Fun and Challenging But Not Enough Variety

This is a fun game but it the appeal doesn't last very long. The object is to make all the blocks in row either all black or all white. This is done by drawing a continuous line through various blocks side to side and up and down so that the blocks reverse their color. If you go through a black box, it turns white and visa versa. The better you are at planning your route, the more rows you can get in one go.

The rows continue to be added and if you don't clear them quickly enough, overflow at the top (like Tetris) and you have failed.
There are some variations - smaller puzzles that you have to figure out how to clear in one try, the ability to make your own puzzles, but I found it went from easy to very difficult too quickly and I failed fast. There is an option that allows you to practice without overflowing - it just waits until you've cleared enough and then fills more in. But that becomes tedious.

Moderately fun, not so much my style.
