Description: Solve complex puzzles, explore hidden temples, escape deadly platforms and revel in the joy of flight as you restore the Musiki’s stolen rhythms! Inspired by tribal music, art and architecture from across the African continent, Rangi is challenging yet comfortable to play. Close your eyes. Find your courage. Search for the path through the doors of the temple. Discover lost secrets, perhaps even your own. Pause and meditate, but do not let the Matata’s tricks deceive you. There is danger in their beauty and violence in their artifice.
Let the Musiki be your guides, hear their song in the resonance of the world. If you are confused, do not be frustrated. The world is confusing. If you make mistakes, patiently correct them. There is no shame in learning from missteps. If you feel you can’t go on, look around. Perhaps the Musiki are trying to show you something. Move like the wind, flow like the water, be as strong as the stone beneath your feet. You will find your way.
Review: While Rangi’s graphics are beautiful and simple, some of its puzzles are not easy to understand and devilishly hard. But I enjoyed myself so much that the hours flew past I soon had to recharge my phone! While some people will fly through this game is well under an hour, most of us will struggle on at least some of the puzzles, giving the game good longevity. It also has to be said that this game wouldn’t work as well if you had free movement, the teleport spots are there for a reason because they don’t give too much away. Rangi is well worth a download for anyone into their puzzle games.
