Critical reception[edit]

The game has a Metacritic rating of 88% based on 8 critic reviews.[1]

Gamezebo wrote " Rules! is that sort of lightning in a bottle that only comes along every so often. I’d rank it right up there with Threes!, and not just because both games so gleefully abuse exclamation points. "[2] IGN Italia said "Rules! is one of that game that you can’t simply quit: it’s amazing to look and to play, engaging and challenging, even brutal if your brain isn’t trained enough. Follow the Rules has never looked so good. "[3] TouchArcade wrote "It's certainly worth checking out, but be warned: it might make you feel your age, even if you're not all that old. "[4] ArcadeSushi said "Rules! provides the unique experience of further developing hand-eye coordination and memory skills in each person who plays it, while giving the added bonus of plain-old having fun. "[5] Apple'N'Apps wrote "Rules! is an excellently crafted new puzzle idea that will no doubt get you to absolutely love following the rules. "[6] PocketGamerUK said "A delightfully constructed memory test that grows in complexity and appeal the deeper in you go."[7] 148Apps compared the game to Simon Says, writing "Follow the rules to the letter in order to win in this simple yet tough memory game. "[8]
