RollOut Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
RollOut Review

For most puzzle platformers you'll be put in control of a character that's subject to the whims of a cruel environment that can push, block and direct you towards various traps. In Rollout by Bulkypix you get to reverse the roles, taking control of the environment to bounce, speed up and slow down an adorable ball of fluff called Wabba as he makes his way to each exit. Once Wabba warps in to each level he'll curl up and start rolling until you've completed the level, leaving you to sh…

PUZZLE DEVIL TOUCH! Review

Review WOOZZANG By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
PUZZLE DEVIL TOUCH! Review

Puzzle Devil Touch by WOOZZANG is a deceptively simple puzzler that will have you scratching your head as you try to master shifting numbered blocks across the game's puzzle grid to fall in to each open square. Each level consists of one or more numbered blocks that represent the number of moves left before it turns in to an immovable block. Slippery surfaces and direction-shifting arrows add an incredible amount of complexity to the game's puzzles, but if you're finding any puzzle to…

Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I Review

Review The App House By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I Review

'Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I' (deep breath) by The App House is an interesting experiment in trying to recapture what made the Professor Layton series on Nintendo's handhelds so popular. With its turn of the century 'period' style and dozens of interesting puzzles the game certainly steps in the right direction, but will players dive in to the world of Simon Graham long enough to wait for 'Book II'? Most of the game's puzzles are touch-driven, allowing players…

BLACKOUT! Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
BLACKOUT! Review

BLACKOUT! by Sunken Media is the latest puzzle game to be published by Disney for the App Store. Players will require more than just their luck and observational skills as BLACKOUT! focuses on the puzzle aspect of powering up cities that have been without power for too long. Power sources under the city have been blocked off, but carefully clearing out paths will allow the energy to flow around the level in order to light up the remaining switched off lights. Paths can be blown up by…

Connext Review

Connext Review

If you owned a personal computer in the early 90s you might just remember a good old classic like Pipe Mania (also known as Pipe Dreams). This puzzler required players to lay down a path of pipes to reach a goal, sometimes with hilariously convoluted results. Connext by Josh Nadelberg is a game with roots in Pipe Mania and is just as addictive as ever. Players are given a large hexagonal grid to lay out the tiles randomly assigned to them. The field can be dragged around or zoomed in…

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 by Far East Asia Development is a pure puzzle experience. This isn't the kind of game that appeals to many people, but anyone who has enjoyed games like PathPix will enjoy the simple challenge that Chrome-8 provides. Each puzzle represents a web of links used to shift the colored orbs on screen. Your goal is to align the colors in such a way that no two colors are linked. This sounds murderously difficult, but two game modes (and a total of 300 puzzles) are available to warm…

Birdie In Trouble Review

Birdie In Trouble Review

It's stating the obvious, but puzzle games are often hard to wrap your head around. Past the initial stages you're left spending more time staring at a screen than you are actually playing the game. Birdie In Trouble by Klik! Games encourages players to a bit of trial and error as you send your little chick back home, which is at least more exciting than waiting for the cogs to shift in your brain. Jumping in to the 75 available levels couldn't be easier, with players invited to touch…

Likwid Review

Likwid Review

Fans of music based games and abstract puzzle solving will probably look at Likwid by FunMobility and say, 'Oh yeah, I've played that game before'. But instead of pointing fingers over who did what first, lets just admit that there's something about this particle-stream gameplay that's positively fascinating to play with. Instead of pretending to play an instrument with taps or swipes, players need to activate cogs by passing particles of the correct color over them. This is done by m…

Blast Off Review

Blast Off Review

Physics is your friend. That is to say, forces related to physics like gravity are a small comfort for those of us terrestrially bound. For those flying around tiny clusters of super-dense planetoids, black holes and white holes while rescuing the occasional astronaut, physics can be a royal pain in the rear-end. Blast Off by Halfbrick Studios is a physics based puzzle game that combines action elements to provide a devilish challenge. Blast Off uses a single-touch system, propelling…

PuzzleManiak Review

Review Alexandre Minard By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
PuzzleManiak Review

I'll confess, it's not often that I truly enjoy a puzzle game because I honestly prefer my games to be more... 'gamey'. Puzzle Maniak by Alexandre Minard is an assorted collection of borrowed puzzle ideas with some unique ones thrown in that keeps you pulled in through its sheer polish and clever online features. Instead of being a hodge-podge of half-finished games Puzzle Maniak manages to implement each puzzle completely along with customizable difficulty levels. You're almost guara…

Electric Box Review

Review Candystand.com By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
Electric Box Review

Games like 'The Incredible Machine' were great fun as you got to use a bunch of simple objects to manipulate your way to a goal. Electric Box is quite similar, only the goal is to transfer the flow of electricity from the on switch to the target using different kinds of energy conductors and transferal devices. Control is all touch and drag. The puzzles are layed out on a grid, and all the objects (from steam machines to magnets to lasers) can be placed anywhere, tapped on for a descr…

Artilect Pro Review

Review Yuri Brigance By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
Artilect Pro Review

Artilect by Atomic Cactus is a puzzle game in which you take turns against a human or AI controlled opponent, trying to change the colour of orbs to reach your opponent's goal. It's also very difficult as the AI is brutal even on the early stages. What then is it, that makes this game so hard to put down? Control is all touch based. Each level consists of green orbs between the two goals, with the game starting in the middle. Upon touching a green orb, you change it to your colour, dr…

Cubetrix 3D Review

Review Mobicle Co.,Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
Cubetrix 3D Review

Did you ever play a match three gem game and think, "I want these colours to be in cubes that i can push from the outside?" No? Well too bad cause that's what Cubetrix 3D is. Those tricky cubes need to be pushed to form lines of three of the same colour which will then explode, sending the rest careening together, hopefully leading to more explosions. Ok, so maybe the tone is a little melodramatic, but that's the basic idea. There are three buttons on screen. Two are used to move the…

Chromixa Review

Review Wet Nose Design Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
Chromixa Review

Chromixa began life as an art installation based on creator Simon Watson's fascination with light. A handful of development time later and we have a light based puzzle game for the iphone. The goal is to create shapes of a solid colour out of overlaying smaller pieces of different colours, much like a jigsaw. Control is all touch and drag. Upon touching a piece, it can be dragged anywhere on screen or the large wheel can be used to rotate it. If you ever get confused about which colou…

De Blob Revolution Review

Review THQ Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
De Blob Revolution Review

That colourful blob freeing his people from the mediocrity of grayscale is back on the iphone, but this time round, it's a puzzle game. There are buildings where the graydians are trapped by INKT agents, and Blob has to make his way to the exit on each level while rescuing as many of them as possible. You can either tap or drag to lay down Blob's path. The puzzle element enters in that Blob cannot cross his own painted path once it's been layed down, so you have to work out the optima…
