And Then it Rained is both a relaxing, ambient puzzler and a frantic, frustrating, stress-inducing swipe-off rolled into one.

You can choose to puzzle away sedately, moving towers around to catch blobs of coloured water as they drop down from the top of the screen.

Or you can tackle some of the challenges, or the more demanding quick play modes, and find yourself swearing under your breath as your towers shift and you miss a vital drop.

Either way there are some intriguing mechanics here, and enough levels to keep you playing for a good long while.

Wet wet wet

The game is pretty simple to get to grips with. You've got a series of coloured towers along the bottom of the screen that you can move by dragging them around.

At the top of the screen, droplets of angular, coloured water appear. You need to make sure that the correctly coloured tower is under the drop when it falls.

It's easy enough to begin with, when you're only dealing with single drops. But after a while you'll be shifting multiple towers around to ensure not a single splash of water ends up in the wrong place.

The towers jostle each other out of the way when you move them though, so it's entirely possible to move one into position, then barge it out of the way when you place the second in the right place.

When the drops are coming thick and fast, and the combinations of colours you're having to slide about are always in the most awkward of places, things can get pretty hectic pretty fast.


A rare occurrence of rain not stopping play

The central mechanics of And Then it Rained are solid, and they create a game that you can't help but play. It's innovative, and while it does get a little repetitive, there's still a good deal of play to be found here.

And if you're stuck on a particularly tough level, you can always relax in one of the more sedate modes.

And Then it Rained might not have the tight compulsion loops that some of its contemporaries can boast, but it's polished enough that you're still likely to enjoy the time you spend in its bright, damp company.
