Learn the symmetry. Motif is all about symmetry. Drag the piece and watch it split up into multiple pieces. Move them around until they form the artistic motif at the top. But be careful — things are not always as they appear.

Tricky puzzles

Tricky puzzles. While the game starts out simple enough, things get harder as you move on. You'll find motifs that need two or more pieces to be intertwined, and it's harder to figure out how to form them. You get one daily hint to help you get through all of the puzzles, so use them wisely.

Create the motif. The goal of the game is simple: just recreate the motif that's displayed at the top of the screen. Drag the piece and watch it split up into more pieces, and rearrange them so that it matches up. It's unique, relaxing, and minimalistic enough for everyone to enjoy.

What is it about?

Visually, Motif is as simple as they come. The game is entirely in black and white, featuring basic lines and shapes for the graphics. The only bit of color that you'll find is the red dot representing a handle in which you drag the parts with. The game is rendered in 2D so everything is flat and minimalistic, which should be appealing to those who prefer this aesthetic. Animations are smooth and fluid, including the subtle falling snow overlay. There's a soothing atmospheric soundtrack that plays in the background, and the sound effects are rather whimsical. As a fan of simplicity, I think the developer did a great job with Motif's visual and audio design.
