Blending picture and word puzzles together, Illustrated is one of the best games on Apple Arcade. In Illustrated, every picture has a story, written by the artist themselves.
With every new piece placed, colors build, music swells, and more clues appear. To solve the puzzle, you must strategically use both picture and story!
I love it, plain and simple. So calming and relaxing. I love playing this game before sleeping at night. It's calming when I'm stressed as well. Or, just after a long day of school. I think the art is amazing and the stories they tell are amazing as well! Perfection!
Patterned is a unique puzzle game that immerses you in the beauty and joy of seamless, repeating patterns.
Each puzzle begins as a simple sketch in which you must use visual clues to reassemble its scrambled pieces. As you place each piece, music builds, colors grow, and surrounding pattern tiles magically assemble themselves. When the final puzzle piece is placed, the seamless pattern is completed and fills the screen in vibrant beauty.
This game seriously calms my nerves and anxiety. The amazing patterns are hands down so adorable and there are so many to chose from! This game is a new favorite of mine. If you have anxiety, this definitely calms me down. Ooo and the music is very relaxing as well.
Wondering What Our Community Thinks?
I have been loving this puzzle game since it came out. The art is lovely and colorful, the music is beautiful and relaxing, and since there is no timer nor any sort of rushing, this game is so relaxing. I have integrated putting at least one puzzle together into my daily routine as I wind down.
I look forward to playing this puzzle each day, especially at night time as I wind down. The soothing music really makes this more relaxing and enjoyable. Kinda addicted to it. Good for the soul.
It is very mesmerizing. I truly enjoy the artworks and the quotes that go along with it. The music is also very calming.
Takes legit art pieces and turns them into puzzles accompanied by beautiful music and a backstory for each. Relaxing and challenging all at the same time.
I am really enjoying this app. The images are fantastic. It’s a calming break for my brain.
As a visual artist, I’ve always liked puzzles. I’m mesmerized by the colors, shapes, and patterns as I put them together - time just flies. The art pieces featured in these puzzles are fascinating too. It’s also great to read the artists’ stories.
By far the best puzzle app I have played!!
I am new to this game and wow it’s very beautiful and relaxing to play with the soothing music provided. It really does melt the stress away.
I absolutely love this app! It’s extremely relaxing and a great way to unwind. The pictures are gorgeous and love the quotes and stories.
I can use this to calm my mind before bed. This is the closest that I have ever found to doing a physical puzzle. Thank you for creating a truly relaxing game!
"Love this game so much! It's very relaxing and it's exciting to reveal the story at the end. Thank you for your lovely creation!"
I rarely review games. But this is a very special game. Patterned is a beautiful, calming, creative game - one that I can get lost playing for hours at a time. I certainly recommend folks download. Kudos to the developers and the artists! Simply fantastic.
Of all the games I have, this is the one I play the most. I absolutely love it. It’s so relaxing and I get so excited whenever new designs come out.
There are so many wonderful things about this game. The soundtrack is astonishing. Thank you Chris Bartels for such relaxing, inspiring music. The art is lovely and varied. Thank you to the dozens of artists who have contributed. The gameplay is simple and I love putting together a couple of puzzles before bed every night. It helps me sleep and has become a part of my routine.
This game is so relaxing. It is really helping me through a stressful time. Gentle music, lovely images, and no pressure. A perfect activity if you need to unwind. Also, you get to download the completed pictures for some wonderful wallpapers.
If only I would have found this earlier in the year. Fun, calming, great for stress relief! Plus, lots of puzzles withought taking up your whole dinning room table :)
Not only are the designs stunning, but the game is captivating and addictive.|It was so good I felt the need to leave a review, and it’s stars are well earned If you have Apple Arcade it’s well worth a download, and it will be enough to renew my subscription. I can’t wait to see what new patterns they add!
I have never enjoyed a puzzle app as much as I enjoy this one. Someone/s put a lot of thought into creating a masterpiece. One of my favorite parts is the beginning of each puzzle. With each piece placed color and music slowly sneaks in. As a whole the puzzles are calming and lets my mind disconnect from chaotic days in the most pleasant way.
There is a meditative quality to playing this game. Your mind is focused on exploring the intricate patterns and enjoying the artwork - the puzzles are very stimulating and the score is soothing. Fantastic!
Patterned is a calming tonic in these troubled times. A peaceful invitation to quiet mindfulness. If a game could be a meditation, Patterned is it!
Finished the first set of games now I am on a new second set. Love the puzzles AND THE MUSIC very relaxing. Had a few very tough puzzles. Great game!
A beautifully designed puzzle game that’s both relaxing and challenging!
These are amazing! They are perplexing, since they are repeated patterns. Hence, the pieces appear as they should fit in a spot, but can only be placed within the working pattern field. However, it’s so fullfilling to see the whole pattern come together. It’s a great way to increase focus and visual perception too!
This has been my favorite relaxing app for a long time. I had finished all of the puzzle twice (it took years) and hadn’t played it in months.
Beautiful puzzles with calming music. Nice way to relax and unwind!
Thank you for the new patterns. I loved the addition of daily patterns and I’m glad to occasionally find new batches of beautiful artwork. Beautiful music and beautiful pictures that make beautiful wallpapers My only complaint is that I’ve finished them all.
The music is calming and the pictures are beautiful. Puzzles slightly challenging but still casual enough to keep me from giving up on it.
I don’t play puzzle games but I have been playing Patterned for quite awhile now. I love the setting that play music that builds as I progress. The music and art are so beautiful on my iPad.
This has become my favorite anytime game. Mostly at night winding down or just playing while waiting at the doctors office. The artwork is beautiful and these puzzles, while they definitely have a meditative vibe, aren’t always as easy as you might think. Relaxing and engaging gameplay with a slight challenge and beautiful art make this a stand out in the picture puzzle genre.
I’m not sure if I can put into words how much I love this app. It just puts me in such a trance and puts my mind at peace. The music, the colors, the illustrations. I am just obsessed. It really just relaxes me. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this app. Keep up the amazing work devs!!
"Patterned and a cuppa are all I need to melt stress away before bed! Thank you so much for this game!!!!"
Can you solve each crossword puzzle, with only the first and last letters as your guide?
I love this game! I bought a pass to unlock all the levels a few years ago and love this game as much today as I did then. I’ve replayed all the levels several times and they’re still challenging. Love the new look and the new daily levels. Thank you!
