Exclusive to Apple Arcade, this coming of age game is addicting yet relaxing to play. You have to manipulate cards that can stack, expand and float to solve puzzles with your fingertips. Each puzzle takes place in a dreamlike stage filled with details and colours. The game has a story but the real star here is the way you interact with the cards to make bridges and houses that aid you in clearing a level. The music also plays a big role in the game as it is meant to relax the player with soft sounds and calm tones. The entire package makes the game extremely immersive, which is why we recommend you play this game with headphones.
