might look harmless initially, but solving all puzzles requires serious amounts of both thinking and dexterity. Find the right path through 79 challenging levels in this unique game.
