Trichrome is the "Dark Souls" of arcade-style score challenge puzzle games! The idea is simple, just match tiles up and make large triangles out of four smaller ones. However, you score more points with more interesting shape combinations, so plan your moves carefully -- and quickly! -- because the clock is ticking and the only way to fill it back up is to make more combos. Trichrome is approachable for new players, and many find they can complete a 4 Pure game in less than an hour of practice. But Trichrome is also a challenge for even the fastest, most clever player -- can you break 1,000,000 points, or make 12 Pure? There are 36 achievements to unlock, and three leader boards to gauge your skill: high score, fastest gameplay, and most tiles played. The minimalist visual design, vibrant colours and explosive VFX makes Trichrome a lovely game to watch as and the mesmerizing real-time synthesized multi-channel sound design will keep you coming back for more.
Here's a quote from the review -- "There are many words that can describe Trichrome: difficult, insidious, ruthless, unforgiving – I’m just going to settle with the word “evil”. To say that developer Sean Puckett has created a fast-paced tile-matching game for the PC that tests your ability to think fast is putting it mildly."
I love this.
