Playing Linken

Your goal in this puzzle game is to link the same colored shapes together with a single path. You will be challenged when additional shapes and connectors are added, but your objective remains the same. There are 10 chapters containing 400 levels to keep you busy.


Game modes

You will begin Linken in Classic mode and can unlock additional ones. Arcade mode will give you a procedural puzzle, while Zen mode will let you relax and play without time limits. Earn up to three stars in each Classic level to unlock the Zen mode and complete 30 stages to unlock Arcade mode. Check out this preview of Linken and just click here if you cannot see the video:

Stars and power-ups

You will earn the first star for completing the stage, the second by doing it within the time limit, and the third star by finishing the stage within the number of moves provided. Helpful power-ups can be earned or purchased with points converted from stars. The Solution one will connect a color to completion and Traceback will return the number of moves you spent. There are also Skips and Time Extenders available.
