While there are a fair number of physics puzzlers on the App Store, few blend colour matching with magnetic mechanics. Developer Stewart Hogarth has done exactly this, however, with his new puzzler iON Bond.
The principles of iON Bond’s puzzles are remarkably simple. The goal of each level is to attract disks of the same colour together. In isolation, however, none of the disks have any locomotion of their own.
Luckily, the tiny circles can be positively or negatively charged. Their polarity allows you to pull them together or push them apart like magnets, enabling you to navigate your way around each puzzle.
Featuring 70 levels, and a secret game mode that unlocks when you manage a perfect score, iOS Bond isn't short on content. Fortunately, however difficult the puzzles become, the soothing music should stop you launching your device out the window.
If the promise of iON Bond attracts you, then you can get it from the App Store at midnight tonight for 69p / 99c.
