Developer: Kevin Marais (App Factory)
This is another game on a triangular. grid. In this game, you have to connect the top-left cell with the bottom-right. Ass we have written before, tri grids are quite tricky to work with. On the one hand, you have two types of cells (so you have two sets of neighbor directions, two ways to position and rotate cells, and so on). Furthermore, you also have difficulties when you want to rotate cells, as the center off the cell does not correspond to the center of the sprite-bounding box as is the case with hex and square grids. On the upside, the number of combinations for pipe-like tiles is only 3. For square cells, it is 5, and for hex cells, it is 15.
