Quell captivates and enchants the mind with challenging puzzles and all-encompassing, Zen-like gameplay. The critically-acclaimed Quell boasts more than 80 levels of ingenious puzzles, gorgeous graphics, and a custom soundtrack by renowned composer Steven Cravis.

You Are the Rain
Play as an individual raindrop within a unique puzzle design. You share the space with a handful of pearls, fixed in their positions. Collect the pearls in as few moves as possible, while avoiding obstacles or traps. Swipe your finger across the screen in the direction you want your raindrop to move. The raindrop cannot change direction while in motion, so movements are controlled and predicable. Swipe your raindrop to the left, and it will move directly to the left until it hits the wall.

Using the Elements
Each puzzle's environment differs from the last. Each puzzle has elements for you to use to your advantage, and some elements that you must avoid.

Windows to the Past
Upon launching Quell, you find yourself in the home of someone who doesn't seem to be present at the moment, however there is a presence. Small sparkles fill the air and invite you to explore. With the beautiful 3D graphics, you can't help but notice the dreary day, but you you can also see the beautiful tulips outside the window, boots by the fireplace, and the shadows cast from the wall sconce.

The bookshelves are where you'll be guided. Each shelf contains windows into the past. This is where your puzzles yearn to be explored. Begin in 1928: the earliest stage.

    Highly Recommended

    Amazingly, this little gem is both highly addictive and highly relaxing. Move your raindrop around and gather pearls while avoiding spikes. Beautiful, watercolor effect graphics with relaxing neutral tones helps to make this game very relaxing. Highly recommended for anyone!

    Perfect balance

    Love this game because it is a perfect balance of fun and mental challenge. Music and graphics are soothing yet not boring. For me, there is a nie balance diffuculty in each level. About the time i get frustrated, the next one only challenges me enough to spur me on.

    A Must Have

    This game somehow manages to be challanging and yet calming. It mechanics are smooth and fluid, and the music soothing as you play. All of the puzzles can be completed without to much trouble, but completing them all perfectly is a real challenge. Intricate, beautiful, and wonderus, this game is a must have for any phone or tablet.

    Recommended

    A very fun, relaxing, and subtly addictive puzzle game. Nice, unobtrusive soundtrack, too. So far, my only quibble wiith Qwell is that it seems to disable the screen timeout of my nook. I was in the middle of a game and I had tp walk away for a few minutes. When I came back, the screen was still on and ,y nook was almost completely discharged.

    Its just Ok

    This game is not as exciting as everyone is saying. It is alrifht to pass the time but doesnt compare to a game like angry birds where it actually gives u a bit of a challenge. This game is waaaayy too easy for someone that likes aa challenge.

    Very relax and calming game!

    This app is very relaxing and calming. The creators can do better with the background music though, but in general great game, worth every penny.
