If you have played the other installments in the SiNKR series, SiNKER3 is a must buy. Like duh.
Great puzzle game! Definitely give this one a go if you enjoyed the previous 2 or even if you just enjoy puzzle games.
Nice puzzle game. Some easier levels, some somewhat harder levels. Not too hard. Will take about 3 hours to complete.
Very similar puzzle mechanics compared to the previous 2 games, but that's not an issue.
Runs well, great visuals. Good undo and reset functionality. Only a few levels require somewhat precise timing.
I jumped into SiNKR 3 without playing the first two, and was happy to see that it was accessible without any prior knowledge. Elegant level design teaches mechanics without a word, introducing concepts at a satisfying pace and iterating on them in interesting ways. The visuals, music, and harmonious sound effects come together for a relaxing experience. It has a nice pace and engaging difficulty curve. If you like abstract puzzle games, it is 100% worth the price!
Another great sequel to one of my favorite games. SiNKR 3 brings back the elegance and serenity the first two brought. I love getting lost in the blissful calm of these games. The puzzles are easy-to-comprehend challenges that retain a lot of replay value. Somehow the developer has continued to make solving these things so rewarding!
Sinkr 3? Why, that's a treat, you see. For thee can be on a spree of dunking pucks and pulling hooks, I do decree. Hop down from that tree where you were K-I-S-S-I-N-G and onto your pony as you are my invitee to play this game like a true devotee. Will it be the key to make you happy? Well, just look at me.
Haven't played much yet, but this is definitely more of the same excellent puzzle design this franchise is famous for. If you like head-scratching clever puzzles that don't take too long to solve with a variety of surprising and fascinating mechanics... you'll like this.
You know what you'll get with each SiNKR game. It's always the same, yet each game is always different. That's the magic of the SiNKR series.
If you're new to SiNKR, you're in for a treat. This 3'rd SiNKR adds a few more variations to the basic mechanics and leads to some really elegant head scratchers. If you've played the prior SiNKRs, I think you'll find this one even more immersive. There are some subtle improvements in the music and sounds that adds to the overall charm of this game.
I can't recommend this game highly enough. If you're looking for a unique puzzle game that you can figure out without a single line of text explaining things (which often ruins the unique "A-HA" experience good puzzles give you), this is it.
5-Stars (out of 5)!!!
I loved SiNKR 1 and 2. This third installment continues on the great gameplay and puzzle design of those with some new innovations and twists on the puzzle mechanics. Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys puzzle games!
edit: haven't tried the reworked levels but some misc. fixes and changes happened, so I edited the review.
sinkr 3 is the supposedly final entry in the minimalist puzzle game series and I'm glad there won't be more after playing this, though as you can see it still got a thumbs up, but only just. it's largely the same as the first and second title, so get ready for more hooking, lining and sinking, but this time there's a bunch of diagonal placement.
also, properly working undo for the first time. it works after a level reset and getting patched into the rest of the games as well, and shortly after release it was made to work from a fail state and on late-game levels with certain mechanics as well.
88 levels in 12 packs, the usual non-linear progression with multiple stages available most of the time, in case you get stuck on one. besides the usual arrows, portals and whatnot, another new mechanic is physics-based shenanigans, which I'm never a fan of and didn't enjoy it here either. and while the series always had some dreaded timing elements, it definitely didn't need a fuckton more. balls bouncing around while you're trying to click arrows and stuff, ugh... and it might've always been the case, can't remember specifics of the earlier games, but I felt there were way too many 'the same level but...' situations here.
controls are mouse-based but there are rebindable hotkeys. the wheel can't be used as undo though, click an icon or press a key. the whole thing should be effortlessly controllable with the mouse, it's the 3rd fucking identical game in the series...
the presentation is the usual, except there's a tacky lightning now when things disappear. it can only be turned off with the entire background, unfortunately. mandatory dotted lines all over the screen need getting used to as well. early on they're just in the way but later become very handy and necessary with most things being diagonal, which, while we're at it, also feels overused.
settings are the usual as well. separate volume sliders, resolutions, resizable windowed mode, background toggle, one to hide further parts of level select and another button doing who knows what because it's also the usual lazy text-free nonsense, you have to figure out what the hieroglyphs mean, always annoying.
while a step back in many ways, it's just about okay overall and the price is reasonable. I didn't enjoy it as much as previous entries due to all the annoyances outlined above and decided to skip a few iterative levels this time. not a good way to end a series that used to be one of my favorites.
I've been a huge fan of the SiNKR series since the beginning and SiNKR 3 continues to deliver! I love the play at your own pace feel of the puzzles and the soothing audio to go along with it. Those things matched with the fun, brain-teasing puzzles in this game is why I really enjoy this game so much!
If you liked the first and second one then you're gonna like this one too. It's basically the same stuff just with different variations.
More creative puzzle design! Any time I get stumped I end up stepping away for a few mins, coming back with a fresh eye and realizing a different way of thinking about it that I hadn't seen earlier. The multi-step undo feature is amazing, and makes this game definitely the best in the series so far.
Relaxing until it's not! A mellow puzzle game that will test your wits in the later levels. If you haven't played the first 2, just grab the bundle, it's a good deal and it's fun to see the evolution.
