Xploding Puzzle comes from http://www.plungeinteractive.com/news.php. The object is to eliminate all the squares. Tap on a red square – which is always numbered with a 1, and it will explode and then send red missiles in each direction. The blue squares need to be hit twice. Other squares need to be hit 3 times.
Last year I saw at least 3 or 4 of these types of puzzles. I believe that those grid sizes were all uniform: 7×9 maybe? Xploding Puzzle: the grid configurations are more creative. And the red arrows that represent the missiles are nice.
There are some [Read More...]

Sporos is really good set of puzzles that are similar to the 8 Queens puzzle. In the 8 Queens puzzle, you must place 8 Queens on the board so that every square is attacked and none of the Queens are attacking each other.
Sporos is similar. You are given 2 or 3 ‘Sporos’ and must place them carefully. Some Sporos point in all directions. Others do not.

LynzFree comes from Matthew Little.
It is an edge-matching puzzle with funky colors. There are 3 levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. In the beginner levels: trade the 9 tiles in a 3×3 grid. In the intermediate level: same as beginner, but some tiles can also rotate.
Advanced levels: they’re not ready.
I’ve been doing edge-matching puzzles for many years. It’s not something I actively seek out. However, I do like these graphics. Right now I’ve done 2 of the beginner and 2 of the intermediate levels.
It’s a free puzzle app game. Kids will like this.
Hex Maze comes from Xia Pei Ming. It’s not a maze. There’s nothing maze-y about it! I suspect that the author used ‘maze’ as a synonym for puzzle.
Rearrange the tiles so that each one has the correct number of tiles surrounding it. For example, do you see the yellow 2? It’s good because it’s next to 2 tiles. Red means that too many tiles are touching it. Green – not enough tiles.
We’ve seen this type of puzzle many times before with a rectangular grid. So it’s nice to see this. Also, the graphics are good.
In terms of ‘puzzle [Read More...]
