Your goal is to fill the screen with a single color, but how you accomplish this goal is what makes Yellow and Red such enjoyable experiences. Every stage features a distinct rule, to be discovered and understand, to solve a puzzle; through experimental taps and swipes and observation, soon that rule or pattern…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Barrier X

Barrier X puts you in control of a vessel rocketing through an endless expanse at insane velocities, as white barriers appear with alarming speed.

Battle otherworldly beasts in atmospheric action-platformer Feist

Feist probably might remind you of Limbo at a glance, with its shadowed aesthetic and woodland environments, but that's where the similarities end. Rather than puzzles, Feist is all about intense brawls with relentless creatures. You're a small fuzzy being, captured by a larger species but able to escape into the hostile wilderness. At every turn, new threats lurk - vicious stinging insects, towering mole-like beasts, swarming spiders - and the only things between you and death are your agility and quick reflexes. As you leap around charging monsters, branches and pine cones become your desperately improvised weapons, giving you just enough breathing room to outmanuever and decide your ne…

Hexologic offers a colorful new variant of Sudoku-style puzzles

Logical deductions are what you need to solve Hexologic's number-based puzzles. In its increasingly tricky challenges, you must fill in its hexagonal grids with the right numbers in the right places, a task harder than it sounds. Each stage in Hexologic is crafted from connected hexagons, with numbers at the ends of rows; you need to place dots within those hexagons so they add up to the numbers. The headscratching comes from the fact that dots can interact along multiple diagonals, so figuring how where to place the correct number of dots without messing up sums horizontally or vertically can become a test of planning steps ahead. Hexologic gradually introduces new mechanics through…

Minesweeper and Picross (and Picross-inspired games) have more than a few variants on mobile, but Minesweeper Genius blends elements of the two to create a charming and clever puzzle hybrid. Reminiscent of how Swap Sword had you navigating a character through a match-3 grid, Minesweeper Genius turns each stage into a maze of mines to manuver through, guiding broom-wielding genius Aristotle through a gauntlet of science experiments step-by-step. Similar to Picross games, numbers on the rows and colums allow you to logically deduce which tiles are either rigged to blow or safe to walk along; Minesweeper-style markers also provide additional information as the randomly-generated puzzles…

Scalak is an unorthodox cubic puzzler from the developer of Zenge and Art of Gravity, releasing this month on iOS and Android

Developer Michal Pawlowski's roster of puzzle games all share the traits of being visually unique and relaxingly paced, and the upcoming Scalak looks like a welcome addition among past titles like Zenge and Push. At its most basic, Scalak look reminiscent of a 3D jigsaw puzzle, challenging you to fit oddly-shaped pieces onto cubic structures. In the trailer, a wide variety of puzzle types are shown, each one building upon that concept in different ways: filling in gaps on surfaces with shaped tiles, rotating sections of cubic levels so special tiles will fit with the correct orientation, and even placing girder-like construction across a structure's vertices. And like his past games, Scal…
