Broken Lines is a puzzle game with infinite, algorithmically generated levels. The object is to unscramble the tiles so that the lines connect into closed rectangles. The levels get progressively more difficult and difficulty can be increased by skipping levels. There is always at least one possible solution for a level, but usually there are many. In situations where the player becomes stumped, there are options to either peek at a possible solution for 1 second or restart the level partially solved. The player spends a "peek" to use either of the previously mentioned assists, and a new peek is earned for every level completed without assistance. When stumped on a difficult level with no peeks left, the player can replay an easier level to earn another peek or opt to generate a new puzzle on the existing level.
The goal of this game is to provide challenging puzzles that never get old. Because the levels are algorithmically generated, they are never the same twice, even when replaying a prior level. If a player is getting stumped at difficult levels, they can still have an enjoyable playing experience on prior levels. I very talented player can continue through the levels as long as they're able, because the levels are infinite. While the algorithmic puzzles do provide a degree of randomness, the ability to reach high levels is largely based on skill rather than luck. This game is targeted at players that enjoy a challenge.

I'm guessing that most of us have, at some point in our lives, played the phenomena that is the Tetris game. For the first 100 or so times we play it, it's a fascinating and engaging puzzle game that manages to test our skill and challenges our reaction times whilst helping us to pass the time quite nicely. However, after a while, it just turns into a bit of an addiction where all you really want to do is to beat the system. I hate to call it boring but there is a limit to the amount of times I can play it without wanting to throw my device against a wall. Haha!
So, for all those folks out there who, like me, want to try a different type of game, here's a new one for you. Broken Lines is a puzzle game for Android that has an infinite number of levels and uses algorithms to ensure that you never play the same game twice. The object of the game is to unscramble random colored lines so that they connect into closed rectangles. Sounds simple doesn't it? Naturally, it ain't quite as simple as it first seems and, while it may look easy, the game will test your puzzle solving powers over and over again. Believe me, it's not an easy game to master.
Broken Lines' never-ending levels get progressively more difficult as you play but, if you think the level you are on...
