Kontrast turns minimalist drawings into short intriguing puzzles

Kontrast is a short and unusual puzzle game available now on iOS and Android, eschewing traditional design to present you with stylish illustrations and simple challenges focused on playful experimentation.


Each of Kontrast's seven stages is a monochrome abstract illustration, moving in a subtle rhythm; a light fixture swings to and fro, cloaking areas in shadow, a geometric constructure rotates and tumbles, among other elements. Your goal is to guide a ball through these odd drawings, but the challenge is figuring out how to actually accomplish that goal; tapping and dragging on parts of each drawing reveals parts that can be moved and manipulated to create a path. Discovering the secret interactions of Kontrast's levels makes for a short but unique puzzle experience; the single-sitting game can be completed in five to ten minutes, longer if you want to soak in the soundscapes and atmosphere of each stage

Part clever puzzle game, part experimental art, Kontrast is available for $0.99 on the App Store and Google Play.
