Glühbirne (Light Bulb)

Gluhbirne (Light Bulb)

I have reviewed many great puzzles by the German designer Jean Claude Constantin and the Glühbirne (German for Light Bulb) is no exception.

As of now, this is my favorite Wire/String Puzzle. The design concept and theme is so original and funny, it captures a puzzler’s attention right away. The wire frame in the shape of a light bulb is perfectly achieved. In fact, it’s just about the same size as a standard light bulb and the goal is to remove the wooden plug and rope from its wire frame.

The puzzle itself is not very difficult [Read More...]

Woodhead: puzzle app for iphone, ipad

woodhead1

Matthew Klundt, of Terrible Games, recently sent me a promo code to play-test his puzzle app Woodhead.

Woodhead is a sliding tiles puzzle that uses the principle of: a tile will slide all the way until it hits a wall or solid object. We’ve seen several dozen of these types of puzzles before. A favorite is Blockhouse.

Woodhead has some old and new, interesting elements.

1. The object is to swipe Woodhead to the exit and picking up jewels first. Nothing new here.

2. On some levels, Woodhead must first pick up a key to unlock a door. We’ve seen [Read More...]

How many faces do you see?

02011

I can remember seeing this optical illusion at an indoor golf course that I used to go to.  They had optical illusions all over the walls.  I would spend all my time, in between hitting the golf ball, looking at them and wondering how they would make them.  This one has an added twist to it though.  There is an extra face.  So just how many do you see?

For more optical illusions like this go to eyetricks.com.

Happy puzzling.

Merry Go Round Puzzle

Merry Go Round Puzzle

Hello puzzle fans. This week I’m going to talk about a puzzle by a German puzzle company called Philos. This is a string puzzle and the goal is to remove the rope from the puzzle. Puzzle Master rates this a 7 out of 10 as far as difficulty. I like the look of this puzzle as well as the sound it makes while I was attempting to solve it. The tangling wood spheres will occasionally make contact with the pillars. The sound reminded me of wooden chimes. I have to admit that I find string puzzles difficult and I have [Read More...]

Machinarium

Machinarium

What can I say about this game other then its absolutely brilliant and refreshing.  This game has versions for Pc, Linux, Mac, Android and iOS.  Machinarium is not your typical adventure game at all.  I have been playing adventure games since 1992 and out of all the great games that I have played this one is in the top 3.  I would only put the first time I played Myst and Pandora Directive as better games.  Those are older games though.  Welcome to the new, out of the box thinking of adventure games from Indie projects.

Ok [Read More...]

Nifty Fifty

Nifty Fifty

Today, I have chosen to review another great design by Jean Claude Constantin. If you read my blog regularly, then you know I’m a big fan of his puzzles and I’m yet to find one that I don’t like. As of now, I have about 30 of his creations and from what I gathered, this number doesn’t account for more than 20% of all his designs. That says a lot about the sheer variety of puzzle ideas he came up with all these years.

The puzzle I have is called Nifty Fifty, and for those who [Read More...]
