"“But after a few levels things pick up pace. The brain becomes engaged. The memory cells spark with activity. Your fingers smoke from the frenetic tap-mashing required to keep pace and beat the countdown. The “challenge” comes less from the game and more from overestimating your own reflexes and faculties.’But this game is so easy!’, you’ll cry after losing one of the later levels for the 5th time in a row.

"The most peculiar thing started to happen the more I played Strange Masks. I realized that I was soon looking beyond the masks and at the bigger picture. The developer says of the game that it’s a puzzle game – a basic match-the-colors by memory – but that it also combines elements of dungeon crawling. Have you seen the game? It’s just a series of masks being flicked through, right? That’s all I saw before jumping in and giving it a go, and even in the first few introductory levels it remains just that.
But when the formation, number and diversity of the masks stacks up your brain instantly switches to thinking of the puzzle map as an environment – in my head I was thinking of each mask as a room.When you notice this happen you’ll appreciate the marvel it brings, as it reminds you just how amazing our brains are. "

“The appearance of the various faces which combines both the features and easthetics of the Greek theater and traditional Japanese No theater, makes the extremely precise level design all the more difficult and fascinating at the same time: they reward the mindful player but punishes the distracted one.”

Game review by The Indie Shelter (in Italian ) : http://www.theindieshelter.com/strange-masks/

“Strange Masks is [...] the weirdest yet most enjoyable experience you can get for 4€. It's a game that blends puzzles with orientation and memory. It would have been yet another good puzzle game but it's gameplay and minimalist design, unbelievably rendered, give to it both a strange and mesmeric appeal.

Score : 8/10
