Cypher Prime's Auditorium was one of my favourite games from last year, so I was excited to see if its next release, Fractal, would be just as beautiful. A browser demo has just appeared online, and praise the Prime, it's lovely stuff.

Given a hexagonal grid, the idea is to push pieces around the board and create 'blooms', which then explode, sending other blocks all over and hopefully creating a chain reaction. Each level has a specific number of blooms you need to achieve, but there's always a limit to how many pushes you have at your disposal.

Once again, Cypher Prime has melded sound and vision to satisfying effect. You definitely need to go and try this puzzle game out before its release in 'late May', as pre-orders are available for $9.99, with a final price of $14.99 after release.

Go play!
