English Country Tune is a puzzle video game by Increpare Games.
The first few levels are much like Sokoban puzzles, in which objects are pushed around on a grid by a player-controlled figure until they reach specified target cells; subsequent levels add other elements with different unconventional behaviors and goals. The levels often involve three-dimensional structures, around which the player must navigate using logic and abstraction.
Lavelle developed the prototype, which was in part inspired by Spacechem, at a game jam event. While finishing the game up, however the game, in Lavelle's own words, " ended up getting a lot bigger and changing a hell of a lot." Lavelle has also cited Cogs as an inspiration.
Upon release, English Country Tune received mostly positive reviews, with its iOS version holding a score of 78/100 based on four critic reviews.
