Gone Buggy is a packing puzzle consisting of mostly 1, 2 & 4 sized tiles in the shapes of bugs.
The objective is to fit them into the grid.
If you can’t do it, then you can fry a bug into smaller bits with the magnifying glass.
As you can see, there are 99 levels. I’ve played Gone Buggy for about 4 hours and solved 44 levels.
I normally eschew this type of ‘fill the tray with pieces’ puzzle. Gone Buggy has a certain flair. Perhaps it’s the fact that it gives you 1 piece at a time. I think [Read More...]
SEQ comes from Thomas Castel and is an interesting puzzle app! The object is to draw paths, counting down, from each colored number to any of the zeros on the grid. Here’s where it gets interesting: some squares can/must be used by both sequences. And the key is figuring them all out. SEQ has 160 levels: I’ve done 122 levels so far.
The first 40 levels are free. I enjoyed them, so I paid .99 for the next batch, and then another .99 for the remainder. Definitely worth your time. SEQ could land on the list of Best Puzzle Apps of 2012. Tom Cutrofello [Read More...]
The game is called Unblock Me Free. The game can be played on either the Android or the iPhone systems. There is also a non free version for the iPhone. In this review I will cover the Android version.
Since I like challenging puzzles of any kind, I was drawn to games like this. For me there is nothing like sitting down and finding a few pieces on a board with one challenge to be solved. Take the one piece and move it out of the play area. This all [Read More...]
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...]

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.
Arrow Command is a set of 120 maze puzzles. The Big Red Arrow must get to the red circle, while picking up stars along the way. You must place little red arrows to guide the Big Arrow home. We’ve seen this type of puzzle before. Galaxy Express comes to mind. Arrow Command has a few nice features: 1. Multiple colored arrows. The very easy levels have just one Big Red Arrow to get to its destination. Other levels have blue and green arrows that must get to their respective circles. 2. Wormholes: we’ve seen this before. 3. Toggling Arrows. Suppose 2 Big Green Arrows both [Read More...]
