Stitch. is an adorable puzzle game that’s centred around embroidery on a numbered grid. When you play the title, you’ll be encouraged to fill in the levels’ areas with no gaps to complete Hoops. “Stitch. lets you create beautiful embroidery patterns, by solving levels and Hoops of various difficulties and sizes. It’s easy to learn, but hard to master! Stitch up all the beautiful landscapes, plants, animals, objects, and more,” the developer adds.
