From developer Sebastian Schoener: "In Patterna, each level is a network of nodes (also known as a graph).

It is the player's task to correctly classify these unrevealed nodes using information based on distance, connectivity, and color. Correctly classifying a node may reveal more information that in turn helps you to solve the level."
