A Quick Look at 2D/3D Puzzler ‘Monospace’

iPhone developer Nonverbal today released Monospace [App Store], a 2D/3D block-elimination puzzle game for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Monospace is a puzzle game where the player needs to think in both 2 and 3 dimensions. The goal is to collect a certain amount of white cubes in each level. To do that, the 3-dimensional level can be reduced to a flat image and then turned back into a spatial object again. Different possibilities will result from different perspectives.

Monospace is an intriguing challenge that requires the player to visualize the game’s playfield in both two and three dimension.  It starts off rather simply, but quickly increases in difficulty as the levels advance.  The game fatures 64 levels divided into four difficulty stages.

I’ve spent some time with the title and find it to be a rather clever offering that puzzle fans will likely enjoy.

See the developer’s gameplay video to get a better idea of what the game is all about.
