Spin, an addictive Windows Phone puzzle game inspired by Chinese philosophy

Spin 2014 is physics-based puzzle game inspired by the ancient Chinese philosophy of YIN and YANG, that describes how apparently opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world. Yin 陰 or 阴 is the female/passive/negative principle in nature while the Yang 陽 or 阳 is the positive/active/male principle in nature.

Of course, you don't have to know the givens of the philosophy to play the game. Your objective is to restore the balance which is lost since YIN and YANG have been separated, and both cease to exist without another.

Spin offers a mixture of Tao-inspired theme with a pinch of puzzle elements and high-quality graphics. There's soothing music intended to calm your senses. It's almost like playing a game sitting in a Thai spa!

The game features a rotating layout to guide YIN or Yang to their objective. You can play as either and experience different themes. The game puts your dexterity and agility to test, and you'll need observational skills and extreme control as you face mind-bending levels as you go along.

  • Looks like now there are much more games on wp.
  • But it's most all paid!
  • No try, no buy
  • I know some addicts.
  • Agreed, injecting Chinese philosophy into games is cool stuff... The review leaves mystery as to the game's mechanics. Accelerometer based or is is point>tap>swipe>repeat><?
  • With a lot of respect to Wp central, could game reviews have other kinds of games other than puzzle games, I know a lot of people love them and also I enjoy some of them, but please, there are more kinds of games in the store than only puzzle games, I don't intend to bother anyone, just give my point of view, the are good shooting games, like dead call or gravestompers, don't focus on puzzle games ONLY, I've seen this kind of reviews here, but most reviewed games are puzzle games
  • Ah, it's good to see that you read the comments from that awful 'addicting' article! Pedants revolt!
  • What's the gameplay? There has to be trailer if it is paid.
