Symmetria: Path to Perfection
Symmetria is a fast-paced puzzle game about symmetry. A simple yet challenging exercise for perfectionist minds.
Why did we create Symmetria?
There’s a little itch lurking inside all of us. A little itch that makes us do weird things. Weird things like… avoiding to step on floor tile lines, eating M&Ms in strict color order or becoming mad because that stupid text box won’t align pixel-perfectly.
And… that little itch just LOVES symmetry!
Symmetria was made to render that strange, yet universal satisfaction that produces symmetry as an elegant, challenging and simple game, always handily waiting in your phone for when your little itch craves for a little reward 🙂
