Solve tricky logic puzzles in The Sequence 2, releasing on iOS next month

The Sequence 2 is an abstract logic-based puzzler in the vein of games like SpaceChem and Perfect Paths, challenging you to construct elaborite Rube Goldberg-esque mechanisms that work in harmony to transport inputs to a waiting output. Your goal is simple: manuever a red circles across the hexagonal grid to an exit tile. But that's not so easy when you need to do so by synchronizing numerous nodes to work together to move those circles through the tight map, not just once but in repeatable cycles that don't stall mid-loop.  The nodes you place have various functions, from pushing or pulling circles to rotating their position. Combining those functions allow you to methodically…

Interlogic is a clever matching puzzler coming soon to iOS

The matching puzzler is one of the familiar on mobile, and yet every once in a while, a clever hybrid finds a unique approach for the mechanic, such as Swap Sword and Six Match. Interlogic offers its own twist on the formula, combining tile-matching with Sokoban-inspired block pushing. Controlling a tiny truck, you need to make matches in each level not through swiping tiles but by pushing them with your vehicle. This change turns matches into spatial challenge that forces you to consider how to move around a level, how to precisely push tiles, and when to make matches you can make space for your truck. Increasingly tight level design, barriers, and other mechanics add further complexity…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Hexa Turn

Hexa Turn is a minimalist logic puzzler, placing your barrier-construction abiltiies againsit a predictable AI and tricky level configurations. As a concept, Hexa Turn is quite simple: a triangle relentlessly travels the hexagon grid turn-by-turn, taking the shortest possible route towards squares on the grid. It's your job to prevent that by filling in hexagons to create barriers, blocking off the triangle's path and redirecting its approach, until you've trapped it with no viable moves forward. That's easier said than done when once Hexa Turn starts adding multiple squares to protect and larger grids for the triangle to move across. Even without the mechanics that come later, Hexa Turn…
