Tesserae was introduced to the Mac twenty years ago ... and now it's back better than ever with modern graphics and new features. Tournament mode is now front and center with all your scores and trophies displayed right on the main window.

Solve each mosaic by removing tiles until only one tile remains. The challenge is choosing how to combine and reduce the colors of the tiles. You'll soon remember color addition and subtraction, but help is available to get you started.

As with any great casual game, Tesserae is simple to learn, but a challenge to master. You progress from Novice to Master, solving six mosaics at each level. Win trophies for each mosaic and level. Complete a tournament to earn a bronze, silver or gold trophy. Return to any board to improve your combined score and win higher trophies. With such versatile play and random tile layouts, the fun never ends.

Tesserae includes instructions, choice of board and layout, sound option and, best of all, the ability to undo your last move; just as you realize the move you should have made.

Tesserae has been played and loved on the Mac, Game Boy, Sega and PC for twenty years. Now, Tesserae returns to the Mac with a great rendition you are sure to enjoy!

Just as fun as the original! - Having played Tesserae on the Mac years ago I am very pleased to finally see this back on the Mac! This version stays true to the original (with some great additions like trophies) and is a fun game for anyone who likes puzzle games.
