From Apple’s Editors’ Notes:

We’re hooked on this frenetic shape-matching test of speed and skill. Pinch, twist, and swipe waves of colorful squares to fit them into target zones before the clock runs out. As the difficulty increases, tricky shapes and new resizing challenges keep the gameplay fresh. Dazzling minimalist graphics and controls that can handle even the fastest fingers make Hyper Square a stylish, action-packed puzzler that delivers breakneck bursts of fun.

And a video of the game in action:

Hyper Square has won a number of awards over the years, and was named one of Apple’s top apps for May in 2014. It’s definitely one of those games that you want to grab, even if you don’t plan on playing it right away, to save for a rainy day.

If you’re interested, you can find Hyper Square in the App Store for free.
