Cronostace Electric Collection from Penguin Pop Games brings us seven different minimalist puzzle experiences in one go. Check out our Cronostace Electric Collection review!


Cronostace Electric Collection from Penguin Pop Games brings us seven different minimalist puzzle experiences in one go. Each puzzle type will have 50 puzzles for you to solve, which means you’re getting 350 puzzles for only $7.99. Two of the puzzle types are of the Sokoban variety, meaning you’ll be pushing boxes to complete each level. The other puzzle types are of the tile-swapping variety, with some twists here and there. As for the puzzle types, they are Lighton, Lighton Duo, Puzzle Light, Puzzle Light One Mode, Puzzle Light Rotate, Puzzle Light Slide, and Puzzle Light Connect.


Cronostace Electric Collection Review - 1

Here are short descriptions of each puzzle type straight from Penguin Pop Games:

Lighton – Assemble a circuit and turn on all the lights. Watch out though, if you make a short circuit it will EXPLODE!
Lighton: Duo – Assemble circuits, but be careful: you can switch between yellow and blue modes and can only move the same colored circuitry!
Puzzle Light – Complete circuitry by swapping the position of two static tiles.
Puzzle Light: One Move – A logic puzzle where you must figure out how to complete the target with a single move!
Puzzle Light: Rotate – Complete circuitry by rotating circuitry tiles in place.
Puzzle Light: Slide – This time your tiles can only be slid around the game board in a cardinal direction and won’t stop until they hit another tile or a wall.
Puzzle Light: Connect – Move the whole circuit around as you pick up more pieces!

Given the Sokoban nature of the puzzle types in this collection, you’ll be controlling a character with the left analog stick or the D-Pad as you push blocks around… and that’s the basic premise for all puzzles! You can press the X button to undo your last move, and if you keep pressing it, you’ll undo the move before that one, and the one before that one, and so on. If you feel that you’ve made one too many mistakes, you can press the Triangle to restart the level. Pressing the Circle button – which is marked as Spoiler – will show you the solution for the level so that you can replicate it.

Trophy-wise, this one features a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, and it’s not a challenging one to take on. On top of that, since this is a Cross-Buy one, your purchase will give you both the PS4 and the PS5 versions, and each one will have its own trophy list. Said list includes 14 Silver trophies and 7 Gold trophies and requires that you complete levels 1, 2, and 4 for each of the seven different puzzle types.
