Reviewed by:Sylvia | Aug 28, 2012
Gua-Le-Ni is not just a normal puzzle game. It stands out for it’s one of the few titles about taxonomy in existence. Playing the game can help the players optimize their performance and dexterity under the pressure.
There are many appealing aspects in this game. Game players should deal with strange scrap-paper creatures running across the screen. By using blocks at the bottom of the screen, players arrange and twist the blocks around to match the physical properties of each paper creature that scurries across the screen. To change the order of the taxonomy blocks, players are required to pinch the block using index finger and shift it around. In fact, this process can be a little awkward when under the pressure. It is challenging and needs some adjustments.
Gua-Le-Ni is a simple game which is packed with a lot of features that make it hard to resist playing. The update of game itself has two distinct elements. One is the new animal parts to combine together. The other is Poetry mode, which comes with various new illustrations to help tell a new story with the various chimeric creatures that Gua-Le-Ni conjures up. Of course, both of them are interesting.
It is a really a challenging enough! You will be a fan of it and surprised at first and conquered it over time. So download it and have arty now!
*** For a few days, to celebrate the new update, you can play Gua-Le-Ni for 0,99$!!! ***
Gua-Le-Ni is an innovative action-puzzle videogame with a philosophical twist!
Taking inspiration from an essay of David Hume's the game prompts the player categorize and feed an odd series of combinatorial beasts that will walk their ways across the screen. This can be achieved by twisting, moving and rearranging toy-blocks to form the correct "name" of the animals. For example, a TI-STER-STER is a beast composed by three modules: a tiger's head and two lobster body parts. Some animals prefer fruits, some meat and it's up to you to feed them the right food. Different food combination lead to different effects that can render the beasts longer, shorter, more or less fast and valuable.
The relentless movement of the combinatorial animal walking across the screen urges the player to quickly manipulate the cubes and re-compose the beast’s name. At the beginning of the game, this task is almost effortless, given the slow pace of the beasts and their simple composition. The parading beasts will, however, grow more complex… And so will their names! Luckily, the player can slow down the stampeding animals by means of different types of food. That will grant him or her more time to arrange the cubes correctly.
The result is an unique and bizarre idea, with an equally unique and bizarre game, that will challenge the player to match the right cubes with the right beasts parts with increasing tempo.
Featured in New & Noteworthly in Japan, Switzerland, Austria and Germany, 'Gua-Le-NI, or: The Horrendous Parade' is the first biometric action puzzle game for the iPad.
