Dream of Pixels

by Dawn of Play

Dream of Pixels is a beautiful falling blocks puzzle game. The brilliant twist on the old classic is the unpacking of tetromino blocks in place of the usual packing. Simply tap on the descending grid to unpack the tetrominos and watch them spin, rotate and drop with gravity. Clear the lines from the beautiful cloudy grid fast enough or it's - dream over.

  • Lovely game 5 stars

    by pacalin

    In the first 5 minutes of gameplay, I relocated to the couch so I could nestle into a comfortable spot where I plan to remain for a long, long time. The soothing sounds coupled with the dreamy interface make for the most relaxing puzzle I\'ve seen. Beautiful.

    This is one of the best puzzlers released on the store in some time. Be prepared to play over and over again as it's that kind of game. The modes are great and the design, beautiful. This is one dream I don't want to wake up from.

  • So Very Awesome 5 stars

    by Natephish

    Dream of Pixels is everything I thought it would be: beautiful, relaxing, and tons of fun. I'm often disappointed by games/apps I purchase without much thought, but this one did not let me down! New favorite iOS game for sure.
