EZ Atom

EZ-Atom-Alternate-View-2

EZ Atom by Doug Engel is a stunning looking puzzle, produced by PuzzleMaster in Canada. Doug is known for his elegant and exquisite puzzle designs, mostly in metal, as you can see here. I have a few of those in my collection.

The EZ Atom is comprised by three metal pieces coated in bronze, silver and gold, plus a blue marble, which is trapped in the middle. Looking like an impossible task at first, the object is to take all the pieces apart and free the marble.

The design principle reminds of Constantin’s Sputnik Ball, also [Read More...]

Dodge Ball: Simple Fun Free Puzzle Game

Dodge ball

The title of this free puzzle game is Dodge Ball: Simple Fun Free Puzzle Game.  The object is to stay alive by avoiding the spiked twirling stars that come from the right  side of the screen.

This is NOT a tilt puzzle. You must drag the red circle around the screen.

You score points by staying alive. Right now I’m the high scorer with 2800 points.

The graphics are a bit boring. At the start of each game, while the spiked stars are hurtling toward you, and ad appears! Click to get rid of it before your man is impaled!

Trick Bolt #1

Trick Bolt #1

The Trick Bolt Puzzle #1 from Puzzle Master is an excellent puzzle or brainteaser. It is very well made and is 3″ long and weighs 9.6 ounces. Made of some kind of solid metal and sort of gold or brown in color. It is the type of puzzle you can carry around in your pocket and bring out when with friends. The object seems and looks simple, as all one has to do is to remove the split ring or washer. The head of the bolt is solidly attached, so it is obvious that [Read More...]

Arrow – Trinity

Trinity

Start in the top left-hand corner and find a route to the bottom right-hand corner. As with the other arrow mazes (see Arrow Mazes) you have to follow the direction of each arrow, but there’s an additional rule that makes this maze considerably harder: you must choose three blue arrows, followed by three red arrows, followed again by three blue arrows, and so on until you reach the goal.

Dublox

dublox4

I know that I have played Bloxorz before and when Dublox said that it was like Bloxorz but better I was sceptical.  So I got the game and started to play it.  I don’t know about this game being any better then Bloxorz but it sure is just as much fun and ads a new challenge to the game.  I will have to say that the graphics are a lot more animated in Dublox then in Bloxorz.  I quite enjoyed that aspect of the game.  I like the music a bit better then Bloxorz.

I really can’t complain very much [Read More...]

Jelly Blocks: puzzle app for iphone, ipad

Jelly Blocks 0

Jelly Blocks comes from Michael Le.  It’s a bit like sokoban: move the objects so that all the blue squares connect. Then do the same for the other colors.

 

All the shapes move simultaneously, one step at a time.  The black shapes never move. The purple shapes have to be pushed by another piece.

There are 96 levels and most of them have multiple solutions.  That’s okay. Some of them will get you thinking.  I’ve solved all of them.  I’m hoping that Michael or another puzzle app designer will produce more levels.

 

Bottom Line: Jelly Blocks is a [Read More...]
