App of the Day: Sun Stones

Sun Stones is a simple, yet peaceful and rewarding, puzzle game with build-your-own-level features on the way.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

I play games to relax, so sometimes a fast-paced game just doesn't cut it. So when I found Sun Stones, I knew I'd found a game that couldn't be more perfect, from the visual design to the ambient flute music to the relaxing, yet puzzling, gameplay. Inspired by traditional Hopi imagery, the idea is to place stones on a board to create an image in as few moves as possible. There is no penalty for taking lots of moves, so you can trial and error as much as you like and figure out how to win those three stars. You get a nice little selection of puzzles with the free trial, too — enough to know that the full unlock is definitely worth it.

Sun Stones for Android (AU$2.80)
Sun Stones for iOS (Free — full unlock AU$2.99)
