How to Play

Pull each of the pins in the correct order to untangle them.

  • Starting the Game
    • Select the circle in the lower left side of the game welcome screen to begin the game.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • With your mouse, left click on the circles to retract the pins on the other end of the lines.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Tap on the screen with a finger to retract the pins.
  • Game Play
    • Basic
      • Pull a pin by selecting the solid circle on the end of it.
      • If the pin being pulled hits anything, you will need to start all over again.
      • To clear a level, you must pull all the pins out, often in the proper order.
    • Features
      • Pins often have the titular hooks.
        • These can come in both circular or linear variants.
        • Hooks often have pins embedded near them.
          • To remove a pin, any pin that crosses its must be removed first. Remove the solid pins before the pins with a gap in them.
          • Pins with circular hooks are generally pulled after the ones without them.
          • Meanwhile, pins with linear hooks typically must be removed in rapid succession so that the edge of one hook does not hit an adjacent hook.
      • Some pins are connected by a transparent circle with a line.
        • These indicate overlapping lines.
        • Clicking on the circle rotates the line that bisects it, connecting one pathway while disconnecting the other pathway.
        • The center line serves as a path for one of the pins.
        • The transparent circle only disappears when both pins have been removed.
      • Some hooks not connected to the pins move, which can complicate your strategy to remove them.
    • Determining proper removal order
      • In most levels, the pins can be removed one at a time.
        • Find the pin that stands in the way of another pin, them remove that.
        • Watch out for pins with transparent circles and determine which ones you should pull first.
        • These levels often involve circular hooks.
      • Other levels rely on timing as well as removal order.
        • Linear hooks with overlapping parts sticking out often cannot be removed one at a time and must be removed near-simultaneously.
          • They get entangled no matter which order you remove them.
          • Pins take time to retract. The delay between clicking one and clicking another is enough time to let the pins retract without hitting each other.
          • Look at which pin has the most clearance time until it would hit the other one & then do the second pin.
          • On one of these scenarios you have to click one, change the direction of a circle’s flow, then click the other.
        • When portions of the level move, timing is critical.
          • You must start the removal at the the right time to bypass the moving part.
          • On the circular spinners you have to start moving your pin before the opening is fully aligned to be able to move it in time without the backside of the closing hitting your pin.
          • This can take time to master. Be prepared for a lot of trial and error.
          • Luckily this game offers unlimited continues and starts you off on the failed level if you make an error.
    • Length
      • This game only has around a dozen levels, so you can easily beat it on a lunch break or a bus or train commute.
      • I liked this game & would have rated it much higher if it had more levels.
      • The screenshots below try to capture the level types from early levels to the middle & end of the game.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for logic puzzle fans of all ages.
      • Almost anyone can beat the first few levels.
      • The last 3 or 4 levels are quite challenging unless you are really into these types of games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
