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…

Squirgle turns arithmetic into a hectic and hypnotic fast-paced puzzle game

When you think of a math puzzler, you're probably thinking of game revolving around adding, substracting, multiplying, or maybe constructing geometric shaoes. Squirgle's approach is both familiar and abstract: combining arithemtic with a kaleidoscopic aesthetic, number bases, color matching, and a ticking clock. Squirgle looks complex at the first glance - and it does have a number of mechanics to manage - but it's simpler to imagine the shapes along the bottoms of its screen instead as numbers. A point equals 1, a line has two points and so equals 2, a triangle has three points and equals 3, and so on until looping back to the point, depending on the number base you're playing with. Your…
