A simple tile-laying game that is approachable for players of all ages, Connectors: Animal Planet focuses on the fauna found in nature all around us.

The game offers multiple ways to play, such as the less competitive Link and Learn or the PvP Turbo Tiles mode. This helps you play the game at a pace of your choice. With a stack of 54 tiles, Connectors can offer a lot of fun, especially for the young ones at home.
