Plenty of levels. Cityglitch is packed with plenty of content for the value. There are 95 puzzles spread out across seven cities, including three boss fights. You must clear current puzzles to gain access to new ones. Can you solve them all?

Don't get caught

Don't get caught. As the city witch, you must help light up the runes to complete the ritual and release the glitch. But watch out — after you move, enemies and obstacles do too, so plan your moves carefully!

Get the runes. You can move horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. Get the city witch to light up the runes and release the glitches. Be careful, and don't get caught.

What is it about?

The visuals in Cityglitch are unique and distinctive, as the game carries a retro, pixelated art style that is rather nostalgic. The pixels are rather large compared to other pixel art titles, so it reminds me of my old [CRT monitors]( with [MS-DOS]( While the graphics feel more like 8-bit than anything else, I still found the various characters and objects to be pretty identifiable once you get start playing. Cityglitch is full of bright and vibrant neon colors, so it's definitely eye candy. Animations are smooth and fluid, with no lag on my iPhone 7. Cityglitch also features an eerie chiptune soundtrack that is delightful to listen to and adds to the overall mood of the game.
