Fragmental 3D - Build Lines with Falling Blocks! Review

Review Aesthetic Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Fragmental 3D - Build Lines with Falling Blocks! Review

Recently we reviewed a couple 3D Tetris titles with Tetra3D leading the charge for a fun revival of this classic twist on an old-school arcade puzzle game. Given these releases it would be unfair to forget to review Fragmental 3D by Aesthetic Interactive, especially when this title made its debut earlier, making the comparison between these games quite interesting to say the least. Fragmental 3D differs in its approach by using default controls that are quite unique, requiring players…

LandFormer Review

LandFormer Review

Elegant, thought provoking playground-style puzzle games really get my brain to light up like a Christmas Tree and not since Path Pix have I felt so excited about a game like LandFormer by Streaming Colour Studios. In this puzzler, players will need to use a limited set of tools to raise and lower the landscape in a 5x5 grid to return the world back to a pristine flat plain. There are several restrictions that help to limit the complexity with only six tools in total, each with their…

RollOut Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month 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, 4 years, 2 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, 4 years, 2 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, 4 years, 2 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

Review Josh Nadelberg By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
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

Review Klik! Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
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

Review FunMobility By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
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

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
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…

Review Alexandre Minard By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months 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, 4 months 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, 4 months 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…
